London’s Best Sunday Roasts
There’s no doubt about it, you can’t beat a Sunday Roast. So, we’ve done the hard work for you and found some of the best spots for a tasty Sunday lunch in London.
From pubs with unbeatable views of the Thames, to top spots adored by locals, take a look at our list of London’s best Sunday roasts:
HEIR LOOM, CROUCH END
An upmarket, but relaxed restaurant in a fantastic spot in London away from the busy crowds, Heir Loom is a lovely spot for Sunday roast. Choose between succulent smoked Windsor pork loin, 35-day aged Red Sussex beef rib and slow-roasted Blackface lamb.
Sunday lunch is typically served between noon-3.45pm, with some availability (if there’s any left) between 6-9pm. Sunday lunch for two with drinks and service: around £50.
ANCHOR BANKSIDE, LONDON BRIDGE
For an unbeatable location, the Anchor is the perfect choice. The main dining room has wonderful views across the Thames to the City and it was actually from this pub that Samuel Pepys witnessed the destruction of the Great Fire of London in 1666.
Served all day Sunday, you can choose from three roasts: lamb, beef or pork, all for a very affordable £15.
THE DELAUNAY, COVENT GARDEN
If you’re looking to splash out on your Sunday roast, this is the place for you. As a sibling of The Wolseley, expect smooth service, a grand room and a delicious European menu. There’s roast rib of beef with Yorkshire pudding, for around £25, but trust us, it’s worth it.
Sunday lunch is served from noon-10.30pm. Sunday lunch for two with drinks and service will cost you around £80.
This one is a little hard to find, as it’s tucked away in a quiet residential street north of Clapham Common. But the locals love it for a decent Sunday lunch.
Succulent meaty delights include: slow-roast pork (£17.50), roast beef (£17.50) or half a roast chicken (£15) all served with sides of roast potatoes, cabbage and root veg.
CARPENTER’S ARMS, BETHNAL GREEN
Relaxed dining with ridiculously tasty food. Sunday-specific options are two roasts (sirloin of beef or loin of pork, served with roast potatoes and a Yorkshire pud), or you can order from the main menu.
Sunday lunch is served typically between 1-5pm (subject to availability). It normally costs for two with drinks and service: around £55.
THE CRABTREE, FULHAM
A Thames-side gastropub with a lot on offer. Whether you want rump of beef (£15.75); lemon and thyme chicken (£14.50); or pork belly with apple sauce (£14.75); your plate will come piled high with roasties, a Yorkshire pud, seasonal veg and red wine gravy. What more could you want!
Sunday lunch is served between noon-9pm, and don’t worry, they stock up their meaty treats, so don’t worry about arriving late. Sunday lunch for two with drinks and service (two courses) is around £60.
