Iconic and fabulous is how I would describe The Goring and it’s hard to believe when you exit the tube station at Victoria in just a five minute stroll you stumble upon it… Not that I have anything against Victoria but you really do feel like you are a million miles away.
The Goring was the location of last week’s networking event and not to be outdone by England’s wonderful result in the World Cup that same night, it was a great night.
Our event started with champagne on arrival in The Drawing Room where we met a new member (welcome Victoria) and had a fab catch-up. Splitting into two small groups we then had a site visit of all the fab meeting and event spaces and, the bedrooms.
In regards meeting and event spaces, The Goring can accommodate 4 to 100 in any of their private rooms. The Garden Room is the largest of their private event spaces and features its own conservatory, leading out onto The Goring’s gardens. The Drawing Room has the most stunning woven wallpaper designed by Fromental and can host up to 12 for an event. The Goring has a further two event spaces The Silver Room and The Boardroom both equally as stunning. You can read more on the meeting and event spaces here.
In regards bedrooms, there are 69 with 5 different categories, each one individually designed and radiating the best in English design. The most luxurious being The Most Splendid Garden Rooms, overlooking The Goring’s private garden and with Gainsborough silk-lined walls, crisp Italian linen and lovingly crafted bespoke furniture, the Most Splendid Garden Rooms offer a touch of glamour.
After our site visit it was back to our private dining room for some pretty stunning canapes, more catching up and then our own private dinner. The Goring has a Michelin Star and it’s Dining Room is one of the most admired London restaurants for fine dining. The food was AMAZING and our group loved it.
Thank you so much to Sarah of Pineapple and Chiara from The Goring for hosting out group and showing us all of the wonderful meeting and event spaces The Goring has to offer. It is truly stunning and we know a lot of our members can’t wait to use the private dining rooms for some pretty special corporate dinners. Please reach out to Sarah for any further information.
