    Unfortunately the food, although beautifully presented, lacked the wow taste factor and we think our main waiter was either having an off day or it was just how he was. He didn’t smile, seemed overworked and rushed which was such a shame. It didn’t live up to my expectations at all, to the point where I actually checked afterwards that they did have a Michelin star!

    A lunch outing. No lunchtime table de haute option, so we were on the a'la carte. The main restaurant was closed due to a lack of customers. We were seated in the garden room (the space previously occupied by the fish restaurant). The service was faultless. Lobster omelete to start with, Beef Wellington main and a Bakewell Tart to finish. All washed down with a bottle of Pinot Noir. (almost forgot... plus a glass of Madeira with the dessert as recommended by the excellent sommelier !!) We chose the Goring because we were nervous of potential Covid 19 problems. A very enjoyable lunch, food faultless as usual.

    Unfortunately this was a bad experience for us. The service was good but food (fois gras parfait, scallop ceviche and chicken with leeks) was very average and certainly not to the standard you would expect from such a restaurant. Only good dish was the sole meuniere but I was a bit surprised when the bill arrived (£60 inc. service charge, price was not on the menu). You can certainly get similar quality for much cheaper. I do not recommend and will certainly not go back except for a drink at the cocktail bar which looks great.

    I would probably return to this restaurant but my last visit might very well deter me. On arrival I bashed my shins when I sat down at our table for two. Upon investigation I discovered that the table had been set so that the support struts of the trestle table block the area where the customer’s legs go. The waiter didn’t understand my problem so I was forced to display the issue by lifting the table cloth and then assist him turning our table by 90 degrees. The waiter who took our order was a rather aloof and unwelcoming host who lacked any warmth. Indeed, he was a little snippy when I asked for my foie gras to be accompanied by a glass of Sauternes. I found him to be an unpleasant sort of fellow by manner and demeanour. The food was lovely although both lamb dishes were a little underdone for our liking (we like our lamb pink but it was a little too rare to eat comfortably without a bit of a hard chew). I wouldn’t mention it other than along with the other issues I mention it made for an less than perfect evening. My wife ordered a cup of tea after our dessert and cheese (both of which were lovely) and I ordered an espresso martini. When they were served the tea wasn’t provided with any sugar or sweeteners or petit fours. When it dawned on my wife that the waiter had no intention of returning to our table with the aforementioned she flagged him down (eventually) and asked about sugar and petit fours. They were fetched without apology (and by my reckoning the petit fours weren’t at all up to Michelin star standard). Once the drinks were served we appeared to have become invisible and when I eventually managed to catch someone’s eye to ask for the bill - I paid it and we left without so much as a “good evening” from any member of the restaurant staff. I would like to return again, especially as the Beef Wellington I saw being served looked so splendid, but the matters that went awry, and the fashion in which they were handled rather puts me off a return.

    well where to start the dining room was empty when we went for dinner on Sunday. just 2 tables in the restaurant featuring rather loud Americans. then the starter came where my partner found a massive piece of crab shell in the starter. the beef wellington was rather good however not enough sauce. this was followed by desert which they brought the wrong desert for myself which i had not ordered however they did replace it with the correct desert quite quickly. we were very disappointed in the whole experience and based on that experience i am not sure how in the world they have managed to receive a michelin star. i cook better food and provide a better atmosphere at a local pub i work for! the manager who took our order was not too helpful and rather unhelpfully suggested that if i was still hungry after my main course i could order some extra potatoes! I was trying to assess whether the wellington split between 2 people would be enough for 2 fairly hungry people otherwise i may have had an alternative main course. They did discount some wine from the bill and removed the service charge which is just as well because otherwise there would of been completely no value in the meal what so ever. Service was lacking, atmosphere was lacking and most definitely the standard of the food was just not as good as we were expecting. to find a rather large bit of crab shell in our eggs drumkilbo when cooking aT this standard is actually unforgivable. we will most likely never go back.

    Whilst the food was tasty, service was appalling. It was my birthday and I am gluten and lactose intolerant. My husband contacted ThebGoring the night before and was told that everything was fine. First i was told if I wanted GF bread I would need to wait. Next I asked for a Pinot Grigio and they only had Rose. It was suggested I try Pinot He is, which I did. It was too dry so I asked if I could look at the wine list and choose another. I did this but had to wait half an hour before anyone noticed I was trying to get their attention. By the time I had my wine my husband had almost finished his drink. Next I went through the menu thoroughly and chose a starter of salted beetroot with ewes cheese and BlackBerry jus. It arrived minus the ewes cheese. When I eventually got hold of a waiter he said I couldn't have it as it was made from milk and I was lactose intolerant. I was not amused. Eventually I got the cheese. My next course was the Dover sole which was very cold. By this time I wanted to eat up and go. My husband had roast beef which should have come with mustard and horseradish sauce. They forgot the mustard. We found a wziter who said it would be there immsdiately but it arrived 20 mins later. Needless to say my husband had almost eaten his meal. Lastly the dessert. I looked at the menu, absolutely nothing for Gluten free. Then one of the waiters said i could have the lemon cake only to come back later saying it had lactose in it. Eventually I was offered sorbet. Immediately after in was given a very tiny slice of chocolate cake, apparently gluten free with a candle. It was very disappointing as last year I took my husband to the Savoy Grill and everything was fantastic. Once I sat down we were asked which one of us was gluten free and I was immediately offered some Gf bread and a totally Gf menu. Fantastic. My birthday this year was marred by their inattentiveness and although we were seated at 12.45 we were the last to leave the restaurant at 3pm. I do r

    A more traditional British restaurant with very attentive service and a warm ambiance. The food is well prepared but not as finely prepared as I expected from a Michelin restaurant. The meal is priced reasonably but drinks and wine are more expensive than other comparable restaurant. Overall fine though not outstanding.

    Fabulous in every way. Had dinner in the main restaurant with three friends as a birthday treat. From the initial welcome to the final goodbye everything was perfect. Had the set menus which on this occasion included a complimentary glass of champagne, always a good start! Service was impeccable, food wonderful and we were thoroughly spoilt. The birthday girl had an amazing time. The staff managed the correct amount of class with the right degree of friendliness. Only negative was that we could only get a late table 9.15pm which meant that we could not have a drink in the bar after our meal, as the bar closes at 12pm. Sadly this meant we had to visit another establishment for a night cap as after 12pm only residents allowed to be served. Would visit again for a treat.

    Une ambiance feutrée et de très bon goût nous a emballée dès notre arrivée. Une cuisine britannique créative et goûteuse, un service de bon style malgré quelques erreurs du possiblement a une mauvaise communication entre les cuisines et le personnel de service. Le tout fut corrigé prestement pour nous assurer une très bonne expérience dans l’ensemble. Une belle découverte si vous voulez faire l’expérience d’une cuisine britannique de haut niveau.

    I was disappointed by the snobbishness of the service, i.e., in view of the price tag attached to the beautifully presented but only slightly above average food. I had a good mushroom risotto, very common john dory, and to die for lemon pudding and ice-cream. Since the main dish is THE main, I rate my experience based on that. My guests had a greasy lobster omelette and very ordinary beef roast, for mains. Sorry, Goring dining room, but you need to improve on impartial treatment of customers and main dishes. In this order. Thank you.

    My mother was visiting and I had booked a few places to visit to ensure she had a good trip. We had an absolutely disastrous dinner at Wright Brothers the previous evening, embarrassingly awful so I was hoping The Goring would erase those memories and wow did it. The hotel and dining room are beautiful, the service was second to none and the food excellent. From the moment we arrived we were looked after by the staff who were friendly, informative and attentive but discreet. The tables are nicely spaced and formally laid out with sparkling glassware and crisp white tablecloths. The lunch is remarkable value for the quality of the food. Starters of truffle risotto and foie gras were both delicious, attractive and full of flavour. Rack of lamb was perfectly cooked and seasoned and paired with sweetbreads and nicely spiced aubergine. The cheese trolley was fantastic and had a lovely selection of British cheeses all perfectly kept. A lovely meal, that we will repeat.
