I have to apologise for my rather prolonged absence, it’s been a busy couple of weeks and haven’t quite had chance to catch my breath and write about the events!
What better post to bring things back than with a bottomless brunch and the venue was the wonderful Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings in Clerkenwell.
It opened about a year ago and as always has been queued up on my list for one to try. It also happened to be post Birthday celebrations after the night before so a bit of fresh air and carbs was just what the doctor ordered (after Charlotte dragged me out of bed).
The building itself is beautiful, lovely windows opened out to small tables outside but the main event is inside around the bar or round the back in their very large conservatory. The decor is quirky but at the same time elegant, old fashioned with a twist. My hangover was brushed further away at the presence of a beautiful dog who moseyed on in with his owner to have a lie down by the bar, my type of place!
We settled in some rather comfy sofas and cast our eyes over the menu after of course deciding on the bottomless cocktail which in our case was the peach Bellini for £16 each.
The alternative was Bloody Mary’s for £15 bottomless and I can confirm they were very generous indeed in the quantities, constantly coming round with freshly made jugs to fill you up.
For the food there’s a good choice and I went for the crispy potato hash topped with poached eggs, smoked salmon and hollandaise – gorgeous. The others all went for equally eggy based dishes but on an english muffin base.
It was a lovely day with the girls, perfect place to gossip over large quantities of cocktails. Also if the sun is shining make the most of a stroll through Exmouth Market just down the road with their beautiful outdoor tables.
Now to go down to make more of the bellinis when perhaps not so delicate from the night before.
