    Finding somewhere good to go for brunch in London is easy. There are SO many brilliant places, the list is endless - but finding somewhere good to go for Bottomless Bubbles close to where I live (out in the sticks) that's an entirely different situation.

    Don't get me wrong - I love heading into town - it's just sometimes you don't want to have to sit on a train for an hour after too much food and drink, you know? Well, my first-world problems have been answered...all thanks to the Botanist in Marlow.
    The Botanist is one of my favourite 'local' restaurants. I say local because there's actually 14 dotted around the country but they've all got the same homely, quaint, shabby chic vibe.

    The branch in Marlow has just launched a brand new Bottomless Brunch so we popped down last weekend to check it out - and it's a steal.

    For £25, you get a dish from their special brunch menu along with cocktails on tap for 90 minutes and live music. Like any good brunch, there's free-flowing prosecco - or you can go for one of their killer cocktails (I wholeheartedly recommend the pink grapefruit and peach sangria!). 
    If you're feeling hungry, go for the classic Full English. Not only is the crockery beautiful but it's topped with a HUGE feast including a 4oz cumberland sausage, smoked streaky bacon, baked beans, black pudding, roasted mushrooms and grilled tomato. All that plus toast, tomato jam and your eggs - cooked exactly how you like.  
    If you're more into Eggs Benedict style dishes then you're spoilt for choice. You can order the poached eggs on toast with a whole host of different toppings from honey roast ham and hollandaise or roast garlic mushroom and spinach through to the smashed avocado with homemade tomato jam.

    Or just keep it classic with smoked salmon with a generous helping of hollandaise and chives. 
    My absolute favourite dish though? The breakfast burger. Cumberland pork patty, smoked streaky bacon, Gruyère cheese, tomato jam and a fried egg sandwiched between two burger buns #DREAMY.
    What better way to spend a Saturday morning in the suburbs? If you want to be involved, the Botanist Bottomless Brunch is only available on the first Saturday of every month so you need to get booking ASAP to avoid disappointment.

    1. Oh my gosh that breakfast burger is making my belly rumble! Hope all your house renovations are coming along well. x

    2. I used to live in Maidenhead, and my housemate and I would go over to Marlow for brunch. The Botanist was opening just as I was leaving there, but I wish I could go! I don't miss Maidenhead at all, but all the places around, including Reading, I do quite miss.

    3. This looks amazing! I am always looking for more local restaurants outside of London as I too 'live in the sticks' in Hampshire with a similar commute! I've just checked and there is a Botanist near me, thanks for the great recommendation!
