Boozy Brunch in London
I was delighted to co-host a Bloggers Boozy Brunch at Broadleaf (near Tower 42) with Flavour Venue Search. FVS offer venue finding in London for all occasions including birthdays, weddings, hen parties and corporate events completely free of charge.
What’s it like?
Spanning over two floors, Broadleaf offers intimate booth settings as well as tables for larger parties. With rustic decoration and some taxidermy (which is the epitome of the ETM group behind Broadleaf) it was a lovely venue to have brunch in. For the sports fans, upstairs at Broadleaf are large screens as well as a shuffleboard.
We were also lucky to have two singers play two sets during our brunch. Playing a mixture of older and contemporary song it was the perfect brunch accompaniment.

Offering two courses for £20 or three courses for £25 with an optional boozy brunch for an additional £15 including prosecco, mimosa, bloody mary, wine and beer, Broadleaf is exceptional value for what you get. It is also great to get a choice of your unlimited booze so you can mix and match!
I opted for prosecco for the duration of the boozy brunch. The staff were very attentive making sure my glass was refilled regularly.
I also loved the Coco Loco Mocktail: Ginger and Lemongrass, pineapple, coconut, citrus and lemonade. It was beautifully presented and refreshing.
I actually opted for two dishes from the starters given I could not pick between them! Starting with the Mac and cheese croquettes, I was presented with 3 large croquettes. They were perfectly cooked with gooey mac and cheese inside and the garlicky sauce was perfect.
Following this I had the Buttermilk pancakes, bacon, maple syrup. They were not quite as fluffy as I would like but came with a really decent portion of bacon, which is always a winner. Some of the other starters on offer included Eggs Benedict, Royale and Florentine and Salmon and scrambled eggs. These are dishes that I would expect on the main meal list so even better value for money!
The selection of main meals included Superfood salad and Ceaser Salad, Longhorn Double Cheeseburger, Crab Linguine, Corn Fed Chicken, Lamb Stew and Salmon Fishcakes. Really hearty dishes meaning that two courses is more than enough to satisfy you.
Part of the reason I opted for two starters was because I had spied the Sticky Toffee Pudding with vanilla bean ice cream on the dessert menu. It did not disappoint either with a generous amount of sauce (so important!) and very moist.
The White Chocolate Cheesecake and the Pineapple Carpaccio were also fantastic desserts:
I was super impressed with the boozy brunch at Broadleaf in terms of atmosphere, service and price. It is definitely worth checking out.
Thanks to the wonderful Nadia Evans (co-owner of Flavour Venue Search) for collaborating with East London Girl to host such a great brunch with fantastic bloggers.
