South Bank's Best Brunch Spots

South Bank's Best Brunch Spots

What better way to kick off the weekend that with brunch on the South Bank? Book tickets for an early show and enjoy bottomless prosecco and cocktails pre-theatre, or shake off the working week with a relaxed brunch feast complete with healthy juices, great coffee or, if you need to turbo-charge the weekend, a 'breakfast negroni' always goes down a treat.

Here's a look at some of South Bank's favourite places to book for brunch.


  • Saxy Brunch at Skylon

    Join Skylon in their stunning Royal Festival Hall location for the Saxy Brunch, every Saturday from 29 October – 17 December 2022. There's free-flowing Prosecco, a live saxophonist and DJs playing all afternoon from 12pm–4pm in the restaurant. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame the most fantastic riverside views and of course the location is ideal if you are catching a performance later in the day.

    A perfect weekend destination for a fun and funky brunch with delicious food and stunning views of the Thames. Enjoy two or three courses for £29.50/£35 with the option to add on free-flowing fizz or red wine for £21 per person.

  • Bottomless brunch at Marsha

    Go bottomless at Marsha on either beer, Mimosa, Bloody Mary or Elderflower Spritz every Saturday and Sunday between 11am and 5pm for just £25.
