On Sundays, enjoy bottomless drinks for 90 minutes with Seven’s breakfast and lunch menus for £17.50pp (food charged separately). There’s lots of delicious choices. From a Full English or Vegetarian breakfast to smashed avocado on sourdough to American pancakes or smoothie bowls. If you don’t fancy going completely bottomless (legless?!), you can also order ‘morning tipples’ by the glass.
Alternatively, there’s a separate champagne breakfast option for £24.95pp. This includes one glass of champagne or two glasses of prosecco, your choice of tea, coffee or hot chocolate; freshly baked pastries; a choice of breakfast starter (granola, pancakes or porridge) and then a choice of brunch main, for example a Full English or eggs benedict.

There are a good choice of breakfast options, including smashed avocado, various pancakes or an “angry mac” a pork patty topped with streaky bacon, fried egg, Emmental, hash brown and spicy mayo, served in a toasted brioche bun either house seasoned fries salad.

Start with prosecco (or orange juice) before tucking into a pastry and fruit platter served with a fruit smoothie. There are then a choice of brunch mains including a Full English, smoked salmon and poached egg or Polish style hash brown. Vegetarian options are available on request. If youre not completely stuffed after that there’s even a brunch dessert. Choose from cinnamon French toast or peanut butter cookie dough. All for £30pp. Booking essential.
Just outside Derbyshire
Gorgeous gastro pub The Star at Cotton is technically Staffordshire but is easily accessible from Ashbourne so deserves a spot here. The Star offer a bottomless brunch menu daily for £37pp and includes a delicious brunch dish and two hours of cocktails (or prosecco). Food options include buttermilk pancakes with bacon and maple syrup, bacon and brie toasted stack with chilli jam or a huge ‘Star breakfast’ (basically a delicious full English). Cocktails include pornstar martinis, jugs of Pimms, the Star’s signature cocktail, mimosas etc. For full details and T&Cs scroll down to the bottom of their summer menu. Booking essential.
These options aren’t bottomless but would be a lovely treat, maybe for a slightly more refined (and less squiffy) experience.

Champagne breakfasts are served at Morley Hayes Wednesday to Saturday. The menu regularly changes but is always deliciously decadent. Start with toast or croissant and preserves, then there’s a breakfast starter and then a breakfast main course!
