One of the Worlds Best Gathering Places now surfaces THE GOVERNOR’s BRUNCH on Sundays amidst Jazz to soothe your Sunday Blues

Great British food means unfussy dishes made with quality local ingredients, matched with simple sauces to accentuate flavour, rather than disguise it.

Historically, British cuisine has had something of a shocking reputation worldwide – for soggy vegetables, slap-dash sauces and over-cooked murky meat. Yet MLH our is now recognized as among the best in the world and their influence seems to be spreading to other hotels aswell. An exciting feature of British cuisine is its ability to absorb the cultural influence of those that settle in Britain. Now-national dishes such as chicken tikka masala, lasagne and spag bol come from this openness to accept and adapt, as does the innovative dishes as Kedgrec, etc. The most important meal of the week in a traditional British household is Sunday lunch. Served around 1pm-3pm, this family meal consists of a large joint of meat (typically Roast beef or a leg of lamb) roasted along with Birmingham Style meatloaf with creamy mustard sauce, Oxtail Soup /Haggis /Irish stew/Steak & Kidney Pie potatoes and served with boiled vegetables and the appropriate sauce – strictly apple with pork, horseradish with beef, and mint with lamb. There has been a recent revival in old and rare breeds such as Roast Wellington with jus and Bearnaise sauce, Traditional Roast Beef with Yorkshire pudding and Sunday Roast of the Day with Roast potato and Gravy – these are perfect for a succulent and tender roast, and indeed MLH has it all.

Steamed puddings are a traditional choice for dessert – Mud Cake/Pancakes with raspberry jam/Apple and Cinnamon Crumpets/Country Style Fruit Flan/Summer Pudding/Chocolate Trio/Caramel Bread are among the favourites. Crumbles make a more popular choice these days. Try Rhubarb and Apple Crumble, has a deliciously delicate flavour; Apple Black Berry Pie/Short Cake/Mini Tartlets/Apple Charlotte/Dundee Cake, and much more.

The action stations that take a stance to English food Egg Benedictine and Egg Florentine with the hot corner spicing it up with Scottish Eggs/Welsh Rarebit, are just a few to mention.

Brunch has become such a permanent fixture in British life that, precisely at 1100hrs AM every Sunday MLH, will transform it’s best gathering place with not only the ambience but also the food to British people’s delicacies.
