Glamourous afternoon tea: Bond & Brook review
Atmosphere: 9 Food: 9 Service: 10 Occasion: A great place to catch up with your close friends during a weekend of shopping or after work. It’s also ideal for a first date if you know you’ve something to talk about, if you don’t it can get awkward because it is a quiet place.
After hours of shopping and buying …erm…. nothing on Oxford Street during the weekend , I was desperately in need for some delicious food and a place to relax. I decided to meet two of my close friends and pay Bond and Brook a little visit for some lunch and afternoon tea [it actually ended up being a three hour visit].
The restaurant and bar is located in the heart of Mayfair on the second floor of the Fenwick store on New Bond Street [a five minute walk from Bond Street Station].
We tried various dishes, I think we over did it a bit [eyes bigger than our stomachs]. The only dish that I was not a huge fan of was the Vine Tomato Consomme – it was just too plain for me [not my cuppa of tea]. My favourite was the mouth watering Goat Cheese Souffle – it’s bursting with flavour.
I actually don’t have anything bad to say about any of the other dishes – they were all cooked to perfection. Every time you take a bite, the food it feels luxurious in your mouth. There are a variety of choices, whether you’re a meet or fish lover or just a vegetarian.
It is a really relaxed place where you can catch up with old and new friends [it has become one of our favourite catch up spots]. It’s a small light, airy, stylish restaurant with tables elegantly set. We thought the service was great – everyone was so polite and friendly and didn’t over do it to try and impress us.
