Eva and I stayed at the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh over Christmas, and partook of their special Christmas Day Brunch on the 25th.
It was superb!
We dined in one of the function rooms that had been specially set aside for the brunch, and were warmly and cheerfully greeted by all the staff.
A glass of welcoming champagne whetted our appetites for the buffet feast to follow. This included:
- Cereals, juices and yoghurts
- Hams, smoked salmon and prawns
- Scrambled eggs, Ayreshire back bacon, black pudding, tomatoes, Musk sausages (the Queen eats these when she stays in Holyrood), saute potatoes and mushrooms
- Strawberries, chocolates and bread
At £37 per head, the brunch doesn't come cheap. However, Christmas is but once a year!
