Bottomless brunches are booming in Birmingham and now the successful hospitality concept has an exciting new buddy - the bottomless Sunday roast lunch.
You don’t need to get up that bit earlier to meet friends, or limit yourself to a breakfast feast to enjoy limitless drinks - for a limited time - now you can relax with a traditional British dish and get to try out as many glasses of wine from some of the world’s best vineyards. No need to choose between white or red, just try both - along with a rose and sparkler, if you fancy it!
Vagabond has launched the concept at its stylish venue on Colmore Row which opened a year ago where you will find over 100 wines to choose from. It’s a great space to visit - if you haven’t been already.
Natural wood designs blend with tasteful lighting throwing a spotlight on the unique tap-and-pour machines housing quality wines from around the world - there’s self pour craft beer too, if, for some strange reason, you aren’t a wine fan!
So what’s so special about Vagabond wine?
The concept was set up by a New York businessman while he was studying in London. Vagabond grew from a little shop to 9 wine bars across the capital and one at Heathrow Airport. Birmingham is the only one outside the south east. Vagabond also has its own English vineyards, but serves wines from around the world.
There are tasting notes next to each tap-and-pour machine to help you decide which wine to try, so you can always be a bit daring and try something you might not have heard of before.
When we visited to try out the bottomless Sunday lunch we were offered a choice of red, white, rose and sparkling which were previously selected and highly recommended. You can try as many glasses as you dare, within 90 minutes.
What about the food and service?
There is a great selection of the most popular roast dinners to choose from - chicken, pork belly, beef and a vegan nut roast.
As you can see from our pictures the portions were generous with a huge selection of veg and deliciously huge Yorkshire roasts and gravy included. Definitely plenty of food to soak up the wine sampling.
Our service was excellent too. The team at Vagabond were all so helpful and really excited about the new concept. There’s plenty of help with choosing wines and getting the most out of your time on the bottomless deal.
So how much does it cost?
If you are ‘Bordeaux out of your mind’ this Sunday, you can get yourself down to Vagabond for some classic, British comfort food and wines from across the world. Priced at just £35 per person, or £42 per person if you would like to add prosecco. It could be the best way to round off your weekend.
