It’s no surprise that there’s a new brunch menu popping up every week, now that we’ve all become a little obsessed with bottomless brunch. The Devonshire Club recently launched a new weekend brunch menu, which of course got tongues wagging, so we headed on down last weekend to try it out.
The Devonshire Club is a private members club, situated in a small square tucked away from the hustle of the city. just a short 5 minutes walk from Liverpool street station, so getting there was pretty easy. Its pretty dam fancy inside, but not in a pretentious way. Bold coloured sofas, stylish interiors and floor to ceiling windows.
The brunch menu consists of modern-British classics. crafted the Devonshire Club way. The prices are pretty reasonable too, £25 for two courses and £30 for three courses and if like me you fancy some free-flowing Prosecco, its only an extra £15 or if you fancy Champagne, then it’s only an extra £30.
We opted for the three course brunch offer with champagne. We decided to have breakfast al fresco, and sat outside in their luxuriously garden. We were given champagne while we perused the menu, which instantly put smiles on our faces. For the starter I went for the crushed avocado and scrambled eggs on sourdough toast, the scrambled eggs were cooked perfectly, not runny and not overly cooked. My guest went for the Eggs Royale – poached eggs and smoked salmon on toasted English muffins. Now this looked to good not to try. So I tucked in and I must say for a person who isn’t a fan of Eggs Royale, this was a winning dish, flavoured beautifully, juicy and scrumptious. For the main I had the seared salmon, which sat nicely on top of asparagus and crushed caesar potatoes. The salmon I must say was another winner, cooked and seasoned wonderfully. it was a well proportioned dished, which I was pleased with, as I knew that I needed room for dessert!
My guest had the beef short rib with truffle macaroni cheese which he devoured quite quickly. A sign of a delicious meal I would think.
After our mains we carried on sipping our champagne and took some time to let our stomaches breath, before we ordered dessert. We ordered the baked flourless lemon and almond cake with vanilla cream to share. It was the perfect finished to a very delicious and filling brunch.
I would say, arrive with an empty stomach, you will thank me! The brunch menu has a great selection of dishes, you won’t want to miss out on because you are feeling a little full. Our waiter was warm and friendly and it was easy to see that diners at The Devonshire Club are well looked after. nothing is too much. I will certainly be back, it was an absolute treat.
