We have been to the bar at The Goring for pre dinner drinks before and thoroughly enjoyed the experience so decided to go back for dinner and drinks and we were not disappointed.

Did not stay here, but the restaurant is something really special. The Gorings' set lunch menu isn't cheap but I think it is excellent value for money for three courses given the quality and the beautiful presentation of the cooking. Loved the service which was discreet but very attentive. There are plenty of good places to eat around Belgravia but... More

Just over a year since I was last at The Goring and I was eager to see their new decor.

Having stayed in many London hotels over three decades, I have found "home" away from home over the past ten years. Located just around the corner from Buckingham Palace, it is a treat like no other.

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.
