We have previously eaten from the regular menu at Bread Street and it didn't go well, with the food being returned to the kitchen, but one Sunday we decided to give Bread Street another try. On Sundays, a brunch/roast menu is offered throughout the day, together with a live band providing some easy listening music during the early afternoon. Enjoying several of the brunch options on our first visit, we liked it enough to return. On our next visit we opted for a Sunday roast and we were impressed with that too. Termed the Lazy Loaf Sunday menu, Bread Street Kitchen is it seems one of the better Sunday offerings out there, a day of the week where we have, alas, consistently struggled to get a good meal from the industry.
The brunch menu section is relatively brief at four items with Eggs Benedict, and a ham hock hash with fried duck egg it has a couple of perfect brunch dishes on, and with ricotta hot cakes, banana and honeycomb butter, it's perfect if you want something to fill that Sunday gap.
More substantial are the roasts where the roast rib of beef is piled high and comes with two Yorkshire puddings. All in all, a pretty decent roast comparing favourably on quality, quantity and value with other recent Sunday endeavours. The only thing I wanted a little more of was the gravy where they could have been a little more generous. The veal chop was equally impressive and cooked well, which is never a given for a single person veal chop.
As well as the beef and veal, there's mutton, Dingley Dell pork and of course a burger available. Roasts are priced at £16, up to £25 for the veal chop. A chocolate tart with salted caramel ice cream and honeycomb made for a good finish and we left happy with our meal and likely to return.
