The Goring: Where Christmas is Celebrated with Aplomb

Just when London is winding down for Christmas, The Goring, London’s oldest and favourite privately owned 5 Star luxury hotel, is gearing up! Apart from its reputation for comfort and its particularly relaxed English atmosphere, The Goring has a well-earned reputation for giving its guests a good time. And when better to do it than the festive season?

So instead of slogging out of town or burying yourself under a welter of ‘jolly time’ chores, why not drop everything and come to The Goring for three fantastic nights over Christmas or 2006’s last great whoopee on New Year’s Eve?

Either way, we will fill your time with idyllic comfort in our newly refurbished bedrooms, entertainment and a formidable array of superb food and drink.

Our Christmas House Party starts with a Champagne Cocktail Party thrown by Chief Executive Jeremy Goring himself, great-grandson of our founder. It continues with a succulent and shrewdly-judged dinner (our Dining Room, refurbished by Linley last year, and winner of the Tio Pepe Award for the Best British Restaurant ). Christmas Eve concludes with Midnight Mass, and a postscript of mince-pies and hot chocolate. On Christmas Day itself, yummy breakfast and scrumptious Christmas Dinner for which Chef has promised us wondrous creations of traditional fare…Boxing Day brings more pleasures and the party ends on the 27th with the usual gorgeous full English Goring breakfast…

Our New Year’s Eve House Party is not wildly different from other New Year’s Eve parties you may have had – it is simply better! It starts with a Champagne reception, it progresses to a dinner that would bring an anchorite down from his pillar, it graduates into dancing on the Terrace with the groovy Manhattan Band and ends, naturally, with Auld Lang Syne. Next day, the Goring Brunch with its light yet satisfying British theme dishes (including Smoked Haddock Kedgeree with Curry Sauce) will entice even yesternight’s most committed reveller. And so…back to the world again and Happy New Year to one and all!

Do come to one or the other. Or both. We are getting ready, already.
