The best thing about Sundays? The Sunday roast of course. The Jugged Hare is just the place to go to if you find yourself in the City, bringing London the roast it deserves. The pub serves up the most delicious seasonal game and produce, including Tamworth pork belly and lamb shoulder, all roasted to perfection and served up with a proper massive Yorkshire pudding, duck fat roast potatoes and buttery seasonal vegetables. Not to mention the rotisserie gravy that’ll leave you wanting buckets of it. Make sure you save room for dessert too, because that classic sticky toffee pudding is smothered in butterscotch sauce and comes with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. An absolute winner.

If your ideal Sunday is a stroll round an exhibition followed by a roast, then Ochre is the spot for you. The restaurant at the National Gallery has the proximity to art nailed down, and with a new Sunday menu, they have lunch sorted too. There’s only one way to start and that’s with a visit from the Bloody Mary trolley, where you can get one made fresh in front of you with your choice of vodka, gin or tequila – a couple of their cheddar & Lyonnaise onion croquettes make the ideal snack pairing. You can choose from the same starter selection as on the dinner menu, including the likes of gin-cured trout with rhubarb & fennel, burrata with caponata, beef tartare, and sweet potato & pea samosa, before opting for one of three roasts. The quality of the aged Hereford beef is superb (and you get two thick slices of it), and comes with horseradish, pickled walnuts and watercress, so you get plenty of pepperiness and acidity to cut through the meat, along with the classic sides of Yorkshire pud, potatoes, glazed carrots, and greens. Then it has to be the sticky toffee pudding with gingerbread crumb to finish. Ochre is on the expensive side (that’s what you get for being on Trafalgar Square and inside a major attraction) but the restaurant really is stunning inside and it’ll defo impress if you’ve got parents visiting from out of town.

The Booking Office bar at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel re-opened in 2021 as Booking Office 1869 after a pretty exceptional revamp. Originally the St Pancras ticket hall in the 19th century, the space has been reimagined by celebrated French designer Hugo Toro, who has created a Victorian-style winter garden complete with eight-metre tall palm trees, huge pendant lights made from brass leaves and a 22-metre long bar. If that doesn’t sound like the ideal setting for a Sunday roast in London, we don’t know what is. Their three-course lunch is priced at £45 per person and kicks off with the likes of beetroot hummus & sea salt crackers and cured salmon with buttermilk, dill, pickled shallot & seaweed. That’s followed by either roast roll rib-eye, chicken or miso caramel glazed butternut squash – all served with roasted potatoes, carrots, greens & Yorkshire puddings. And to finish off on a high, there are some classic British puds (the likes of brown bread & treacle tart and rice pudding) as well as a cheese option. FYI: expect generous portions.

Rondo, the in-house restaurant at The Hoxton, Holborn is doing Sunday afternoons right with Sunday Sharers, featuring big roasts, wine on tap and live music. There’s only one way to kick things off and that’s with a round of rock oyster and mini Fords Gin martinis – a good roast deserves a good toast right? There are six roasts to choose from for the main event, including roast Longhorn rump, slow roast Middlewhite pork shoulder, brill, Swaledale lamb & potato hotpot, lobster pie, and celeriac steak, with sides of duck fat roasties, spinach, cauliflower cheese and roast carrots brought to the table for you to dive into – you’re defo not short of food here. You will wanna save room though for the giant apple & rhubarb crumble with custard, which is made to be shared, although it’s so good that you won’t be sticking to just your half. Keep the wine flowing for the music in the lobby and see out the weekend in style.

Coal Office in King’s Cross is all about fusing influences from Jerusalem and London, and that fusion is most clearly showcased through the restaurant’s Jerusalem Sunday Roast. Just like the regular menu, everything on the Sunday menu is designed to be shared and they aim to feed – the starter selection of kubalah (a gorgeous Yemeni brioche), tahini with tomato & schug, labneh & sumac, fennel salad, and the herby, crunchy, yoghurty Nablus Gate salad is larger than most mains. The roast itself is beef, carrots and potatoes, done Middle Eastern style – tender Turkish coffee-braised brisket, Dunkirk harissa carrots and pink fir potatoes drenched in smoked butter – and again, there’s plenty to go around. You can get the first two courses for £30 a per person, which is fantastic value given both the quality and quantity of the food, but it’s worth adding on the dessert of hazelnut ice cream with buckwheat crumble, chocolate & feuilletine for an extra fiver, especially if you like praline. With plenty of counter seating and Middle Eastern pop covers on the stereo, it’s also vibey as well as good value.

The Audley Public House is a classic boozer in Mayfair that’s had one hell of a makeover since being taken over by Artfarm (the hospitality arm of Hauser & Wirth). The place is looking absolutely swish, but is still unmistakably a quintessential London pub (although this one does happen to have a ceiling mural by artist Phyllida Barlow). The kitchen is headed up by Jamie Shears and on Sunday there’s a really excellent roast to get stuck into. The produce is top-notch, with some of it even coming from Artfarm’s own farm in Somerset. There are thick slabs of perfectly cooked beef; some of the best roasties we’ve had in a pub; seasonal veg; and a proper rich gravy. There’s also a Yorkshire pud that’s stuffed with short rib – a first for us! Top marks.

Townsend, the modern British dining room inside the Whitechapel Gallery, has built a rep for simple, seasonal, quality cooking and it’s something the restaurant is doing all week long thanks to the return of its Sunday lunch. As with the regular menu, which changes regularly according to what produce the kitchen has sourced, the Sunday offering features unfussy but extremely well-executed small plates such as Red Leicester croquettes & pickled walnut ketchup and crispy pig’s head with fennel salad, along with a handful of roast mains, like half a chicken to share between two and roasted lamb leg with carrots, chard, crispy roasties, gravy and green sauce. There are a selection of classic desserts to finish with, including treacle tart with clotted cream and sticky toffee pudding with creme fraiche, which, like everything else that comes out of the kitchen, are so good that you’ll contemplate whether you’ve got room for another round. All in all, a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

The Culpeper is an East End boozer with a difference. The menu here, for the roast and otherwise, is heavily focused on sustainability and their produce is locally sourced from minimal intervention and regenerative farms. They even get some of the herbs used from their own rooftop garden – it doesn’t get much more local than that. Highlights from the Sunday menu include goat’s cheese crottin, beetroot & puy lentil tarte; pork rillettes with pickles & toast; herb-fed chicken with roast potatoes & bread sauce; and the côte de boeuf (for 3-4 to share). Our top tip, save room for dessert.

Like everything at The Lanesborough, the Sunday roast is very bougie. From the expertly cooked joints of high-quality beef that are carved at your table from antique trolleys to the Champagne to pair with lunch – everything screams luxury. The set menu is priced at £70 for three courses, starting with the likes of buttermilk fried quail and Lindisfarne oysters, moving onto mains such as roast salt marsh lamb and line caught seabass, and finishing with desserts including a rhum and pecan brownie with praline ice cream and a lemon tart with candied citrus fruit and Earl Grey meringue. And with The Lanesborough Grill’s regency-era-reminiscent interiors, this is definitely one for Sundays when you’re in the mood for something decadent.

If you fancy a Sunday roast washed down with bottomless wine, head to Vagabond for ninety minutes of free flowing vino and all the trimmings. There’s four roasts on the menu – beef, chicken, pork belly and vegan nut roast – all served with Yorkshire puds, roasties and fresh veg. When it comes to wine, there’s a choice of Vagabond’s Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, or Dupont Rose to sip on. And if you wanna stay a while longer, there’s over 100 bottles on tap to work your way through. We’ll drink to that.

One of the four branches in London, temper Shoreditch has got the usual trimmings you’d expect from the Soho, Covent Garden and City outposts, but with the first and only temper bar. Located over on Great Eastern Street, they’re still cooking up a menu of tacos, rare breed steaks, bottomless brunches and Sunday roasts in the main dining room, but in a separate room, the dedicated bar stays open later on Thursdays-Saturdays with regular live DJ sets. The drinks list is the same for both areas though, with cocktails made using jams, butters and pickles from the kitchen and a vast selection of mezcal and tequila.

South African-inspired spot Kudu Grill (part of the same fam as Kudu and Smokey Kudu) is all about open-fire cooking on the braai grill and now the classic Sunday roast is getting the SA BBQ treatment. There’s only one roast on the menu but boy is it a good’un, with beef rump cooked over the fire to a perfect medium rare, alongside grilled carrots and broccoli, crispy fingerling potatoes, fondant shallot, an almost souffle-like sweetcorn cake (in place of a Yorkshire pud – it is a South African restaurant after all) and a rich smoked thyme jus. The roast is obvs the main event but you may as well go full hog – or should that be full cow? – by getting the Kalahari spiced biltong and the superb harissa beef tartare topped with crispy shallots to start, and the less beefy but no less tasty burnt cream ganache with malt ice cream & coffee to finish.
