    Lured in by an instagrammable building and bottomless brunch. Service was pretty good, our server was friendly and pretty on the ball not letting our drinks get dry. Food was really pretty poor. I had the vegetarian breakfast, the hash brown had been baked possibly? Rather than fried. The eggs were a little greasy and the other items soggy and without flavour. I wish bread would be toasted as the food is heading out, rather than toasted and left. It ends up rock solid and fairly inedible. The restaurant was full of "ladies what brunch" and had a good atmosphere. Amenities could have been up kept a little more (no paper in the bathrooms for example), a little bit 2am at a club rather than restaurant vibe because of it.

    The Staff we're really accommodating and friendly. The venue and decor was lovely. Food was great. I had the Pan fried haddock which had superb flavourings, although the portion size could have been bigger to feel full - when comparing the dish to the Braised beef, crispy potato hash. Overall this restaurant is fab and I'll definitely be returning for brunch :)

    Absolutely fantastic. Booked in for boozy bottomless Easter brunch with friends. Staff were very attentive and kept the drinks coming throughout our meal - even squeezed in one last round for us after we'd paid the bill!! Food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Will be coming back again and again. This is my favourite brunch spot!

    The restaurant was gorgeous. The waiting staff was polite and attentive. I nearly ran across London to make it to my reservation on time and it was well worth the 1,000+ steps. Great food for a great deal (three course lunch for 18 pounds).

    Venue is beautiful and a great place to meet up for drinks. It was my first time dining there and the food was nice. It wasn't amazing and on reflection, not value for money. Definitely give it a go for the experience. I would go back for drinks but maybe not dinner.

    My friend is coeliac and she was informed that the only thing she could eat on the whole menu was the veggie breakfast. Food was fine, however we were then unceremoniously presented with our bill and told our table was needed when our 1.5 hours was up even though there were lots of other spare tables. Definitely will not be back.

    Nice atmosphere, good music (and not so loud as to drown out conversation), excellent food and not overpriced. The bar area is also very nice. One downside was regarding the two-hour maximum seating time (which we knew about when booking). After an hour and 40 minutes, our waiter asked us to vacate our table as he claimed the next booking for it had arrived. Not only was this short of our two hour period, there were multiple empty tables around us, so was completely unnecessary as well as incorrect. It took the shine off an otherwise pleasant evening.

    I love this place and do keep coming back, however, I do think a few tricks were missed in my most recent visit. We ordered the bottomless bellini's and the restaurant has a general rule of only having one glass per person on a table at any given time - which is absolutely fine and understandable. However, there was one waiter that kept bringing extra glasses of bellini's over, even though we hadn't asked for them. At one point another waiter came over to re-explain the policy, and honestly I felt like I was being told off for having too many glasses, even though it wasn't our mistake. The waiter then demanded to take the extra glass off the table, even though we had already taken a sip out of the glass. It happened a second time, a waiter brought over two more un-ordered bellini's. We didn't ask for them. If it goes against restaurant policy, I understand, but please don't disrupt my lunch to tell me you've made a mistake and need the drinks back (only to pour them down the sink, because we had already taken a sip out of the extra glass) Aside from that - beautiful restaurant, amazing food!

    We went for brunch, the food was delicious and the service was really good. They topped our bottomless drinks and borught water to the table without us even asking for it. The food came really fast and was delicious. The scones are more mini pancakes than scones, but are also delicious.

    The food was unremarkable. I ordered the breakfast and it appeared within a few minutes which had a whiff of "here's one I prepared earlier"! The fact that the bacon was way over cooked seemed to support that belief. We had the bottomless Bellini etc but had to leave after an hour and a half which we felt was extremely stingy. You're only just getting into your stride at an hour and a half! Other equivalent places have a two hour cut off. Is this greed on their part? I couldn't possibly comment. I don't think I'll be coming back here and will not be recommending to friends, colleagues or acquaintances.

    Had seen Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings on Instagram - is a very instagramable location!! - and thought it would be nice to take my Mum there for a belated Birthday lunch. The food was lovely (as was the wine, great finish to dry January!!) and the service was friendly and very good overall. Error on bill was quickly amended. Would definitely visit again, and recommend here to others.

    Booked a table over two months ago for my mum's birthday- We didn't get given a proper table but were instead propped at an overcrowded bar- not what I had had in mind! Breakfast was distinctly average- the bread not toasted properly, the meal was not very hot, the hollandaise sauce pre-made. I had to return a coffee that I was given because it hadn't come through properly. Staff were not attentive and everyone was rushing around in a frenzy- it was not a good dining experience and I will certainly not return.

    A Monday-night birthday dinner and although the conservatory was empty, B&H buildings still provided plenty of atmosphere. Maybe a little more appropriate for a sunny Sunday brunch but the log fire helped warm up the evening. Starters arrived a little too rapidly for my liking - either they were clearly waiting for us or they have some seriously speedy chefs. However, the food was excellent and the lukewarm apple crumble (to be fair, a new menu item) was immediately replaced with a second, much hotter, version. Will undoubtedly return for a weekend brunch.

    I thought the overall service of the meal was great lovely atmosphere and great food however my one negative would be that the last time I went for a bottomless brunch there the staff came round with jugs filling up your drinks and this time it was a matter of ordering a drink and waiting for it to come and sometimes there wasn't anyone to ask. Apart from this it was great service great food and value for money :)

    Lovely atmosphere, beautiful place, however it's hit and miss. The food was not enjoyable - one of the worst burgers I had in a while. I understand it's brunch but a waiter forgot quite a few things on our table and we had to ask for our coffees about 3 times. The only good thing is bottomless drinks that we didn't need to chase up.

    We were lucky enough to be seated in the conservatory, which is definitely the best bit for brunching ambience with the plants and cute tables/chairs. Food was lovely and very reasonably priced for the place. Cocktails looked amazing although didn't try. Lovely staff, very polite and friendly and great service.

    Really lovely place, but the service was pretty bad which ruined the overall experience - always trying to get their attention and when you finally did they were never happy about it. The food was really nice, but could have been better as my poached egg was so not that runny which was a disappointment

    Had booked a table for dinner with 3 other friends, 1 arrived early and got a spot at the main bar. We all arrived and decided to have another round of cocktails and asked if we can abandon the table booking and order food at the bar. The bartender answered " you can order whatever you want!" which is the best possible answer. The appear to enjoy their job, are good at their job and customizing cocktails and most of all, very friendly. I love this place, as the deocr is comfortable and casual but has a good sense of style. I have been here for brunch and for drinks and dinner. Will definitely return
