Be it unlimited, bottomless or never-ending, eating out in Leeds just got better…
The unlimited brunch has arrived in Leeds, with a host of venues jumping on the bandwagon, giving the mid-morning meal their own special twist. So whether you fancy meaty Brazilian eats, fresh street food or a creative take on a classic, there’s sure to be something that’s right up your street. But why restrict yourself to brunch, when you can get lunch and dinner too…
Traditional bottomless brunches
If it’s the mid-morning meal you’re after, these traditional bottomless brunches are just the ticket.
From 12pm until 2pm every Saturday, Black Swan are cooking up a bottomless brunch you won’t want to miss – and all for just £25. The drinks are unlimited and you can choose from Yorkshire beer, prosecco and Bloody Marys. But what will you be eating? You’ve got twists on classics – think eggs Benedict with ‘nduja sausage and chorizo or a black pudding potato cake with fried duck egg and caper butter. But if you want something a little more traditional, you can get a stack of pancakes or a proper bacon sarnie. The rules? It’s one drink at a time and you’ve got 90 minutes to get your fill.
Black Swan, 37 Call Lane, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 7BT.
Next up is Shears Yard. Their bottomless brunch gives you one dish from the menu with unlimited drinks. The food menu will see you tucking into the likes of smoked haddock, leek & potato Cullen skink, caviar crème fraiche and French baguette, while the drinks menu offers up Amstel, along with their current cask ale, Serenello prosecco and specially selected cocktails, like the English 75. It runs from 11am to 2.30pm every Saturday and costs £25 a person, but you only have the table for 90 minutes and you can only have one drink at a time.
Shears Yard, 11-15 Wharf Street, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS2 7EH.
Manahatta have joined the bottomless brunch brigade with a rather tempting offer that will set you back just £22.95 per person – but only at their Merrion Street home. You’ll get your pick of their brunch menu, which includes a full English and three different takes on eggs – or you can upgrade to one of their Uptown options for an extra £5, adding the likes of The Broadway burger and Steak and Eggs into the mix. To wash it down, you’ll have unlimited prosecco, Aperol Spritz, Bloody Marys and Coors. There’s a but… you can only one drink at a time, the whole table has to order from the brunch menu and you only get the table for 90 minutes. It’s available from 11am to 3pm, Saturday and Sunday.
Manahatta, 11 Merrion Street, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 6PG.
The Lost & Found
The Lost & Found offer a Bottomless Prosecco Brunch every weekend from 11am to 2pm and it’s a little bit different to the others. Just buy a starter and a main from the brunch menu – it’s not a set price, each dish is individually priced, but you could tuck into brown butter pancakes with banana, hazelnuts and chocolate sauce before delving into a Josper grilled 5oz rump steak with skinny fries and a fried egg. Once you’ve chosen your food, make your brunch bottomless with unlimited mimosas, Bellini’s or prosecco for £15 extra. There are two rules to this brunch, you’ll have to book ahead and you’ll only get the table for two hours.
The Lost & Found, 12 Greek Street, Leeds LS1 5RU.

For £19.95, you can choose from a range of Tex-Mex dishes, including Pulled Pork Enchiladas, Mexican Chicken Salad and The Pit Mac ‘n’ Cheese – or if you’d prefer, upgrade to their Mighty Menu for an extra £5 to indulge in their Ultimate Bacon Cheese Burger or Cracking Mexican Half Chicken. Wash it down with unlimited prosecco, Coors or Bloody Marys, with one drink at a time for a 90 minute sitting. Make sure you book in advance for this one, they don’t do drop-ins.
