You might think that Albatross and Arnold is anusual name for a bar/restaurant, and there is no denying it is, but our first visit to this Spinningfields favourite demonstrated that it isn't just the name that is different.

The newly launched brunch menu at the weekends, is at first glance, full of the usual suspects. 2 hours of booze, etc,etc.

However, this couldn't be further from the truth.

We initially sat in the bar area with chilled sauvignon blanc and Rose, supported by the great music selection from the DJ and both commented on what a lovely Sunday morning vibe it was.

Then to table menus firmly in hand;

We plumbed for two of the omlettes from the list of 11 choices, which when served looked like rolled crepes sausage roll shaped.

The one Wild mushroom and one Smoked Salmon were both equally delicious and scoffed down enthusiastically.

The Bottomless Brunch allows 2 courses (1 from Savoury choices or sweet ones) and then a dessert dish to finish.Sound complicated? It is not.

Our Blueberry pancakes with Maple and the Brioche French Toast were both scrummy and all the above served by the lovely Ben and Manager Ian both in attendance throughout.

There is no question that this venue is tucked away (at the Left Bank just before the bridge to New Bailey) as my guest had no idea where it was, but once you know and alight the few stairs to The Range Golf Centre on the left and A&A to the right, it is so well worth the effort.
