Smokey Tails in Hoxton, for a boozy bottomless brunch. Indulge yourself this weekend at Smokey Tails by investing in its all-you-can-eat brunch of American goodness. For a mere £30 you can munch your way through a menu of seriously delicious comfort food including crunchy brioche French toast with fried chicken, bacon and maple syrup.  Wash it down with as many Proseccos, Mimosas or Bloody Marys as you please – the diet starts Monday.
