SquareMeal Review of The Goring (bar)

It’s almost inconceivable that there should be a grand private country house within a stone’s throw of Victoria station, but The Goring has all the necessary attributes, from a warm cosy drawing room and terraces for balmier weather to a garden with ducks waddling across the lawn. The bar’s line-up of Champagne is astounding and the barmen are adept at mixing and shaking anything that takes your fancy. Ultra-traditional, but also super-friendly, this gorgeous bolthole is equally appealing for a quiet business drink or a jolly get-together with a (smart-ish) bunch of friends. The simple bar menu has something for all comers (from caviar to soup of the day), all beautifully done in an understated way – they only boast about their connection with their royal neighbours when it comes to the “fabulous” afternoon tea.

TomTom silver reviewer 15 December 2014

This bar is always packed and for good reason. It embraces you. The grand, slightly chintzy surrounds seem just right for this classic hotel with royal connections. Staff go out of their way to help you find a table if the place is full. The drinks list is spot on, as too the bar food. There is an intrinsic generosity about the place, epitomized by little shepherds pies that were given out to guests on our latest visits. What's not to like?

It is one of the remaining bastions of old school which is proper throughout. The ambiance, the visitors the service and the vine list are truly outstanding. It has a variety of sittings and the staff is very thoughtful (apart from some temporary college types). I would highly recommend to anyone appreciating the Great Britain syle.
