Tatler Awards - Consistently Excellent for the Dining Room May 2010


The Dining Room at The Goring voted ‘Consistently Excellent’ at the Tatler Laurent-Perrier & Taste of London Restaurant Awards 2010

11 May 2010:
Last night, champagne flowed and glasses were raised as Jeremy Wayne, Tatler’s Restaurant Editor, awarded The Dining Room at The Goring ‘Consistently Excellent’ at the ninth annual Tatler Laurent-Perrier & Taste of London Restaurant Awards 2010. The ceremony took place at The Langham hotel and the Dining Room at the Goring was selected from a list of high calibre finalists - Bibendum in Fulham, Chez Bruce in Wandsworth Common, Club Gascon in West Smithfield and Oxo Tower in South Bank.

The award couldn’t be more timely as The Goring celebrates its Centenary this year and remains the only five-star hotel in London that is still owned and run by the family that built it. A highlight of the London dining scene since 1910, The Dining Room at The Goring is renowned for its superbly cooked British food, a legacy that Executive Chef Derek Quelch continues to uphold by using carefully-sourced British produce to create classic British dishes with a modern twist.

To commemorate 100 years of Goring food, Derek, together with Jeremy Goring - the fourth generation Goring to run the hotel - have delved into the restaurant’s archives and created a Glorious Goring Grub menu featuring forgotten favourites from eras past.   These historic dishes will feature alongside The Dining Room menu throughout 2010 and include Bloater Pie from The Roaring Twenties, and Eggs Drumkilbo from the Thatcher Years - which also happened to be the Queen Mother’s favourite dish and The Goring is the only non-royal residence with permission to serve it.

Jeremy Goring says:
“We have been serving guests in The Goring Dining Room for the last 100 years so to be recognised for producing consistently excellent food is brilliant. This award is testament to Chef Derek Quelch and his team’s continuing commitment to producing outstanding British food – a tradition that we hope will continue for another 100 years.”

The Goring Dining Room is open seven days a week.

Lunch is available Sunday to Friday 12:00-2:30 pm and dinner, including a pre-theatre menu, if offered daily from 6pm to 10:30 pm.

Lunch in The Dining Room is £35.00 for three courses, and dinner is £47.50 for three courses.

About Laurent-Perrier
Established in 1812, Champagne Laurent-Perrier is one of the most distinguished family-owned Champagne Houses.  Based in the heart of Champagne, in Tours-sur-Marne, Laurent-Perrier has a pedigree for innovation, handcrafting a diverse and pioneering range of fine champagnes that are produced to traditional, time-honoured methods. The House was acquired by the Nonancourt family in the late 1930s and for over 50 years Bernard de Nonancourt has dedicated his life to innovating and perfecting Laurent-Perrier Champagne. Today, Laurent-Perrier is one of the great success stories in Champagne, and is now the fourth largest champagne brand worldwide. Laurent-Perrier is renowned for achieving many firsts - in the late fifties the House introduced the first multi-vintage prestige cuvée, which represents the epitome of Laurent-Perrier’s ‘art of assemblage’ - Grand Siècle by Laurent-Perrier. Twenty years on, Laurent-Perrier was the first Champagne House to reintroduce the concept of brut nature champagne, with its Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut. Laurent-Perrier was also the driver of the rosé revolution, with its unique Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Brut, first launched in 1968 - the benchmark rosé to which all others aspire.
