My love of The Gleneagles Hotel is no secret! You all may remember that time I stayed there a few years ago and uploaded videos of me running around the room whooping, openly and unashamedly gloating, gushing and weeping over the splendour of it all for weeks!
If you missed it – feel free to have a read here!
As a massive fan of brunch – I couldn’t resist the invitation try out Gleneagles’ brunch offering which takes place on the first Sunday of the month.
It was a pretty gloomy day with autumn setting in…but the hotel and gardens looked just as beautiful as ever. Gorgeous foliage and the gardens were bright with brawny heather.
Inside looked even more delightful…
The Birnam Brasserie was just after this beautiful stand and it didn’t serve as this stunning brunch area when I stayed here.
I was LIVING for their mosaic tiling and absolutely STUNNING interors for the Birnham. It was so, so beautiful. From the lights to the tiles, the food arrangements to the seating areas – it is visually delicious!
You’re looking at: smoked salmon and Marie Rose sauce, mackerels Pate on blinis, a couple of cheeses, watermelon & feta salad with seeds, grilled vegetables, heirloom tomato salad and some hounous. And quince jelly. And bread. And prosciutto.
The variety is incredible…but there’s so much more. You choose a dish as well!
I have to say: this is the only thing I’ve ever eaten at Gleneagles that I didn’t rate. It was very watery and the sauce had split. It was still nice enough to eat though!
Sitting with my watery marineres and seeing this truffled macaroni cheese next to me was sheer PAIN. Especially when I tasted some and realised that it’s the best mac ‘n’ cheese I’ve tasted! Seriously: you must try it!
The guy on the pancake hot plate is totally non-judgmental. I travelled home with my jeans undone as a result.
The brunch is only available on the first Sunday of the month and the price is £37, and you can add a drinks package for an extra £25. For the sheer amount you’re able to eat, the stunning surroundings and the incredible quality of the food, it’ll be money and an afternoon well spent.
