The Goring

Beeston Place, LONDON, SW1W 0JW

3 rosettes

Luxury hotels don't come much better than this Belgravia landmark, which opened its doors back in 1910. It emanates class and exquisite taste, with its fine period details, from coved ceilings to marble fireplaces, expensive furnishings and luxury fabrics. Start off with a glass of champagne or a cocktail in the warmly atmospheric bar before dining in the restaurant. Designed by Viscount Linley, with a relaxing decor of gold and white, ornate plasterwork, drapes at the windows and with impeccable service, it's full of light by day and lit by crystal chandeliers after dark. Tradition meets modernism on Shay Cooper's menus as he gives a creative tweak to the classical repertoire. Pressed rabbit terrine sounds a familiar enough starter, but it's served with pickled carrots, Welsh rarebit and mustard, while cured sea bream comes with pickled fennel, radish and lemon purée. Ingredients are of a top order, and techniques are unflinchingly spot on. Beef Wellington, lobster omelette with chips and lobster Caesar salad, and fallow deer with a glazed faggot, duxelle, quince and pine nuts are all up for grabs among main courses. Lunch brings on a rolling daily special - fish pie on Monday, for instance - and puddings and cheeses are wheeled round on a trolley.
