I recently wrote about 5 Michelin restaurants I wanted to eat at, well on Good Friday I made a trip down to London to enjoy breakfast at The Wolseley.
It’s no secret that I enjoy a good brunch and as I was looking for something different to do, over the Easter weekend, I thought having breakfast at The Wolseley ticked the box. Whenever I’m in the Mayfair area, I’ve always gone past The Wolseley trying to peep in to see what it was like.
It was an early start to travel down by train to London, and I was exceptionally lucky with the weather. Once the early morning mist had cleared, as I travelled through the countryside, when I arrived at Green Park the sun was shining and the sky as blue as it could be. As I was early I watched the daffodils dance in the sun and wondered through the Park I made my way towards Buckingham Palace.
After revelling in the Spring sunshine and being in the Capital, I made my way to my breakfast reservation. On entering The Wolseley I was greeted at the reception desk and asked if I wanted a newspaper to read.
There were only a few tables that weren’t taken, and so there was a real buzz around the restaurant with a mix of friends, couples and families all enjoying the breakfast delights. The interiors matched my perception of how glamorous they would be, with lots of marble, gold and light.
I sipped on a skinny latte whilst I perused the menu. It took me a while to decide as everything sounded delicious.
After taking a peek at the dishes, as they came past for other diners, the French toast pancakes looked amazing, and there were many people having a mixed basket of pastries. I finally decided on The Wolseley fishcakes. And I can tell you I wasn’t disappointed.
The fishcakes came on a bed of spinach, with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce. They were divine. There was more fish than potato cake which is always a good thing. I was glad to see a good portion of spinach and there was enough to go with each mouthful. I can’t get enough of poached eggs and these were poached to perfection. I over indulged in ordering two fishcakes, but I wasn’t sure how big the portions were going to be. I didn’t eat for the rest of the day!
I thoroughly enjoyed my breakfast at The Wolseley, it lived up to everything I thought it would be. The service was exceptional as was the food. I also thought it was good value for money with my breakfast totalling just over £22. I’d definitely recommend it. I’ll certainly be going back for more dining experiences.
As I stepped out into the hustle and bustle of Mayfair, the sun was still shining and the temperature had risen, just perfect for my next stop – Kensington Roof Gardens.
