One measure of a very good restaurant is the way it recovers from hiccups and that grande dame The Goring in Victoria emerged from a recent lunch covered in glory.

4 of us went to The Goring in January, we did have high expectations but left feeling it wasnt quite up to what we had hoped. The service was tentative and the decor etc was very nice but the food lacked creativity or full flavours to warrant the hotel. My partner had a rabbit terrine which she didnt think was... More

I was invited to choose a lunchtime venue in advance located in Victoria and I booked a party of clients in the Goring for Lunch. I had heard how good the service was but not the quality of the food trolley and the red wine. Cant even find fault with the way it was served - absolutely mouthwatering. it was... More

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.
