Having been in London for two years now, and as a bona fide lover of all prosecco, I’m amazed that I’ve never found the time to make my way to a bottomless brunch. So last week, after a mad few weeks at work, we decided it was high time to book in.
We hit The Jam Tree in Clapham. We were lucky enough to sit outside. If you’re looking for a buzzy (OK, super LOUD) venue for your bottomless brunch then this is it. The brunch menu is pretty simple, and service can be slow (we were outside, with one other table, whereas inside was pretty manic). You’ll pay for your dish here and then a £17.50 supplement for unlimited prosecco. Oh, and you’ll have a two hour sitting, so its unlimited, but only for two hours (this is pretty typical of Bottomless Brunches).
Then, we decided we would go on a hunt for a Pedalo. We decided to hop in a cab down to Richmond Park. We walked all through the park, and across to bring us out on the Richmond side. Having picked up some picnic bits along the way, we walked across Richmond and down to the river where we found some boats for hire.
We hopped on and rowed up the river – all of about 100 yards, but, with the weather out and beautiful, and, prosecco and sausage rolls on hand… We couldn’t be happier…
Soon enough it was time to row back to shore (all of the 100 yards… 😉 …). Someone decided to strike up on their violin, so we had a pretty decent soundtrack! We walked a bit further down to the river, kicked off our shoes and swung our legs over to dangle just by the river.
We watched the sun set and planes lazily make their way back home, whilst dogs ran by and ducks gathered for our left overs.
A perfect day of friends, prosecco, and sunsets…
