Inside the stunning Edwardian Goring Hotel, Afternoon Tea at The Goring exudes an air of regal elegance. Close to Buckingham Palace, The Goring serves the finest quintessentially English afternoon tea with some modern surprises, to enjoy in the superior setting.

An established favourite, The Goring lounge bar exudes elegance and grace, featuring ornate Swarovski chandeliers and magnificent furnishings throughout. Beautifully bathed in sunlight by day and opulently aglow by night, The Goring London boasts lavish gardens where you can dine al fresco.

Afternoon tea, sandwiches and cakes are served in the enchanting garden bar and terrace, enticing you to indulge in a selection of finger sandwiches and some delicious innovative treats including the bubblegum meringue and mulled wine and pear jelly drizzled in a cinnamon cream. There is a handpicked wine list, with many labels available by the glass.

The Cresta Bar is now open from 5pm Monday to Saturday until early 2017. Discover a variety of Cresta-themed cocktails, accompanied by Swiss-inspired canapés from Chef Shay Cooper.

A stone’s throw from Buckingham Palace and the Royal Parks, The Goring is just a 5-minute walk from Victoria Rail Station.

    Wonderful service from start to finish. Elegant and charming surroundings. Lovely food. Can't fault it.

    It was lovely. The staff were helpful and attentive. The pace was leisurely and the food delicious. The scones, though small, were warm and soft and everything was in plentiful supply.

    An expensive but lovely experience.

    Thank you for a great afternoon tea experience! Every staff was very kind and welcoming. The food and tea was very delicious. We stayed at the hotel 20 years ago and when we told about it to the concierge at the clerk, he gave us information about the sheep makers. We weren't able to finish all of the food but we were able to take it home in a book. The food we took home wasn't that much so it was shaken inside the box which kind of ruined the looks of it when we open the box to eat it later. But other than that, the whole experience was very satisfying.

    Great lounge - overprice regarding the food. Selection of tee is not known by all servers.
    (Scones ordinary and desserts not on the top), Sandwiches really good.

    Delicious Smoked Salmon sandwiches and lovely pink champagne.

  • ((((* 7 February 2017 by Carole Morganstein from London, City of London

    We all thoroughly enjoyed the ambience and experience of tea at The Goring - it was very relaxing. However, we were offered water and, although we said yes, we had to ask three times before it appeared. We thought the sandwiches were excellent (although the cauliflower was not our favourite), as were the scones, but we were a little disappointed with the cakes.
