Watched over by friendly animal heads (thankfully made out of paper), the endless bubbles began. I find prosecco a little sweet but the smooth cava offered with Oxbo’s weekend brunch was an absolute delight. You can also pimp your fizz at a station containing syrups and fresh fruit although this bottomless fan prefers to keep things simple.
What followed was four courses of food heaven for true weekend indulgence. The Chef’s Table seemed to offer an infinite selection of starters where you simply help yourself. Again and again… and again! Thinly sliced beef, marinated squid and seared tuna some of the highlights here.
Next, dishes from the Open Kitchen where chef Ali whipped up the perfect fluffy omelette, with other options including pancakes, waffles and eggs served every-which-way.
The Main Event seemed a little incongruous, offering Sunday lunch vibes, but the tender lamb and flaky hake soon had me hooked. A special mention must go to the veggie option here, the spiced roulade being the brunch surprise star of the show.
Finally, to the unlimited desserts. I tried my very, very best to leave room but only managed to squeeze in a strawberry tart and crème brulée from another seemingly infinite selection of sweet treats. Needless to say, I left Oxbo feeling very happy and full. Great quality food, tip top service and well worth the price: £38 for brunch (£55 bottomless). Check out the full menu here.
