King’s Cross Physic Garden

Our terrace is the largest outdoor dining space in north London, perfect to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner ‘al fresco.’ This summer, in partnership with Fever Tree premium mixers, we have added inspiration from the heritage of Physic Gardens, where medicinal herbs and plants were grown and expertly blended by Apothecaries to create drinks,  bitters and potions with curative benefits, which have been reimagined in post-Industrial Kings Cross

We celebrate these ‘Physic’ herbs and plants including Lavender, Sage, Jasmine, Peppermint, Chamomile, Spearmint Pea Shoots and Apothecary Rose which have been matched to botanicals in our selected gins, tonics and garnishes to create an innovative G&T menu that inspired by the interesting heritage of a Physic Garden blending herbal ‘tinctures’ and curative potions for various ailments.
