Afternoon Tea

The Goring celebrates this much-loved English tradition with a creative, delicious Afternoon Tea service.

Enjoy delicate pastries, scones and sandwiches served with the finest blended and first-flush teas from around the world – topped off with a glass of Bollinger Champagne, if you wish.

The Goring has been perfecting the art of Afternoon Tea since it opened its doors over a century ago. As the holder of The British Tea Guild Council’s Top London Afternoon Tea Award and The Award of Excellence, we continue to delight guests with delicious pastries, fruity homemade jams and high quality tea blends. The menu changes to offer the freshest, locally-sourced fruits in line with the season. 

Afternoon Tea is served in the luxurious, five-star surroundings of the Bar & Lounge each day between 3.00pm - 4.00pm, and Saturdays in The Dining Room between 1.00pm - 4.00pm. Guests can choose to take their tea in The Terrace overlooking The Goring Gardens, in the cosy surroundings of The Lounge or outside on The Veranda in the summer months.

Afternoon Tea is an indulgence, so complement the experience with a glass of Bollinger Special Cuvée Champagne or Bollinger Rosé Champagne along with the sweetest hand-picked strawberries. We also offer a gluten-free tea, which can be requested in advance.

Please be advised that on Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th February, we will only be serving a special Valentine's Bollinger Rosé Afternoon Tea.

‘A quintessentially British experience, the historic residence's Bollinger Tea is a traditional afternoon event as the hot beverage gods intended it.’
