Food Review: Gas Street Social Bottomless Brunch

Brunch is an activity in itself. Neither a breakfast nor a lunch, brunch is a lazy weekend activity for two that allows for a decent lie in and social time with friends.

Gas Street Social has launched the Bottomless Brunch at it's shiny new venue in the Mailbox. Available on Saturdays and Sundays from 9am-1pm, there's food and drink as well as a fabulous jazz band playing in the background.

That's exactly what I was able to enjoy last weekend when I grabbed a friend and took her out to enjoy a girly brunch.

Taking a coveted booth seat, we sat down to examine the menu and were overwhelmed with options. From the £3 all you can eat bread and spread option to the steak, burgers and salad, this brunch encompasses everything from breakfast to lunch options for those who just can't decide.

So what does the Bottomless Brunch entail? Well, the bottomless part actually refers to the unlimited Mimosa's and Bellini's available for two hours at a cost of £15 pp. A total treat for a birthday, anniversary or celebration, I would advise that you partake in some hearty food too before crashing out!

After ordering a Bellini and a Mimosa so we could try both, myself and Jess ordered tea whilst we looked at the menu. I was tempted by the granola and fruit but in the end, we went for the Gas Street Works and Full Vegetarian.

The Gas Street Works came with Cumberland sausage, smoked streaky bacon, free range egg cooked how you like, roasted plum tomato, Gas Street Social beans, black pudding, mushroom, sauteed potato and toasted Hockley bread as well as a cup of Union coffee or tea.

My Full Vegetarian came with sweet potato cake, free range eggs, roast plum tomatoes, flat mushroom, sauteed potatoes, Gas Street Social beans, Hockley bread and a cup of Union coffee or tea.

Both of our breakfasts were delicious and we were really impressed with the provenance of the ingredients.

We also really enjoyed the live music and the atmosphere was fantastic!

Overall? An indulgent weekend treat that's a great excuse for getting social.
