Dry January may be over but that doesn’t have to spell the end of our enjoyment of alcohol-free cocktails.
No matter your motives, it’s just plain nice to have some non-alcoholic alternatives on the menu that don’t contain a whole week’s worth of calories or taste like a super sugary slush puppy. That’s why we’ve rounded up some of the best alcohol-free restaurants and kitchens serving 0% cocktails in the UK so you can enjoy a tipple-less meal whenever you feel like it.
Here they are:
1. Coppa Club, multiple UK locations
Locations: Berkshire (Maidenhead, Sonning-on-Thames, Streatley-on-Thames) + Bristol (Clifton Village) + East Sussex (Brighton) + London (Putney, Tower Bridge) + Oxfordshire (Henley-on-Thames) + Surrey (Cobham Village)
Try this alcohol-free cocktail: Sanguinello Spritz
From Bristol to Brighton, Coppa Club has a whole host of restaurants serving alcohol-free across the entire width of the south of England. We love the cosy and laid back community vibe they’ve managed to create in all of their venues; Coppa Club is a home away from home!
2. KOTA Kitchen and Bar, Cambridge
Location: 37 Eddington Avenue, Cambridge, CB3 1SE
Try this alcohol-free cocktail: Grapefruit Spritz
Situated in the heart of the Eddington neighbourhood, KOTA is the perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of Cambridge’s city centre. In addition to serving fabulously vibrant food, their innovative bar menu offers a range of herbaceous, fruity, sweet and spicy botanical cocktails including low and alcohol-free. They even sell a variety of NoLo beers!
3. Proudfoot & Co., Winchester
Location: 30 St Thomas St, Winchester, SO23 9HJ
Try this alcohol-free cocktail: Hampshire Honeydew
Whilst Proudfoot & Co. is perhaps more of a cafe space than an alcohol-free restaurant, it’s definitely worth a mention since they still serve light meals and their 0% concoctions are out of this world. Their drinks and nibbles are based on old British recipes and feature plenty of interesting ferments and locally foraged ingredients. Oh, and it’s located in a beautifully renovated listed building in gorgeous Winchester.
