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 Argentinian 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.
Shears Yard’s bottomless brunch gives you one dish from the menu with unlimited drinks. You will tuck into the likes of Sykes House Farm pork & leek sausages, 60c egg, French style peas with lettuce & bacon, 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 Manahatta chicken into the mix. To wash it down, you’ll have the option of unlimited prosecco, Aperol Spritz, Bloody Marys or Coors. There’s a but… you can only have 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.

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 can 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, Bellinis 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.
