For us, nothing quite screams ‘it’s finally the weekend’ more than a bottomless brunch with friends, consisting of avocado on toast and free-flowing fizz, cocktails or beers. You do not need us to tell you that bottomless brunch is now an integral part of the UK’s dining culture, with thousands of restaurants, pubs and cafes throughout the nation offering up their take on the alcohol-fuelled twist to everyone’s favourite meal. The city of Birmingham is no different, with the title of Birmingham’s best bottomless brunch being a hotly contested one.
For those not in the know though, allow us to take you through a quick explanation of what exactly bottomless brunch is. Brunch refers to a meal that is traditionally enjoyed on the weekend, between breakfast and lunch, while bottomless brunch refers to the addition of unlimited alcohol to accompany your meal. Bottomless brunches typically last between 90 minutes to two hours, with Prosecco being the drink of choice for most restaurants. The definition of bottomless brunch has expanded a lot in recent times though, with several restaurants now offering bottomless brunch all day, adding cocktails and beers to their brunch drinks lists and serving brunch on several days of the week (traditionalists, look away now!)
When it comes to the best bottomless brunch Birmingham has to offer, we have got you covered. Whether you reside in Birmingham full time or you are just visiting for the weekend, you are in luck because there are lots of bottomless brunches available to try here.
From cool and quirky concepts to the slightly more traditional venues, there is a Birmingham bottomless brunch to fit everyone’s tastes. To check out our list of the best bottomless brunches in Birmingham, read the below and book a table for you and your mates next weekend.
