I had booked afternoon tea for 3 as a birthday present and we had a great experience. As expected, everything was beautifully managed from arrival to departure and we couldn't have been more pleased. If only tea every day could be like that!

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.

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.

    My daughter & I were so impressed with the friendly and efficient service throughout our afternoon tea experience at this wonderful hotel. All of the food presented to us was delicious. More sandwiches were offered which I thought was nice but we didn’t need any more. We enjoyed a bottle of house champagne which I would recommend. The Goring Afternoon Tea is the best I have experienced and I would absolutely recommend it!

  • ((((( 21 September 2018 by Claire from Rome

    Afternoon tea was delicious and the service made our visit as special as it could ever be, thanks to the staff, who were extremely professional but still managed to have the right balance of friendliness. Quality of food was top class and quantity was excellent with the amazing possibility of requesting more.

    I can think of only two things that would improve an already wonderful experience

    1. A complimentary refill of champagne
    2. When booking perhaps a choice of where to sit. I would have personally chosen to sit in the living room with the sofas and fireplace and candeliers which gave a more luxurious feel.

    We had a precious experience by having ecxellent food, service and atmosphere.
    Especially, original tea, cakes and chicken sandwich was really good.

    Quality was very good, but quantity very disappointing. I ordered 2 teas, but the quantity was barely enough for 1.

    Afternoon tea in Goring does not require recommendations. Because this is one of the best in the world of such events.
    The sandwiches melted in the mouth, the freshest scones and cakes were tender, Bollinger Rose enchanting and backed up by the magical service of the magical staff. Be sure to return!)

    Afternoon tea at The Goring was sublime. It was perfect. The staff are wonderfully polite and attentive and a lot of care and attention is given from the moment you walk in.

    The staff is very attentive. The cakes and scones are delicious. We can order more if we need, it's include in the price. The place is so romantic, quiet .Very chic.

  • ((((* 31 August 2018 by Jessica from London

    Scones and jam were really good, and terrace setting looking onto the garden is very pleasant. Service was impeccable. You only get one of each cake to start with but they repeatedly offer you extra of everything, not that we could fit it in! I personally prefer savory pastries to sandwiches, but the sandwiches were nice too.

  • ((((( 30 August 2018 by Adrian from Esher

    Excellent afternoon tea at Goring, quality sandwich fillings, jam and scones, and pastries plus choice of teas. Friendly but polite service, no shortage of food and drink refills.Comfortable seats and pleasant atmosphere.
