8 places for Bottomless Brunch in Liverpool
3 years ago
There’s so much about going out in Liverpool that we missed during lockdown, and high up on that list is Bottomless Brunches.
Liverpool does love a free-flowing Bottomless Brunch to get its weekends off to a fabulous start and now with restaurants reopening, the good news is they’re back on.
Some favourite venues in the city are still not up and running yet, but there are lots of places where you can enjoy it again now. Don’t forget you’ll need to book tables in advance and it’s a good idea to check websites for full info on safety measures and anything else new that’s been introduced.
Here are 8 to choose from if you’ve spent the past few months dreaming of brunch …
Neighbourhood, Castle Street
If you feel like you’ve been in pyjama bottoms and no make-up for way too long, then Neighbourhood is the place to get some glam back in your life. NBHD reopened on July 9 with a new vibe and basically the main rule is ‘dine, drink … but please don’t dance’ – not just yet anyway. That doesn’t mean the Bottomless Brunch, on Saturdays and Sundays between 10am and 5.30pm, is any less amazing. £35 will get you 90 minutes of unlimited gin, vodka, prosecco, beer and seasonal cocktails, plus one brunch dish from the menu including at NBHD burger, healthy poke bowl or eggs royale.
Lu Ban at Cain’s Brewery Village
For something a bit different, try the Xing Fu Weekend Bottomless Brunch at Lu Ban, served on Saturdays and Sundays between 12 and 3pm. Dishes are delivered over 90 minutes and the food menu includes crackers, spring rolls, Tianjin stir fried noodles, Sui Mai, and a roasted meat of the day – veggie, vegan and pescatarian options are also available on request. You can choose from inclusive red and white wine, house fruit juices, Jasmine tea, and Lu Ban beer and cocktails. It’s £29.50 for the 90mins or you can upgrade to 120mins for an extra £7.50pp.
Ma Boyles, Tower Gardens
Ma’s is an institution, just off the waterfront by St Nick’s church, and it’s currently got a limited time special offer on its Bottomless Brunch, meaning it’s just £25pp. Available on Saturdays, 10am-2pm and Sundays 10am-1pm, it covers 90 minutes, with one dish from a brunch menu featuring The Full English, The Veggie/Vegan Brunch, breakfast pancakes or eggs Benedict. Unlimited drinks include prosecco, Aperol Spritz, Bellini, fruit Gin Spritz and Ma’s Queen of Liverpool pilsner. (Also pictures at the top of this article)
Castle Street Townhouse
Castle Street is even more of a foodie must-go since Liverpool’s Without Walls project started, because now it’s pedestrianised and there’s lots more outdoor seating as well as inside tables. Townhouse is back open after shutdown and ready to welcome back diners for its Bottomless Brunch which is available daily, £35pp including two courses and bottomless prosecco. Choose from starters like bourbon-glazed ribs or cod and salmon fishcakes, and there’s pan-fried salmon, burger and chicken supreme in among the mains.
The Alchemist, Brunswick Street
If you’re in and around Castle Street, then The Alchemist is only a minute or so away, on Brunswick Street, and it is pledging to take back summer with its Boundless Brunch, every Saturday from 10am to 2pm. The Saviours of Summer Boundless Brunch is £25, it lasts 90 minutes and that cover you for any one dish from the brunch menu plus three cocktails (including Aperol Spritz) or upgrade to boundless drinks for an extra tenner. Try dishes including The Full Alchemist, a pancake stack (sweet or savoury), salt beef Benedict and a breakfast burrito.
Revolution, Albert Dock, St Peter’s Square and Cavern Quarter
Revolution likes to start the party early and it’s got a choice of three different venues in Liverpool to do it in. Bottomless Brunch here is on for two hours, Saturdays and Sundays, priced between £20pp and £30pp depending on what time you fancy (earlier is cheaper!). There’s unlimited drinks from a menu including Aperol Spritz, prosecco and Bloody Marys, or you can upgrade to include V&Ts and Pornstar Martinis for an extra £10. On the food menu there are dishes like Avocado Brunch, Fried Chicken and Bacon Waffle or – ready for this? – margherita or pepperoni pizza.
Hafla Hafla, Lark Lane
Like Castle Street, Lark Lane is getting a new post-lockdown pedestrianized look to encourage more people to eat out and sit out. Hafla Hafla is a big favourite for Middle Eastern-inspired small plates on the Lane and after delivering through lockdown it’s opened its doors for sit-ins again with new opening hours. That means Hafla Brunch Club is also back, from 10am-1pm on Saturdays and Sundays, £25pp. The hand-made pittas are definitely among the best you’ll find anywhere in Liverpool, same goes for the halloumi fries, and there are plenty of veggie and vegan choices. Drinks include prosecco and mimosas.
La Tasca, Queen Square
If you fancy some tapas with your Bottomless Brunch – and it could be as close as you get to Spain this summer – then La Tasca’s definitely an option worth looking at and the Liverpool one was the first in the country to reopen with safety measures on July 17. Bottomless Brunch is on Saturdays and Sundays between 11am and 3pm, for two hours at a time. You get a choice of three tapas dishes plus endless prosecco, beer or Blood Marys and it’s £24pp.
