Lockdown may have paused normal life, but it will never stop us brunching. While bars, restaurants and pubs may be closed for now, we can still tuck into the nation’s favourite meal from the comfort of home. Across the country, these food heroes are delivering the good stuff to keep our spirits high when the weekend rolls around. From stacks of chicken and waffles to towering brekkie burgers, full English fry-ups and the UK’s first stay-home brunch, these brunch deliveries are calling for you to kick back and pop some bottles.
There’s no better way to spend a bank holiday weekend than with a boozy brunch, right? RIGHT. We can’t all head down to our fave brunch spots for now, but we can log on to The Big Brunch Lock-In. The first of its kind in the UK, this epic £25 event features premium cocktails delivered to your door (think espresso martinis and berry mojitos, recipe cards from some of the country’s best restaurants, exclusive discounts and giveaways, and a 90-minute live DJ set from Benny Blanco to soundtrack. See you there.
If you’re craving a meat feast to kick-start the weekend, look no further than Mac & Wild. Their enviable breakfast box has enough to go halfsies with parents, housemates, or to just keep to yourself (it might just take a while to get through). Made up of Lorne sausages, venison sausages, beef sausages, smoked back bacon, sliced haggis, white pudding and black pudding, this epic care package really provides the breakfast of champions.
Biff’s Jack Shack are delivering hearty plant-based brekkies from their home in Dalston via Hop Drop (BrewDog’s delivery app). Lucky folks in the area will be able to gorge on vegan waffles loaded with fresh fruit, syrup and gelato, mouthwatering grilled cheese toasties and the classic ‘Lumberjack’ breakfast burger with jackfruit, faux-bacon, truffled sausages, hash brown and beer-laced cheese. Vegan brunch never looked so good…
The Breakfast Club is pretty much a go-to for all things brunch in London. To sweeten the deal? Their menu is all-day so you can tuck into piles of pancakes, stacks of chicken and waffles, and eggs any way possible, whenever you fancy. Pair all of this with a bucket of Camden beer and some top tunes through the hi-fi, and bam… you’ve got the quintessential bottomless brunch set-up in your living room.
This really is an eggcellent way to celebrate the weekend. Whether you’re curing a hangover from your Zoom pub quizzing (not that we’re talking from experience) or just craving a hearty breakfast bun, this Insta-famous restaurant is sure to deliver. Chomp away on signature creations such as the bacon, egg and cheese sarnie, the ‘Fairfax’ with scrambled egg and chives, and the sausage, egg and cheese that could rival any McMuffin.
Looking to get your fried chicken fix? Well, if you live in Manchester you are one lucky clucker as Yard and Coop are still offering their weekend brunch menu for collection and delivery, just with a smaller menu. Keep it classic with the O.G combo of thighs, fries and bourbon BBQ sauce, or spice things up with the katsu burger and finish with the dirty bird classic, loaded fries with cheese, chicken, crispy bacon and lashings of signature sauces.
Now this brunch is absurd(ly good). If you’re lucky enough to live in Glasgow, you can get Absurd Bird to drop their deliciously indulgent buttermilk fried chicken straight to your door. Check out their quirky takes on chicken and waffles, from the maple syrup and gravy breakfast special to the ‘Absurd Benedict’ with eggs and hollandaise. We’re particularly keen on the Scottish breakfast slider with barbecue beans, bacon, fried egg and brown sauce.
