Yet, whilst the restaurant's offerings of drop scones, french toast and poached eggs 'done three ways' sounds enticing on paper, the kitchen don't seem to have mastered their menu: dishes are ramped up to cloying levels of sweetness. If you've got a seriously sweet tooth, you might enjoy it, but the B&H brunch certainly won't be everyone's cup of tea.
While we've not much to say in favour of the food, when it comes to cocktails, B&H does stand out from the crowd. Amidst a morning lineup of fresh fruit juices and invigorating spirits (think gin, grapefruit and rosemary or fizz stirred through orange marmalade and pomegranate) two morning classics, the Bloody Mary and the Bellini are offered up bottomless throughout their brunch service.
So whether you'd prefer to cosy up by the open fire, perch at the marble-top cocktail bar or relax amidst trailing plants in the greenhouse, be sure to do so with a never-ending drink in your hand. Our only suggestion: skip the brunch.
