At the top of our post-lockdown wish list has been indulging in one hell of a boozy weekend brunch with our friends, and luckily for us, London is bursting with tempting bottomless brunch offerings to get stuck into.
Whether you’re an avo on toast fanatic, can’t get enough of stack upon stack of buttermilk pancakes or you’re looking to switch up your usual brunch staple for a Mexican feast over at Ella Canta, we’ve rounded up the best bottomless brunch spots in London.
Boasting Thameside views and elevated brunch classics, Saturday brunch at No. Fifty Cheyne is a no brainer.
The restaurant has recently reopened, bringing with it the return of Head Chef Iain Smith’s exceptional Saturday brunch menu. This Saturday tuck into delights such as: crushed avocado with fresh chillies and poached eggs on toasted sourdough; Ossetra Gueldenstaedtii caviar with savoury pancakes, accompanied by citrus crème fraîche, chopped shallots and chives; and buttermilk pancakes with whipped rhubarb cream, spring berries and homemade syrup.
Level up your experience and opt for their bottomless drinks option. You won’t regret it.
Celebrate the return of the weekend with a trip to The Cellar, Kindred’s glorious restaurant that celebrates the diversity of the city.
The Cellar defines its cooking style as incorporating “London Fusion” into its menu, bringing together the variant flavours, stories and ingredients told throughout the city, and their bottomless brunch menu reflects the process too.
Head down to the West London favourite and fill up on one of your brunch favourites every weekend. Choose your tipple of choice (Prosecco, Mimosa or Bloody Mary) and tuck into their continental sharing board, made up of croissants, sliced cheddar, cured ham, melon, Greek yoghurt, granola and honey. Delicious.
Location: Bradmore House, Queen Caroline Street, Hammersmith, W6 9BW
The Perception Bar has become city renowned for its extra-indulgent, sugar encased candy brunch and it’s one we cannot wait to get our hands on when they reopen again.
Every few months their theme changes but one thing stays the same. It’s always boozy, sugar coated and delicious. Their candy brunch selection offers bottomless cookie cream cocktails (fully vegan) and Prosecco, plus delicious brunch classics with a cheeky twist, including their crab benedict lathered with zesty Hollandaise. There’s always a station filled with limitless treats too. Yum.

Helping to bring an authentic taste of Scottish flavours, ingredients and cooking to London is Mac & Wild. They’ve become famous for their haggis pops and venison scotch eggs, but also their gluttonous bottomless brunch offerings.
Every Saturday sees their Devonshire Square restaurant offering bottomless Prosecco and brunch cocktails for a rather reasonable price of £23pp. Expect to be feasting on their full Scottish breakfast equipped with homemade tattie scones, haggis, black pudding, bacon, mushrooms, lorne sausage, scrambled eggs and bone marrow beans, or tuck into their mega breakfast venison burger that’s jam packed with meaty goodness.
When you ask a hardened Londoner where the best spot for brunch is, there’s no doubt Ned’s Feast at The Ned London is the answer that unfolds.
Ned’s Feast has become a Sunday favourite for brunch and Sunday roast lovers alike. The mega feast incorporates the two beautifully, offering lobster, oysters, roasts, brunch classes and salads all under one sitting. As well as a cheese and dessert bar too. The whole affair is spread over three of The Ned’s finest eateries, Millie’s Lounge, The Nickel Bar and Lutyens Grill, and it’s a truly elaborate affair. But isn’t that what heading out for brunch is all about?
There’s also epic brunch offerings at Malibu Kitchen too every Saturday, offering you an all-you-can-eat vegetarian feast. Perfect for when your veggie friends are visiting London town.
Location: 27 Poultry, EC2R 8AJ
Famed for its signature robata grilled charcoal cooking, an Ancient Japanese tradition, ROBATA has reopened with more fiery dishes, sake offerings and a brunch menu to feast on.
Soho hotspot, ROBATA’s brunch menu is home to bottomless Prosecco, spicy tuna rolls, miso aubergine and hay flamed beef fillet.
Location: 56 Old Compton Street, Soho, W1D 4UE
If there was an award given for London’s prettiest brunch it would hands down go to Mexican resto, Ella Canta. Not only does each dish photograph perfectly, it’s also guaranteed to be packed full of spiced flavours.
Although there’s no reopening date confirmed just yet, we can’t wait for Ella Canta to return to the restaurant scene, bringing with it its moreish bottomless brunch. Settle in for a three course brunch menu, filled with 90 minutes of unlimited sparkling wine or boozy margaritas (there’s even four fruity flavours to pick from). From flavourful guac topped with fresh cheese, pomegranate and gold grasshopper to seasonal quesadillas, green chicken enchiladas to pork carnitas tacos, there’s something for everyone at Ella Canta.

Mix up your usual brunch dish and dive into Mr Bao’s devilish offerings. The family-run Taiwanese restaurant brings Londoners a slice of authentic Tiawanese cuisine through their ever-so-fluffy bao.
Their weekend bottomless brunch consists of either the ‘white night in Taipei’ cocktail, a mix of white rum passion fruit jam, lychee and lime, or sample their spicy twist twist on the classic Bloody Mary, a mix of sparkling sake, vodka, fresh tomato juice, wasabi, Sriracha and wasabi salt. It sure packs a punch.
Location: 293 Rye Lane, Peckham, SE15 4UA
BBQ maestros HotBox have been busy keeping us Londoners fuelled with hickory roasts and rich, smokey flavours throughout lockdown and we can finally relish in their glory once more come 11th July when they reopen. Not only do they deliver on big flavours, HotBox has become renowned for their bottomless brunch cocktails too. We love their Lillet Rosé Spritz, a mix of Lillet Rosé Vermouth, elderflower cordial and tonic water. The alcohol taste isn’t too overpowering, making for a super refreshing summer drink.
Brunch is the ultimate weekend treat and where better to tuck into your favourite classics than at the reopening of Sea Containers Restaurant on Saturday 1st August.
Choose from Prosecco, mimosa, rossini, Grey Goose Bloody Mary or Laurent-Perrir Cuvee, before tucking into your favourite seasonal brunch dishes. We love their classic smoked salmon bagel topped with cream cheese, chives and a poached egg, and you can’t go wrong with their ‘muffuletta’ sandwich, combining charcuterie, grilled vegetables and peppers sandwiched between two chunky slices of bread.
Reopening from 1st August 2020
