Boisdale of Mayfair: A Very British Pancake


This Shrove Tuesday, Boisdale Restaurant’s newest outpost in Mayfair will be putting on a spread of limited-edition buttermilk pancakes for your eating pleasure, even as you gird your loins for Lent.

With delights including crushed avocado with lemon, chilli and a poached Burford Brown egg (this would be SEEN’s choice), grilled marmalade ham with melted Mayfield Swiss cheese, and even a steak, egg and brown sauce option for the ardent carnivore.

There’s an option for everyone; healthy all the way to truly indulgent. As a bonus, Boisdale of Mayfair will be offering anyone who orders pancakes between 10am-11am a complimentary glass of Prosecco. The Pancake menu is exclusively available from Monday 27th Feb to Friday 3rd March so you have a chance to try them all.

Blueberry, mango, pistachio, maple syrup

Crushed avocado, lemon & chilli, poached Burford Brown egg

Oak smoked salmon, sautéed spinach, crème fraîche-1
