The bottomless brunch trend has become an established part of Southampton student life and its popularity shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. There are a whole host of venues to try out for your bottomless brunch Southampton style. Seen as the most fun meal of the week, brunch’s profile has been boosted enormously by the introduction of the ‘bottomless’ element, raising the game by adding alcohol to the concept, inspired by the trend in Manhattan.

Check out our list below of some of our favourite spots for brunch ideally located near to your student accommodation in Southampton.

Brunch beginnings

The concept of brunch was invented by English author Guy Beringer, inspired by his own hangover. He wrote an essay titled “Brunch: A Plea” in 1895 to assist fellow Sunday morning hangover sufferers. “Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting,” he wrote. “It is talk compelling. It puts you in a good temper, it makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings, it sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week.”

Where we recommend

How to negotiate a successful bottomless brunch 

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 imbibe some H20 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.

Read the T’s & C’s first to be clear about what is and is not included in the deal to avoid disappointment.
