Where to Bottomless Brunch in London

Charlie Pea|February 24, 2017

We all know the British invented drinking, but did you know they invented brunch as well?

At least that’s how the legend goes. Now this inbetweeny meal – not quite breakfast, not quite lunch – has been greatly improved by the addition of free refills on daytime-appropriate bubbly and cocktails. And while this new wave of alcohol-soaked midday dining may have its roots across the pond, what could be a more natural activity for Londoners than the so-called bottomless brunch, which brings together a sociable weekend meal and excessive amounts of booze?
