Brunch culture, or at least brunches of the free flowing alcohol variety is one of my favourite things when visiting places like London or New York. When it comes to Newcastle there were only one or two places I could think of straight away off the top of my head, but it turns out there are a couple more than that when you start to research. Since I originally wrote this post back in January, it turns out there’s more than I originally thought, with a few new ones opening. So here’s where you can go for bottomless brunch in Newcastle.
Post updated August 2020.
Liquid Brunch at Newcastle Malmaison
I haven’t experienced this at the Newcastle Mal, but I have at the one in Manchester and it’s basically the same thing. For £29.99 per person, you get a two hour sitting at a time of your choice between 12pm — 3pm. You can choose one main from the brunch menu, and it comes with two hours of unlimited refills of either Prosecco or Heineken.
It looks like they do different food menus depending on the season, but there are a range of egg dishes, full English, steak frites and a couple of different burger options. We did it in Manchester before going to Parklife festival, as a way to have a few drinks and some food before the much more expensive, and not as nice options that would be on offer in the festival itself.
The food was really nice, and the staff kept us topped up for the full two hours. I think if you’re going to an event it’s a great way to get started, but even if you’re not the Newcastle Malmaison is in such a lovely spot on the Quayside that it’s a perfect way to spend your early Saturday afternoon with friends, followed by some more drinks further along the river.
Weekend Brunch at Eden
One of the newer bars in Newcastle, in the spot that used to be Tiger Tiger right by The Gate, Eden offers a Weekend Bottomless Brunch option. Choose from the brunch menu which has everything from sausage or bacon sarnies, crumpets, pancakes and various egg options, with either free flowing Prosecco or Bellini’s to sip while you eat.
There is the ever popular avocado on toast, a full English option and a vegan full English option to, so they’re catering for the masses. It’s £25 per person, for two hours, in the beautiful botanical surroundings of the restaurant and bar.
I enjoyed a gifted experience here over my birthday in September, and very much enjoyed it. There was a big hen do group in early but it didn’t affect the service we received, and our waiter at the time had no idea I was there for a blog review so hats off to him. I know the picky police sometimes pipe up over this type of thing so I can safely say that the service was genuine.
Bar 28 Prosecco Brunch, Newcastle
I remember when this first came out you couldn’t get booked for weeks, and it’s still popular today with bookings definitely required. Available on both Saturdays and Sundays for two hour sittings between 12-5pm, as well as free flowing prosecco for the duration of your booking you can choose from El Nido charcuterie or cheese selections, a mixture of the two, or the famous No. Twenty Ate burger.
I really like this bar for drinks, it has a great atmosphere, but I’ve never been for brunch and I really need to. The cost is £26.50 per person.
Jam Jar Bottomless Brunch, Jesmond
I really want to try this one, I love Jam Jar on Osbourne Road and hardly ever get to go anymore but this sounds great. For £26 per person you can choose from bottomless Bloody Mary’s or Mimosa Belini’s, so proper brunch drinks, or if you prefer no alcohol (be a bit weird if you got this far into this post and wouldn’t want alcohol…) there are coffee, tea, orange juice, coke or ginger beer as alternative options.
For food theres a choice of eggs benedict or eggs royale, a ‘full Jesmond’, pancakes, avocado on toast, or or pulled pork on toast. There are some different choices here to most and the full menu can be found here.
You get two hours per sitting and everyone on the table has to be having the bottomless brunch option. Timings are between 10am – 7pm on Saturdays, or between 12pm – 5pm on Sundays.
Update: Since I wrote this post I have been to Jam Jar for brunch one Saturday. I absolutely loved it! You can read my full post on Jam Jar bottomless brunch here.
Las Iguanas Bottomless Brunch – Grey Street or the Quayside
I am undecided on what I think of this one, because I really love Mexican food but I don’t always have the best experience of Las Iguanas as it’s very ‘chainy’. If it sounds like something you’d enjoy then you get a starter and a main for your food, alongside bottomless choices of prosecco or beer, but for an extra £5 you can upgrade your drinks to their Mojitos or Caipirinhas.
It’s slightly pricier which I’m assuming is down to the two courses, but on Saturdays for two hours between 11am-1pm it’s £29.95, or Fridays and Sundays between 11-3pm it’s £24.95. If you choose to add on the cocktails option this then bumps the price up to £34.95 on Saturdays and £29.95 on Fridays and Sundays.
So it’s not the cheapest one, but the menu is pretty good especially if you love Mexican food. There are a full range of starters and plenty mains to choose from.
Saint Vincent Bottomless Brunch, Quayside
I LOVE this place, and have really enjoyed brunch here a number of times, so I really like the fact they’ve now added a bottomless option. It’s not all inclusive in the price though, basically you can choose unlimited Prosecco, Bloody Mary’s, Mimosa’s or Bellini’s at a set cost of £20, when you’re ordering a main off their brunch menu.
I’ve enjoyed a number of different breakfasts here and the food is really good, if you’re after a Sunday fun day on the quayside then definitely go for this one. It’s available for two hour tables between 10am – 3pm.
I’ll definitely be doing this one this year, already planning when I can go. Think I’ll aim for one of the few free weekends I have until about August.
The Hudson, Newcastle
The Hudson bottomless brunch includes either pancakes with toffee sauce, or eggs any way you like from their extensive egg menu, with bottomless Prosecco for the 90 minutes you get your table. You can book for every Saturday, at 11am, 11:30am, 12pm or 12:30pm. It costs £24.95 per person and a £10 pp deposit needs to be paid at booking.
I’ve not had the breakfasts or brunch from the Hudson, but I have had dinner there and it was lovely, as were the cocktails. It’s a really nice bar actually in a good location close to Central Station. To book call on 0191 247 4044.
Alchemist Boundless Brunch
This one looks relatively new to Newcastle, as it definitely wasn’t available when I first wrote this post. It’s called the Boundless Brunch, and works a bit different. You can book a table for an hour and a half between 10am-2pm, and for £25 you choose three cocktails and a brunch dish. There’s pancakes, breakfast buns, a full Alchemist and lots more on the menu, and cocktails include the likes of Aperol Spritz, Grapefruit Spritz and a peachy looking vodka affair.
For an extra £10, which takes the price up to £35 you can make your drinks unlimited. I think this would be beneficial depending on how much you drink if it’s worth it. Take a look at the full menu and how to book online here.
Slug & Lettuce Bottomless Brunch
The Slug and Lettuce do a bottomless brunch but unlike others they do it daily, not just at weekends. For £25 per person at both locations Central and the Quayside, you get a dish off their brunch menu and a choice of unlimited drinks including Mimosas, Bloody Mary’s, Aperol Spritz, or Prosecco. You can book a table to start between 12pm and 2pm, and even upgrade your food for £3 to a dish off the main menu.
Full details and online booking here.
On Saturday’s and Sunday’s Revolution offer a bottomless brunch, and it’s a bit complicated to describe. Basically there are a few different sittings, each one is a different price depending on the time you go for, with them getting more expensive as the day goes on. They start at £20, and go up to £30 per person.
You get one brunch dish, and unlimited drinks from the set brunch drinks menu which includes a number of cocktails, Heineken and Prosecco. There’s also an upgraded drinks option for £10, but everyone at the table needs to upgrade, and an upgraded food menu for an extra £2.50.
I’ve not ate off the brunch menu, but I have had their Bloody Mary’s which were pretty good.
Full details and booking can be done online here.
Some appeal a lot more to me than others, Saint Vincent particularly does as I do enjoy a Sunday in that part of town. As we all know, bottomless brunches can be pretty lethal, so drink responsibly and don’t forget to take Monday off if you choose to go on a Sunday!
