Top tips to get the most out of your brunch  

With any offer, it comes with some conditions, so read the T’s & C’s first to be clear about what is and is not included in the deal to avoid disappointment.

Drink in moderation! Water is key; stay hydrated and don’t make major plans for the rest of the day. Set a water alarm on your phone to remind you to guzzle some down regularly.

Be punctual; every minute is precious, and you don’t want to let the team down. Order food early to avoid drinking on an empty stomach.
