If You Want A Delicious Breakfast…
Across London, Hippo Inns will be opening early for the big game with special breakfast and brunch menus. Every menu offers something different, such as the Townhouse Trio Bap filled with egg, bacon and sausage at the Islington Town House; a full English breakfast alongside bottomless jugs of beer or Bloody Marys at the Grafton in Kentish Town; Back Row avocado toast at the Blue Anchor in Hammersmith; or a sausage or bacon bap with egg and a pint for £10 at the Eagle in Ladbroke Grove. At the George on the Isle of Dogs, large groups can order breakfast bagel slider sharing platters for £20. Some locations even have private rooms for hire.
Brewhouse & Kitchen
All three Brewhouse and Kitchens (Highbury, Islington and Hoxton) are opening early on Saturday. Try the brew pub’s new Brunch Burger served in a ‘croll’ (a cross between a croissant and a roll), as well as buttermilk pancakes topped with strawberry, blueberry, banana & maple syrup, a B&K Full English and Smoked Bacon Eggs Benedict. All of these and more will be served alongside newly tapped low-ABV beers on draught, as well as more than 70 craft beers and ciders and an extensive range of soft drinks if you’re not feeling the early morning brewskies! For parties of 6+ they require a deposit of £5 per person to secure the booking.
If You Want To Be Outside…
For a morning eye-opener head to Skylight Rooftop where you can catch all the action while taking in the panoramic views of the city. The game will be screened early doors across all three floors and the bar is equipped – come rain or shine – with indoor and outdoor screens, street food, entertainment and lawn games. Brunch will be available from YIRO and Flipside, as well as plenty of morning ‘eye-openers’ to help with the bracing start time.
