With This Pint Of Bitter I Thee Wed

A pub with a marriage celebrant? Genius! A press release from Fuller, Smith & Turner, the London brewer and premium pub  company, tells me that The Parcel Yard at King's Cross railway station is now open for the business of wedlock "Set in a Grade I listed building in the heart of London King’s Cross railway station, this beautiful pub spans two floors and showcases original features throughout," according to the press release. Several rooms are now licensed for marriage ceremonies: The Waiting Room (capacity 80), The Board Room (capacity 12), The Games Room (capacity 20), The Station Master’s Room (capacity 40) and The First Class Lounge (capacity 50).
“This is fantastic news for The Parcel Yard, the first of its kind, allowing the pub to delve into another market," said Jonathon Swaine, Managing Director of Fuller’s Inns. "It is a unique and stunning venue, in one of the most accessible transport hubs in the world, and already enjoys a considerable reputation in the beer and food world. I cannot wait to congratulate the first couple to marry in the pub. I am certain their special day will be made all the more unique by having their ceremony in what is believed to be the first station pub with a marriage licence. ”
Beer Airways is touching down in the Old Dart in late October and has pencilled in an inspection. Maybe we can renew our vows there? Being married is thirsty work.
