Five best brunches in London
Brunch has been big for years in London, so the city’s peppered with great places to enjoy it. Whether you fancy something wholesome or indulgent, quintessentially British or a little different, there’ll be a place for you. If you’re visiting London, these are our top five brunch spots. Just ask guest services to make a booking for you.
The Good Egg, Soho
Originally based in Stoke Newington, The Good Egg’s imaginative brunch fare has recently come to Kingly Court in Soho. Expect hearty New York and Middle Eastern influenced dishes – and incredible cocktails too.
Our team recommend – ‘Shakshuka, or the marinated feta hash – with a bloody mary of course!’
Duck and Waffle, the City
Known both for its delicious food – the brunch menu offers much more than just waffles – and incredible views, Duck and Waffle is the best place for admiring London’s skyline while you eat.
Our team recommend – ‘the famous duck and waffle or the duck benedict, and a flat white.’
Taking inspiration from both traditional and contemporary Greek cuisine, OPSO’s dishes are at once authentic and adventurous. The brunch menu is no exception – and what’s more, the contemporary setting is gorgeous too.
Our team recommend – ‘Prime smoked salmon with a fizzy chamomile cocktail, or, for something sweet, the very berry pancakes.’
Tom’s Kitchen, Chelsea
Tom’s Kitchen is a cool version of the old-school British brasserie. Dishes are based around locally sourced and seasonal ingredients – we think this place particularly excels in classic comfort food with a contemporary twist.
Our team recommend – ‘Turkish eggs or brioche French toast, with an apple, carrot and ginger juice.’
Bourne and Hollingsworth, Clerkenwell
Bourne and Hollingsworth’s greenhouse restaurant – all hothouse plants and vintage furniture – might well be the most characterful place to brunch in London. And the bottomless brunch menu looks (and tastes!) just as good.
Our team recommend – ‘Drop scones with bacon and maple syrup, followed by huevos benedictos or braised beef with crispy potato hash. The bottomless bloody marys are divine!’
