This place is pretty high class, but open to all, I was here for dinner with 12 friends, the service was top notch, and the dining room very atmospheric, old wood paneling etc. There was a set menu of several choices, and some very fine cognac searved in cut crystal glasses. I can recommend the Beef consume soup, with a... More

If you want a breakfast, lunch or dinner I would recommend visiting Dimitri and his staff at cafe royal in Park Royal. I visit almost every day when I'm working and it's a real treat.

The sandwiches and cakes were good, but the scones were amazing!! On of the best scones I ever had, and also the handmade marmelade of... More

I came here for brunch on my 21st birthday and was made to feel truly special, all the food was fantastic and they even made a gluten free substitute for absolutely everything included in the regular package. They also have a fabulous selection of teas which the waitress was more than happy to go through with us. We were not... More

Beautiful building and dining room. The afternoon tea was very filling - too much to eat in fact we had to ask for some to be packed up to take home, they packed it up lovely too. I have a sweet tooth but too much sweet food would be a better balance to have a little less sweet and maybe... More

Having already been to the Ritz and the Goring didn't know if it would compare but it does. The food is delicious but different, served in a room steeped in history. Less formal which can be nice. Very enthusiastic and friendly waiter shared stories from the past, lovely couple of hours.

I went for a 50th birthday when a Spanish chef was in residence. The bar - despite being a nice opulent room - where we had to book and pay a deposit in advance was almost deserted so no atmosphere at all. Cocktails were £20 + service = £22.50. They were all very unusual as they were the chef's creation... More
