Introduction to Nottingham’s Boozy Brunches
Come Saturday morning, the top of any self-respecting student’s to-do list should be the best meal of the weekend – brunch. Eggs, smashed avo on toast, breakfast bowls, buttermilk pancakes, waffles, smoothies and coffee, the list goes on! One thing for certain, however, is that brunch has something for everyone – as well as those never-ending glasses of prosecco. Living in student accommodation in Nottingham is an experience to remember and the city has so much to offer. The vibrant food scene and outstanding selection of brunch spots are just one more reason why student’s love the city so much.
When you choose to stay at our Nova or Clarendon Street accommodation, you can be sure that you benefit from a city centre location that allows you to make the most of the amazing dining experiences this city has to offer. With a city as vibrant, social, and exciting as Nottingham, you really don’t want to miss out! So, take a break from studying and unwind with a few (and maybe a few more) glasses of bubbly with your pals.
You won’t be stuck for choices, but to narrow the search down a little, we’ve picked out our top five brunch spots so you don’t need to do the work – all you have to do is show up, grab a glass and get brunching.
Brewhouse and Kitchen
We start our best bottomless brunch tour at Brewhouse and Kitchen, a lively pub and microbrewery offering a selection of brunch dishes that are sure to get the tastebuds tingling. Hungry students can expect to chow down on a full English breakfast – including a vegetarian option – or a special brunch burger, with half a bottle of prosecco for just £16! The brunch burger is a menu highlight consisting of a beef brisket & steak patty topped with cheese, bacon, mushrooms, and an egg all tucked into a “croll” (croissant and roll combination!) served with a hash brown – what more could a hungover student ask for! That’s not all this great pub has to offer though. If you’re visiting during the week, Brewhouse and Kitchen have a variety of different weekday activities, including Burger Mondays, Wings Wednesdays, and Movie nights. You can even take part in special masterclass sessions including gin, beer, or brewing events, perfect for a fun day out or birthday plans!
