I came here with a friend as a treat to help beat the January blues. The service we received was first class and the food was amazing. I would definitely recommend coming here.

I had organized a breakfast meeting here as it's a smart hotel conveniently situated. Breakfast was a massive disappointment -- notwithstanding the fact that the hotel recognised it had done poorly and didn't charge us. We were five people. Full English breakfast is GBP 32 per person so one expects a certain standard. Two people ordered boiled eggs -- when... More

This is an excellent choice if you are looking for understated English dining. The food and service are first class. We both selected the Beef Wellington which was first class and the portion size made sure we did not leave hungry. The wine selection is also excellent and at prices that are not eye watering. Ladies may need a cover... More

Thank you to The Goring for a lovely meal and celebration birthday cake dessert for my darling daughter Abigail's 18th birthday. We love it here for both food and service. Let them know if you have a special event to celebrate and they will make it even more memorable! Fabulous.

We ate at the goring on a Saturday night, the place was extremely busy not that you could tell by the level of service and quality of food! The attention to detail was impeccable, we felt like royalty! The Chicken soup was amazing!

Lovely staff and welcome - enjoyed sitting in the bar with a cocktail. We had a promotion through bookatable, and I don't believe that should mean you have less than top quality food. So I'm reviewing this as I would anywhere. £55 for 3 courses and 2 glasses of wine. Lovely deal. But... The food was at best average. The... More

We stayed at the Goring over New Year and have reviewed the hotel separately on Trip Advisor. We had a selection of meals at The Goring - the food was always fresh, carefully cooked and beautifully presented. Firstly, breakfast. I started with the fresh berries then the English - sausage and bacon both full of flavour and well complemented by... More

My children used to call it the Boring Goring. In a way they were right. It has achieved a consistent excellence and can be absolutely relied on. We wanted something special on a Sunday night and decided on the Goring.It could have been one of those evenings when the chef was off and the staff wishing they were as well.... More
