Review: Sunday Brunch at the Hyatt Birmingham

I’m not personally a fan of Sunday roasts at restaurants (probably quite alone in that) so I’m always keen to learn about places doing something a bit different. The Hyatt in Birmingham has done just that, with its new Sunday brunch offering.

I love the food at the Hyatt so I was super excited to pay a visit. The dining area has to be one of the nicest I know in a hotel. It’s light, bright, spacious and tastefully decorated. Even on a grey day it’s an uplifting space to spend a few hours in.

The brunch itself is an absolute feast, with so many dishes to choose from. It would be a great place for a group meal where people had different tastes or needs. The salad counter is particularly impressive with a wide range of options including delicious roasted vegetables. There’s also cured meats, smoked salmon and a seafood ceviche which is absolutely full of flavour.

Other highlights for me included the eggs benedict which were silky smooth atop a soft muffin. The pulled beef brisket was also very tasty. You can order a selection of these freshly made items – I assume they change from week to week.

There are a range of international hot dishes, the week we visited included an enjoyably warming chicken tikka masala with rice. When you’re ready for dessert, the choice is so impressive. My favourite was a freshly made waffle with caramel sauce and strawberries. It was fluffy and melt in the mouth. You’ll also find a vast array of cakes, pastries and a good choice of cheeses.

The brunch buffet is £30 per person including soft drinks and juice. For the unbelievable range, the quality of the food and the sheer amount of it, I think this is really good value. If want Prosecco, bottled Heineken or Spritz Veneziano cocktails, it’s an extra £10pp. Or for £50pp, you can plump for two hours of bottomless Moet champagne – ultimate decadence.

Brunch at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham is available every Sunday from 12:30 to 3pm. It gets a definitely thumbs up from me and we are already planning our next visit!
