The bottomless brunch that doesn't include ANY food! Yes, you read it correctly, a brunch without food. I don't think this place understands what brunch is, so let me explain. It's a simple portmanteau. You've taken the word 'breakfast', yeah, and then you get the word 'lunch', and you whack them together to make BRUNCH! Genius. So, unless you're an alci, you'd hope one of those faithful meals might bring some food to the table.
Basically you pay £30 to be able to sit down and drink as much prosecco as you can in 90 minutes, served one glass at a time. If you actually want to eat anything you have to pay an extra tenner. We were the only people in the whole place and I can see why. Don't fall for the recommendation unless you're planning to get an AM session in.
Over the years I have held various corporate events at Balls Brothers and service levels have been hit and miss but last night really was the nail in the coffin. Booked a table for 6 to have drinks and nibbles and was given one for 4. Upon requesting a larger table the pleasant bar man asked his superior who promptly told him whilst I was in earshot to tell the customer that if an 'area' is booked, it's an 'area' and no seats are guaranteed. His approach to customer services was quite frankly 'rude' and it even appeared that he was training the bar man to treat customers in a similar fashion. No thank you, Balls Brothers. I will be taking my corporate business elsewhere.
