There’s nothing more disappointing than finally getting the courage to leave the house after a late night out in search for a good place to fill the breakfast void and discovering they stop serving fry-ups at midday. Who would do such a thing?

However, brunch has been saving hungry hangovers for over 100 years. Thought to have been coined by Punch magazine in 1895, who described it as a meal for ‘Saturday-night carousers’ to enjoy on Sunday, this British mealtime has become an institution for leisurely weekend dining.

MEATLiquor, situated in the hip Stokes Croft in Bristol, provides the perfect antidote with its new brunch menu. Combining British classics with American style, brunch will never be the same again. For those who like to stick to tradition, the hearty full English (priced at a very reasonable £8) will put the spring back in your step.

If you’re into how brunch is served stateside, then you the American pancakes served with crispy bacon, sausage, hash brown and the all-important sweet coating of maple syrup are a great pick. Home of the humble burger, MEATLiquor’s brunch menu doesn’t forget their roots with the Breakfast Burger: egg, bacon, sausage, tomatoes and mushrooms crammed into a bun. The menu presents a variety of veggie options too; the Greek (eggs, halloumi, tomatoes, cucumber, feta, olives, chargrilled brad, Greek yoghurt, honey and fruit) is a light choice for those who still want to be able to move after dining here.

Brunch lingers long into the afternoon and is nothing without hair of the dog to get you going again. With a Bloody Mary in one hand and a Breakfast Burger in the other, MEATLiquor is sure to sort you out and get you back into the swing of the weekend. If you’re not quite up to it yet bottomless coffee should do the trick.

For those who daren’t venture out, MEATLiquor have teamed up with Deliveroo to bring you delicious grub right to your door so you won’t have to move a muscle.
