Whether you’re local or are looking for a weekend destination, Sheffield is a great place for a spot of brunch – and if you are looking for a great bottomless brunch in Sheffield then you will be spoilt for choice.
This city has recently ranked number two in Time Out’s Best City Breaks in Europe for 2023 after Marseille in France – so why not see what the UK’s greenest city has to offer for brunch.
I scoured the city for the best bottomless brunch spots to present them in this article – it’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it!
Independent Cafes and Restaurants For Bottomless Brunches
Unlike many UK city centres that are awash with chain restaurants and cafes, Sheffield is home to a whole host of independent ventures, many of which offer bottomless brunches.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with a chain restaurant bottomless brunch (I enjoy many of them!) but sometimes you want something a little unique.
The following independent establishments offer the finest of bottomless brunches in Sheffield:
Deckards at Barrowboy
453 Abbeydale Road, S7 1FS
Situated outside of the city centre in Nether Edge, Barrowboy gained its name from the venue’s 100-year history as a grocery store. The bar’s owners envisaged creating the bar they themselves wanted to go to: an establishment for the neighbourhood and the ‘local’ that they wanted.
Barrowboy serves award-winning food supplied by Deckards who pair things like bao buns with Bloody Marys and mimosas. There are plenty of options for both vegans and vegetarians, including cactus tacos, which I guarantee you won’t have tried elsewhere!
For £29.50 you get two tacos or bao buns of your choice, nachos or fries, and bottomless drinks for 90 minutes. You can choose from a paloma (tequila, lime and grapefruit), sangria, a mimosa, bucks fizz, gin cooler and prosecco. If you’d like to drink Asahi Japanese Dry Lager, you can pay a £2.50 supplement.
The bottomless brunch is served on weekends between 12 pm and 4 pm and booking is essential.
I thoroughly enjoyed my brunch at Barrowboy. If you’re visiting Sheffield for a weekend and don’t have a car, it’s a short taxi ride away.
If you’re coming by car, it’s not the easiest place to find parking for, but there is some street parking available. Overall, Barrowboy was tasty and fun but brunch here is more like a standalone activity rather than one that leads into further exploration of the area.
Picture House Social
383 Abbeydale Road, S7 1FS
Just down the road from Barrowboy is the former Abbeydale Picture House. This venue is home to some great events but every Saturday and Sunday between 12 pm and 4 pm, you can experience a bottomless brunch in Sheffield like no other.
Here, you can enjoy your food and drinks while listening to disco tracks by the resident DJs Johnny and Dan. The Picture House itself is a wonderful venue. If you don’t want to limit yourself just to its bottomless offering, it has a mini cinema, a ‘shuffle shack,’ a ping pong room and an outside terrace.
As its website states, it’s somewhat of a ‘Crystal Maze for hipsters’, and I totally agree.
For £34.95 per person, you get 90 minutes of unlimited prosecco, espresso martini, strawberry daiquiri, paloma, house larger, and soft drinks. You also get a starter, brunch and side included.
I really liked the menu here for its real ‘brunch’ feel. You can choose from your more typical breakfast foods like eggs benedict on toast or a veggie breakfast bun to breakfast-style pizzas. Each dish also comes with a side of fries, which you can upgrade to loaded fries for £3.50. The starter was a little strange, though not unpleasant: lemon-glazed doughballs dusted with powdered sugar!
Though one of the pricier bottomless brunches I tried, the Picture House Social brunch felt more like an experience than a casual meal with friends. The disco vibes were just what I needed on a cold Saturday afternoon in January and the backdrop of the 1920s building was the icing on the cake.
111 Arundel Street, Sheffield, S1 2NT
Offering a ‘taste of Yorkshire’, Silversmiths is the ideal central location for a bottomless brunch in Sheffield. Situated close to the train station and Sheffield’s famous Crucible and Lyceum Theatre, Silversmiths is a relaxed bottomless brunch experience with a slight ‘fine dining’ feel.
Their bottomless brunch is available each Saturday between 12 pm and 3 pm. Diners get to choose from a fine selection of dishes with locally sourced ingredients while enjoying 90 minutes of bottomless drinks for £35.
The menu offers a range of brunch items, including smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, ham hock benedict, and chorizo and new potato hash.
Though vegetarians are somewhat limited in choice, the avocado and feta bagel was exquisite. The drinks on offer are prosecco by the glass, Amstel, pornstar martini, merry berry or cosmopolitan cocktails. You can mix and match your drinks and soft drinks are available too.
Booking is essential here and a deposit of £10 per person is also required.
Silversmiths is in a quieter part of the city centre but still within walking distance to the main central areas. The bottomless brunch here was delicious and the atmosphere was great. A wider selection of vegetarian options would have been welcome, but what we did have was tasty.
V |OR| V
Wharncliffe Works, Cornish Street, Kelham Island, S6 3FB
Since Silversmiths came up a little short on the vegetarian and vegan front, we thought we’d try V |OR| V out for size. V |OR| V (vegetarian, organic, vegan) was the first fully meat-free restaurant with a license in the city.
As soon as we arrived at the restaurant, we were immediately impressed with its presentation. It had a relaxing, chilled vibe thanks to its wooden fixtures and open brickwork, which fit in really nicely with the industrial roots of the Kelham Island area.
The dishes are cooked over open flames and contained locally sourced organic ingredients. Just because all of the dishes are meat-free, doesn’t mean meat lovers will be turned off, the dishes available are interesting and enough to change anyone’s mind about the tastiness of vegetarian and vegan food!
Options include wild Peak District mushrooms on toasted rye, Sri Lankan broccoli kuttu roti stir fry, and a full vegetarian or vegan English. They also have gluten-free options.
The bottomless brunch costs £30 (+ £3 if you choose the full English) and is served between 12 pm and 3 pm. The service lasts 90 minutes and you can choose from bottomless prosecco, fresh fruit bellini, house wine, Peroni, or guest ale. All of the drinks are vegan too.
Once you’ve finished your brunch, Kelham Island is a great place to explore. The area has expanded massively in the last decade and has gone from being home to just two real ale pubs to being a trendy and popular destination for people in search of a good meal and a good time.
The most difficult decision about coming here was choosing what to eat. All of the available options were mouth-wateringly good! The fresh coriander cornbread was delicious as was the fresh fruit bellini. We both thoroughly enjoyed our brunch at V |OR| V.
138 West Street, Sheffield City Centre, Sheffield S1 4ES
If you fancy a different style brunch, FirePit Rocks is an unusual take on the typical theme. In this independent venue, you’ll experience brunch in an American-style sports bar that has daily live sport, an arcade and gaming booths for hire.
FirePit Rocks is also reasonably priced at just £25 per person for brunch and 90 minutes of bottomless drinks. Unlike most other venues, their bottomless brunch is also available on Mondays and Fridays as well as on weekends, though on those weekdays it’s more like a dinner than a brunch as it’s available between 4 pm and 8 pm.
At the weekends, though, you can take advantage of the offer from 12 pm to 7 pm. If you choose a late brunch, you’re also in a prime location for some of Sheffield’s best nightlife.
The food options include your usual brunch-style foods like breakfast wraps, waffles, eggs benedict and smashed avocado on toast. We tried the garlic mushrooms on ciabatta and it was delicious!
For drinks, you’ve got a choice of pornstar martini, fired up espresso martini, mojito, lady liberty, sours cocktail, drumstick, Cali sunrise, prosecco or house lager. For the price, we were impressed with the range of drinks on offer. In some bottomless brunch places, you pay supplements for the likes of pornstar martinis and espresso martinis.
The food offering, though nothing unique, was absolutely delicious and the range of drinks was pleasing. For £25, we think this bottomless brunch was good value for money and the service was great too.
Forum Kitchen & Bar
127-129 Devonshire Street, Sheffield, S3 7SB
The Forum is a great venue for all sorts of meetings and outings. As well as offering bottomless brunch, they have lots of great deals throughout the week.
Located right in the heart of Sheffield, near the vibrant Devonshire Green, Forum has been around for over two decades 7 days a week. It’s also a child and dog-friendly venue during the day too.
The Forum bottomless brunch menu costs £30 per person and is available between 12 pm and 2 pm on Saturdays, which is a little restrictive compared to other venues. Included in the price is one food item and unlimited prosecco, Sheffield dry gin and mixers, Corona, soft drinks or tea and coffee for 90 minutes.
Menu items include burgers, British burritos, sourdough toast, pizza, nachos and salad. Tables must be booked in advance.
Forum has a strong reputation for its food and we weren’t disappointed. We often like to try out the menu item that’s the most unique for a brunch and so this time, we went for the British burrito – a burrito containing shredded belly pork, traditional stuffing, greens, smashed potatoes and homemade gravy.
We weren’t disappointed! But at almost 2000 calories without including the drinks, it’s certainly not something you’ll want to have every day!
We thoroughly enjoyed our Forum bottomless brunch and the service was excellent too. Being able to bring dogs into the venue might sway it for some customers (or put others off!) but we enjoyed seeing a furry friend or two!
Cubana Tapas Bar
Unit 4, Leopold Square, Sheffield S1 2JG
Cubana is the place to go in Sheffield if you’re wanting a Latin experience in the middle of a British city. It’s not only a place to enjoy food, there’s live music, dancing, and more. They even teach a number of different dances throughout the week.
The Cubana bottomless brunch is offered Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning and afternoon. Unlike other establishments, Cubana offers different prices and packages depending on the time of visit and the drinks you’d like.
Prices start from £28.50 per person during sitting 1 (11:30 am to 1:15 pm) up to £46.50 per person during sitting 3 and 4 with deluxe drinks and live music.
As well as unlimited drinks for 1 hour and 45 minutes, guests can choose two dishes from the menu. There are both hot and cold dishes available and lots of choice for vegans, vegetarians and those on a gluten-free diet.
Our favourite was berenjenas al horno, which was oven-baked aubergines in a tomato and parmesan sauce. Sides and desserts are not included in the brunch package but are available to order alongside.
If you book your brunch on Saturday, why not have a salsa and bachata lesson (beginners is from 12:30 pm until 1:30 pm). If you have brunch on a Sunday, you’ve got Argentine tango lessons for beginners from 2:30 pm until 3:45 pm!
Cubana is fun! It’s a bottomless brunch experience like no other. We loved the atmosphere, the original food available and the drinks. We chose the deluxe package with live music and it was a real treat.
46 Howard Street, Sheffield, S1 2LX
Just uphill from Sheffield train station is a delightful little venue on Howard Street appropriately named HowSt.
This independent establishment has been on the scene for over a decade and offers fantastic food and drinks. The bottomless brunch is available on Saturday and Sunday. For £22.50, you can enjoy 1.5 hours of unlimited wine or lager and a meal of your choice. For an extra £5, you can enjoy cocktails and prosecco with your meal.
Food options include the full meaty English, Andy Hash (a skillet pan with potatoes, peppers, mushrooms and tomatoes topped with a fried egg and mozzarella and served with bread), ciabatta toasties and loaded bagels.
We recommend the Ole. This was like something we’d never had anywhere else on our search for the best bottomless brunch in Sheffield and included Spanish chorizo, beans and fried egg.
We love HowSt and had been many times before but this was our first time trying the bottomless brunch. We highly recommend the Ole. This was like something we’d never had anywhere else on our search for the best bottomless brunch in Sheffield and included Spanish chorizo, beans and fried egg. Divine!
303 Sharrow Vale Road, Sharrow, Sheffield S11 8ZF
Our penultimate independent brunch venue offering bottomless brunch is The Lescar. Located close to the bustling Eccleshall Road, The Lescar offers a great start to your weekend.
You’ll need to book in advance but you’ll have access to unlimited Bloody Marys, prosecco or Camden Hells lager for 90 minutes. Food options include Belgian waffles, a full vegan breakfast, eggs benedict and baked egg shakshuka, which was our favourite.
This atmospheric pub is a relaxed brunch option and at £25, the price is very reasonable.
The Lescar is a good all-rounder. We didn’t think it was anything special but it was atmospheric, offered tasty food and was reasonably priced – and sometimes that’s all you want from your bottomless brunch!
Craft & Dough Kelham Island
1A Kelham Square, Kelham Island, Sheffield S3 8SD
Our final independent eatery offering a great bottomless brunch is Craft & Dough. Another establishment in the up-and-coming Kelham Island, Craft & Dough is known for its delicious artisanal pizza and cocktails.
There are four levels of bottomless brunch on offer here: bronze, silver, gold and platinum. Prices start at £30 for bronze and go up to £40 for the platinum deal.
The Bronze menu is your traditional ‘brunch’ foods like waffles and bacon, pancakes and eggs served with 90 minutes of unlimited prosecco, Aperol spritz, house pilsner, Orchard Thieves cider or mimosas. The Silver menu has the same food offering but drinks are upgraded to include fruit bellinis, flavoured gin and mixers and Estrella.
For the Gold and Platinum deals the food menu changes to pizzas rather than breakfast foods and the drinks make the difference between the two. These deals are available at 1 pm or 3 pm only and must be booked a week in advance.
We went for the Silver package to try out the brunch foods on offer (due to already being quite familiar with Craft & Dough’s pizza offerings). We tried the Crafty breakfast and Nduja hash and both were lovely.
Craft & Dough is widely known for its delicious food and the brunch options we tried didn’t disappoint. Going here for a bottomless brunch is a great start to an afternoon around Kelham Island but the establishment is more casual than others and it felt less of a treat.
The Best Bottomless Brunches in Sheffield – Small Chains
If you’re interested in what else is on offer besides independent restaurants, Sheffield is home to many small chain establishments that might offer just what you’re after. Here are our favourites.
The Lost and Found
515 Eccleshall Road, Broomhall, Sheffield S11 8PY
Sheffield is widely known as a green city – and one that has more trees than people. The Lost & Found is a great example of an establishment that’s brought this greenery indoors too. It’s a real treat to the senses even before you start tasting your food.
Lost & Found is a small chain over six locations in England, ranging from Bristol to Birmingham and up to Leeds. The bottomless brunch has a great range of foods, including lots of vegetarian choices too.
Besides the more typical English breakfasts on offer, there’s also Green Shakshuka, steak and eggs, tiramisu French toast and a cornflake chicken waffle. As you’ll know by now, we like to try the more unusual offerings so we had the tiramisu French toast and cornflake chicken waffle. Both were fantastic!
The range of drinks was also pleasing. You could choose from Aperol Spritz, mimosa, bloody Mary, prosecco, green machine, strawberry and cucumber fizz on non-alcoholic Italian AF Spritz.
The brunch is one of the more expensive we tried at £35 but for the range of drinks, the setting, time limit and the tasty food, we felt it was good value for money. You can book a two-hour time slot between 11 am and 3 pm on Saturdays.
Going out to the Lost & Found felt like a special occasion. The service was excellent and the location was good too as you’re right near Sheffield’s Botanical Gardens to continue the greenery!
67 Division Street, Sheffield S1 4GE
Head out of central Sheffield towards the University and you’ll come across bustling Division Street with Pieminster just as you approach Devonshire Green. If you like pies and bottomless brunches, Pieminister offers the best combination for you!
With the Pieminister bottomless brunch you get a great pie (and heaps of Sheffield’s finest Henderson’s Relish) and 90 minutes of bottomless drinks.
With pies like moo pie as well as mooless moo, there’s plenty of choice for meat eaters and vegetarians and vegans alike. One thing we really wanted to try was the gravy fondue but sadly this wasn’t included in the bottomless brunch!
Great pies, great atmosphere and delightful staff meant we thoroughly enjoyed our unique bottomless brunch at Pieminister. However, they don’t have this deal throughout the winter and so you’ll have to wait until the summer months again to enjoy Pieminister’s take on the bottomless brunch!
Many people turn their noses up at large chain restaurants due to their ‘sameness’. However, large chains do well because they know what people like!
When it comes to bottomless brunches in Sheffield, there are plenty of large-chain options. Here are two of the best ones we tried:
Pitcher & Piano
Unit 1 NUM Building, 18 Holly Street, Sheffield S1 3GT
Pitcher & Piano’s bottomless brunch menu is available at weekends for £34. You can choose any dish from the brunch menu and have unlimited bellinis, mimosas, prosecco, pints of Amstel or Aperol spritz for two hours.
The menu is varied and there are lots of options for vegetarians and vegans too. You can try things like breakfast brioche, brunch burgers or baked shakshuka alongside your typical breakfast items. You’ll pay extra for sides and can even have a strawberry and prosecco lolly as an added extra too.
Pitcher & Piano got things spot on for our large group. The two-hour slot meant things felt relaxed and we had plenty of time to take things slowly.
The restaurant is in a nice, central location too and overlooks Sheffield City Hall. You can book until late so it would be a great warm up to an evening at the Last Laugh Comedy Club just over the road.
Unit 5A & 5B, Leopold Square, Sheffield, S1 2JG
The Botanist doesn’t have your usual chain restaurant feel. The designers of this establishment have got things spot on. It’s almost like stepping into a secret garden.
Located in the bustling Leopold Square and close to the aforementioned Cubana Tapas Bar, The Botanist offers a fantastic bottomless brunch.
In a slightly different format to other venues, The Botanist has a delicious brunch menu with a bottomless drinks option. This means you choose from the menu as normal and then pay £15.95 for 90 minutes of free-flowing drinks to accompany your meal. We really liked this way of doing things!
The food was served quickly and the portions were generous. The Ham Hock Eggs Benedict was our favourite but if you are struggling to choose, you can opt for the Brunch Twist which means you can sample all of the brunch items on one sampling plate!
The Botanist is in a great location and has a great atmosphere. The ivy-wrapped columns, wooden panelling and soft lighting were the perfect antidotes to a bustling city centre full of shoppers – and the food was delicious too.
Sheffield has so many great bottomless brunch options and we weren’t left disappointed at any of the establishments we sampled. Of all of the bottomless brunches we tried, our favourites were the Picture House Social for its cool building and entertainment, Cubana Tapas Bar for its live music, V |OR| V for its quirkiness, and HowSt for its value for money.
We’re only sorry we couldn’t try all of the options available in Sheffield! The ones we haven’t tried yet include The Graduate, Turtle Bay, Walkabout, Slug & Lettuce, Brows, Las Iguanas, All Bar One and more. Do let us know your experiences of any of these places!
