5 Sunday Roasts to Try in London


Sunday Roast is a weekly British tradition that I wish we had in the States. There’s nothing more satisfying than roasted meat, crispy soft Yorkshire pudding and roasted vegetables topped with savory gravy. Here are five spots you should try next time you’re in London.

The Albion, Islington
This Georgian gem serves up everything from Roast Sussex Lamb Rump to Slow Roast Hampshire Pork Belly to 28-Day-Aged Rare-Breed Beef With Yorkshire Pudding, plus desserts like Sticky Toffee Pudding With Honeycomb Ice Cream.

London N1 1HW

The Jolly Butchers
If heavy doses of Sunday Roast and all the fixings are what you’re after, go to the Jolly Butchers in Stoke Newington, where you get an ample serving of meat, along with all the fixings, and a large selection of ciders.

London N16 7HU

The Princess of Shoreditch
Beef sirloin, pork rib-eye, lamb shoulder and poussin are all regulars on the Sunday menu, where slow-cooking ensures juicy and flavorful cuts of meat. Duck fat adds an extra bit of flavor to the roasted potatoes,

Dean Street Townhouse
If something a little more refined is what you prefer, go to the Dean Street Townhouse for that private club ambience. Have some Hereford Beef or Banham Chicken with roast potatoes and cauliflower cheese.

London W1D 3SE

The Truscott Arms
There’s a reason why this Maida Vale pub got voted Best British Roast Restaurant last year — it’s because of its rich gravy, tasty, tender meat, and puffy Yorkshire pudding. Go for the smoked English lamb leg and braised shoulder with garlic and rosemary infused lamb sauce.
