Botanical Brunch at Mr Fogg's, London


Last weekend I took a little trip to Mr Fogg's House of Botanicals in London to try their new Botanical Brunch. My mum, my aunt and my cousins have an annual tradition of going out for brunch for Mother's Day each year, and Mr Fogg's kindly invited us down to try out the menu. Our brunch was gifted but all opinions are my own.

The restaurant is located up the famous spiral staircase and is decorated like something out of an old movie. I absolutely love the vibe of this place, it's definitely my favourite of all the Mr Fogg's establishments in terms of decor. You may have seen the downstairs area on numerous Instagram feeds (including my own) because it's just so beautiful!


The menu is quite small for this brunch, which is kind of nice because you don't have to spend too long umm-ing and ahh-ing over what to have. All of the options sounded delicious and as always, it was a tough call between sweet and savoury! I decided on savoury in the end as there was a dessert option and didn't want to overload myself with sweets! You can also upgrade your brunch to have bottomless bellinis for £36. The prices overall are extremely reasonable, especially for a central London brunch spot!


It wasn't long before the drinks arrived. Mr Fogg's are renowned for their cocktails and everyone very much enjoyed them. There are three bellini options and everyone agreed that peach and thyme was the best (FYI).



Then came the food. I went for the honey roasted ham, french fries, portobello mushroom, tomatoes and fried eggs, minus the ham of course as I'm veggie. I was glad to see that they were happy to remove the meat off mine too as some places can be funny about changing items on the menu. The food was absolutely delicious and well cooked! It definitely filled me up without being too heavy.


My mum ordered the mushroom steaks with avocado which looked seriously good, while my aunt went for the same as me and my cousin went for the fishcake florentine with poached egg and mango hollandaise.



For desserts there were only two options (I think it would be nice for them to have a few more in the future, even though the ones we had were lovely) - vanilla cheesecake and chocolate tart. I had the cheesecake and it was lovely - a good size slice too. `



 My only complaint about the meal was that the service was a little slow and inconsistent at times and we ended up waiting a rather long time for desserts, but other than that we had a really lovely time. The restaurant was very busy so it's definitely worth booking a table if you're planning on visiting!

I'd definitely recommend Mr Fogg's Botanical Brunch if you're looking for a good quality, reasonably priced brunch in London that also has a bottomless option!

Let me know what other brunch spots I should visit in London! x
