Restaurant description

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.

A stone’s throw from Buckingham Palace and the Royal Parks, The Goring is just a 5-minute walk from Victoria Rail Station.

    Exceptional service from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. Very attentive staff and delicious afternoon tea. I highly recommend the Goring for a girls day, date, birthday treat or any other celebrations.

    Lovely service and explanation of each course by the staff. Particularly loved the endless refills of tea, cakes, scones, and sandwiches which was generously offered by staff at all opportunities. Tableware was beautifully offset by the decorations and surroundings. I particularly loved the painting of the sea sunset, greenery and the glass lobsters in traps above. View from our table onto the garden was stunning - pity it was not the right weather for the windows to be left open. The only thing I could comment on was that the white bread for sandwiches did not seem as fresh as it could have been, seeded was fine.

    Lovely atmosphere, nice tea and food, very friendly staff. Unfortunately we sat in quite a dead corner so it was quite difficult to get the staffs attention for extra drinks and the bill. Other than that it was a lovely experience. It was also not a problem at all to get a vegan afternoon tea which was amazing.

    Fabulous birthday treat for my friend. As gorgeous as ever and Covid processes very user friendly. It was lovely also to see some of the staff who worked there last year.

    We had a lovely afternoon tea. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I particular like the Carmel desert (I can't remember what it was called) and the lemon meringue.

    Delightful way to spend an afternoon. Everything was Covid safe - but still it felt 'normal'. Staff were courteous - unobtrusive and smartly dressed! The plate of finger sandwiches was replenished - unexpected & very welcome. The Strawberry creme macaron was simply perfect. Such a range of teas to choose from

    Everything was just wonderful. Afternoon tea at the Goring is a lovely treat to anyone.

    The service was absolutely fantastic particularly given the incredibly difficult COViD protocols. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful (particularly Lee). It was a great touch to have the General Manager come round and thank everyone for their support given the hotel had only re-opened a week earlier. We really enjoyed the afternoon tea too. Thank you.
