Five best hotels to wake up

to the perfect brunch



Looking for the ultimate indulgence this weekend? Pack your bags, forget about the washing up and check into one of these brunch-friendly boltholes.

Soho Farmhouse

Recently opened in the celebrity enclave of Great Tew in Oxfordshire, the latest addition to the Soho House family offers luxury log cabins starting at £330 per night. Dubbed the Boho Butlins, these cabins come complete with metal bathtubs and artisan kitchens.

The brunch menu includes comfort-food favourites (macaroni and cheese), new wave breakfast (avocado on toast with poached egg) and full-on dinner dishes (whole lemon sole with burned butter).

Food is delivered to your cabin on a traditional milk float. If you can be bothered to get out of bed, customised Foffa bikes are everywhere, there’’s indoor and outdoor swimming at the boathouse, an ice rink in winter and you can even try surf board yoga.

Berners Tavern at The London Edition

The London Edition’’s intimate chalet-styled rooms, the reservations-only Punch Room and neoclassical design has won this Ian Schrager destination much praise from guests.

Jason Atherton is at the helm of the Fitzrovia hotel’’s Michelin-starred restaurant, serving British with a twist. Sunday brunch includes baked Cotswolds eggs paired with smoked haddock and gruyère, truffle eggs benedict with Iberico ham served on a toasted muffin.

Le Manoir aux Quat’’Saisons

Raymond Blanc’’s Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons is about as celebrated as it gets, so what better place to wake up for a sumptuous breakfast? Yes, it’s not strictly brunch but for this hotel, we’re breaking the rules.

The two Michelin stars awarded to the Oxfordshire restaurant in 1984 are still held to this date. Currently at the helm is Gary Jones, who brings an experimental edge to the expected fine dining.

Calcot Manor

Gloucestershire’’s Calcot Manor has acres of meadowland to explore and two dining experiences: The Gumstool Inn and The Conservatory.

The Cotswolds are on your doorstep and there’’s an outdoor hot tub to enjoy – but don’’t neglect the brunch options – from a smoked haddock kedgeree bursting with Indian flavour to an omelette of your choice.

Behind the 17th century facade, Chester’’s Oddfellows is an idiosyncratic place. A selection of rooms pay homage to Hollywood glamour and include circular beds; there are oversized lamps, eccentric art and quirky touches everywhere.

Ingredients are sourced seasonally and locally – start your day with brunch at The Garden restaurant, where trees grow through tables and the floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the secret garden.
