Tee up for great vibes, mouth-watering food & drinks and more than a touch of friendly competition with Puttshack’s brand new Brunch Club, pairing high-tech mini golf with an indulgent bottomless brunch that’s set to take Sunday fun to a whole new level.
The brunch is served with 75 minutes of bottomless bubbles, beer or sparkling mocktails and, unlike some other rival brunches, they are certainly not stingy with it. You get a glass as soon as you enter the dining area to sip as you scan the menu, and the assiduous front of house staff will top you up even if your glass is only half empty - serious bubbly brownie points, guys.
We had the new two-course brunch menu with a choice of both savoury and sweet options.
To start, I ordered the new version of Puttshack’s OG buttermilk fried Chicken & Waffle, served with free range egg, dry cured streaky bacon, pickles, cinnamon honey butter and chilli maple syrup. The chicken was beautifully cooked; a crispy coating with a moist and juicy interior, a great match with the crispy shards of bacon, soft egg and sweet/savoury waffle.
We also tried the vegan Indian Dosa, a generous portion of soothingly creamy scrambled tofu, enlivened with a kick of green chilli, spring onion, tomato, pomegranate, coriander & mint chutney and chargrilled lime, which you can add to taste.
The other savoury option is the Brunch Burger - a sausage patty in a brioche bun with gochujang ketchup, American cheese and a free range egg, This sounds like a great hangover cure; I'll just have to let you know.
First choice had to be the Passion Fruit Posset, combining passion fruit with lime, pineapple and a Chairman’s Reserve spiced rum granita, topped with toasted coconut and pomegranate seeds. This was refreshing and not overly sweet, with the topping providing a pop of texture and freshness against the creamy tropical posset.
We also got our American diner vibe on and ordered a stack of Banoffee Pancakes with caramelised banana, vegan vanilla ice cream, maple syrup and dark chocolate. As a non-vegan I would have liked the option of dairy ice-cream, but otherwise it was brunch heaven.
You could of course be swayed by their Warm Double Chocolate Brownie, served with salted caramel, chocolate & dulce de leche sauce and vanilla ice cream. (If you are, please tag us on Instagram as we'd love to see it!)
So, after over an hour of delicious food and unlimited bubbles, on to a round of mini golf - what could possibly go wrong?
Actually we felt it was definitely the right way round; you have a limited time per hole so you won't get stuck behind people faffing about (i.e. us, slightly squiffy) and you do throw yourself rather more enthusiastically into the mini golf post brunch. It's also so cool to have another element to your brunch once you have finished eating; you can take your unfinished drink with you and there is the option to order additional drinks at every hole.
The whole mini-golf element is thankfully effortless; once you have logged in, your scores are automatically totted up as you go along and the winner is revealed at the end. Each hole has its own challenges and personality, from pop quiz to Pac-man.
Brunch Club debuts at Puttshack’s Bank location in central London with dates throughout March and April, and is priced from £45 per person.
