Bubbles and mac & cheese – yes please!
Who doesn’t like brunch am I right?
Well earlier this month I went with Craig and our friend Laura to see what 100 Wardour Street had to offer on its two courses with bottomless bubbles weekend brunch menu. Their brunch menu is available from 12-5pm and you book a two hour slot for your table.
I was pretty excited, as I have been to 100 Wardour Street on a number of occasions in the evenings for drinks, and it is a really nice venue, but I had never had food there before.
The main restaurant where brunch is served is downstairs, and it was all set up to receive all the brunch revellers for the next five hours which the offer is available for. We went down at 12 with the other parties who had arrived slightly early, and were seated in one of the round booths on the raised area at the back.
The waiter told us that they were fully booked for all sittings and were expecting a busy day, so we thought we should take advantage of our prompt arrival and start our bubbles off asap to maximise. For £1 extra you can also get a jug of orange, peach or berry juice to add to your bubbles to make bellinis or mimosas. I decided to do that and went with the fresh orange, which was very nice and definitely a bargain for only £1 extra.
We were ready to order fairly swiftly, and we were all going for the eggs royale for starter for our bottomless brunch. The starters are all the classic brunch type dishes, your avocado on toast etc. The eggs royale came on a big piece of sour dough with plenty of hollandaise, with the eggs well poached and runny. I did sacrifice some of my bread, as I knew I had another plate of carbs on the way and it was a lot of food to eat at 12 o clock! Bottomless brunch tactics are key!
Then you also get a main. Craig had steak and ordered a side of fries as it doesn’t come with them, Laura had the chicken and I, unsurprisingly, went with the truffle mac and cheese. The truffle mac and cheese was really great, although I didn’t quite manage to finish it all. It was sufficiently cheesy and the crumb topping added a nice crunchy texture contrast with the silkiness of the pasta, would definitely order again if I went back.
We had to ask for our glass to be refilled once or twice but largely the staff were fairly good at noticing an empty glass and rectifying it. The food service was also fairly speedy. We were brought our bill about 20 minutes before our table was due back, so that we could be paid up and ready to go when the next booking arrived as they have a very short turnaround time. However, they still gave us refills and you are able to take our drink to the bar area either downstairs or upstairs to finish off and order more if you feel like it.
What did I think of my experience?
It was a nice experience and my first of a two course bottomless brunch. It was rather a lot of food for me at that time but it was enjoyable, the atmosphere was really great and the service was good too.
Be warned though it doesn’t come cheap, at £55 a head. Which does not include service charge. Definitely glad to have been and experienced the food there though and it certainly didn’t disappoint.
