What’s better than brunch? A boozy brunch of course! From Peruvian-style parties to all-you-can-eat sushi, these are the best bottomless brunches in London, all featuring the winning combination of free-flowing bubbles and delicious food. Just don’t blame us for the hangover…
Seafood and Champagne – is there a better combination? On every Saturday throughout August, Oblix at The Shard are serving up a sky-high bottomless brunch, featuring a show-stopping seafood counter pile high with dishes including sustainably sourced scallops with samphire, chilli and grapefruit, crab salad and seared tuna. Enjoy unlimited bubbly, wine or organic wine as you soak up the stellar city views. £70pp, £45 extra for bottomless Champagne, or £20 for wine. Available every Saturday throughout August, 12-4pm.
Bōkan 37 is far more swanky than its exterior suggests. To get there you have to weave through the not-so-glamorous industrial landscape of Canary Wharf until you reach The Novotel, head through an unassuming door and into a small lift which whisks you up to the 37th floor. As soon as you step out, however, you’ll see the magic. There are many sky-high restaurants in London, but the vantage point from here is quite different to the city centre spots, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering jaw-dropping 360 panoramas. Their bottomless brunch is less eggs and pancakes and more grilled meats, fish and vegetables cooked to perfection. Enjoy 1.5 hours of free-flowing prosecco alongside three courses of food to balance things out. The stuffed vegetable dish is particularly good, served with crushed basil and crispy courgette, and be sure to save some space for pudding because the apricot tart with mascarpone is heavenly. After your time is up, head upstairs to the rooftop bar, marvel at the views and try one of their delicious cocktails…if you’re still standing! £37 for three courses, an extra £15 for bottomless prosecco.
As bottomless brunches go, Daisy Green’s is a rather classy affair. The Australian-inspired restaurant group has multiple branches across London, including a new opening in Mayfair, Ziggy Green – all with pretty interiors and beautifully-presented food. Bottomless brunches are available at select locations, including the original in Marylebone (Daisy Green) and Beany Green in Little Venice. Booze offerings stretch further than just prosecco here – you also get unlimited mimosas, coffee and smoothies. They’re generous on the food too: the all-inclusive £39.50 bottomless brunch deal includes one cold and one hot dish, and portions are big. From the cold section, go for their famous banana bread sandwich, served with mascarpone and fresh berries. Hot highlights include The Bondi, a healthy version of the Full English, and their broccoli and corn fritters, served with avocado and chilli pesto. You can book for up to 24 people, so it’s ideal for big celebrations with the gang. £39.50pp including bottomless drinks for two hours and two dishes.
Over the past couple of years Megan’s has established itself as the spot for bottomless brunch in the south west. It has expanded from having just one London location to five, with their signature flower-adorned ceilings popping up in trendy areas like Balham and Clapham – with another soon to open in Wimbledon. All branches offer bottomless brunch, with a choice of unlimited prosecco, Pimm’s or Bloody Mary’s. Get merry as you tuck into dishes like the veggie brunch: egg, halloumi, smashed avocado, shakshouka and toast, or the baked courgette and feta rosti. If all that fizz has increased your appetite, don’t shy away from ordering a brunch pudding – the half baked cookie dough with Nutella, pistachios and ice cream is the stuff of dreams. Available Saturdays and Sundays, £18pp for 90 minutes of unlimited drinks when ordering a main meal.
Brighten up your morning with a truly winning combination: waffles and prosecco. Peruvian restaurant Pachamama’s brunch tasting menu includes free-flowing bubbles for two hours alongside a mix of canapés followed by one sweet and one savoury waffle, designed for two people sharing. On the sweet side of things, waffles can be topped with delightful combinations like peanut butter, grilled plantain and coconut; or chocolate with toasted quinoa ice cream and cacao crumb. For savoury, toppings include Peruvian fried chicken, and beetroot cured smoked salmon with avocado and poached egg. £25pp for the brunch tasting menu plus £20pp for unlimited prosecco for two hours.
A bright and airy dining room tucked away in Clerkenwell, Bourne & Hollingsworth is one of London’s prettiest brunch spots. It’s minimalist but vibrant at the same time – think whitewashed floorboards and antique furniture paired with tropical upholstery. Luckily the food is equally impressive: we recommend the gluten free pancakes, served with toasted hazelnuts and caramelised banana, or the Huevos Benedictos with chorizo, avocado, béarnaise sauce and pico de gallo if you’re after savoury. For £25 extra you can enjoy bottomless fizz, or Bloody Mary’s for slightly less. £25 for bottomless prosecco or Bloody Mary’s on top of food.
Trendy restaurants come and go, but some places are timeless. The ever-glamorous Mayfair institution Quaglino’s is one of these places. Since opening in 1953 it’s attracted high-end crowds, and was frequented by the likes of Elizabeth Taylor in the fifties. Today it remains a glitzy venue, and their Q Champagne Brunch is particularly decadent. Staying true to its name, the menu features both breakfast and lunch options. All your classic egg brunch dishes are on offer (Florentine, Royal and Benedict) alongside meals that definitely veer towards lunch territory – think truffle risotto, Jersey oysters, lobster Thermidor and steak. All of this can be enjoyed alongside bottomless prosecco or champagne, with a selection of tasty desserts on offer too such as treacle tart, panna cotta, and homemade ice cream. Dress to impress! £40 for two courses, an extra £27 for free-flowing prosecco or £60 for champagne.
For those looking to move away from the traditional avo-on-toast, Kaia at The Ned recently launched an Asian-Pacific inspired bottomless brunch. Yes, that’s right: sushi for breakfast. Taking place every Sunday, this one’s bottomless in a different way: it’s all you can eat, rather than all you can drink. You have two hours to pile your plate with all the sashimi, teriyaki salmon, Japanese fried chicken and bao buns you can manage. Don’t go too overboard with the savoury as you’ll want some space for the puddings, particularly the melt-in-the-mouth matcha cheesecake. £45 for all you can eat for a two-hour period.
For the ultimate party brunch, head to Piano Works, which has two venues across London – one in the West End, the other in Farringdon. The main selling point here is the live band, who play songs requested by brunchers. For £50pp you can enjoy free-flowing prosecco or Bloody Mary’s alongside a two-course brunch, and unlike many bottomless brunches, bottles of bubbly are left on the table, allowing you to top up yourselves so you can really make the most of the time slot! Main dishes range from the classic – avo-on toast, smoked salmon and eggs on sourdough – to the more creative, like vegan fried chicken on pancakes. Follow with waffles, fruit salad or sorbet. The dimly lit surroundings, basement-style settings and party atmosphere make it feel more like 11pm than 11am, so we can guarantee you won’t be holding back on the bubbles…£50pp for unlimited drinks and two courses.
Enjoy a Mediterranean-style feast on the roof terrace of Spanish restaurant aqua nueva. Indulge on tapas-style savoury dishes including an avocado, toasted corn and bitter leaf salad, marinated beef, and pistachio churros with a mango and passionfruit sauce, washed down with free-flowing Mojitos, Daquris, Cava and sangria. Saturdays from 12-4pm. £60pp.
The bottomless brunch at COYA Angel Court is a very lavish affair, offering diners three hours of bottomless drinks alongside vibrant Peruvian cuisine and DJs. Kick things off with cocktails and starters (which include bao buns, ceviches and tacos) in the Pisco Bar & Lounge before sitting down for your main course, with options like corn fed baby chicken with aji panca, and Chilean sea bass with rice and lime. Music builds up throughout the afternoon, culminating in special performances which inevitably turn the room into a dance floor. £65pp for the Spirit package or £75pp for the Champagne package, including food.
The brunch menu at Sea Containers (formerly Mondrian London) is definitely more of a lunch vibe – on the menu you’ll find things like a chicken and mushroom hot pot, steak and eggs, and a fish pie. On the drinks front, choose between prosecco, mimosas, Bloody Mary’s (all £18), or Champagne, which is a pricier option (£59). From its prime location on the Southbank waterfront, Sea Containers is ideal for those who enjoy a good view with their meal. Available Saturdays and Sundays, £18 for bottomless prosecco, Bloody Mary’s or mimosas, or £59 for bottomless Champagne, both for a 90-minute period.
Rooftop, brunch, bottomless booze, pink walls, floral decor…the Rose-Tinted Rooftop at Big Chill Kings Cross is millennial heaven. Their free-flowing brunch runs every Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday, offering a choice of unlimited gin or vodka-based cocktails or good old prosecco in its classic form. Brunch dishes are wonderfully indulgent: waffle chicken with buttermilk fried chicken strips, streaky bacon and maple syrup; french toast with peanut butter ice cream; and a vegan patty with fried onion, roti, pickles and vegan cheese are all on the menu. All this can be enjoyed to the soundtrack of DJs paying disco, house and party classics for the ultimate Sunday Funday. £25 for two hours of bottomless drinks.
White sand beaches, hot yoga and parties in jungle-shrouded restaurants that go on to the early hours: that’s what we imagine when we think of Tulum in Mexico, and what Ella Canta channels in its new bottomless brunch series. With live Latin beats and dancing, colour-popping decor and bottomless margaritas, you’re invited to bare your hairband of flowers – courtesy of the restaurant and their delightful staff – and ascend into Ella Canta’s utopian vision of Tulum. Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula’s hottest spot is beginning to rival Cancún when it comes to raking in the tourists. The food has a lot to do with it and that’s where Ella Canta really comes into its own. Inspired by Mexico’s natural bounty, Chef Martha Ortiz has another restaurant in Mexico City – so this is the real deal. Start with the seabass, pineapple and basil ceviche. Mexican food is well known for its bold flavours, but they don’t come sweeter or tangier than this deceivingly simple dish. The tacos are a must-try for the main act, with an impressive line-up of sauces to elevate that crispy pork to lip-smacking proportions. And don’t turn your nose up at the churros. British fairground fakes have nothing on this authentic caramel-dipped wonder of the world. Tulum Brunch date 20 July 2019: £49 per person for 90 minutes unlimited margaritas. Regular Mexican weekend brunch: £45 per person for 90 minutes unlimited margaritas.
Say hola to free-flowing sangria at Shoreditch restaurant Tapas Brindisa, who are now offering a Spanish take on bottomless brunch, with a feasting menu of tapas and paella. Tuck into homemade croquetas and salty padron peppers, followed by a choice of seafood and vegetarian paella, washed down with unlimited Sangria or Cava. £35 for two course with sangria or cava.
