Great place for the afternoon tea.
If there were live piano playing, it would be perfect!

    Well this turned in to a surprise baby shower and the Goring played their part in keeping it a surprise!! The food were fabulous, endless sandwiches which were the highlight for me, then yummy scones and great jam and clotted cream. I only tried a few of the pastries as I was full but they were all great too. All in all a very relaxed afternoon tea which was enjoyed thoroughly.

    Very friendly & efficient staff throughout, but the Door and Reception staff were exceptionally attentive. Decor of the hotel was warm and comforting, but needed some paint renewed in the garden room.
    Food was fresh and ample, but Champagne price was a little high.
    I expected to be able to buy a surprise present for my partner whilst there, but there was no shop - only an online facility, so that was a sale that was missed.

    It was a pure delight to visit this classic hotel, and the afternoon tea was lovely, with the attentive staff as a finishing touch. Pure magic on New Year's eve.

    We had a lovely afternoon. We were in the ‘orangery’ overlooking the garden so we could see the Christmas lights. The afternoon tea was delicious and the staff very attentive. We would definitely return and have lunch or dinner there.
