Queen of Hoxton's Skye Halla Rooftop

Cosy up this winter at Queen of Hoxton's Skye Halla Rooftop.

I stopped by Queen of Hoxton's Winter Wigwam last week for hot buttered rum and pork belly hot pot to get me into the winter mood.

I've been dying to visit Queen of Hoxton for ages as it seems my ideal place. The quirky venue is located in East London and is a pub, club and restaurant all in one. 

I feel like winter has sudden fallen upon us. Just over a week ago it was still pretty warm and now it is absolutely freezing! After Bonfire Night I'm starting to prepare myself for Christmas and really getting into the whole 'winter vibe'. So hot drinks (preferably with alcohol) and comforting winter dishes are just what I need.

The Viking themed winter rooftop is cosy with an open fire (there's marshmallows on offer!), Nordic inspired dishes and a variety of hot and cold cocktails. You can even drink cocktails out of horns and the hot buttered rum is to die for!
