The Goring is proud to be a member of PoB Hotels, a collection of carefully curated rooms, the finest restaurants and spas, and the most authentic regional experiences across the British Isles. PoB Hotels only invite the very best independent hotels to join their collection – but there’s much more to it than that. Think of PoB Hotels as the key and each hotel as a door to new experiences. Each completely unique. Each hand-picked. Each the Pride of Britain.

Established in 1982 by a group of 12 passionate hoteliers, PoB Hotels today has grown to over 50 city-based, countryside and coastal locations. The essence of PoB Hotels is built on its British heritage, honouring provenance and sincere, authentic service. They love the independent nature and unique culture at each property. What ties the hotels together is not being the same but celebrating individuality with a common vision- offering guests the best experiences.

They’re all about pairing each guest with an experience that’s extraordinary and unique, so all members are inspected annually to ensure they live up to the PoB standard. Plus, admission of new members is subject to successfully passing an anonymous overnight inspection and a ballot of the membership.

In 2022, PoB Hotels partnered with EarthCheck, the leading global sustainability certification programme. This step formalises an ongoing commitment to responsible travel and an effort to promote sustainable practices across its collection.


The Goring is proud to support and provide hospitality services for the following partners:


Dallaglio Foundation

The Dallaglio Foundation exists to nurture and develop the essential skills of disadvantaged young people, using rugby as a means to offer engagement, integration and achievement. Jeremy Goring explains, "We at The Goring are really excited to be supporting the Dallaglio Foundation. Rugby is the ultimate team sport and really does provide life lessons and direction for young people."


Blue Marine Foundation

The Blue Marine Foundation (BLUE) exists to place at least 10% of the world’s oceans under protection by 2020 and then 30% by 2030. BLUE does this by bringing about marine regeneration on a massive scale, by creating a worldwide network of marine protected areas, creating awareness of the crisis in the oceans and to outlaw unsustainable fishing practices.  Join BLUE to support the charity's work
