Hip Hop Brunch at Pump + Grind
My Instagram followers will know by now that there’s nothing I love more on a Saturday than going to a bottomless brunch with my friends and this weekend we tried out the Hip Hop Brunch at Pump + Grind in Chesterfield.
Pump + Grind is an independent coffee shop and bar in the centre of Chesterfield which offers delicious coffee, craft beers and cocktails alongside a breakfast, brunch and evening meals menu inspired by New York’s hottest hangouts.
They offer their Hip Hop Brunch on special occasions with unlimited gin and juice for £15pp for two hours. There’s also a DJ spinning the tunes from 11am and a limited edition menu where all the options are named with hip hop puns like NY state of mind (pastrami and pickle bagel) and sublic enemy (meatball sub). Who doesn’t love a pun, right?
I opted for Boy Better Po – tempura king prawns, shredded lettuce and lemon and paprika mayo on a sub. This was served with frickles – deep fried pickles – which were delicious. In fact, I thought about the sharpness of them this morning and it literally made my mouth water.
There’s a really cool atmosphere for the brunch – obviously the tunes were on the go and the place was full of people enjoying brunch, plus the staff are really nice and attentive.
Now, I’ve been to a few bottomless brunches and they all work slightly differently with regards to top ups. You either have to ring a bell to get topped up, they might leave a bottle with you, or you have to get up and go to the bar yourself to get refills. There was none of that here – the staff were ready to replace your drinks as soon as you’d finished your last sip which I was really grateful for! We managed about seven gin and juices which I was pretty proud of (well until the morning after, of course).
Can’t wait for the next Hip Hop Brunch! Find out more about Pump + Grind here.
