From the cool and quirky to the slightly more traditional, there is something to fit everyone’s tastes. Check out our list of the best bottomless brunches in Birmingham and get booking for the upcoming weekend.
Traditonal bottomless brunch
You really can’t go wrong with a traditional no fuss or frills brunch menu. By this we mean all the egg dishes, toast, avocado, salmon and of course a full English. Less is more in some cases and often when it comes to a brunch menu this is the case. We have put together a list of restaurants where the menu is exactly what you’d expect from a bottomless brunch menu, but is just as tasty and fun as the quirkier places on the list.
Why: Located in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, this warehouse-style restaurant with plush dark brown leather seating and warm wood floors serves up a three-course bottomless brunch on the weekends. With unlimited bellinis and prosecco to accompany the likes of scotch eggs, chicken and waffles, Shakshuka and a selection of sweet treats, this indulgent spot makes a great place for a Sunday treat, to round your weekend off perfectly.
Where: 25 Frederick Street, Jewellery Quarter, B1 3HH
How much: Two courses for £30 per person or three courses for £35 per person
Why: If it’s a sunny day, why not try The Distillery and enjoy bottomless brunch on the terrace.

Go for three courses and expect the likes of buttermilk fried chicken, breakfast baps and churros to finish off your meal with a sweet treat. You of course can’t forget the option of unlimited, bellini’s or prosecco to go with it either.
Where: 4 Sheepcote Street, B16 8AE
How much: Two courses £30 per person or three courses for £35 per person

We can't, of course, forget the booze, so it's good to know that there's the option to add bottomless bellinis or prosecco. To finish there's salted caramel ice cream sandwiches or cookies and cream sundaes, because what is a meal without a something sweet to finish after all?
