As the temperature drops, bottomless brunches fall to the wayside – who wants to be digging into poached eggs and mimosas as the sun sets at 4pm?
Fear not though, boozy offerings don’t stop at eggs benedict. This winter sees a whole host of restaurants offering bottomless Sunday roasts complete with fluffy potatoes, lakes of gravy and, most importantly, free-flowing fizz.
Not for the faint-of-heart, these feasts are every bit as hearty as they are hedonistic. The perfect post-brisk-walk tonic, we asked DesignMyNight to round up the best bottomless roasts to try this winter. Caution: *may contain truffle mac & cheese*.
Quaglino’s – London
The first restaurant to be publicly visited by Her Majesty The Queen back in 1956, and going on to host the cream of Hollywood’s crop, Quaglino’s has earnt itself the reputation as one of SW1’s most luxe restaurants.
With a three-course menu consisting of dishes such as Jersey Oysters and 28-day aged Hereford beef sirloin, you too can be treated like royalty for the day – add free-flowing bubbles for the ultimate decadent experience.
Lost Society – London
Battersea-based boozer Lost Society recently underwent an art-deco inspired makeover and has become something of a South West London institution when it comes to the weekend.
Hosting roof-raising DJs late into the night, Sundays are a much more chilled affair. Head here for mellow acoustic tones served up alongside bottomless bloody marys and quirky dinner options – think roast jerk chicken with all the trimmings alongside roasted halloumi, courgette and carrot slices.
South Place Chop House – London
Hidden away inside the beautiful South Place Hotel, this place could be easily overlooked. Offering top-quality joints alongside a range of brunch dishes there is also the option to add free-flowing Clarendelle Bordeaux for just £20 per head.
Boasting sleek interiors and top quality servers, neither your gravy boat or wine glass will be at risk of running empty whilst dining here.
Tanner & Co – London
Set in a former warehouse with vintage-style pommel horses for booths, a Sunday spent at Tanner & Co will have you reminiscing of school days gone by (minus the stodgy dinners).
This trendy Bermondsey spot is known for its family-style Sunday roasts, served in the centre of the table – perfect for second helpings.
With the option to add bottomless fizz, wine, bloody marys or espresso martinis, elasticated waistbands are encouraged.
