The last hotel to be opened during the reign of Edward VII, The Goring – just minutes from Buckingham Palace – is the perfect setting for a meal fit for a King. Lavishly regal from decorative ceiling and Swarovski crystal chandeliers (lowered in the evening to create a more intimate atmosphere) to gleamingly spotless Arthur Price cutlery, the Dining Room brings Edwardian style in to the twenty first century. Expectations are more than adequately filled by a menu which could have been inspired by a Royal hunting trip out in Britain’s most beautiful fields. Grouse, duck, Scottish Salmon and even that old favourite, steak and kidney pie, feature while often forgotten delicacies-past, jellied eel or roast marrow bone, make a surprisingly welcome comeback too.
