Kate Middleton, now the Princess of Wales, spent the night before her wedding to Prince William at the Goring Hotel. I wanted to see inside this heritage gem, so prior to my trip, I made a lunch reservation. e hotel, in the shadow of Buckingham Palace, is renowned for its bespoke wallpaper and traditional furnishings, and is the only hotel in the world with a Royal Warrant from Queen Elizabeth II. e Goring Dining Room has a Michelin star, but our party of three opted for a table on the veranda overlooking the garden. e view was great, and our meals were positively wonderful. My gravlax was the most flavorful I've ever tasted and our daughter enjoyed her lobster Caesar. e teen at the table gave high marks to her club sandwich and fries. e Goring, which dates from 1910, is a newcomer compared to Rules, which opened in 1798 and is the oldest restaurant in London. I made arrangements to meet a friend there for lunch, which I assumed would last one or two hours at the very most, but I was hard pressed to leave after more than four hours. His good company was certainly a factor, but I was also fascinated with the historic d├ęcor and bowled over by the food. detour destinations << ranchandcoast.com 74 JUNE 2023 RANCH & COAST MAGAZINE IL PAMPERO: PHOTO COURTESY OF THE HARI, BELGRAVIA
