Happy belated Easter! I hope you enjoyed the long weekend. Mine was spent eating, shopping and spending time with my faves! On Sunday Gordon and I were in Aberdeen so we booked The Tippling House for lunch. I had a voucher from my sister and their new brunch menu sounded good!
The Tippling House describes themselves as a subterranean late-night tavern, but they've just started opening up over lunch time at the weekends. Every Saturday and Sunday they're serving up boozy brunches and tasting flights, with Oliver Richards providing some live acoustic music on Sundays. He played everything from The Kooks to Lorde!
I told myself I wouldn't drink in the weeks leading up to my wedding dress shopping (which is Saturday btw!) but it'd be rude not to at The Tippling House. 10 Dollar Shake are doing the bar at our wedding, so technically it was official wedding research. Bloody Mary's aren't my cup of tea but if you're a fan you can build your own! I'd quite liked to see some mimosa or bellini type drinks included on the brunch menu. Anyway, after browsing the winter cocktail list I ended up with a "dance of the sugar plum fairy". (Obviously.) It was worth the extra calories. (Obviously.)
Gordon had a red meat sub which was made up of rib-eye steak, amazing crispy onions, cheese and pickles, served with home cooked nachos. I can never resist pulled pork so had the cuban spiced pulled pork burrito. It was packed with meat, rice, beans and sweetcorn and served with salad and chips. I felt like Amy Winehouse on Nevermind the Buzzcocks... I never want it to end!!
(Total waste of an analogy if you've never watched that episode. You should really watch it.)
If you fancy a chilled out brunch or even just a hair of the dog, get your ass to The Tippling House this weekend. Brunch is served 1-4pm and you can book online here. Cheers for the birthday pressie Laura!
