“Despite the eternal, off-putting queues, brunching is always such a treat” at Aussie celeb-chef, Bill Granger’s “very buzzy” (“crowded and noisy”) hang-outs. “Old favourite options given a creative spin” feature amidst the “excellent choice of delicious options” and there’s an appealing “freshness” to the dishes. The Notting Hill original still inspires most feedback, but all outlets – King’s Cross, Clerkenwell and Chelsea – have their followings. For any occasion other than brunch they provoke less interest. Top Tip – “OMG, those ricotta pancakes are amazing!”

“A great way to start the day!”“Be prepared to wait” (particularly at the W11 original) if you want to sample the trademark funky brunch of this star Aussie chef’s “cool and airy” chain. But while feedback contains lots of adulation for his “light”, “fresh” and “innovative” fare, even fans can find it “a real mix in terms of quality” and those who feel it’s a case of “hype and trend over taste” say “it’s astonishing that people queue in the rain to eat this mediocre-at-best food!”

“Friends have returned from Australia full of the joys of Bill Granger, now we can get the real thing!” – so say fans of these “cool and airy”, “posh-brunch heavens” who are prepared to endure the savage queues and “sometimes indifferent service” for his “brilliant and very different breakfasts”, and other “healthy and innovative food (although a menu which requires a dictionary might be seen as a bit pretentious!)”. However, at the W11 original in particular, there are critics who say: “it’s not worth the wait given plenty of alternatives nearby”.

"“Average” sums up pretty much everything about this place, other than the seating, which was uncomfortable. One (small) step up from visiting a Nandos. "
