Bottomless Brunch at Banyan, Leeds

At the beginning of December Lee and I took my mum and stepdad out to Banyan in Leeds for my stepdad's birthday. My mum and stepdad had both been interested when I'd been for bottomless brunch at All Bar One, so I decided we'd take them for one. All Bar One weren't running theirs in December, so I came upon Banyan instead. I booked a table and we picked my mum and stepdad up on Sunday lunchtime and set off.

It's in the old Post Office building; my mum says she can clearly remember when it was the post office. It's gorgeous inside, really nicely decorated. We had a nice table for four in the corner, and our waitress was fantastic - she was really nice and refilled our drinks really quickly each time.

The menu was fairly small, but quite varied. My mum and I both went for eggs royale with smoked salmon, and my stepdad went for steak sandwich and chips. My mum and I had prosecco and my stepdad had Aperol Spritzes which he really likes and which I think is quite unusual on a menu like this, but he was happy about it. Lee doesn't drink, so he could order off the main menu, so he went for a buttermilk chicken burger and fries. We weren't made to feel a nuisance when Lee didn't eat the brunch, which is really good.

The time limit is 90 minutes which was plenty of time, we had a decent amount of prosecco and the food was delicious. I would go back to Banyan another time to try something else.

After this, we walked back towards the Light where we'd parked and went into The Liquorist for a drink. I've never been in but I really liked its interior. We got a cocktail each - I think my stepdad had an Old Fashioned, my mum had a raspberry bellini, and I had a pornstar martini which I love. Lee had fresh orange juice which was extremely fresh and really nice.

It was a really lovely afternoon out, we said we'll really have to do it again soon!

It's a fantastic, huge building
