The perfect British Sunday means the perfect Sunday roast! And the quest to find a Sunday roast in London is one we hope to make easier for you with our favourite spots. West London’s pubs and restaurants compete to bring you big flavours piled high on your plate and drizzled in beautiful gravy. So, here’s our pick of the best roasts in West London.
The White Swan, Richmond
In South West London, just off Richmond Green near the River Thames towpath, the White Swan in Richmond is famous for its classic roast in a traditional cottage pub. Built in 1787, it’s a fantastic spot to tuck into a Welsh leg of lamb by the fireplace under the low-beamed ceiling in winter or enjoy a roast British beef sirloin in the garden in summer.
There are fish and vegetarian meals, too, and your plate comes with plenty of vegetables and roast potatoes. The White Swan also has a great selection of beer and wine, so you can enjoy a Sunday roast in West London with all the trimmings.
The White Horse, Wembley
A new kid on the Wembley Park block, the White Horse in North West London is a large, contemporary pub outside legendary Wembley stadium. The pub is named after the first-ever FA Cup Final match played in the stadium in 1923.
Settle into a leather booth for a hearty Sunday roast of Norfolk chicken, roast sirloin of Owton’s dry-aged beef or a nut roast with plenty of the usual trimmings, topped with red wine gravy. Portions are intentionally big enough to share. Sunday roasts aren’t on the menu on stadium event days, so check before you book.
The Princess Victoria, Shepherd’s Bush
Step off busy Uxbridge Road into this cosy, elegant pub and you know you’re somewhere special. Built in 1829 and originally a gin palace, the pub has been beautifully restored to reflect its former splendour. The decor is plush, the Sunday roasts are free range, and the drinks are delightful.
Dine on roast chicken with bread sauce, roast beef with Yorkshire pudding or roast pork belly with apple sauce. There’s a nut roast, too, and plenty of other dishes to cater to the non-roast fans in your party. Is this the best roast in West London? It might just be.
Alice House, West Hampstead
This is not one to miss off a list of best Sunday roasts in West London. Alice House is a gastropub that takes food to the next level. Working with local butchers, farmers and fishmongers, the chefs bring you the best seasonal ingredients to your Sunday roast.
Inside, exposed brick and wooden furniture makes Alice House cosy and inviting. Try the dry-aged beef striploin with Worcestershire glazed shallots, juicy free-range half chicken crown or mushroom pithivier pie.
