Popped in for a drink and a bite and stayed all evening. Great bar menu, good food and spectacular dessert. Excellent service as expected. Will be returning.

I've been to many afternoon teas and had booked the Goring as a treat for my mums birthday. Welcome upon arrival was great, very friendly and welcoming... following that the experience was decidedly substandard. The food for tea was really not up to scratch compared to other 5* hotels, who offers their guests cauliflower and curry sandwiches!!! The rest of... More

For the last 15 years we have made it a family tradition to have a special afternoon tea as a celebration of our eldest daughters Birthday which falls on Christmas eve. We have therefore enjoyed building up comparables of other lovely London venues,the Ritz, Browns, Claridges,The Savoy for example and this is all part of the fun. We had to... More

Our first experience of tea for two at the Goring and not disappointed! As you would expect the greeting and service is excellent. Depending on the package you have paid for (or have been given in our case) you get a glass of champagne to start with, There is then a wide variety of teas to choose from which are... More

I visited The Goring for Christmas Afternoon Tea yesterday. The hotel was beautifully decorated for Christmas, with a lovely open fire and striking real tree in reception. The perfect way to get you feeling festive. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. We also had a cocktail prior to the Afternoon Tea, which was very... More

Christmas afternoon tea at The Goring - a perfect start to Christmas. Warm fire, relaxed and welcoming ambiance, perfect balance of attentive but not invasive service. Excellent sandwiches, melt-in-your-mouth mince pies, delicious cakes and delicate blend of tea. Really appreciated not being rushed and the genuine friendliness of the staff. Thank you - looking forward to the next visit.

Very cozy bar area with a fireplace that stays open 24 hours for hotel guests. Not a rowdy scene but rather a sophisticated place to drink. The night bar manager - Morgan - is quite friendly and attentive.

I dropped in here twice recently for a pre-lunch drink. I chose the champagne cocktail. It came with nice nibbles (refreshed when I had eaten the first lot). Kind service. Very pleasant atmosphere - but get there early because the bar fills up fast, or make sure yu reserve a table. In my opinion, you should avoid the martini cocktails:... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
