Fabulous food well served. One of the better meals I have had .The beef wellington was so tender and moist and the puddings delicious. The staff were very attentive without being intrusive. Worth a visit

Literally cannot fault this place. From the pre arrival welcome call to the bill arriving it was superb. The Beef Wellington was supreme, and for just over £50 a head for 3 courses it was excellent value for money. Will definitely return and recommend 100%.

This was a great place for dinner and a wonderful experience. The setting is very grand, the bar is comfortable and inviting with lovely seating areas. The dining room was very elegant and the service second to none. The menu is quite extensive with traditional dishes and perhaps could do with some more spicy dishes but the food was very... More

I went to the Goring with some family friends and had the most exquisite food and the most attentive service from the staff. Hopefully i will get another opportunity in my lifetime to visit again. The décor is stunning.

You get what you pay. The food is executed well but nothing it is not exciting. It seems like an old elegant place that needs to spice up the menu to attract different kind of people. People like myself, who likes interesting food. With a twist and still delicious. The food is good, well presented and the service is excellent.... More

We took a friend for her 50th birthday dinner. We had a great welcome, very relaxed in such stylish dining room. A good choice for the menu, I had the lobster omelette with lobster salad for the main course - it was amazing. Great choice of wines - highly recommend.

I've had many afternoon teas in some of the top London Hotels but none can compare to the one at The Goring!! Surroundings, food and service were faultless and the staff were absolutely wonderful. We were made to feel very welcome and wouldn't hesitate to recommend afternoon tea here to anyone. Thank you to everyone who made our experience so... More

On Monday I lunched with a friend for the second time at the Goring Hotel in London. From the moment my toe was on the entrance step I was treated like a lady. The doorman opened the door and greeted us. The head waiter asked if we would like to handover our coats and further asked if we would like... More
