Before Victoria became synonymous with carbon dioxide emissions and chain sushi restaurant, there was once a time, long ago, that it was associated with a certain level of affluence. The Queen does live around here, after all. The Goring hotel is a fitting throwback to this era, and so is its lovely dining room, which serves modern takes on old-world British dishes like lobster omelette and Hereford beef short rib. You can expect all the trappings of a traditional fine dining joint - set menus, silver service, petits fours - and lunch is a good way to make the most of it. It’s a good shout for treating your parents or friends from out of town, especially when you factor in the Goring’s bar and afternoon tea service.
