It’s almost become sacrilege if your Sundays aren’t spent having a roast or sitting in front of a open fire with board games just itching to be played with during the winter months.
Almost every pub in London will have a roast in some form or another. You’ve got something to suit every budget, starting with your basics in a super standard Wetherspoons (please don’t ever make this the first place you have one….no offence!) to your creme de la creme, Harwood Arms.
Currently the only Michelin-starred pub in London, and nigh impossible to get a Sunday afternoon booking, unless you’ve struck gold and someone has cancelled minutes before you checked (bloody love it when that happens!), the Harwood Arms lives up to all expectations of tender, succulent beef roasts. I discovered this little gem when I was scrolling through instagram and BAM! You know when a picture stops you mid scroll? I knew in that moment I needed to witness/taste/feel that mythical red meat in the flesh.
I ended up booking a table with 5 weeks to wait, but it was so worth it! When the day eventually crept up on us (who am I kidding, I was counting down the
days hours), it was pissing down with rain and a lovely home comfort was all we wanted. We went for their special of roast hereford ribeye for 2 with all the trimmings (and then some). As delicious as the main menu sounded, when bone marrow gravy and duck fat potatoes are involved there really is no competition.
For a 3 course meal you were looking at £42.50, which I didn’t think was too bad when the beef was, melt in your mouth, fantastic. But don’t take my word for it, go experience it for yourself and let me know what you think!
