A Bob Bob Ricard Birthday

Bob Bob Ricard link
The company I work for allows us the day off for our birthday. Luckily for me as mine will often fall around the Easter Bank Holiday, like this year, instead of the four day weekend, I was able to get five days.

After seeing the famous 'press for champagne' button at Bob Bob Ricard instagrammed to excess I needed to visit for myself and see if it was more than this gimmick. I knew my mum would love it and dad would enjoy complaining about how much it was going to cost him. Unfortunately for dad he was unwell the day we were due to visit for lunch so left mum and I to go alone. Very dangerous with no one to reign us in.


As soon as we were seated in our comfortable booth we fought over who got to press the button first. As it was my birthday of course I won that battle. Two glasses of champagne were promptly brought to our table whilst we perused the menu and admired the surroundings. 


The decor is amazing and feels like stepping back in time and mum gave the art deco touches. A nice touch in the booths which I really liked was that hidden in the backs of the chairs were hangers to hang your coats so you have them close by if needed and when you decide to leave you're not waiting around to catch someones attention or wait for them to find it.

The restaurant felt relaxed for the lunchtime service with waitresses ready for you at a whim without hassling you through your meal. There was a lovely ambience from fellow diners which appeared a mix of client dinners, couples enjoying a romantic lunch and groups of friends enjoying a meal together.



We both perused the pink menus and nibbled on bread before our mains arrived. Mum went for steak and I, in a complete shocker chose the chicken! I have to tell you it was the best chicken I've ever eaten and the chicken skin - amazing. 

To share we picked truffle mash and spring greens. As fellow truffle lovers will know the mash was delicious and the perfect pairing for our meals. 





After the obligatory selfie with my champagne glass we couldn't finish our meal without the signature dish, the Chocolate Glory. A chocolate shell that melts to reveal chocolate brownie, passionfruit and orange jelly and meringue.


I'd definitely recommend Bob Bob Ricard for a special lunch as it was a lovely venue, delicious meal and made that little bit more special with drinking champagne a requirement rather than an indulgent choice. 

This weekend my friend and I are heading to BBR for dinner so I'm looking forward to seeing how it compares and what makes the evening experience different to my lunch one. I'll report back.
