HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE GORING!
This year, The Goring in London celebrates its centenary. For Jeremy Goring, the fourth Goring to run it, those celebrations will be all about family, staff and guests. It is now the only five-star hotel in London that is still owned and run by the family that built it. As The Goring approaches its centenary, it is already in the limelight.
Over the past five years, Jeremy Goring has been investing in the fabric of the hotel, first overseeing the transformation of the Dining Room by David Linley and the refurbishment of rooms and suites by designers Tim Gosling and Nina Campbell. A new afternoon tea veranda has been added, overlooking the hotel’s very private gardens.
Last year, Gosling came back to give the Bar, Lounge and Terrace a theatrical and silk-lined new look. Finally, last year saw the redesign of many of the largest rooms in the hotel, overlooking the garden, by Russell Sage, using historic silks specially rewoven for The Goring by the Royal Warrant holders, Gainsborough. The hotel will operate a year-long calendar of centenary celebrations.
“It is a place of graces, comforts, old-fashioned good manners and a total lack of snoot…”
“If you can tear your eyes away from the décor at The Goring, you’ll find that the resolutely British menu contains masses of native produce…”
