This summer, The Goring’s pastry chefs have been truly inspired by Her Majesty The Queen on the 60th anniversary of her Coronation.
The chefs have created a simply delightful tribute to the memorable occasion: Coronation Afternoon Tea at The Goring, which will be served throughout the months of June and July, so make sure you visit before it ends.
The Afternoon Tea is unlike anything ever served before. With each serving you will receive an Earl Grey Tea Macaroon topped by a chocolate crown modelled on the State Crown, a pink hat filled with cassis mousse reminding us of the creations worn by Her Majesty, a Victoria Sponge, finished with rosewater icing and a sugared rose petal commemorating Queen Victoria, the only other Monarch to enjoy a Diamond Jubilee and the Strawberry Tart is a nod to the Garden Parties held every year in the grounds of Buckingham Palace.
There is also a Chocolate Slice crowned with a white and black spotted chocolate flash which reminds us of the Ermine used to trim the Coronation robes, a golden orb on top of a chocolate cake recalls the pageantry of the Coronation service itself. The Goring’s own take on an Eton Mess, served in a glass, takes our Queen home to Windsor, her favourite residence. And of course no Coronation Tea could possibly be complete without Coronation Chicken as one of the sandwich fillings.
The Goring has been serving its English Afternoon Tea since 1910 and after 113 years, it truly has mastered the perfect menu. In April The Goring was named winner of The 2013 Top London Afternoon Tea Award by the UK Tea Guild and you are sure to enjoy the Coronation Tea as it is a deeply stylish and delicious tribute to 60 glorious years.
