Bottomless Brunch


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.

American export by CHLOE. is known for its tasty vegan grub but this month they’re partnering with hard-seltzer brand Fountain for a bottomless brunch like no other. If you haven’t heard of hard-seltzer, it’s basically alcoholic flavoured water, which makes us hope the extra hydration means less of a hangover the next day.

The bottomless brunch includes a guac burger or classic burger served with either air-baked fries or sweet potato fries, a signature by CHLOE. bake like the cinnamon espresso cookie or Chlostess cupcake, and bottomless Fountain hard seltzer which comes in passionfruit, blueberry and lime flavours. It’s being offered in all of their outposts every Saturday and Sunday throughout September and tix are limited, so if you fancy some burgers and bevs then get on it asap.

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.

For the ultimate Sunday brunch experience right in the heart of Mayfair, head to the Four Seasons at Park Lane as Executive Chef Romuald Feger brings Italian flair inspired by the cooking of his mother and grandmother. We can highly recommend the eggs benedict, which comes with a ham and cheese toastie chaser. The meatballs with roasted tomato sauce della Nonna Santoro, are rich and show off some of those Italian roots. Chef Romuald’s garlic and lemon roasted chicken is another satisfying dish that’s full of flavour. For dessert, you have a whole table to choose from that will leave you open-mouthed and bring out your greedy side; we say indulge in tiramisu and then hit up the other chocolate-coated treats. All that, and you’ve got the option of enjoying free-flowing Ruinart champagne, fancy eh?

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.

Build your own benies and unlimited Moet are just two of the reasons to pop down for Le Brunch at Coq d’Argent. The Oeufs, poached eggs, smashed avocado and crushed hazelnuts on toast is another and then there’s the star of the show…The Gauffre au bacon- that’s homemade waffle, crispy streaky bacon, fried eggs and maple syrup. On top of the sippin’ on champs and forking through food, there’s a lively atmosphere with a DJ and roaming saxophonist as well as those amazing views from their rooftop garden.

Le Brunch is available every Saturday from 11.30 to 3.00pm and is priced at 2 courses for £26.50 or 3 courses for £29.50. Unlimited Moet et Chandon can be added for £40 per person.
