Canal-side, Aussie-inspired brunches

Looking for a brunch venue with a difference? Well, how about Darcie & May Green floating restaurant and bar on the Grand Union Canal outside Paddington station? Designed by British pop artist Sir Peter Blake, this colourful eaterie provides all-day dining from an Aussie-inspired menu.

I came across this gem leaving Paddington by the Sheldon Square exit. You step down into a pastel-shaded interior furnished with simple tables and retro-style faux suede chairs. Light floods the seating area through large windows, from which you can watch passers-by at walkway level.

Bottomless brunches are on the menu with Prosecco and mimosas for 39.50 per person (tables only).

I didn't quite feel up to such a feast, so opted for smashed avocado on charcoal bread topped with two poached eggs for 11.30. Beautifully presented and delicious, this was enough to keep me going for the entirety of my four-hour train journey.

Served until 3pm on weekdays and 4pm on weekends, Darcie & May Green's brunches come in all shapes and sizes. They range from a full-on cooked breakfast called The Bondi, to the Shakshouka with spiced tomatoes and labne or broccoli and corn fritters. If you're looking for something lighter, Darcie & May Green's 'Award-winning banana bread sandwich' is just the ticket.

The all-day dining menu includes steaks, curries and salads along with vegetarian and vegan options. Craft beers, wines and cocktails along with live music set the bar a-buzzing in the evening, especially in fine, warm weather when you can enjoy drinks on the 50m upper deck.
