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.

    The best afternoon tea I’ve ever attended! I brought my mother who was visiting me and we were both very impressed by the level of service and attentiveness we received. We felt welcome from the very start and they had taken into consideration my requests I had sent through with the booking. I highly recommend going if you want to experience a real high class afternoon tea.

    What could be finer than Afternoon Tea on Valentine's Day at The Goring? Perhaps Tea any day. Pink champagne (so seldom seen), amuse bouche, ambrosial finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream, pastries that are as beautiful as they are delicious. Oh, yes, and a selection of fine teas. The setting is handsome; service is pleasant and professional. Small private dining rooms are available.

    A wonderful experience from the start. Very attentive staff from the doorman to the waitress and waiter. A beautiful room, and very calm even though people were arriving all the time. The tea was very delicious, great sandwiches , moist scones with amazing jams and of course the cakes finished an amazing experience. We ere not rushed but were asked if we needed anything replenished and of course were very quick to pour more tea. This afternoon was a thank you to my 2 best friends for all they have done to support me over the years with my Mum. Thank you
