Highly Commended for Best Brunch

This huge brunch, covering multiple venues, allows you to take your pick from bright and airy, intimate and less ostentatious or even al fresco – whatever takes your fancy. Three restaurants join forces to dish up almost every food imaginable. Among others, there's a sizeable sushi station, a cheese section, oyster bar, live Asian cooking stations, seafood galore, plenty of steaks and Brit grub, plus a huge dessert section with a dedicated chocolate table. In addition to the expected house beverages, there are various mixed drinks stations dotted around the venue, and the lemon fountain is truly a sight to behold. You also won’t be short on entertainment, because there’s a three-piece band belting out popular hits, an outdoor petting zoo for the kids (during the cooler months), a magician and even a group of gawp-inducing acrobats. Altogether, Bubbalicious is a good choice for families and doesn’t get as rowdy as some rival brunches.
