Best Bottomless Brunches

Looking for the best bottomless brunches in London? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Regular brunch is all well and good, but sometimes only a limitless supply of mimosas will get the job done, and luckily London is home to a whole array of brilliant bottomless brunches.

If you’re going to try and drink as much as possible in two hours, it’s a good idea to eat well, so our favourites not only have great booze but great food too. Our guide has all the best boozy brunch spots in the city from Mexican feasts in Dalston to sophisticated Champagne-fuelled menus in Mayfair.

Whereas bottomless brunches in London used to be pretty limited in their scope, there’s now more choice than ever. At Mr Bao in Peckham, for example, skews more toward the lunch end of brunch with a menu of inventive bao specials and a rotating list of signature cocktails.

If you’re looking for a more traditional bottomless brunch, then there are plenty of those too. At Cafe Biltmore in Mayfair (from Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton), you can sip on free-flowing bubbles or Bloody Marys while you enjoy a Croque Monsieur or some buttermilk pancakes with vanilla cream, berries & maple syrup.

Whether you’re in need of a real hangover buster or celebrating a special occasion, we’re spoilt for choice. So without further ado, and in no particular order, here are the best bottomless brunches in London.


Bored of regular ol’ brunch? Got avo toast fatigue? Head to Peckham where Mr Bao is serving up a brunch offering that eschews the standard and heavily features (you guessed it) bao buns. Expect the MB regulars (like beef brisket, shiitake mushroom and pork belly baos) alongside a couple of brunch-exclusive options: a smoked ham hock fritter bao with egg & plum sauce and a smoked salmon bao with egg & furikake. There’s a selection of sharing bits too – the pancakes with blueberry miso compote is a particular standout – and, of course, bottomless cocktails for anyone who prefers their brunch boozy.


If sushi, robata skewers and hirata buns sounds like your kinda brunch then Shoreditch izakaya spot Apothecary is the place for you. Their weekend brunch menu is stacked with Japanese faves and you get to try a bit of everything as you pick a dish from each of the skewers, buns, veg, fried and dessert sections. So after starting with sushi rolls for the table, you can tuck into teriyaki chicken skewers, pork belly & gochujang hirata buns, Japanese fried chicken, charred gem lettuce with citrus miso, smoky tenderstem broccoli, miso glazed aubergine, yaki soba noodles, and miso caramel ice cream. With two people you get most of the menu, with a bigger group you’d be able to have the lot. It’s £35 per person for the food and a welcome drink on arrival, which is decent value for the amount and variety you get (the plates can come out pretty rapidly so just be prepared for a very full table) and if you want to make it bottomless, you can add on free-flowing drinks for £25 per person. This is where Apothecary really nails it because if bubbles ain’t your thing, you can do bottomless cocktails instead, with Bloody Marys, Summer Cups and Coffee Cobblers available, and you don’t have to stick to the same drink either. Cheers to that.


Michelin-starred Jason Atherton is behind the new brunch menu at Cafe Biltmore where you can dine on classics like the Croque Monsieur or Madame; buttermilk pancakes with vanilla cream, berries & maple syrup; two-day aged sourdough pizzas; or even sirloin steak and chips. We can recommend the fried calamari, a healthy portion for two with a Thai dressing & sweet chilli dip and also the buttermilk chicken burger inside a soft brioche bun, with Churchill sauce and a side of fries. Lovely. It’s pet-friendly, child friendly and with London’s number one acoustic roaming band The Travelling Hands belting out hits past and present within the half-covered heated urban oasis while you sip on free-flowing bubbles, Bloody Marys or mojitos, what’s not to like?

We may not be able to party like it’s 1999 at the minute (thanks Covid) but the bottomless brunch at Crazy Pizza is probably the closest thing we’ve got to being back in the club. Running at their Marylebone site, the bottomless brunch at Crazy Pizza is three hours of immersive fun. Expect bottomless champers (the good stuff), a DJ, live bongos, pizza dough tossing and plenty of shots and sparklers. There are three courses of Italian food to indulge in too, including a creamy burrata, their signature thin-crust pizzas and a homemade tiramisu. The brunch is a spennier one, costing £100pp but for three hours of free-flowing booze, plenty of food and an array of live acts, we would say it’s good value. It’s also the perfect excuse to dust off your glad rags and let your hair down, something we’re all in need of after the past year.

We’re already fans of Santo Remedio – it’s one of the best Mexican restaurants in town – but now they’ve got a new bottomless brunch menu, we love it even more. It all kicks off with some of their famous guac and chips before a sharing starter; we can highly recommend the pork belly tacos with chicarron and tomatillo salsa because they are SO GOOD. And they don’t skimp on the filling either, so you’ll need both hands to stuff them in. The mains feature classic dishes like chilaquiles, torta agohada and chicken enchiladas suizas, which come in a moreish tomatillo sauce and topped with Chihuahua cheese. The huevos motulenos – corn tostadas with black beans, grilled bacon, plantain, fried eggs and salsa roja – is a bit like a Mexican fry-up and if you like eggs in the morning, this really hits the spot. There’s only one way to finish here and it’s with a pot of churros and cajeta (dulce de leche sauce) for dippage, trust us when we say you really don’t need anything else (expect maybe another portion). Bubbles and beers are both amongst the bottomless options but this is a Mexican brunch so it’s gotta be the margaritas – and they do shake up a particularly great one at Santo Remedio.


Rupert St, West End, London

If there was ever a brunch to help with hangxiety (that’s hangover anxiety FYI), it’s the new alpine bottomless brunch at Heritage. Every Sunday they’ll cater to all your cheese and chocolate needs with the three course ‘food station’ brunch. First up is the cheese fondue, which is brought to your table with a side of bread and potatoes for double-dipping – cue rude jokes. Then there’s more cheese at the raclette station, along with charcuterie and veggies that you can cover in gooey, gooey cheese. There’s also a charbonnade station (a copper meat grill for those who don’t know what one of is either) to get grilled meat, veggies and seafood. If you manage to save room for pud then there’s a four-foot, 12-tiered chocolate fountain to feast on. All this will only set you back £42 per person and there’s an option to upgrade to bottomless champers too for an extra £30pp. Wear stretchy pants.

Bottomless dim sum AND bottomless booze? RedFarm is doing it every Sunday with the unlimited champagne and dim sum brunch. For 90 minutes you can fill up on as much food as you can handle, with the menu including RedFarm classics like shrimp & snow pea leaf dumplings, pork & crab soup dumplings, beef dumplings with hoisin, scallion pancakes with bacon and the famous cheeseburger spring rolls. The portions are on the large side here (it is an American import after all) so whilst it’s tempting to order plates and plates of the dumplings, you defo don’t wanna miss the spicy crispy beef – you’ll be wanting fried rice and some veggies with that too – or the custard bao for pud, so go for a few dishes at a time before re-upping. We think fizz the way to go and the Collet champagne stands up to the strong flavours very nicely. If bubbles ain’t your thing, you can go for bottomless wine, cocktails or beers instead. It’s £60 for the boozy brunch and £40 if you go for soft drinks, and with both unlimited food and alcohol you can definitely get your money’s worth.


71 Aldwych, London WC2B 4HN

Roka can be pretty spenny but if you head to the Aldwych branch on a weekend and go for their Han Setto brunch you can try a huge selection of dishes without breaking the bank. Designed for sharing, the menu kicks off with a selection of pickles, edamame beans, and a bellini. The brunch continues with eight sharing dishes, brought out in no particular order, including a selection of sashimi, prawn tempura, beef gyoza, and salmon and avocado maki. AND if you think that’s brunch done, then think again as you also get the choice of a main course followed by the HUGE dessert platter which is Instagram heaven. A boat containing everything from a chocolate Buddha to panna cotta, fruit, truffles and a whole lot more. Add in unlimited wine, you know it makes sense.
