From now until the end of July, The Happenstance in St Paul’s has opened a beautiful Silent Pool Gin garden to celebrate the arrival of summer. Award-winning RHS Show designer, David Neale, has created these woodland-inspired pop-ups boasting fragrant British blooms and foliage, complemented by a specially curated floral cocktail menu.

Taking inspiration from David’s prize-winning Silent Pool Garden created for last year’s Chelsea Flower Show, the garden features carefully selected plants and flowers known for their health and wellbeing benefits. Bunches of fragrant roses and delicate elderflower boast powerful antioxidants and promote easy-breathing, whilst beautiful Iris Sibirica helps to ease the mind and allow guests to unwind.

The flourishing woodland-esque terrace overlooks the cobbled, bustling Paternoster Square and is the ideal setting for a spot of lunch and people-watching or an early evening cocktail or two. 

Bringing to life the colours, fragrance and exuberance of the Chelsea Flower Show, a limited-edition cocktail menu has been created to complement David’s designs. These delicate serves pair natural, floral flavours with the perfect mix and muddle of fresh British ingredients.

Opt for a glass of Enchanted Rose, which infuses Silent Pool gin with Belsazar rosé vermouth, raspberry and rose tea syrup and lemon; or choose the Light But Not Low,  which combines Silent Pool with London Essence Co’s bitter orange and elderflower tonic. Groups of three or more can delight in a delicious ‘pot’ of Enchanted Tea, which features Silent Pool gin, Belsazar rosé vermouth, raspberry and rose tea syrup, London Essence Co’s bitter orange and elderflower tonic and a dash of lemon; or simply treat yourself to a classic Garden G&T.
