Brunch in Brighton is served between 10am and 2pm. Brighton coffee shops open earlier between 7am and 8am where breakfast could be served. You may also like to look at our Brighton and Hove lunch guide as this overlaps with brunch. Guy Beringer created the idea of brunch in 1895. In an article written in a London publication called Hunter’s Weekly titled “Brunch: A Plea,” there is a suggestion for a different meal time to accommodate those enjoying a Saturday night. Brunch would be for those who cannot make it up in time for breakfast because of their late night social engagements.

What is a bottomless brunch? It is a relatively new concept where one can enjoy a brunch at a set price where you have a number of set courses with free flowing, or unlimited alcohol. There is usually a time limit allocated to a bottomless brunch and alcohol options could be sparkling wine, beer, or cocktails. This type of brunch is popular for birthdays, special occasions, a friends get together or a hen do.  The bottomless brunch concept is popular in Brighton.
