Prosecco and pancakes? Cocktails and cornflakes? Why not, with a bottomless brunch! An all-you-can-eat buffet with a spot of (responsible) day drinking makes for a fun experience to share with family and friends or to celebrate a special occasion such as a hen do. 

Here are some of our top spots to make memories over mimosas and bond over breakfast food on the Isle of Wight…

Slug & Lettuce, Newport

Right in the heart of the Island, Slug and Lettuce is famous for its bottomless brunches. For just £33 per person Sunday to Friday or £35.95 per person on Saturdays, you and your friends can enjoy two hours of unlimited drinks with a dish from the wide-ranging brunch menu featuring dishes such as the Doughnut & Waffle Stack or the tasty Mexican Brunch. Book your place at the ‘Brunch of the Season’ with different themes for different times of the year for even more fun.

Artisan Bar & Grill, Ryde

Head to bustling Union Street in Ryde and enjoy a one-hour bottomless brunch with tasty small plates and some of the finest cocktails. Inside, you will find an elegant interior with stylish reclaimed materials – wood salvaged from Ryde Pier, doors from a now-demolished Seaview chemist and floorboards saved from other period properties on the Island. Add in a menu featuring locally sourced ingredients and a mixologist on hand making delicious cocktails, and you’ve got yourself a happy hour!

The Crab, Shanklin

Set in the beautiful Old Village in Shanklin, you can have a dish from the menu whilst enjoying bottomless drinks for an hour and a half. The drinks include Prosecco and that Italian favourite - Aperol Spritz. After you have enjoyed your fill, there are plenty more pubs and bars in the Old Village or you can even catch a show at the nearby Shanklin Theatre.

Wyld, Newport

Claiming to be one of the most Instagrammable places on the Island, Wyld definitely delivers the fun. Choose from three brunch options; Bottomless Cocktails, Bottomless Fizz or Bottomless Boozeless (the one without a hangover!) and then gather your squad and get the party started as you enjoy unlimited drinks and two delicious small plats from the menu. All finishing by 8pm, you can then decide whether to call it an early night, or continue the party. 

Sandown Boulevard

You know it's summer when Sandown Boulevard opens up. A great place to grab your mates and spend a couple of hours soaking up the sunshine and party atmosphere, especially with one of the bottomless brunches. Available every Saturday from 1pm and £30 per head, you can pick what food you would like from one of the many street food vendors (there’s pizza, burgers, waffles shawarma and more), then top it all off with unlimited drinks for the next two hours. Perfect.

On the Rocks, Yarmouth

Definitely one to book in your diaries as they don’t run all the time, an On the Rocks bottomless brunch features non-stop live music from 11am and includes a tasty brunch menu (think shakshuka or waffle stacks) and a second pudding course for the sweet-toothed. The drinks include mimosas and peach bellinis, as well as soft drinks, making it the perfect place for a fun get-together.

The Wellington, Ventnor

With only four each summer, these bottomless brunches sell out fast. Experience the ultimate Ibiza vibes at The Wellington’s Day Party. Immerse yourself in three hours of iconic Ibiza anthems spun by DJ Omar. Embrace the sun-kissed atmosphere and dress in your chicest summer holiday attire while enjoying endless Prosecco or Beer and even shots for the best-dressed. Probably best not to make plans for afterwards!
