Free-Flowing Menus – Whats it all about?

In a day where abundance seems to be the norm and we expect more and more for our money we have a look at Free-Flowing Menus – Whats it all about? This term ‘Free-Flowing’ is simply another disguised term for ‘All You Can Eat/Drink’.

When you imagine an all you can eat restaurant or meal the immediate picture conjured up in our mind is a Chinese or Pan-European buffet of some sort. Absolutly crowded and the food, well simply not the best quality. Well this seems to have evolved now as restaurants realise they can use this tactic to attract customers back and new customers too. The all you can eat concept, as well as being renamed to the classier Free-Flowing Menus has also evolved to include just some parts of a meal or service. For example some restaurants are advertising Free-Flowing champagne with their lunches or dinner menus. Free-Flowing brunches and Free-Flowing afternoon teas.

If you’re like us, you’ll be wondering whether you can really get your moneys worth with this type of concept. We always say we’re going to eat loads to get our moneys worth. Almost becoming a competition (No Shame). So lets look at the below options we investigated.

Roux at The Landau with Free-Flowing Bubbles

A dream for many to have free flowing champagne outside of an event launch or PR event. You can now enjoy this as part of a standard restaurant visit. 3-course brunch & free-flowing crémant £75 or with champagne £90 per person. This is a really top notch French restaurant owed by Michael Roux which is incredibly popular. For a 3 course lunch in London at a restaurant of this standard if you had simply one glass of champagne it would be worthy of the price. If you fancy a couple more then have some with no further expense. We shall be availing of this offer again soon!
