Customer reviews for Afternoon Tea at The Goring
((((( 22 October 2016 by Marcus Gottwald from Bissendorf, Germany
It was an excellent experience. It was more a romantic candlelight afternoon tea than an ordinary one. We also got a complementary glass of champain just because of some issues with the lights. Our experience in one word: Brilliant!

It was wonderful and much better than ever imagined!!! The ambiance was delightful and our waitress was great. We were seated in the back room that was so very cheerful and we were able to gaze out into the backyard where a birthday party was being held with balloons so the setting was perfect. The service was impreccable and the sandwiches, scones and pastries were outstanding!

Very nice afternoon tea but service was not as good as it should have been for this high quality hotel.

Finding the Goring was not easy... but once we found it, it was a wonderful jewel in the city. We were welcomed nicely and sat at a great table in the solarium. Our wait staff was French and they were just okay. Specifically, I'm confident we were ignored on a couple of occasions when I was trying to wave them down for service. I was two feet away and she heard me but turned away. As well, we were charged for a second glass of champagne without being told so. At one point, a male server named Philip took over and he was so friendly and helpful. He turned the day into a great memory. Over all it was a delightful afternoon with yummy treats. Wish the servers were nicer and more accommodating to strangers.

Beautiful hotel & excellent service. Food presentation was lovely but would be nicer to have some "lighter" options available for those people who prefer (or must have) healthier choices.

Excellent service and selection of cakes and sandwiches.

We had a lovely afternoon tea with the best coronation chicken I've ever tasted and delightful range of teas. Staff were a perfect mix of formal and friendly - and had the coolest sheep ties!
