Bourne & Hollingsworth
Walking into Bourne & Hollingsworth in Islington can only be likened to falling down Alice in Wonderland’s rabbit hole; it’s a little bit magical. The decor is unusual and very stylish, but for many, the main attraction of this restaurant is the promise of bottomless Bellinis and Bloody Marys to accompany their weekend brunch, for £16 and £15 respectively. Brunch is served on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am – 4pm with the option of group sharing platters, to soak up those Bellinis. The friendly staff are constantly rushing around rehydrating the giggling hen do’s and girly brunch parties with more fizz and/or tomato juice because, luckily for us, ‘bottomless’ at Bourne & Hollingsworth really does mean bottomless.

Forge & Co.
Forge & Co. in the heart of trendy Shoreditch is certainly an enjoyable place to spend a Saturday with pals. Buy a glass of Prosecco for £10 and it will be topped up throughout the meal; order pudding too and the fizz will keep on coming. This place is airy and buzzing, with long tables perfect to cater for bigger groups of bottomless brunch lovers. Try their Forge Ox Heart Burger if you’re feeling particularly brave this Saturday.

Mews of Mayfair
Bottomless brunches are not only restricted to the edgy, graffiti-splattered areas of London – back in central London Mews of Mayfair has got the boozy brunch thing down to a tee. Considering its address the brunch is a pretty good deal at £15 for bottomless Bloody Marys, Bellinis and Mimosas. Brunch is served upstairs where they often treat their brunch goers to a spot of sport on TV.
Avenue is perhaps the swankiest of the brunch spots in this list, with an intriguing ‘decanting station’ situated in the middle of the dining room. But it’s not the wine that’s bottomless, it’s of course the Bellinis and Bloody Mary’s at £15 per head, all brunch long. The food menu itself is extensive and not the cheapest but you won’t leave Avenue thirsty. Order two courses for £23.50 and three courses for £26.

Bunga Bunga is perhaps better known for it’s night time entertainment, but why not return the following morning to brush the cobwebs away with a spot of Italian-themed brunch. There’s two sittings to choose from; 11:30am and 2pm every Saturday, with live music and even karaoke accompany the feasting session. Each table gets a full three course meal (which of course includes pizza and ice cream).
