The Gun's Winter Wonderland in Spitalfields - with a Lifesized Gingerbread Chalet

This winter The Gun pub in Brushfield Street, next to Spitalfields Market, has built a giant gingerbread house, with edible bricks, within the bar, to serve as a dining room, plus lots of other festive touches, including a winter forest, and an edible advent calendar.  They have also re-worked the menu to include warming classics like deep fried brie, and brought in some special cocktails, though a collaboration with vermouth experts Belsazar.  Yum!

"This November, Spitalfields pub The Gun will be transformed into a winter wonderland including a lifesize Gingerbread Chalet installation and new seasonal food and drink menus designed especially with the festive period in mind.
From 12th November, the bar at The Gun will be transformed into a winter forest, decked out in an abundant display of snow-dusted trees and rich foliage, paving the way to the pub’s very own Gingerbread Chalet dining room. Brought to life by edible bricks and an edible advent calendar from 1st December, and adorned with twinkling fairy lights, glowing lanterns and warming throws, the Gingerbread Chalet at The Gun takes inspiration from the Black Forest and the Gingerbread Houses of the 16th Century, and will be the perfect cosy bolt hole for the winter months.
The unveiling of the Chalet will coincide with the launch of a deliciously festive cocktail menu, created in collaboration with vermouth experts Belsazar. The new selection of tipples will include the smoky ‘Two Smoking Barrels’ of Absolut Vodka, Lot 40 rye whisky, Belsazar Red vermouth, honey-infused orange peel and cinnamon, smoked with pine, and the fiery ‘Spiced Route Revolver’ which combines Havana Especial, rum, spiced syrup, star anise and cinnamon. The Gun will also offer warming mulled wine throughout the season for a taste of Christmas come early.
As for the food, The Gun will welcome a new menu of comforting classics by executive chef Ashley Door, including the restorative Braised beef short rib with creamy mashed potato, braised red cabbage, chestnut crumb and jus or the melting Deep-fried brie with cranberry dip and watercress garnish. For dessert, in-keeping with the woodland theme, guests can enjoy the indulgent Black Forest gateau with brandy cream and cherry sorbet."
