Where to Bottomless Brunch in London

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?
