The Goring is London's oldest and favourite privately owned 5 star de Luxe hotel and for almost a century, four generations of the Goring family have run the hotel. According to them, the secret of success has been their understanding of what guests expect - luxurious comfort, good food and drink and most attentive service - features that have made it one of London's best.
David Linley said, 'The Goring is one of the last family-run hotels. It was about trying to preserve tradition. This is the best in London'. It is not surprising that The Goring was voted 4th best in the British Isles by the Conde Nast Traveller Readers Choice Award. And US Travel and Leisure Magazine listed it among its choice of the 100 best hotels in the world.
Seventy one individually designed rooms and suites are presented in an elegantly classic English style and many overlook the gardens and enjoy a private terrace. Accommodation there includes complimentary membership at a nearby fitness club.
Fay Maschler wrote, 'I love the family-run Goring....an oasis of gentility'. That is The Goring. Not ostentatious, not stuffy, a very gentlemanly place with lashings of five star quality. At the Tio Pepe ITV Awards Ceremony, early in 2005, The Goring received the award of 'Best British Restaurant'.
The hotel’s fabulous Dining Room was created by the world-famous designer and cabinet maker, David Linley and his talented team. The Dining Room combines state-of-the-art modernity with timeless, classical elegance. The room is decorated in shades of biscuit, cream and caramel. Amazing Swarovski chandeliers float above the diners and change colour, according to the amount of light streaming through the large windows.
In the Dining Room, quiet waiters on castored feet hurry to and fro under the watchful eye of the Maitre'd. The famous menu changes with the seasons and takes its cue from the very best kind of British country house cooking. This is British food exquisitely cooked and superbly presented; this is cooking that delights the critic as well as the simply hungry.
Specialities include the sensational glazed Scottish lobster omelette, beef Wellington, game (in season), poached fillet of Loch Duart salmon, and braised shoulder of Castle of Mey beef. Puddings are a speciality and include poached pear with orange sponge, caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream and a fantastic selection of cheeses from across the British Isles.
The wine list is one of the finest in London, and is personally selected by Jeremy Goring and Managing Director, David Morgan-Hewitt. The Goring is unusual in laying down wine for the future enjoyment of its guests, which means that the prices are often more reasonable than in other quality establishments.
Their four private dining rooms will accommodate between four and one hundred guests for breakfast, luncheons, dinners, cocktail parties and wedding receptions. Click on their attractive and clearly set out Website
