De Vere Latimer Estate

Did someone say Bottomless Brunch? Table for two please!

A new concept for the 1838 restaurant and bar at the glorious De Vere Latimer Estate, the fizz-filled bottomless brunch takes places just once a month, so booking is essential.

Located in the quintessential English hamlet of Latimer, enter through the wrought iron gates and up the long drive where the impressive hotel will be ahead of you (notice the beehives on the left as you drive in). Entering the hotel, you can find the restaurant on the righthand side.

The restaurant is, in fact, located in a stunning orangery, filled with plants and natural light, with a gazebo in the middle (very random but oh so stylish) and a brightly coloured bar. With an open kitchen, watch the chefs work their magic as you sip on your bottomless ice-cold glass of prosecco or mimosa, taking your time to read through the selection of delights on the menu.

From muffins and smoked salmon, to good old sausage, egg and beans, or even a minute steak with a blue cheese crust, there’s something for everyone*. Follow this with a selection of indulgent desserts, and a final glass of prosecco, and you’ll be rolling out of the restaurant full to the brim. Being the designated driver, my brunch was washed down with lashings of tea; I’m known to enjoy my cups of tea!

After brunch why not retire to the comfy hotel bar where you can lounge, soak up the atmosphere chatting with friends and think about having afternoon tea looking out over the beautiful estate grounds.

Chatting to Executive Chef Noel Busby, hiya bucks were thrilled to hear the De Vere estate are currently in talks with local producers, artisan bakers, farmers and even a foraging company to provide locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. Hence the beehives beside the drive, it’s the estate’s plan to produce their own honey later this year. That has to be a good thing, right?

The next Bottomless Brunch dates are: 29th February, 4th April and 2nd May. 12.30pm-3.30pm
