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.

    I was interested in booking this afternoon tea in a Japanese magazine and made a reservation.
    I was impressed with the cute interior and the wonderful service.
    I felt the cake was a bit too sweet, but all the other dishes were delicious. Especially scones were the best.

    Excellent service, staff couldn't do enough, even gave us an umbrella to keep due to heavy rain!!

    Impeccable service, not overbearing but made afternoon tea the best dining experience. The details here made all the difference, from the tea being topped off to my napkin folded when I went to the bathroom. I left in awe of the hotel, the dining room, the service, and especially the food.

    The staff from the moment the three of us arrived were so friendly, efficient and attentive. The staff who waited on our table exuded professionalism, first class. The afternoon tea was an absolute delight, the sandwiches in particular were so substantial. One of our party is a dairy free diner and she remarked that the food provided as a dairy free diner was truly exceptional. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience in true traditional London surroundings.
