Over the years the Recorder has covered a plethora of local stories from the front line to the fluffy - but we can honestly say we have never written about this before.

A pub in Gants Hill is not accepting money for a drink – but asking customers to pay for it in cake.

King George V, Cranbrook Road, is offering customers a gin and tonic if they bring in a sweet treat.

To celebrate the introduction of Mrs Cuthbert’s traditional dessert-inspired gin liqueurs, pubs that are part of the Greene King pub group will give away a “free” gin and tonic to anyone who brings in a slice of cake on Wednesday, November 14.

Cakes that are being accepted include Victoria sponge, cupcakes, slices and cake bars and in return punters can sip British Victoria Sponge gin.

The offer is only open on Wednesday, November 14. Picture: Greene King.The offer is only open on Wednesday, November 14. Picture: Greene King.

Other flavours in the range include blueberry muffin, rhubarb and custard crumble, and a bespoke flavour exclusively produced for Greene King pubs, a passionfruit Pavlova gin.

Aiden Lidbury, general manager at the King George V, said: “The trend for flavoured gins is huge at the moment, and what better way to enjoy iconic British flavours than with a free glass of dessert-inspired gin and tonic.

“Mrs Cuthbert’s dessert-infused gin liqueurs are inspired by 1940s home-baking, with fun and nostalgic flavours that make a refreshing alternative to traditional gin and tonic – we’re sure our guests will love them.

“We look forward to welcoming locals in for a mid-week treat they don’t have to pay for – it really is the icing on the cake!”

There is one drink permitted per person and guests will need to be quick to get hold of one, as the offer is only available while stocks last. Terms and conditions apply, participating pubs only, and promotion not available in Scotland.

Any guests wanting to try another flavour can bring in a muffin, a crumble or a pavlova instead, in exchange for the corresponding flavoured gin and tonic.
