    If there's one thing I really bloody love - it's finding new brunch spots. There's something just SO appealing about brunch over dinner. Maybe it's the day drinking...maybe it's the whole pretending I'm a lady of leisure thing - I don't know - all I know is that I am HERE for it.

    And my latest Brunch find? Well, it's pretty bloody good indeed. It's not your average 'avocado on toast' jobby - no - this brunch is all about venison, game and whisky by the dramful! It's called Mac and Wild - and you're going to love it!

    It's tucked away just behind Oxford Street (Great Titchfield Street to be exact) and the interiors are just to die for. Think dark grey walls with rustic wooden tables and fur hanging from industrial lighting. My actual house goals.

    Now like any good brunch spot - they offer a bottomless option to really kick off proceedings. For just £18, you can enjoy free-flowing drinks for the duration of your brunch (and the waiters are super generous with the refills!). Alongside your classic Prosecco and Bucks Fizz, there's also bottomless gin, vodka and whisky cocktails for your more seasoned drinkers!
    In terms of food - definitely start by ordering a couple of 'wee plates' to share between you. I highly recommend the 'Haggis Pops' - small nuggets of haggis coated in crispy breadcrumbs and deep-fried. They come served alongside a delicious redcurrant and mustard dipping sauce which is wonderfully sticky, sweet and perfect to cut through the salty, punchy flavours of the meat.

    Make sure you order yourselves a Venison Scotch Egg too....

    A perfectly poached egg wrapped in meaty venison, black pudding and haggis which just oozes the good stuff as soon as you cut inside. Scotch Egg
    For main courses, there’s plenty on offer from full Scottish breakfasts to venison steaks. The restaurant was founded by Andy Waugh, who hails from just north of Inverness, so all of their meat is sourced and then butchered with care by his family’s game-butchering business, which has been in existence for over 30 years (meaning you're in good hands).

    I'll be honest though - I already knew what I was having before I even entered the restaurant. You might have heard about this dish before – it’s been billed as London’s Best Burger no less – the Veni-moo...
     A gigantic creation of both venison and beef patties, topped with caramelised onions, cheese and indulgent béarnaise sauce. I promise it's as good as it sounds. Burger
    Now every good burger needs equally as good sides - and you're spoilt for choice here. Comfort is the order of the day so get yourself a portion of the perfectly-seasoned chips...

    and a big comforting bowl of the Truffled Mushroom Mac and Cheese and you’re set for an absolute feast! Mac & Cheese

    Make sure you save room for pudding as you won't want to miss dessert! I particularly loved the Sticky Toffee Pudding which comes drenched in whisky caramel sauce and a scoop of Mackie's milk ice cream.

    And in a playful nod to the Scottish 'delicacy', there's the Deep Fried Mars Bar Sundae.

    It's a truley decadent creation of salted caramel ice cream and deep fried mars bar bits drenched in whisky toffee sauce and topped with bacon....Mars Bar Sundae
    No, YOU'RE licking the screen just thinking about it! If you want to book in for a taste of the action, the bottomless brunch is available on weekends at either the Fitzrovia or Liverpool Street branches - slàinte!
