One of London’s favourite brunch spots has taken to the water.
Aussie aces Daisy Green are launching two brand spanking new city barges next to Paddington station. Long known as masters of the bottomless brunch (more on that later), these new boats will shore up Daisy Green’s reputation of delivering amazing Australian food. The bodacious barges are opening today, making them a swish new spot for a winter meal.
You’re in no danger of overlooking them either, because the boats are pretty easy to spot. The boats are two-storey riots of colour, designed by British pop art royalty Peter Blake. That name may sound a little familiar to you. He’s the creator of the album cover for Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, by some guys called The Beatles.
So who will be joining Daisy, Timmy, Beany, and Peggy Jean as the latest members of the Green clan? Well, the good ship Darcie is the restaurant barge – she’ll be serving the group’s trademark dishes, alongside New World wines and plenty of cocktails. Sister ship May will be a cafe and exhibition centre that will tell the history of Paddington.
Anyyyyyway, back to that bottomless brunch! For £39.50, you can expect two courses and unlimited prosecco and mimosas over two hours. (Bottomless coffee and smoothie options are also available.) Choose from such delights as banana bread sandwiches, smashed avocado on charcoal bread, or the ‘fancy bacon roll’ with holy f*ck hollandaise. Everything here is worth swearing about, and if you don’t believe us, just look at that picture. You’re going to end up sinking these ships with all that food, but it will most definitely be worth it!
You’ll find Darcie & May Green on the Grand Union Canal, Sheldon Square, Paddington Central, W2 6DS. Nearest station is Paddington. Visit their website to check out their menus and find your nearest location.
