Central London Brunch

Nutshell | Covent Garden

A brand new brunch to investigate – and it includes saffron sheermal French toast with sour cherries; crispy lamb pâté on grilled flatbread; and eggs with butter beans, tomato and apricot. In a nutshell: delicious.

Hide | Mayfair 

Ironically, there is absolutely no hiding Hide’s excellence, particularly where brunch is concerned. Sure, at these prices, it’s an investment, but banana bread baked to order, followed by oysters and a Michelin-starred full English, sat in what essentially feels like the middle of intricately carved oak tree, means it’s definitely one worth making… READ MORE
