Instantly, upon entering, you can’t help but notice the décor of this place; deep emeralds, warm golds and some slap-you-in-the-face art work. The gorgeous clash of plush velvet with some naughty neon makes for an inspiring, insta-worthy atmosphere – and that’s before the Sunday lunch!
Spotted about are lovely little features like sprayed gold succulents, gold striped straws (paper of course!) and gold geometric lighting. The whole interior gives off a warm glow and coupled with the deep emerald, you can just sink in and settle down for the foreseeable.
So, we get to the juicy bit we’re all here for – The Sunday Roast. The menu is exactly what you need it to be – not too much choice, but just enough to keep you satisfied. Sunday roast is simply, Beef or Chicken (obviously neither if you’re a veggie!) and IT. IS. SPLENDID! Fluffy roast potatoes with crispy skins, perfectly green, long-stemmed broccoli, carrot & swede mash, subtly sweet savoy cabbage, lashings of gravy and a big fat yorkie pud! #HEAVEN. In all honesty, it was delightful. Everything was cooked to perfection they aren’t messily on the portions! (So important when you were born hungry!!)
The staff are fabulous, checking you have everything you need (but not too much because we all know how annoying being spoken to with a mouthful of food is.. (#eyerollemoji) and service is very prompt.
The only real disappointment was the dessert… Cheesecake with raspberry sauce and gluten free brownie… Whilst the addition of the candyfloss with the cheesecake was a fab novelty, the gluten free brownie only made me shed a little tear for Celiac’s. It was described as light and delicious, but you could use those triangle blocks to build houses! Devastating.
All in all, I would recommend School for Scandal to anyone… just #browniebeware.
