It’s no secret that I’m somewhat experienced in the bottomless brunch arena. The long time Manhattan tradition of a boozy weekend brunch finally made its way across the pond a fair few years ago now and it has snowballed with huge effect. From high end hotels to pop ups and even your local boozer, there are bottomless deals on everywhere you look. Not that I’m complaining, I would spend every weekend at a different boozy brunch if I were able to. The introduction of the lesser known Bottomless Roast and Bottomless Dinner indicates the trend has no chance of slowing down, so it’s high time for an easy look guide at the best of the best in London’s bottomless.

South Place Chop House

An old favourite of mine, South Place Chop House in South Place Hotel is one of the original stalwarts of London’s bottomless brunch scene. With an ever changing menu you’ll never be too bored for a repeat visit, which is ideal as this brunch is perfect for big groups celebrating as well as being classy enough to take your parents to. There’s plenty of variety between breakfast and lunch dishes,  some seriously good desserts to get stuck into, and the staff are generous with the boozy top ups. The restaurant has evolved to offer a bottomless roast on Sundays, and it’s a solid one. With the menu boasting three roast meats and a nut roast, as well as other dishes including their excellent fish and chips, there’s something for everyone.

Price: Brunch: 2 courses for £22.50 or 3 for £27.50. Roast: Items priced individually. Go bottomless for £18 when you have a minimum of 2 courses.
Bottomless drinks: Brunch: Prosecco, bellinis and mimosas; Roast: red, white and rose wine.
Duration: Whilst you dine (take your time over those three courses why don’t you)
When: Every Saturday and Sunday
Address: South Place Hotel, 3 South Pl, London EC2M 2AF
TOP TIP: Great for initiating the parents into the bottomless brunch scene

The Botanist

My favourite place for a boozy brunch in London. From the brilliant menu and the beautiful decor to the fantastic service and live music: The Botanist has it all. Pride of place in the buzzy Broadgate Circle near Liverpool Street, The Botanist throws its doors open in the summer but remains cosy in the winter with copper accents, leather booths, dark wood and soft mood lighting. Favourite dishes on their seasonal menu include the macaroni cheese croquettes with truffle mayo; shrimp and bacon croquettes and the huge chicken schnitzel. For a twist on the traditional eggs Benedict, order the soft shell crab benny with jalapeno hollandaise, and if you’re a fan of Sticky Toffee Pudding, the one at The Botanist is a great contender, served with sounds-odd-but-is-strangely-good cornflake ice cream. Bottomless brunch perfection.

Price: 2 courses for £20 or 3 for £25. Add £17.50 for bottomless for 2 hours
Bottomless drinks: Prosecco, Bloody Mary’s, mimosas; red, white or rose wine; Heineken and Sol
Duration: 2 hours
When: Every Saturday and Sunday
Address: Broadgate Circle, London EC2M 2QS
TOP TIP: The Botanist also do a Bottomless Dinner from 6pm every Saturday with live music. The perfect way to kick off a big night out.


Gaucho’s Electro Brunch is not only a winner on the bottomless brunch front, but is available up and down the country, so not just one for those in that there London. Small plates are the name of the game at Gaucho, and come unlimited as do the drinks – you just need to finish the dish you’re on before ordering the next. Fried Provoleta cheese with caramleised onion chutney is the perfect small plate, whilst the peanut butter dulce de leche served with mini croissants at the start of brunch is utterly beautiful. Mini avocado on toasts and Eggs Benedict round off the traditional brunch dishes, and Gaucho’s Bloody Marys are one of the best I’ve ever had. Aperol Spritz as a bottomless is a novelty, though a little watered down compared to those you may order elsewhere. Not many brunches allow you to order as much steak as you want though, do they? Great for a more special affair.

Price: £49.95 for all food and drink, £59.95 for premium which includes cocktails noted below
Bottomless drinks: Prosecco, Bloody Mary’s, Aperol Spritz, Pilsener Lager and non alcoholic fresh juices. Premium includes porn star martinis, espresso martinis (hello, hi) and sparkling rose.
Duration: 2 hours
When: Every Saturday
Address: Multiple locations in London, plus Birmingham, Edinburgh, Manchester and Leeds
TOP TIP: Ask for extra peanut butter dulce de leche because it may just be one of the best things on God’s green earth.


Famous for their espresso martinis and fun neon signage, before long Grind will be as well known for their £13 bottomless bubbles. With a range of small plates, classic brunch dishes and even a flat iron steak for a tenner, you can’t go far wrong at one of Grind’s restaurants for brunch. Endless prosecco is served in old fashioned coupes whilst you dine, and those marble table tops make a brunch at Grind seriously Instagrammable. Special mention to the chorizo and smoked cheese croquettes, as well as the bacon, which is astonishingly crispy – just the way it should be.

Price: Plates priced individually, bottomless prosecco £13
Bottomless drinks: Prosecco
Duration: 90 mins
When: Saturday and Sunday
Address: London Grind, 2 London Bridge, London SE1 9RA; Clerkenwell Grind, 2-4 Old St, London EC1V 9AA; Exmouth Market Grind, 8-10 Exmouth Market London EC1R 4QA; Covent Garden Grind, 42 Maiden Lane, London, WC2E 7LJ; Greenwich Grind, 17-19 Neslon Road, London, SE10 9JB.
TOP TIP: At £13pp for bottomless prosecco, this is one of London’s cheapest ways to get boozed up through brunch – perfect just before pay day.

Oxbo Bankside

We’re starting to get greedy and seek out all you can eat as well as all you can drink: enter the bottomless buffet at Oxbo Bankside. With towering buffet stations of salads, sushi, charcuterie, cheese boards and a huge array of bite sized cakes, tarts, cookies and jars on jars of penny sweets, this is a brunch that is sure to have something for everyone. And all of this is before you’ve ordered a main! The menu changes weekly for the main event but we recently went on a Sunday and had a beef roast, vegetarian dhal and bouillabaisse as sharing plates to dig into. The beef was superb on my visit and a decent roast in its own right despite all the buffet and bottomless fanfare. This is a great one for bigs groups given the nature of the buffet set up, and live music keeps the atmosphere buzzing throughout the afternoon. There’s also a waffle and egg station too, so go hungry for this one.

Price: £45 for all food and drink
Bottomless drinks: Prosecco
Duration: 2 hours
When: Saturday and Sunday
Address: Hilton London Bankside, 2-8 Great Suffolk St, London SE1 0UG
TOP TIP: Get an earlier booking for this one – the buffet stations stop being replenished as the afternoon goes on so as to not waste food, so an earlier slot will ensure you don’t miss out on any of the amazing food on offer.

Tanner & Co

Tanner & Co’s bottomless brunch set up has changed quite a lot since I last enjoyed a bottomless roast there (bring it back! Bottomless roasts are life!), but this is a great spot if you’re after something really chilled. There are plenty of burgers to choose from at Tanner & Co, as well as cheese toasties and a ‘fancy’ kebab, so this is a great spot to ease the hangover from the night before with some filthy food and hair of the dog.

The huge advantage at Tanner & Co is the wide range of drinks on offer and the freedom with which you will find whole bottles of bubbles on your table to keep you satisfied. Also, Tanner & Co now offer espresso martinis among their bottomless poisons, which is frankly both ridiculous and one of the best things I’ve ever heard.

Price: £40 for all drink and food
Bottomless drinks: Prosecco, Bloody Mary’s, beer, wine, cider and Espresso Martinis
Duration: 2 hours
When: Every Saturday and Sunday
Address: 50 Bermondsey St, London SE1 3UD
TOP TIP: One of the most broadly catered for bottomless out there in terms of drinks, which will keep the fussiest of drinkers happy


Avenue is a part of the extensive D&D family, who offer bottomless brunches at a fair few of their restaurants, practically enough of them to keep you going all year round. Brunch in Avenue is a buzzy affair, with great food and plenty of fizz to keep you going through your two hour slot. Its central location and their ability to cater for large groups makes it a favourite for birthday celebrations. The menu has a very American feel, with different types of Eggs Benedict, macaroni cheese, burgers, buttermilk pancakes and waffles all on the menu. Not forgetting that New York cheesecake for dessert – if you have room that is.

Price: Early sitting: 2 courses for £25.50 or 3 for £28.50. Add £18 for bottomless. Late sitting: 2 courses for £27 or 3 for £30. Add £20 for bottomless.
Bottomless drinks: Prosecco and Bloody Marys
Duration: Whilst you dine
When: Every Saturday, Sunday and bank holidays
Address: 7-9 St James’s Street, London, SW1A 1EE
TOP TIP: A later brunch booking means your table will not be turned over for another group, which usually means a more leisurely experience and sometimes, if you’re lucky, over two hours of bubbles…


One of the pricier bottomless brunches in town, ROKA is unique in that it’s one of the only places you’ll find geared around sushi rather than your more traditional eggs and pancakes. At the Aldwych branch, the bottomless brunch with wine option will set you back £59.00 per person, but this also includes sushi platters to share, one main dish each from the kitchen and a dessert sharing platter to end the meal with. In Canary Wharf it’s a different set up, with three tiered menus with different pricing to choose from, starting from £49 and going up to £69 which will include a glass of champagne on arrival, premium sushi and the option of free flowing rose.

Price: from£49 in Canary Wharf; £59 in Aldwych
Bottomless drinks: Bellini or Bloody Mary on arrival and paired wines throughout brunch
Duration: 2 hours for bookings up to 3 people; 2.5 hours for 4 or more
When: Every Saturday between 11.30am and 3.30pm, Sundays and on bank holidays at Canary Wharf between 11.30am and 8pm
Address: ROKA Canary Wharf, 40 Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London E14 5FW; ROKA Aldwych, 71 Aldwych, London WC2B 4HN
TOP TIP: Get a group of at least 4 of you to go to maximise that bottomless drinking time


Canary Wharf is becoming a bit of a destination in its own right, though if you’re not familiar with the area you’d never think it. Bōkan is the restaurant and bar occupying the top three floors of new Novotel, and they are firmly on the bottomless bandwagon. With a carefully curated three course menu to choose from with dishes such at game and foie gras terrine, scallops tartare, beef carpaccio, duck breast and a Wagyu beef burger, this brunch feels decidedly fancy. Everlasting prosecco sees you through your meal and being 37 floors up means the views of London’s skyline are unparalleled.

Price: 3 courses £35, add bottomless for an extra £15
Bottomless drinks: Prosecco
Duration: 2 hours
When: Every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and bank holiday between 12.30pm and 2.30pm (last orders)
Address: 40 Marsh Wall, Isle of Dogs, London E14 9TP
TOP TIP: After brunch head 2 floors up to Bōkan’s rooftop bar and terrace for more of those striking views and live music on Sundays.


Megan’s is a great little restaurant and lucky for us there are now four different locations of this gem in South West London; Fulham, Parson’s Green, Clapham and Balham. Warm and inviting, with blue and white checked tablecloths and the prettiest of fairy lights strung up either inside or out in the courtyard (in Fulham), Megan’s is a lovely laid back choice for brunch. Rightly famous for their Shakshouka and their brilliant deli style counter where you pick your salads and quiche at free will, Megan’s have also gone bottomless on the weekends. Although charming all year round, an al fresco brunch at the Fulham Megan’s in the summer is particularly brilliant since one of their bottomless drinks is Pimm’s – and we all know how easy it is to drink that stuff like it’s juice. The perfect summer brunch spot.

Price: Plates priced individually, go bottomless for £18
Bottomless drinks: Prosecco, Bloody Mary’s and Pimm’s
Duration: 90 mins
When: Every Saturday and Sunday between 2pm and 6pm (last sitting 4.30pm)
Address: 571 King’s Rd, Fulham, London SW6 2EB; 57-69 Parsons Green Ln, Fulham, London SW6 4JA; 41-43 Bedford Hill, Balham, London SW12 9EY; 55-57 The Pavement, London, SW4.
TOP TIP: Megan’s do a half baked cookie dough dessert stuffed with Nutella and topped with pistachios and salted caramel ice cream. Thank me later.

Bunga Bunga

Two different brunches at Bunga Bunga’s two outposts in Battersea and Covent Garden, both equally epic. In Battersea the name of the game is karaoke whilst you kick back with Nutella filled doughnuts, charcuterie and sourdough pizzas; whilst over in theatre land you’ll be entertained with live music and singers during brunch. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options all catered for too.

Price:Pizza, antipasti and 1.5 hours of prosecco & Bellini’s for £46pp
Bottomless drinks: Prosecco and beelines
Duration: 2 hours in Battersea;90 mins in Covent Garden
When: Saturday
Address: Bunga Bunga Battersea: 37 Battersea Bridge Rd, London SW11 3BA; Bunga Bunga Covent Garden, 167 Drury Ln, London WC2B 5PG
TOP TIP: On Wednesday nights Bunga Bunga Covent Garden have a night of live show tunes with a three course dinner and entertainment priced at £28pp. For £47 you can have all this and free flowing Prosecco whilst you dine, too!

Millie’s Lounge, The Ned

This one isn’t bottomless in terms of drinks but for food, and with the range of dishes on offer is well worth a mention here. Every Sunday, Millie’s Lounge in The Ned is lined with piles of pastries, fresh fruit, brunch dishes, salads, fresh seafood, roasts with all the trimmings – and that’s before you’ve even considered the cheese boards and trays of puddings for desserts. Be sure to book a table for this one: The Feast, as it’s officially called, costs £48 per person for as much food as you can eat, and drinks are billed separately. Very much a special occasion affair but totally worth the treat.

Price: £48 for all you can eat, drinks charged separately
When: Sunday
Address: The Ned, 27 Poultry, London EC2R 8AJ
TOP TIP: With this much food on offer you want to go in very hungry to take advantage of everything there. A bit fancier, The Feast at The Ned is fantastic for a special occasion, and a great option to take out-of-towners and parents to.


Another entry for The Ned but this one is bottomless drinking rather than food. Zobler’s is a Jewish delicatessen in The Ned and does a brunch with mimosas replenished before your very eyes in traditional New Yorker fashion. Bagels with smoked salmon, cream cheese, capers, red onions and tomatoes; challah French toast and buttermilk pancakes; Reubens and cheeseburgers. Wash it down with two hours of mimosas and you can’t go far wrong.

Price: Plates individually prices, bottomless mimosas for £20
Bottomless drinks: Mimosas
Duration: 2 hours
When: Saturday and Sunday
Address: The Ned, 27 Poultry, London EC2R 8AJ
TOP TIP: If you go on a Sunday be sure to catch the live band and swing dancers at The Ned’s Nickel Bar after brunch – one of my favourite things to do in London is while away the hours here feeling like I’ve stepped back in time.

The Breakfast Club Drag Brunch

I went to a drag brunch on my last trip to New York City and it was one of the best things I’ve ever done. Whilst the food was nothing to write home about, the brunch was endlessly entertaining and we were constantly topped up with mimosas to guide us through the hangovers caused by the West Village the night before. I’m skeptical that anything could be as good as Lipps’ Drag Brunch in NYC but I’d be willing to give it a good go at The Breakfast Club, where they ply you with two hours of Prosecco, mimosas and beers whilst you dig into sharing platters of bacon butties and their excellent pancake stacks. There will be routines from the Queens, lip syncing and the chance to get involved in Strictly Come Drag Queen.

Price: £42
Bottomless drinks: Prosecco, mimosas and draft beer
Duration: 2 hours
When: Every Saturday
Address: 1 Crossrail Place, Canary Wharf, E14 5EL
TOP TIP: A brilliantly fun and original way to booze your way through brunch. Once your bottomless slot is finished, ticket holders will receive 2-4-1 on Prosecco and draft beer for the rest of the afternoon, so The Breakfast Club is the perfect place to continue on partying.

100 Wardour Street

100 Wardour Street are taking their great reputation for live music and injecting it into their Saturday brunch with the introduction of their Jukebox brunch. A roaming live band will circle taking requests whilst you tuck into all the classic brunches and plenty of bubbles. Mains include honey chipotle glazed salmon and lamb chop with chimchurri, whilst the dessert menu lists the likes of molten lava chocolate cake, crepes, waffles and a cheese board.

Price: 2 courses for £30, 3 for £35, add £20 for unlimited prosecco
Bottomless drinks: prosecco
Duration: 2 hours
When: Every Saturday
Address: 100 Wardour St, Soho, London W1F 0TN
TOP TIP: Great if you’re a fan of live music – the roaming live band taking requests will keep you plenty entertained throughout the afternoon.

  1. […] Everyone loves a bottomless brunch; London is so full of them now I really cannot keep up. Something new is rearing its head though, and I’m so on board with it I can no longer keep it to myself. Having planned to try Tanner & Co in Bermondsey for brunch for some time now, I stumbled across the golden information that whilst they run a brunch (which sounds great, by the way) on Saturdays, Sunday sessions come in a different form: the bottomless roast.
