Something in particular, however, left a big impression on visitors to Soda Fountain, and the country as a whole. The ultimate dessert - and a wonderful way to celebrate the end of the horrors of WW2 - that was introduced to Fortnum's was the Knickerbocker Glory. An "appetizing dish in the heart of the shopping centre", its popularity soared and soon came to be synonymous with the restaurant.
The popularity of the pudding has not diminised. In fact, to this day this tower of tasty ice cream, fruit and meringue is still served at our The Parlour, arguably the spiritual successor to the Soda Fountain. But what is it that makes our Knickerbocker so tasty? It's the explosion of flavour that brings together vanilla ice cream, vegan strawberry ice cream, fresh pineapple and raspberries, homemade Italian meringue and - the most special ingredient - a lot of love.
But don't just take our word for it. Book a table at the Parlour today, and enjoy scoop after scoop of this delectable treat.
