Ma’Plucker’s Bird & Bubbles
Don’t expect any smashed avocado or Eggs Royale at this alternative brunch offering. Ma’Plucker specialises in the tastiest chicken this side of the Deep South, serving up scrumptious chicken, either rotisseried, pulled and buttermilked, or done 3-ways, with a hefty side of sass and soul. Fly over to Ma’Plucker’s and roost yourself for a couple of hours while you enjoy unlimited whole chicken, fries, and a bottomless flow of prosecco. Your chicken comes with two bases and two sauces, and they even thrown in mini doughnuts to round your taste buds off after your feast. Do yourself a favour and pluck a place soon at Ma’Plucker for a finger-licking good brunch.
Bring Backstreet back with this bottomless 90s brunch, a themed daytime party brunch that pays tribute to all things great about this decade.

So tout your tie-dye, don your double denim and join the dopest brunch London has to offer.
Drink, Shop & Do’s Bottomless Brunch
Eclectic café and craft-event haven Drink, Shop & Do is known for their quirky evening events, including booze-fuelled piñata-making classes, Lego-robot evenings, and their most famous night, Lionel Rich Tea, an evening spent rendering Lionel Ritchie’s face onto a Rich Tea biscuit with icing.

It’s what Sundays were meant for.
