Best bottomless brunch Bristol: 12 places for pancakes and prosecco

To hunt down the best bottomless brunch in Bristol we had to do some serious research. We get it, it's a tough gig, but someone had to do and we're pretty generous with our time when research is focused on pancakes and prosecco. We don’t want to be bringing ideas to the table (if you’ll pardon the pun) that are sub-par, so when looking for the top options in this small southwestern city we looked at all kinds of factors. Is the food any good? Is the bottomless option bubbles, cocktails or beer? And how nice are the interiors?

Combining each of these elements we’ve worked hard to curate the ultimate guide to the best bottomless brunch in Bristol. These spots are the perfect place to gather with friends to enjoy good food and drink, making the most of lazy weekend mornings and long afternoons. You see, there’s no set time brunch can take place. Sure, traditionally it’s between breakfast and lunch, but these days bottomless brunches often stretch on long into the afternoon and provide the ideal place to kickstart a night out.

Most places – as the name suggests – stand by their bottomless promise, but it’s worth noting that every venue will have restrictions of some sort. Typically places provide a time slot of a couple of hours when you can enjoy the bottomless bubbles or booze. Alongside the tipples, the other main reason to indulge in this modern-day-weekend-ritual is of course the food. Being a multicultural hub, Bristol has all kinds of delicious options. There are of course traditional pancakes and waffles on most menus, but there are also some more altogether interesting menus. Take Revolución de Cuba Bristol for instance, a Latin-inspired Cuban bar which serves up tapas and cocktails for a refreshing change to the usual brunch fodder.

So, whether you’re looking for somewhere to kickstart a weekend of merriment or are in dire need of some hair of the dog, these are the best bottomless brunches in Bristol to book.

Revolucion de Cuba

Sweetcorn fritters, a chorizo hash and an avocado brunch are all on offer at Revolucion de Cuba, making it a bit more interesting than your usual eggs on toast. Prices vary depending on your time slot for bottomless brunch, but range from between £20-30 per person and each sitting includes a choice of bottomless prosecco, cocktails or Spanish shandys. Unlike most other options, this is available every day too, so no need to wait until the weekend to get your fix. Music is ubeat, interiors are interesting, and if you’re lucky there’ll be live entertainment to feast your eyes on too.

Packages start at just £20, and brunch dishes are hearty fare like fried chicken and bacon waffles or a pepperoni pizza.

Pitcher & Piano

People can often be a bit snobby about a chain restaurant, but there’s something comfortably consistent in a brand that churns out the same stuff day in and day out. So, while this might not be the most refined food in the city, we think it’s a pretty decent option if you’re looking for an affordable bottomless brunch in Bristol. For £28 per person you’ll get unlimited prosecco, bellinis, mimosas, Aperol Spritzes or beer and there’s a good choice of mains too. One example is the breakfast brioche which is stuffed with bacon, sausages, a fried egg, cottage cheese and a sweet chilli ketchup. A harissa spiced Moroccan baked breakfast also offers something beyond the ordinary, but if you fancy a classic Eggs Benedict and avocado on toast are both present and correct.
