Nothing says comfort and relaxation like the offer of a Sunday Roast. Nostalgic as it is delicious, it’s one of those meals that just makes everything better. Here are some tips from our team on where to head for this illustrious dining event.
The Orange Public House is a beautifully restored building in Pimlico. The bustling bar serves a fantastic Sunday Roast, perfect for when I’m in London. When I’m not I always head to The Buntingford Kitchen – our chefs there do a fantastic roast with all the trimmings!
Shoreditch House is the perfect place to unwind on a Sunday, and the roasts are fantastic. The rooftop restaurant is a great place to eat, with greenery, lavender beds and expansive views across east London and the City.
The Red Lion is one of my favourite pubs for a Sunday Roast. I go for Leytonstone beef every time – with lashings of English mustard!
Other than my mum’s house, my Favourite place in London for roast is a pub called the Idle Hour in Barnes – it’s just yummy and still quite unknown – share a roast leg of lamb for two, it’s a great date place and it’s off the beaten track.
The Green Man in Putney has a great beer garden, which is perfect for roast dinners during the summer months.
I have to say I always opt for a burger over a roast (controversial I know!) but when I do head out for a roast dinner I always go to The Gorringe Park pub in Tooting, it’s a great pub with a cinema in the basement.
Sunday roast is always a local one. I go to The Old Suffolk Punch, a great pub with a large fireplace, plenty of board games to ensure a full lazy afternoon, and friendly staff.
It’s got to be Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese – one of the oldest pubs in London.
The Chaser pub in Shipbourne Kent is my favourite. It’s great value, and a perfect location. I love the goose fat potatoes and all the trimmings.
I love the Holly Bush in Hampstead, it’s a charming historic pub with great guest brews – and of course an epic Sunday roast!
