A delicious Sunday roast is a British tradition that millions of families enjoy every week. While a homemade meal is often best, getting someone else to cook it for you is a great choice too.
Some of London’s hotels have fantastic restaurants that serve unbeatable Sunday roasts. If you want a relaxing Sunday where you don’t have to cook, or you’ve never tried a Sunday roast before, dining out a restaurant is ideal. You’re sure to get quality at one of these top hotels…
Dean Street Townhouse
Dean Street Townhouse is an intimate Georgian townhouse hotel and restaurant. After a night in one of the sumptuous 39 bedrooms, the cosy dining room is the perfect place for a traditional Sunday lunch.
Settle in and start off with truffled cauliflower soup, followed by Hereford beef or Banham chicken with stuffing, served with roast potatoes, cauliflower cheese, seasonal veg and Yorkshire pudding. If you still have room, finish off with ice cream and sorbet, British cheeses, or rice pudding and poached rhubarb.
Ultra-cool London Edition is home to Berners Tavern, where it’s brunch time from 9am until 4pm on a Sunday.
If you’re looking for a roast, their Sunday roast brunch features a choice of roast sirloin of Ruby Red beef with all the trimmings or a roast belly of Dingley Dell pork with all the trimmings. The restaurant’s beautiful interior, with its stylish booths and art-covered walls, won GQ Best Restaurant Interior in 2015.
Sometimes, you just can’t beat London’s more traditional hotels when you’re hoping to enjoy a British tradition. The Dining Room at The Goring is the perfect place for lunch if you want something more formal.
While some other restaurants don’t offer much choice, The Goring will give you at least five or six options for each course. You can start off with something like cured sea bream with pickled lemon, hazelnut oil, iced celery and cucumber.
Your main course could be anything from traditional Hereford beef or Salt Marsh lamb to a more unusual glazed lobster omelette with duck fat chips and lobster Caesar salad. Finish with a mascarpone and lime mousse with citrus fruit sorbet and passion fruit, or perhaps a selection of British cheeses.
Get three courses for £55 or try one of a selection of special dishes at a supplement, such as potted Lytham shrimp or Dover sole.
If any day of the week is for eating, it’s Sunday. On your next visit to London, how about fitting in a good Sunday roast?
