This morning I was invited to a bloggers brunch at The Bottle of Sauce in Cheltenham, which was fab. A chance to catch up and meet new bloggers and 'grammars from around Cheltenham and the Cotswolds and set the world to rights, we should do it every Saturday!
I heard heard about The Bottle, the latest pub from the Oxford based institution the Dodo Pub Co who also own the Rickety Press and The Rusty Bicycle in Oxford. It has a uber trendy dark grey exterior that I just love and a very cool interior, red brick walls, trendy sign writing, exposed beams and plenty of enamelware as well as a games room with table tennis table and table football.
The menu is simple, rustic and bang up to the minute with wood fired oven fired pizzas, burgers and the all important weekend brunch featuring bottomless filter coffee and bottomless bloody Mary's! We enjoyed brunch, which included dishes such as The Boss Man - a full English for £10, really filling buttermilk pancakes for £7 and the chilli avo' smash - avocado, poached eggs, chilli, lime and coriander on sour dough toast for £7. They even have a hangover club - if the Bottle of Sauce has caused your hangover the night before they'll take 25% off your breakfast the morning after - you can't say fairer than that! I love the branding and logo too...
I'm looking forward to revisiting with the family for a game of table tennis and to order the truffle fungi pizza or maybe the pear and prosciutto pizza or even a mother clucker (buttermilk chicken) burger! decisions decisions...
