At the moment they are doing a special brunch club, where each weekend they partner with a cafe/restaurant and offer a brunch deal. It is a dream come true for someone like me. Sadly this is the only one I’ve made it to so far but some of the others look pretty great too.
I must have walked past Polo Bar nearly a hundred times but I had never noticed it before. It’s nestled between shops, cafés and offices and is a tall narrow building.
The deal with Emerald Street was two mains from the brunch menu and two glasses of prosecco for £20 which is pretty good. However when we got there we decided to go rogue as neither of us really felt like drinking and my friend fancied a burger which, as you’d imagine, wasn’t on the breakfast menu.
After this I wasn’t sure if I even needed a meal but being the trooper I am I soldiered on! I am an absolute cheese fiend and I went for the Welsh rarebit. A mixture of 3 cheese on toast with bacon and avocado. Everything you need to make an excellent breakfast.
My friend opted for the burger with cheese and bacon fries. The result was a tasty burger but unfortunately with all the fancy burger chains out there it had a lot to live up to and was a little bit bland.
The best thing about Polo Bar? It’s open 24/7! It never closes. I reckon it makes the best alternative to a kebab after a night out and it’s pretty cheap – bacon sandwiches are about £3! Are total bill was £25 for two mains and two drinks which isn’t bad. Their website is here: http://polo24hourbar.co.uk
Thanks Emerald Street for introducing us to a late night gem!
