British mums Samantha Sheppard and Christina Hutchinson were the lucky ones to try out the fabulous new Sunday Family Brunch at Home by McGettigans at City Walk!

Here is what they had to say about this new ‘home away from home’ experience:

“Last Sunday myself and Christina Hutchinson visited Home by McGettigan’s, we were greeted with big smiley faces and stunning turquoise décor.

McGettigans is a family favourite of ours but this was our first visit to Home by McGettigans and it did not disappoint. it was the perfect weather to enjoy sitting outside listening to music and enjoying the food and drinks.

Having a 1 year old who wont sit still for the duration of brunch meant we were very happy to see they had set up a little play area with table and chairs and a selection of toys. There was also face painting and balloons. The balloon swords were a massive hit for my son and his best friend. They also had a Cinema style area inside showing a selection of different cartoons

Now onto the important part – the food!

There was a wide variety on both the adults and kids’ menu with a selection of breakfast dishes, starters and main courses. I decided on the pancakes to start, easily one of the most delicious plates of pancakes I have had in a long time. They were so light and fluffy but unfortunately I had to share with my son as he eyed up the blueberries that came with them, they are his favourite. Mary, the manager, was very accommodating and brought him an additional bowl of blueberries that kept him quiet in his chair for a little longer than usual.

Being Sunday the only main course that jumped out at me was the roast beef, who doesn’t love a roast on a Sunday. I have always rated the McGettigan’s roast as one of my favourites in Dubai and this did not disappoint and the portion was extremely generous. The beef was cooked perfectly but the cheesy cauliflower was the winner for me. Feeling full to the brim we couldn’t resist the dessert offerings; the strawberry cheesecake was absolutely delicious and so creamy.

The two boys were boogying away to the band, who were singing chilled out classics and they were running around with the other kids too. The staff were so friendly and were great with the kids!

Would we go back again – definitely YES!

The only negative was the danger nap in the car on the way home”
