Sundays are different
A few years ago, we extended breakfast service to 12.30pm as it was clear that many of our customers simply weren't ready for lunch at the traditional time of noon. People wanted eggs, bacon, toast, something relaxed, to ease them into the day, and nowhere is that more so than in Glastonbury.. And so brunch was born, and now we are serving brunch right through the day every Sunday until 5pm.
Chef Dan is pleased with this concept which provides much scope for creativity with the menu. We have never done a Sunday Roast, feeling it too traditional and restrictive, whereas with brunch it seems that anything goes and thinking outside the box is positively encouraged.
If there is a traditional idea of brunch is seems to involve various deconstructions or permutations of the English breakfast - eggs, meats, pastries and breads. Pancakes and bagels feature strongly in the American brunch, but we have found inspiration from further afield too in looking to create vegan and gluten-free dishes that deliver that Sunday feeling.
Eggs are a staple of the Turkish diet. Our 'Turkish Eggs' is inspired by their popular dish of 'cilbir' -eggs poached in yoghurt with fiery chilli tomato sauce.
From closer to home we have French toast, served with maple cream and poached peaches, and Panzanella - an Italian bread and tomato salad. Ideas and inspiration abound. Feel free to share your ideas for brunch dishes with us!
Brunch is served between 12.30-5pm every Sunday.
