Fortnum & Mason-The Parlour
Needing an emergency treat for a rightly disgruntled 11 year old and being in the Green Park area of Piccadilly there was only one place to go-The Parlour at Fortnums. Although it needs a bit of a freshening up it’s still a really good bet for outrageously sized sundaes and floats that will bring joy to any child or adult sized child’s heart.
The kid went for the Fortnums Fresh Lemonade Float (£5.75) which was a blend of Fresh Lemonjuice, sparkling water and sugar syrup topped with lemon sorbet. It was really refreshing and not too sweet. Lemon sorbet is one of my guilty pleasures especially with a glass of Armagnac poured over it (see our Chabrot review)…
Feeling ‘abstemious’ I went for the Ice cream flight (£8). I chose Salted Caramel, Bellini Classico Sorbet and Pistachio Siciliano flavours as my choices which came in rather tasty cones. The ice cream and sorbet were all delicious and the servings were generous.
At The Parlour you will also find Authentic Viennese cakes and strudels and open sandwiches alongside excellent coffees, hot chocolate and wines. You could easily spend a whole day or two here-maybe I will!
