A lovely friend of mine recently moved to London, and asked me to recommend the best bottomless brunch in London to her for her birthday. But, there’s a twist. DISCLAIMER – This post was commissioned by BottomlessBrunch.com but all bottomless brunch in London enthusiasm is very, very much my own.
I’ve got to be honest here and confess that as a self-crowned brunch queen
, I only knew of a couple of places to recommend and had to do a fair amount of Google research to correct my wonky crown.
By pure coincidence an email landed in my inbox from the Bottomless Brunch crew listing the best of the London bottomless brunches – and as well as new-to-me places, their extensive list included a few of my favourite restaurants in the city. So in I dove… just a quick note, I LOVE their use of the ‘chilled, chatty, party’ categories – I definitely have different groups of friends who very much fit in the differing brunch styles.
Chilled Bottomless Brunches
Sky Brunch Shangri-La in the Shard | London Bridge
Based in West Europe’s tallest building, the Shard, Shangri-La London is a luxury hotel that has been called “a new level of luxury”. Afternoon tea & lunch here is absolutely dreamy, so I know brunch will be too… the menu looks scrumptious, the lounge is fabulous and the view is utterly breathtaking.
The Last Talisman | Bermondsey
Down in the heart of Bermondsey, The funky, Bali-inspired Last Talisman is an upbeat hidden gem. The Asian sharing plates are delicious, the (unlimited) cocktails are fantastic and the soundtrack gets the blood pumping.
The Reubens Hotel | Victoria
The Rubens at the Palace is a historic hotel in Victoria, London, known for its exceptional heritage and traditional British hospitality. Experience an exquisite afternoon being served only the finest afternoon tea treats and sipping on bottomless Champagne.
Chatty Bottomless Brunches
The Saxon | Clapham
This beautiful venue seats up to 220 guests across four floors including a sun trap of a roof terrace alongside craft beers, wine and perfectly created cocktails. Meanwhile, the kitchen serves up a menu of delicious small plates, weekend brunches and Sunday roasts… Bottomless Brunch Clapham
Kurobuta | Paddington
Kurobuta takes its inspiration from the Izakayas of Japan, where tapas- style plates are served to accompany drinks in a casual setting. Originally a pop up, Kurobuta
has been such a hit with diners who fell for the unique chilled out ambience and exceptional contemporary, Japanese food, it’s been a permanent fixture in the area for many years.
Party Bottomless Brunches
Lucky Voice | Soho
Hitting all the high notes, Lucky Voice have introduced a bottomless brunch Karaoke. Enjoy 2 hours in a private Karaoke booth for you and your friends, along with bottomless drinks and great food. Sounds like a smash hit to me!
Drag Up Your Brunch | Vauxhall
This is right at the top of my ‘to book’ list – especially after watching Drag Race U.K. & Drag Race Down Under. Can I get a yasssssss queen?!
There are SO many more; on boats, at Cottons
(a St Lucian restaurant that will transport you to the Caribbean), contemporary pubs, 1920s themed, cocktail bars, featuring virtual reality… I genuinely never knew there were so many bottomless brunches in London.
*adjusts crown* there, that’s better. Is it naughty that perusing these lists
inspired me to book a gospel brunch? So guilty. Oops, there goes that crown again…
What’s your favourite brunch beverage – cocktails, mimosas, flat whites, champagne…?
[Save for later]
