Top 5: New Brunch Menus to Try in LondonBy Alicia Grimshaw
Brunch is the best way to end the week in style. And when there’s bottomless bubbles involved, a leisurely breakfast turns into a right ol’ knees up. Here’s 5 new brunch menus we’re loving in London right now:
The Lowdown: The Tapas Room in Peckham has launched its Boozy Bottomless brunch, served on both Saturday and Sunday between 12pm – 5pm. The new bottomless offering includes any three of the delicious brunch tapas (per guest), as well as free-flowing Cava, wine or beer and an extra offer of two Bloody Marys for just a tenner.
Eat and Drink: Split into nibbles, tapas and cured meats and cheeses, the menu is perfect for sharing with pals and family. Nibbles include crowd-pleasers such as Padron peppers and pan con Tomate, whilst the Tapas section features dishes such as the delicious octopus crumpet with piquillo peppers and green apple, and truffled wild mushrooms with quails’ eggs and Pedro Ximenez glaze. For dessert, enjoy churros with chocolate and cinnamon sugar.

The Lowdown: Decimo, The Standard, London’s 10th-floor restaurant has launched brunch for the very first time – and it’s a belter. Sitting alongside its recently launched live music programme, Live on Ten, Decimos offer a Saturday experience like no other, with live music from London’s most exciting up and coming artists, jugs of margarita and a menu of unique brunch dishes drawing on Michelin-starred chef Peter Sanchez-Iglesias’ Spanish heritage.
Eat and Drink: The brunch menu features Decimo classics, such as the signature Spanish Tortilla, alongside a selection of newly-launched Spanish-Mexican brunch dishes, including Huevos a la Flamenca, a typical breakfast dish from Andalucia heightened by Peter’s addition of shoulder of Jamón ibérico, and guacamole served with Decimo’s homemade, hand-pressed tortilla chips.
