Bottomless Brunch at the Pitcher and Piano
Long brunches on the weekend with friends has to be one of life’s greatest pleasures. It was such a treat to enjoy a tasty Bottomless Brunch at the Pitcher and Piano in Richmond, whilst basking in the last blast of the summer sun on their stylish terrace. What makes this destination so special is it is located just by Richmond Bridge on the riverside, its large terrace looks directly out over the Thames, providing the perfect spot to while away the day, admire the stunning view of the river, and watch comings and goings of river life.
Post lockdown, Pitcher and Piano has reopened and they have brought back their much-loved Bottomless Brunch, accompanied by a choice of free-flowing prosecco, bellinis or mimosas. I went along to try it out.
The offer treats you to two hours of free-flowing fizz alongside your choice of a tasty brunch dish for £30pp. The menu includes many of the classic brunch dishes, including Eggs Benedict and their signature P & P ‘fully loaded’ Breakfast plate, as well as plenty of vegan options. They also have some great alternatives such as a Baked Moroccan Breakfast featuring crispy maple-glazed streaky bacon, a free-range egg, harissa-roasted chickpeas, and spinach in a spicy tomato sauce, with crème fraîche and toasted sourdough, plus brunch burgers and everyone’s favourite healthy option – Avocado Sourdough with sliced avocado, beetroot hummus, crumbled feta, poached free-range eggs, and chilli flakes, plus a vegan version with mushrooms.
We started off with some prosecco and a large jug of fresh orange juice as we took in the view and pondered over the menu. I might add that our glasses were regularly topped up with fizz.
My friend opted for the veggie P & P breakfast – the perfect morning after food, a plate full piled high with tasty grilled halloumi, smashed avocado, perfectly poached eggs, flat mushrooms, hash browns, a confit of tomato, baked beans, and toasted sourdough.
I admit to being rather unadventurous when it comes to brunch as I always opt for my all-time favourite, Eggs Benedict. I was served a delicious plate of poached free-range eggs perched on crispy maple-glazed bacon on top of a toasted muffin, which was dripping with a creamy and hollandaise sauce and a sprinkling of chives.
Perhaps we did overindulge just a little bit, but fancying something sweet we also ordered some Buttermilk Pancakes which came stacked high and were topped with juicy blueberry compote, a generous dollop vanilla creme fraiche, and maple syrup. These are not part of the brunch deal but for an extra £5 they are worth it.
Pitcher and Piano has 17 restaurants and bars, located in the heart of 17 towns and cities across the UK. Its rustic interior and warm and friendly atmosphere make it an ideal place to enjoy a lazy Brunch or Sunday lunch as well as celebrations and drinks with friends.
I can recommend the Richmond branch as it’s in such a lovely location, and if you fancy as we did you can talk a walk along the riverside to make even more of your weekend.
