Smooth service, rich English food, and a memorable cheese cart! Do arrive hungry as the 3 course meal is de rigor.

Afternoon tea in Goring does not require recommendations. Because this is one of the best in the world of such events. The sandwiches melted in the mouth, the freshest scones and cakes were tender, Bollinger Rose enchanting and backed up by the magical service of...More

Afternoon tea is not worth 108 pounds ($145) for two people! I thought we would only be charged half that since we shared one tower. It’s only tea, sandwiches, scones and a few desserts. I would not go back and I would not recommend this...More

The restaurant doesn't open until 6pm, and the theatre (Hamilton) said to be at the door no later than 7pm, so we were worried we wouldn't have enough time. We needn't have worried. Unrushed but 100% efficient service meant we had a perfect meal. Two...More

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

architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

There's no need to book; you just walk in whether you are resident or not. If you are a bigger party you would need to book. For safety I suggest you call the Dining Room
