Bottomless Brunch at The Botanist, Bath

The Botanist has a new brunch menu which you can choose to make bottomless! It’s a super cool concept where you have you choose one thing each from 6 different sections: eggs & tofu, hearty, bakery, fruit & grains, sweet and a mini juice.
 

1. Eggs & Tofu 🍳 

Fried Eggs with chilli and chives (v)

Simple but nice, the chillies added a nice kick. The eggs were nicely cooked but needed a bit of salt & pepper 

Baked Shakshuka with flatbread (v)

The shakshuka was a nice hearty mix of eggs, tomato sauce and peppers. 
 


2. Hearty 🥓 

Cumberland sausage wheel with maple streaky bacon

The sausage was delicious & flavoursome! The bacon was nice & crunchy, which went super well with the sausage. A favourite! 

Smoked trout and salmon pâté with capers

The salmon was nice, but it needed some kind of bread to be spread on, which we weren't given (it says flatbread on the menu). 
 


3. Bakery 🥐 

Warm croissant with strawberry jam (v)

The croissant was quite dry but big in size. 

Jalapeño cornbread (v)

A very nice cornbread with a hint of spice but not overwhelming at all. 
 


4. Fruit and Grains 🍓 

Passion Fruit and coconut chia yoghurt pot (ve)

Delicious crunchy passion fruit bits with soft coconut chia seeds. Very fresh & light! A favourite. 

Granola, banana and berry smoothie bowl (ve)

Very fruity! This had acai bowl vibes for sure and we really liked the granola ontop. 
 


5. Sweet 🍫 

Caramelised banana & lime Eton mess (v)

Light, fluffy & soft. Very yummy, the caramelised banana was very nice and went well with the lime zest! 

Dark Chocolate and peanut butter pot (ve)

The complete opposite of the former, this was thick, rich & heavy. Very nice! The dark chocolate and the peanut butter were a great combo. Another favourite! 

6. Mini Juice Boosts 🍊 

Orange (lemon, orange, turmeric & ginger) (ve) - Nice & refreshing! 

Green (matcha, apple, cucumber, mint & lime) (ve) - Also very nice! 

They were both quite small, but you can pay extra to get larger ones.
 


Overall, this was a nice concept as you get to have a kind of sharing plate vibe but for brunch, which is also good value. To make it bottomless, it’s £15 extra per person and you can choose from Aperol spritz, Prosecco or their house pint (whole table only). We went for an Aperol spritz which was lovely. The interiors are really lovely and it definitely makes it feel like more of a ‘fancy’ occasion. They had a good range of vegan & gluten-free options. 

💰 ££ [£15 per person + £15 for bottomless brunch]
