For those who don’t know, this weekend is King’s Cross Journeys, a two day festival celebrating King’s Cross Victorian history and as part of it The Gilbert Scott Restaurant and Bar at the St Pancras Hotel which too has its foundations in the Victorian era, will be bringing a taste of Victoriana to the festival with the Gilbert Gin Garden and The Gilbert Parlour.
Supposedly for the children whilst the adults are at the Gin Garden, but we have a feeling there will be a long queue of sweet toothed adults waiting to get their hands on some of the treats from The Parlour, as they will be serving up Peanut butter, Kendal mint cake and Eton mess flavoured choc ices,as well peanut brittle and soda floats including refreshing, homemade Elderflower Fizz with milk ice cream and Espresso Fizz with salted caramel ice cream. If that wasn’t enough then there will also be the glorious sounding salted caramel and toasted marshmallow ice cream pots.
Once you have stocked up on sugar then head over to the Granary Square where the Gilbert Gin Garden will be serving up delicious cocktails including Gin-Stock winning Meadow Sweet Cocktail, The Gilbert Scott’s signature 1873 Cocktail and the classic Bottle Negroni.
So not sure what to do this weekend? Like gin? Like retro soda floats and Kendal mint cake? Interested in London’s history? Then this is one you can’t miss.
