The Gore hotel's restaurant is a popular place for pre-theatre dining in Kensington Gore / Queen's Gate area.
I was not there for the pre-theatre, rather was on a lovely night out to dinner. When I arrived I did feel a sense of hurry as diners came and went in bursts all in anticipation of the show around the corner at the Royal Albert Hall, but I was quite relaxed at my table. This sense of needing-to-get-out-the-door did matriculate over into the almost over-attentiveness of the staff as we were often approached multiple time in rapid succession, but it did not detract from nor dampen the classic atmospheric ambiance of the place or the food.
Overall the menu was inventive and had some safe but with-a-twist, well-rounded choices. The house wine was very good, and staff were very efficient. The manager of the hotel introduced herself to me personally, and was as professional an lovely as can be.
The bar in the room next door is also a great little spot for a nightcap if you ever find yourself in an otherwise sparse for choice area.
I have many friends who have stayed in the hotel and return year on year with nothing but good things to say. The Gore is definitely doing all the right things whether it be a stay, or a just a night out a pleasurable experience.
