Went there the other day, it was lovingly warm, stylish deco, and very good British food. I am surprised how is not a Michelin star restaurant!!! I recommend the Sea buckthorn Baked Alaska… one of the best ever I had!

We were staying in London ,and having eaten at a lot of restaurants , we decided on the Goring this time, We were not disappointed from the moment you stepped through the doors of this opulent hotel you were made welcome. The restaurant was lovely the food superb, the waiters very friendly and helpful. Will hopefully will return.

We enjoyed the set lunch in the Dining Room. It was exceptionally good British food - great fish courses, superb roast Romney Marsh lamb from the trolley, and attractive desserts; wine excellent and served with care by the sommelier. We lazed the whole afternoon - what more can one ask for? Absolutely fabulous
