A great place for an early Saturday brunch. The prices are reasonable and the menu is quite interesting. BBQ Brisket Benedict was my choice -- quite tasty!

This is opposite The Peabody so a great location. We popped in for a Saturday brunch at 11.30am & managed to get two seats at the bar (no tables available as it was very busy). This suited us but if you have a larger group...More
