Best roast dinners in London

New Street Grill, Liverpool Street


You've heard of bottomless brunch, but how about bottomless sides on your roast dinner? New Street Grill is changing the capital's roast dinner game with its eclectic seasonal menu - and all the sides are bottomless so you can keep asking for more to your heart's content. We're all familiar with the dilemma of deciding which meat to go for at a Sunday roast. Luckily, New Street Grill has put an end to the indecisiveness with their new 'Return of the Roast' menu this season. For £28 per person, diners can feast on a gargantuan plate of three expertly cooked cuts of meat – beef, lamb and chicken which is served alongside seasonal vegetables, a Yorkshire pudding overflowing with roasties and an extra jug of gravy.

As expected from a grill restaurant, the meat was prepared and roasted to perfection, in particular the succulent beef. Make sure you try some of the special brunch cocktails; the elderflower bellini is an excellent pick-me-up.

The Grange, Bermondsey


In our opinion, The Grange's roast dinners are easily one of Bermondsey's best-kept secrets. The perfect place to escape London's drizzly weather, independent local pub The Grange provides many a cosy corner to ride out your Sunday blues. Famed for their superb offer of modern British comfort cooking and roast dinners starting at just £14, you'd be hard pushed to find a better value Sunday lunch on the South side of the river- and trust us when we say the Cauliflower and blue cheese bake is to die for. 

The Grange is also dog-friendly, ably led by the pub's maitre d’, Meryl the Irish Terrier. She’s usually on hand to greet other four-legged guests!
