Best Brunch In Newcastle: The Definitive Guide
Brunch in Newcastle has exploded in popularity over the last few years, which means it has become very competitive. Restaurants, cafes, and even bars have been putting together some amazing sumptuous brunches with a new twist – bottomless brunches. That's right! The biggest brunch craze is combining it with unlimited drinks. And most of the time, it is with endless prosecco.
But if you enjoy brunch without alcohol, don't worry. The bottomless brunches also have virgin cocktails and soft drink options. While the bottomless brunch in Newcastle is a very popular choice, there are still quite a few restaurants that serve just brunch. So if you are looking for a big English breakfast, French toast, or smoked salmon on a bagel, we are going to send you on a brunch journey around the city centre and beyond.
But before you set on this culinary journey, don't forget to store your luggage or large bags at one of our safe and convenient Newcastle suitcase storage locations. Now let's look at where to find the best bottomless brunch in Newcastle.
Slug & Lettuce
Recently joining the bottomless brunch culture, the Slug & Lettuce have done it right. There is a set brunch menu to choose from, but you can upgrade and get more choices like their Pornstar pancakes or brunch burger. The staff here will make sure your glass is never empty, refilling it for the two hours you are there.
Some of the bottomless brunch drinks include Prosecco, Mimosas, and Bloody Marys. If you are not a big drinker you can get Virgin Marys or a selection of soft drinks. Or you can upgrade again and dive into their famous Pornstar Martinis. Vegan and vegetarian options are also available.

Dining outside inside is what you get at this cool and hip restaurant that has an actual tree in the center and a glass-domed ceiling. But the Botanist in Monument Mall is not all visual flash, the food is outstanding. The bottomless brunch is served only on Saturday and Sunday which is a shame as this truly might be the best bottomless brunch in Newcastle.
The menu is very extensive. From smashed avocado, poached eggs, breakfast burger and homemade buttermilk pancakes, it is hard to decide where to start. For the drink selection, they offer prosecco, bellinis, sangria, and four different types of Bloody Marys. There is so much to choose from but you will have to make up your mind fairly quickly as the bottomless brunch lasts only 90 minutes.
