In honour of International Women’s Day this March, Great Northern Hotel is celebrating with Women’s Month throughout the hotel, highlighting women’s achievements and calling for a more gender-balanced world. In partnership with Womankind Worldwide, the global women’s rights organisation, Great Northern Hotel is celebrating women in their destination restaurant Plum + Spilt Milk, sultry martini lounge Anthracite and with a breath-taking installation at the hotel entrance. Plum + Spilt Milk serves seasonal produce throughout the modern, British menu, winning it several coveted international awards. For Women’s Month, the restaurant will be donating £1 to Womankind Worldwide for each signature Plum + Spilt Milk dessert sold. Meanwhile, the recently launched Anthracite martini lounge is serving a bespoke cocktail named after Womankind, which will also see £1 from each cocktail sold given to the charity. The Womankind cocktail is an enticing mix of Strawberry infused Hayman’s gin, Cocchi Americano Rosa, rhubarb, lemon juice and prosecco.
Great Northern Hotel is delighted to be working with innovative floral design studio Early Hours London, to create a spectacular floral arch over the entrance of the hotel. Situated in the heart of King’s Cross St Pancras, the display will bring spring tones to the area’s ever-thriving food, arts and music scene following its installation on International Women’s Day, Friday 8th March.
To end Women’s Month on a high, Plum + Spilt Milk will be serving a Mother’s Day Sunday Roast Menu. Priced at £40 per person, the menu commences with light, spring flavours including London burrata, chicory and pistachio salad, pomegranate dressing. Main courses feature a traditional Roast sirloin of native breed Yorkshire beef, Yorkshire pudding and red wine gravy and a luxurious Butter poached breast of Springfield Farm chicken, truffled brioche crumb and Bourguignon sauce, all served with duck fat roast potatoes and seasonal vegetables. To finish, indulgent desserts include Treacle tart, Yorkshire rhubarb sorbet and crème fraiche, ensuring all mothers enjoy a rewarding meal. The menu will be available from 11.30am-5pm on Sunday 31st March. There will also be an artist there to discreetly take in the day’s events and sketch guests and mothers enjoying their meal, available for them to take home as a special memento from the day.
Womankind Worldwide aims to transform the lives of women and girls facing discrimination, poverty and violence, just because they are female. The charity aims to end all forms of violence against women and girls, which is a consistent global problem occurring across all groups and classes. Womankind also supports women’s rights organisations and movements to call for structural changes to economies, to ensure women’s economic rights and control over resources are realised for all. Finally, the charity seeks to bring women equal influence in decision making and an ability to exercise political power. Great Northern Hotel is delighted to be working with such a worthwhile cause in celebration of women this March.
