    We arrived a little early for our reservation but were ushered into a comfortable lounge and seated . We ordered drinks from the bar. The wait staff are pleasant, friendly and accommodating, nothing seemed to be too much trouble. I was a little apprehensive the atmosphere would be “stuffy” but was pleased to find this was not the case. We had the usual scones, jam and cream, finger sandwiches and little “jewel like” cakes. My husband had champagne. All was well presented and delicious. Definitly a treat for us!
    We wandered in the garden and considered a game of croquet, the hoops and mallets ready for use, but decided we did not really understand how to play. Would definitely recommend, if your budget allows, to try this exceptional English experience.

    The restaurant was very pretty and the setting very elegant. The food itself was not our favorite and I believe you should have a little variety and choice when charging this amount.

    Goring Bollinger Afternoon Tea to celebrate friends birthday, the best choice ever, as we had plenty of time to catch up as well. We were made truly welcome on arrival and when shown to our table. Our choice of tea from the menu was The Goring Afternoon Blend what a wonderful tea, just sorry we couldn’t buy some. The sandwiches were fresh, delicious and nice selection, the scones were light and enjoyable and to top it off the pastries. Absolutely excellent. To add to the special day my friend celebrated with a piece of cake with candle which just finished the afternoon beautifully for her. The service/attention of the staff was excellent. All in all a terrific time was had by both of us. Thank you The Goring.

    We had the afternoon tea. Overall the tea was lovely, there was a strange pea/salmon type mouse to start which we were not fans of but the rest was nice.

  • ((((* 9 May 2018 by Andrea from Bonn

    It was so fancy, I almost felt out of place. I have you know, this was our first afternoon tea ever, so we felt like total beginners - but also very welcomed by your staff, who is very professional and friendly. The place is VERY stylish and interesting, we enjoyed strolling around the place and the garden. Tea was lovely as well, the scones were the best I ever had, the pastries looked perfect, but could not compete with their taste, the sandwiches however were not that good. The bread was too soft actually. For people like us, that are able to afford this fancy experience once in their lives, it would be courteous to have the price of extra champagne noted down somewhere, this was quite a surprise to us.
