I'd known about the bottomless bellini brunch at Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings for aaaaages and had been desperate to go since I first heard about it. So when my colleague and friend Rachel (yes, another one), told me she'd been, I made her tell me all about it over lunch one day. She'd loved it, so we decided we simply must get the gang together and go.
And by the end of our lunch break, the booking was made, huzzah! I do love an impulse decision. Granted, our reservation was for about two months' time, but hey, we're busy people and B&H Buildings is so popular you really do have to book far in advance.
So it was with great excitement that I made my way up to North London for a long-awaited bellini-fuelled brunch.
We took our seats and got to perusing the rather extensive menu - there's definitely something for everyone.
Order placed, bellinis ahoy!
Probably in an attempt to make sure no one had drunk too much on an empty stomach, our food arrived incredibly quickly. For me, drop scones (aka pancakes) with caramelised banana and mixed nuts.
It was perfection. Literally faultless.
The other gals went to town too...
Absolute brunch goals.
Brunches, brownies and a
few ridiculous amount of bellinis down the line, we were served our final drinks (and informed thus, which was good), and asked to move over to the sofas to enjoy them so that our table could be cleared for the next group of hungry brunchers.
It was so lovely that we weren't rushed and could sit there chatting long after our flutes were dry and we'd moved on to the tap water.
I loved Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings and can't recommend it more. Would return.
Also, anyone else really want a bellini now?
