It's that time of the year where the nights are drawing in and all you're craving on a Sunday is a roast with all the trimmings. But with no access to Mum's cooking, and your culinary skills not quite up to par for a full roast yet - you scrap the idea.
Don't worry, we've scouted the top spots across London for a roast that will neither break the bank or compromise on portions. Do a stint and you may even be able to afford a pint with it!
The Rose Pub
1 Hardwood Terrace, Fulham, London SW6 2AF
This gastropub in Chelsea has a top-notch and affordable Sunday roast menu. Starting at £13 they offer a choice of roast pork, chicken, Angus beef or a roast butternut tart - with all mains served with roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings, seasonal vegetables, cauliflower cheese & gravy! So if you’re south of the river and fancy a well-priced and very filling roast, head to The Rose.
The Crown and Anchor
246 Brixton Road, London SW9 6AQ
For a great Sunday roast at a very bank friendly price, make a visit to The Crown and Anchor in Brixton. With half a roast chicken, crispy roast potatoes and other trimmings for £11.90, and lamb shoulder for £13.50 - you won’t find prices this good at many other places! They serve roasts every Sunday from 12 - 8pm, so you won’t miss out if you wake up at 2pm from Saturday night's antics.
The Three Compasses
99 Dalston Ln, Kingsland, London E8 1NH
This East end pub is taking an alternative twist on roast dinners – offering all the trimmings in a burger! Served in brioche buns with crispy potatoes and gravy, you can choose from roast beef, chicken or a spiced mushroom and walnut patty – all at £12!
Princess of Shoreditch
76-78 Paul St, Hackney, London EC2A 4NE
After a killer veggie nut roast or roast beef for under £20? You need to visit The Princess of Shoreditch in Old Street. Whilst this is one of the slightly pricier ones on our list, this gastro pub is known for its top quality produce.
Tip: make a reservation as it gets booked up pretty quickly.
Pig and Butcher
80 Liverpool Road, London N1 0QD
This cosy pub in North London serves roasts made for sharing. With a choice of a whole chicken crown for two people for £19.00, and lamb shoulder for two for £25 - it works out at an affordable price, and makes for a great Sunday date spot!
The Andover Arms
57 Aldensley Rd, Hammersmith, London W6 0DL
Like your Yorkshire Puddings the size of your head? If yes, (obviously) then you need to visit The Andover Arms in Hammersmith. With huge portions from £13.25, this little 1880s pub is great if you’re living West and fancy a pint and a roast at a proper pub.
