It’s Friday and that only means one thing, that brunch is fast approaching. Now that the weather is getting nicer, tables are coming outside and everyone is looking for that perfect spot to have a lovely and enjoyable meal with a few tipples on the side. So when I found out my regular haunt Bulldogs was now offering brunch, I was straight round there to give it a go.

Sadly it was raining last weekend so we could not sit out on the lovely terrace, or what I deem to be the VIP spot, so we sat inside instead. However when the sun is shining I’m often found drinking a vat of Pimms.

We of course had to get some cocktails, and I decided to mix things up a bit and get a mimosa (8,000) instead of my usual Pimms, though I did get one later. This mimosa was extra lovely as it was made with freshly squeezed orange juice, which really made a big difference.

My new partner in crime Georgie got my old favourite, the Breakfast Martini (8,500) which comes with the most adorable garnish, a  piece of toast and jam! This drink is sweet, jammy, and all kinds of delicious.

TFB decided to be nice and manly and try the Kingsman (12,000). Jamesons, pale ale and ginger over crushed ice, he really loved this one, especially since it came in a tankard which was oh so Game of Thrones.

On to food, we of course couldn’t resist The Big Ben (15,000). Pristinely presented, it was quite a mammoth load, french toast, pancake, hash brown, sausage patty, bacon, tomato, asparagus and a quail egg. This breakfast stack was monumental and not for the fainthearted. It was not officially an English Breakfast with the french toast and pancake but I think it was better for it, as you get the best of both worlds. I’d like to see some baked beans on the side though as for me it’s just not breakfast without them. Owner Tom noted our suggestion and said he will include them next time.

Georgie opted for the Smoked Salmon and Scrambled Egg (12,000). Served on toast, it’s certainly a lighter option than the Big Ben. You know I can’t bear salmon so didn’t give it a try, but Georgie seemed to like it.

Lastly we had to try the fish and chips. The fish was coated in a lovely yummy batter and the home made tartar sauce was divine. Sadly it was missing the mushy peas though.They used to do an awesome posh fish finger sandwich which came with mushy peas, so I really wish they would put that back on the menu.  Sadly the chips are not hand cooked, but since it’s not a specialty  I’ll let them off.

One thing I love about Bulldogs is the warm and friendly welcome I always receive when I go there. It feels like being back home in the local again, and they are always willing to make you a lovely cup of tea if you require one.
