*These* are the best bottomless brunches you categorically need to try in London
Bōkan, Canary Wharf
If you’re after bottomless brunch with a view, book in at Bōkan. The restaurant offers 360° views over the London skyline from the 37th floor, so it’s an ideal spot for a special occasion. Plus, the food is next-level. Think: burrata with beetroot and pomegranate, grilled duck breast, flat iron steak and mouth-watering sweet treats. £50 will get you three courses, two hours and full-flowing prosecco.
This Aussie cafe proves that they know how to do brunch down-under. Over your 1 hour 30 min time slot at Lantana, choose between the likes of toasted courgette bread with halloumi, pistachio French toast with spiced pears and orange mascarpone, and bubble ’n’ squeak with sausage, egg and black pudding. Good news for coffee fiends, too, as with unlimited prosecco and mimosas also comes bottomless coffee.
Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings, Clerkenwell Bourne & Hollingsworth is probably the most Insta-worthy brunch spot we know of. There’s rattan furniture, white brick walls, floral fabrics and, of course, plants galore. Go bottomless with bellinis (£18), Bloody Mary’s (£17) or bubbles (£25), with scones, pancakes, eggs, full English breakfasts and many more #foodporn options to pick from.
Little Nan’s, Catford, Deptford and Fitzrovia
We’re calling it: there is no quirkier, more chilled-out place to enjoy bottomless brunch with your besties than Little Nan’s. Over two hours, enjoy sharing platters displayed on adorable three-tier cake stands, teapots of Bucks Fizz, Bloody Mary’s and prosecco for just £30 (£35 at the Fitzrovia venue). And don’t forget to take selfies amongst the wonderfully kitsch, Nan-style decor.
Grind, London Bridge, Clerkenwell and Covent Garden
Booze aside for a moment; the coffee at Grind is seriously good, so make sure you order a flat white alongside your bottomless prosecco (which is very kind to the purse strings at just £13). There’s plenty of meat-free options (including wild mushroom hash, sweet potato harissa cakes and a full vegetarian breakfast), and mouth-watering carnivorous offerings (cheeseburger with skin-on fries, one-pan eggs with chorizo and a breakfast burrito with egg, sausage and bacon). Plus, the interiors were made for the ‘gram: think neon lights, millennial pink and warehouse-style decor.
Bad Egg, Barbican
With a choice of Bloody Mary, mimosas or prosecco, brunchers have two hours to dine on the likes of pork belly & slaw, cheeseburger hash and vegan chilaquiles. Bad Egg also offer ‘frunch’ – bottomless brunch on a Friday – between 2.30pm and 10pm, with the added options of unlimited frozen boozy slushies or Coronas, plus chicken wings, nachos and burgers.
Mac & Wild, Fitzrovia and The City

Smokey Tails, Bethnal Green
There’s a 1 hour 45 min slot for feasting and boozing at Smokey Tails, where you can choose between five food options (think Cherry Cola-glazed gammon, crunchy brioche French toast and veggie potato hash), plus unlimited pancakes and drinks.
Jones & Sons, Dalston and Islington
For £39 each, you and your pals can sip on Bloody Mary’s, Buck’s Fizz, prosecco or alcoholic iced tea. For the food, think avo on toast (naturally), wild mushrooms with truffle oil and poached eggs, full English (for veggies or meat-lovers) and toffee, honeycomb and banana Belgian waffles, to name just a few. And if you’re on the wagon, Jones & Sons offers grub plus coffee, tea, OJ, grapefruit juice, virgin Mary’s or homemade iced teas for only £29.
Smith & Wollensky, Covent Garden
This may be one of the capital’s premier steakhouses, but there’s plenty of drool-worthy brunch options, from smoked bacon hash & poached eggs to a full veggie breakfast with halloumi and a fried egg. Smith & Wollensky‘s a la carte menu offers dishes ranging from £5-£20, with two-courses from the set menu for £22 and three courses for £26. Bottomless sparkling wine is £22, or go all out and go for the £50 champagne option.
Cantina Laredo, Covent Garden
If you’re looking for a boozy brunch that’s a little bit extra (umm, yes please), then head over to Cantina Laredo who offer a four-course modern Mexican brunch with to-die-for drinks.

Piano Works, Farringdon
Music lovers? Then make Piano Works your boozy brunch of choice. Every Saturday, there’s pianists (naturally) and a live band between midday and 4pm. There’s also two bottomless brunch options: one with a two-course brunch for £50, and one with a one-course brunch box for £35, depending on how #hangry you are.
Bon Vivant, Bloomsbury
Head to Bon Vivant on Marchmont Street for ‘drunch’, which either stands for ‘dinner, breakfast, lunch’ or ‘drunk lunch’, depending on your priorities. There’s prosecco, bellinis or mimosas to wash down pastries, pancakes, eggs and, umm, steak. As you do.
Bunga Bunga, Covent Garden & Battersea
Enjoy a two-hour bottomless prosecco or bellini brunch for £28 per person (+ £20 for the booze) on Saturdays at this Italian karaoke joint. You can get interactive with the ‘build your own bellini’ kits on each table at Bunga Bunga, and there’s live entertainment as well as – you guessed it – karaoke.
