On Saturday the lovely people at The Piano Works invited me and a plus one to try out their bottomless brunch.
Never one to turn down complimentary food or alcohol, I decided to take my best pal (who you’ll all be well acquainted with if you follow me on Instagram) for her birthday.
We were a bit unsure about what to expect… but oh my god was it good!
Walking in dazed and confused we were shown to our table and introduced to our amazing waiter Issa.
He briskly got us a bottle of prosecco and we set about looking at the menu and working out how we could request as many embarrassing songs as possible!
Before I go on about what a fantastic time we had… let me start with the food. My god it was so good! I really wasn’t expecting it to be, because I thought the focus would be more on the music and the experience, rather than what people were actually eating. I STAND CORRECTED!
I went for the classic… Severn wye smoked salmon, burford brown eggs scrambled, rocket on sourdough toast and Char went for ‘love me or hate me eggs benedict’, which for those of us who have no idea what that would be it’s Burford brown eggs poached, bacon, marmite hollandaise sauce on an english muffin.
GOOD GOD IT WAS GOOD.
So… the lighting was terrible for a photo novice like me, so CJ had to improvise with our phone torches.
(shout out to Paul the photographer for catching this perfectly!!)
And here was our lovely little set up… not too shabby at all, I’m sure you’ll agree!
After demolishing our breakfasts, we continued on with the cheesy requests and sinking far too much prosecco!
Yes I did request 50 Cent – Candy Shop (massive props to the band for actually playing this) and The Ying Yang Twins Whisper Song #sorrynotsorry.
A few people came up to us and asked why we’d come in a two and how we were having so much fun (apart from the fact we’re massive bloody legends).
I have to say, this is not something you need to save for a special occasion and you absolutely do not have to be in a big group. We had the best best time just the two of us, so please don’t think you have to wait for 20 of you to finally coordinate your terribly busy diaries. Go in a two man team and sink three bottles of prosecco (or as many bloody Mary’s as you can handle – the other bottomless brunch option). You know you want to!
Shoutout to Paul again for that beauty!
As you’ve already gathered, we had an absolute whale of a time! We far outstayed our 2 hour welcome and hid in the back until the band re-started at 5pm.. muahaha!
We thought we were the only weirdos doing it… but we found two other groups who’d had the exact same idea and joined forces!! Needless to say the afternoon escalated from there!
Remember Issa I mentioned at the start? WELL HERE HE BLOODY IS! (Thanks for this beauty too Paul)
Some serious shapes were also thrown on the dance floor…
And when we finally left 6 hours later… we were horrified to find out it was still BROAD DAYLIGHT!!
However, the friendly door staff were on hand to occupy the ladies while I hailed the uber!
I think it’s safe to say they got on famously!
What a day! I would recommend this to ANYBODY. We had so much fun, the singers were amazing, the atmosphere was amazing and we just had an absolute hoot.
I’ve already frantically texted as many friends as possible so I can arrange another visit soon!
So here’s what you’ve all been waiting for… The final result… And I’m sure you won’t be surprised!
Overall Total: 5/5
