What a shambles! Proceed with extreme caution to the brunch menu…

Perhaps the evening meals are a revelation, but I for one will not be back.

Sunday brunch yesterday consisted entirely of ingredients that you could buy in costcutter, and was presented as such.

I have never before put baked beans and coriander in a flour tortilla and called it brunch. Fig Bistro have, and charge you close to a tenner for the privilege.

We waited over 30 minutes for our drinks despite being one of 2 tables in the bistro. My bloody mary arrived in a jug after half an hour, except the waiter had not yet added the vodka, and proceeded to tip vodka into my glass at the table.

I'm not usually prone to bad mouthing places, and everywhere can have an off day. I felt that fig bistro was a class apart in terms of it's pretention and failure to deliver.
