Brunch. Everyone, myself included, is so into it, it might as well become one of our essential weekend meals. Most restaurants that cater for the weekend brunch crowd in London have similar menus and it’s rare for a brunch spot to really stand out for me. By this I mean so mouth water-ingly delicious that I’d be excited to go back. For a vegetarian it’s the usual eggs and avo on toast, maybe a handful of boiled spinach or a sprinkle of chilli flakes and lime to fancy things up so how unique can brunch menus really get!? This is how I felt until I met Holborn Dining Room.
Stylish Manhattan vibes in central London, Holborn Dining Room is an all day brasserie in The Rosewood Hotel. The grand dining space with its polished marble floors, dreamy red decor and cool lighting is so chic!
Food & Drink:
- Woodland mushrooms and spinach on toast with garlic butter
- Chai spiced french toast with banana and pistachio
- Matcha latte
I started with the trendy drink of the moment – the matcha latte. It was the perfect hug in a mug that I needed on a cold snowy day.
The woodland mushrooms and spinach on toast was delicious, a great garlic kick and a generous amount of spinach and mushrooms. My favourite dish was the chai spiced french toast. The sprinkle of pistachios and cardamom ice cream complimented each other very well and my sweet tooth was very impressed!
The service here is fantastic and a top feature for me was that I was able to easily make a reservation a few days before via OpenTable. I can’t stand brunch serving restaurants that don’t take bookings. Queueing in the cold for two hours on a Sunday for a bit of avocado on toast? No thank you.
I had a lovely experience at Holborn Dining Room and would highly recommend the stylish brasserie. It was refreshing to see such a varied brunch menu and the excellent service won me over. It also has a large retro bar, including an impressive gin selection, so it’s the perfect spot for drinks and a catch up!
