Run by the Goring family since 1910, this Edwardian treasure holds a Royal Warrant and remains one of London's most luxurious and impeccably English hotels. The glossy bar is perfect for a glass of bubbly before heading for the dining room; designed by the Queen’s nephew David Linley, it’s a lavish space with grand proportions, a luminous gold-and-white colour scheme, ornate plasterwork, Swarovski chandeliers and precisely laid tables. It is all kept running as smoothly as a Swiss watch by a skilled service team. Executive Chef Shay Cooper strikes a well-poised balance between modernist freshness and respect for tradition that suits a place like The Goring, and the results are impressive. There’s plenty to applaud in a starter of pressed game terrine with crispy fried rabbit, pickled vegetables and grape must dressing, then main course brings a medley of roast Cornish cod partnered luxuriously with lobster dumpling and bisque, young fennel and citrus oils, or two might share a classic fillet of beef Wellington. At the finishing line, a new-fangled spin on the trifle theme delivers decadent layers of black figs, gingerbread, caramel and buttermilk, or you might bow out with a zesty finale involving mascarpone and lime mousse partnered with citrus fruit sorbet and passionfruit.
