Manchester has a new bottomless brunch offer, and it sounds like an absolute beast of a deal – with bacon gravy-soaked burgers, fizz and pints galore.
Launched by the quality burger slingers behind Honest Burgers on Bridge Street, the new bottomless deal gives diners 90 minutes to indulge in non-stop drinks like buck’s fizz, cider, beer and prosecco – not to mention a dirty burger of their choice.
Spanning some solid veggie, vegan and gluten free burger options alongside meaty feasts like the special beef Wellington burger – a stunning combination of Honest beef, bacon, cheddar, béarnaise butter, crispy pastry, bacon gravy, mushroom duxelles, baby spinach and pickles, created especially for Manchester – the whole thing will set you back just £30.
Not too shabby like, if we do say so ourselves.
During your 90 minutes of non-stop drinks, you’ll also be treated to a burger of your choice and signature rosemary chips (described as “edible crystal meth” by Guardian food critic Jay Rayner) from the regular menu as part of the new boozy brunch.
Whilst we can’t help but feel drawn to the special Manchester Wellington burger, if you’re not feeling it other worthy candidates include Honest’s classic burger, topped with homemade red onion relish, smoked bacon, cheddar, lettuce and homemade pickles, or the chilli burger, topped with Honest beef, bacon, chilli cheese, Honest hot sauce, shoestring fries, red onion, lettuce and pickled red jalapenos.
Meanwhile, chicken fans can dig into a free range breast with basil pesto, mustard mayo, tomato and rocket, or the New Orleans-style fried buttermilk thigh burger with candied bacon, American cheese, ‘chow chow’ green tomato relish, Bulls-Eye chipotle hot sauce, ranch mayo and lettuce.
As for those who prefer a plant-based diet, choose from The Fritter (a southern-fried courgette and sweetcorn burger with cheddar, chipotle mayo, slaw, red onion and pickles), The Plant (a Beyond Meat patty, Applewood vegan cheese, Rubies chipotle ‘mayo’, mustard, red onion, pickles and lettuce) or The Bacon Plant, which is pretty much the same but with added vegan bacon and spinach.
Launching on 2 July, the new bottomless brunch will take place on the first Saturday of every month with bookings open now.
There are two booking slots open on that day, giving diners the chance of reserving a table for either at 12pm or 2.30pm. To seel the full menu and book your table, visit the Honest Burgers website here.

The delivery giant is offering up the discount from today all the way through to the new year.
It means that locals in the city centre, as well as Chorlton, Didsbury and Rusholme, will be able to save 25% on their Deliveroo order.
There are loads of local restaurants and cafes taking part, including the ever-popular burger and shake joint Archie’s and long-standing favourite Tampopo.
Yum Cha, which opened at Kampus this summer after 11 hugely successful years in Liverpool, is also taking part, with its incredible roast meats cooked for 24 hours in a custom-made roasting oven, plus Chinese small plates and dim sum.
Manc favourite Rudy’s, home of arguably the country’s best pizza, are included in Deliveroo’s 25% discount, alongside chicken legends Yard & Coop.
A bar in Manchester has made the move to introduce a ridiculously cheap drinks deal, pricing a number of its most popular bevs at just £2.50 each.
Yes, that’s right. Every Friday night for the foreseeable future, Alvarium in the Northern Quarter will be serving up bottles of beer, alongside spirits and glasses of red, white and rose wine at a super low rate.
Perfect for helping those struggling with the high cost of, well, everything right now, this is a way to get the Christmas presents sorted and still go out celebrating the festive season with your mates. Happy days.
The Northern Quarter bar, which stays open until 1am on Fridays, launched a new extended happy hour earlier this summer that saw it offer two bottles of San Miguel for £5, two cocktails for £10 and bottles of house wine at £12.50 each.
Now, however, Alvarium’s owners have taken things a step further – taking the pricing structure back to the nineties with a range of £2.50 drinks available every Friday.
As well as wine and beer, you’ll find tasty spritzes sitting alongside other festive-themed cocktails like ‘Santa’s Little Helper’ (a mix of brandy, bourbon, lemon, cranberry and orange) and ‘Winter Berries’ (vodka, apple, passionfruit, grenadine and lemonade).
Sharing the news online over the weekend, the dog-friendly cocktail bar and kitchen wrote: “INTRODUCING THE FRIDAY NIGHT SOCIAL.
The bar has previously hosted kitchen pop-ups from the likes of vegan kitchen Black Leaf, Manchester slab shack Lazy Tony’s Lasagneria, and Abeja Tapas Bar.
Now it has taken its food offering back in-house, serving up a selection of locally-sourced meat and cheese boards loaded with an array of pickles, chutneys, crackers, giant slices of sourdough and more – perfect for soaking up all that cheap, cheap booze.
