Sunday Roast and High Tea Recommendations in London

Did some searching and found older results. Where should I take my parents for Sunday roast and high tea?

Currently thinking Blacklock and Fortnum and Mason.

Porter and Rye in Finniestoun is good for Sunday roast.

That will depend a lot on where you're going to be, which you've not mentioned.

After reading my post, I realized that I initially left out the city - London. Thanks for the callout!

For a roast I've found most people like https://thepigandbutcher.co.uk/ but it can be difficult to get a booking. If you have time you can go put your name down and enjoy The Angel in the meantime.

I've heard good things about Blacklock

Incidentally high tea is a different type of meal from afternoon tea The latter is what I expect you mean: taken at around 4:30 with a pot of tea and perhaps cake or scones or sandwiches. The former would be taken later by children in lieu of dinner.

Hawksmoor does an excellent roast. I dont find the vibe in Blacklock very Sunday roast, its more of a Friday night place.

Thanks for the suggestions! I did not realize the difference between high tea and afternoon tea.

To be fair, I've lived in the U.K. all my life and, like most people I suspect, have no idea what high tea is, other than something which you sometimes see people having in period dramas.

Sunday Roast in London

I've been to London twice so far, and each time I have seen signs in the Pub for "Sunday Roast". So far, I have not partaken in Sunday Roast. Going back again, and I am determined to get Sunday Roast. Can you recommend an awesome place to get Sunday Roast?

Thanks !

After chancing upon and watching the one episode of some Gordon Ramsay kitchen/restaurant rescue show a decade+ ago, my wife and I decided we'd avoid such.

You should be looking for a place that has unlimited refills of all roast items and sides. Outside of the posh places this is pretty standard and there are only so many ways to make a Sunday roast.

Be sure to get the crackling. That is yum!!
