The Best of British: This Week’s Patriotic Celebrations

By Charlotte Knight |
18th April 2016

As you’re well aware by now, this year marks Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday – a seriously impressive milestone even before you consider her action-packed schedule. With St George’s Day on Saturday 23rd April and Queen Elizabeth’s birthday 2 days before (the 21st) we have rounded up the most patriotic offerings in London so you can eat, drink and sleep like royalty.

‘The Full English’ in a Cocktail

Don’t get us wrong, there’s nothing we love more than a classic fry up, even on days when we aren’t nursing a hangover but we draw the line at being able to drink it. Victory Mansion has decided to celebrate St George’s Day by creating a cocktail that epitomises England – ‘The Full English,’ Black Cow Vodka, cherry tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, HP, horseradish, Marmite, crispy bacon and a pickled quail’s egg for garnish, served in a tin of beans. It might take a true patriot to be able to down one of these.

Where: 18 Stoke Newington High Street, Stoke Newington, N16 7PL
