These cities have been ranked the best bottomless brunch in the UK (and London didn’t make the cut)

The first bank holiday where we’re allowed to socialise indoors is fast approaching, and we could not be more ready. If there’s one thing that bank holiday weekends were made for in particular, it’s bottomless brunches. You don’t have to worry about having one too many unlimited refills as you get an extra day to recover – ideal!

But with so many cafes, restaurants and bars jumping on the bottomless brunch bandwagon, it can be difficult to know where to go and not be disappointed. Helpfully, drinks retailer The Bottle Club analysed TripAdvisor data to find out where the best bottomless brunch locations are across the UK.

Each city was ranked for its brunches based on a variety of factors, such as availability of vegan and vegetarian options, accessibility and offerings of live music. Out of 15 of the UK’s biggest cities, Cardiff was deemed the best for brunch, while London came in at the very bottom of the ranks.

The Bottle Club team also crunched the numbers to find out which city scored best for each amenity. They found Bristol offered the best variety of vegan brunch spots and also came up top for accessible locations. Edinburgh has the most dog-friendly brunch places and vegetarian options.

But just because a city as a whole is delivering the best eggs benedict, avo toast and pancake stacks, where exactly should you go for a guaranteed brilliant brunch?

The Bottle Club looked at the most highly-rated independent bottomless brunch spots in each of the listed cities, scoring them on key factors like the number of five-star reviews they’d received, price, how long you can drink for, Instagram-ability and the number of menu items.

Without further ado, this is where to get a booking in ASAP…
