There's nothing we love more than a hearty Sunday roast, especially on a lazy weekend as we slide into autumn. Whether you’re a chicken, beef, or nut roast lover, we all have our favourite haunts for this traditionally British meal.
London is packed with pubs and restaurants delivering mouth-wateringly delicious offerings. We’ve rounded-up ten of the best to try this weekend. Bring on the Yorkshires.
This swanky Soho restaurant does the classic hearty roast to perfection. With a simple selection of Hereford beef or Banham chicken, this is one for those who don’t need the bells and whistles. This is just good, tasty food done well. One for the in-laws.
This north London pub is a perfect option for those wanting a traditional roast. They’re BBQ connoisseurs but on Sundays they have a classic line-up of pork ribeye and smoked shoulder, lamb and rare-breed beef, all served with cauliflower puree, honey mustard carrots, beef fat greens and Yorkshire pudding. Fish-lovers also have the option to choose pan-roasted salmon.
This Michelin starred pub (currently the only in London) puts a fine dining spin on a Sunday roast. The kitchen specialises in game and wild food, changing the menu to match seasonal ingredients. The result is delicious, fresh-tasting dishes. The red-legged partridge with bacon, creamed kale, pickled pear and bread sauce is particularly good.
Surrounded by the delectable sights and smells of Borough Market, the suitably named Roast is ideal for more of a formal Sunday lunch experience. Watching the hustle and bustle of the market below, you can choose from the extensive offering of dishes using only produce from British farmers and suppliers.
This meat-lovers haven has won awards for its Sunday roasts, which can be enjoyed in one of the many Hawksmoor sites across London. As one of the capital’s best steakhouses, meat is unsurprisingly the star of the show. It’s cooked first over charcoal and then in the oven, and served with lashings of show-stopping gravy.
The well-loved and recently refreshed Kensington Park Hotel has a refined and indulgent Sunday menu, perfect to enjoy with a bottle of wine. Options for mains include mouth-watering 45-day aged sirloin, mushroom, spinach and feta Wellington and braised Cotswold lamb shoulder.
Sunday lunches at Ten Greek Street are a foodies’ dream. Head chef Cameron Emirali’s menus change each week and feature some of the best seasonal produce available. Think dishes such as Hereford beef with new potatoes, and sweet treats like hazelnut dacquoise with lemon curd.
This pub in the heart of Hackney has officially relaunched its sell-out Sunday roast. Every dish is cooked to perfection: crispy on the outside, yet fluffy on the inside potatoes, puffed-up Yorkshire puddings, roasted, crunchy veggies, rich, top-quality meat and of course, bucket-loads of gravy.
Tucked away behind the Barbican Centre, The Jugged Hare specialises in British game, beer and taxidermy (on the walls - not your plate). The well-edited menu offers whole or half chickens, roast leg of mutton and aged rump of beef, served with seasonal veggies.
Specialising in high-quality, expertly chargrilled beef, lamb and pork chops, Blacklock's Sunday roasts have become the stuff of legends. Whole joints of meat are cooked over open coals and Engligh oak, and are served with a generous selection of seasonal veg, Yorkshires, roasties and Blacklock gravy.
