Sunday Roast in London?

Can anyone suggest a great place for a Sunday roast in London? Maybe a gastro-pub?

  1. I haven't found anything I loved yet, so I would be interested in hearing what others have to say

    1. Roast which is above Borough Market is excellent. Only been there once and actually opted for the fish & chips, but everyone else highly recommended the roasts, which looked gorgeous. My fish & chips was superb, and came wrapped in the FT, which was a wry touch (considering it was about twice the cost of a real chippie).

      For me, all the gastros are hit and miss. There is a good reliable old school pub near me in Stoke Newington -- The Rose & Crown at the top of church street, which does the classic pub roast. Also locally, The Prince on Kynaston Rd can be excellent, but have been off their game on my last couple of visits.

      1. If you want a "great" Sunday roast you're better off somewhere like the Dorchester Grill Room or the Rib Room at the Carlton Tower, than at a Gastropub

          Totally agree with the Rib Room, Tony, but it's a tad on the pricey side. Simpsons in the Strand is rather less so, but has always been a good choice in my experience:

        2. The Sunday roast at the Thomas Cubitt is very good. The roast beef is 42-day aged, and will set you back £12.50. It's a very different proposition in terms of formality and cost from a grand hotel, but I've always enjoyed it.

          Edited to add: Forgot the address: it's on Elizabeth Street near Victoria.

          1. From the same chef that owns the Fat Duck in Bray... right down the lane is the HINDS HEAD HOTEL. Very Gastro!

              I'd hardly say that this was in london - it's an hour to maidenhead by train!
