Revolution is known for bringing the party to cities across the nation and the same can be said for their bottomless brunches too. Found on The Riverwalk, overlooking Durham Cathedral, Revolution Durham brings a variety of delicious brunch dishes to the table.

Revs serves us all fabulous food that are filled with carb-y goodness, from a classic full English breakfast with fried free-range eggs, crispy bacon, sausages, hash browns and baked beans to an HLN favourite of fried chicken and bacon waffle and loaded hash browns. Or you can upgrade to any burger on the Revs menu for just £2.50.

When it comes to the selection of unlimited drinks, Revs is probably one that serves the most options. We’re talking bottomless cocktails – with Aperol Spritz and bloody Marys, vodka and tonics, beer and fizz and soft drinks for a full hour and a half.

Cosy Club believes that brunch is one of the most important meals of the day, so they’ve brought better things to their table with their famous Boundless Brunch. Home on The Riverwalk, overlooking Durham Cathedral, the restaurant has gorgeous views both inside and out.

What better way to enjoy sipping on your bottomless bubbles than taking in some stunning views whilst catching up with your friends? And it’s not just free-flowing fizz on offer, treat yourself to 90 minutes of unlimited bloody Marys and mimosas, too.

There’s a great selection of brunch dishes for you to refuel for your day of celebrations, too.

The Library

46 Saddler Street, Durham DH1 3NU

Price: £25.00 per person

When: Served every day from 10am-2pm

The team at The Library open their doors for a boozy brunch EVERY DAY until 2pm. We love it. Here you’ll get 90 mins of endless prosecco or, if prosecco isn’t for you, there are draft beers and even G&T’s.

With 90 minutes of bottomless fizz, you definitely need something to line your stomach. From The Big Breakfast (the name says it all) to sweet-a-bisc waffles (if you have a sweet tooth) and bacon and avo crumpets, enjoy a morning filled with food, fizz and fun that’ll set you up for the rest of the day.

For those of you who are on a budget, The Library is actually one of the cheapest bottomless brunches in Durham – cracking.



Freeman’s Reach, Durham DH1 1SW

Price: £32.50pp

Duration: 90 minutes

When: Served Friday – Sunday

This vibrant riverside eatery and cocktail venue overlooks Durham Castle and Cathedral, making it the perfect backdrop for your next girlie get-together.

Relaxed and social, CoHo is a little pricier than other Durham bottomless brunch venues but, in our opinion, it’s worth every penny for the location alone. Not that the scran is half bad, either; you’ve got all your delicious breakfast staples, like Eggs Benedict, a full English or bacon and maple pancakes, alongside some heartier options to choose from – like crispy toasties and fresh sandwiches – which is ideal if you’re planning to stay out after your 90 minutes is up.

And when it comes to your serves, choose from prosecco, lager or cider – then simply sit back, relax and watch the world go by.
