Deep in the heart of Pall Mall lies The Balcon, an all-day French brasserie serving modern cuisine in a luxurious setting.

The elegance of the Grade II-listed building, home of Sofitel London St James, is ideal for enjoying a lavish Brunch. Preceded over by Kiwi chef Matt Greenwood, he infuses classic French dishes with modern fusion concepts.

For a light and refreshing breakfast, try a crushed avocado and Cornish crab on sourdough with pink grapefruit for a hit of citrus, or treat yourself to a baker’s selection for just £12, which includes a French pastry basket with freshly squeezed juice, coffee or tea. Weekend Brunch is a decadent affair: small plates include beef tartare with truffled egg yolk and beetroot crisps or a seared mackerel with pickled vegetables. Mains include classic fry-up’s and scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, but make sure to leave some for their morning desserts – the pistachio waffle with a strawberry salad and Sauternes cream is the cream of the crop.

In summer months, the whimsical al fresco terrace boasts huge umbrellas to enjoy a lavish meal and inside there is a grand spiral staircase, arched windows, leather banquettes and lime green curtains providing a luxuriant atmosphere.

Charing Cross Underground and Piccadilly Circus Station are both within walking distance.
