The Shortlands Tavern, Bromley

The Shortlands Tavern, Bromley, Kent

We had visited The Shortlands Taverns to watch some rugby previously, when I saw they offered Sunday lunches I made sure we visited the following Sunday. Make sure you reserve a table, there were a lot of disappointed people would hadn’t. A very good place for families, with a menu for children, low salt Sunday lunches and clean baby changing facilities. Also, they are members of Brestfeeding Welcome Scheme, so mothers with young babies should also feel welcome here. Overall, the Sunday lunch was nice and worth a visit, if just to experience the local community pub.


Rose & Crown, Farnborough

Rose and Crown, Farnborough in Kent

Don’t let the outside of The Rose and Crown in Farnborough put you off, the venue inside was kept in good repair and nicely decorated. The facilities for children was excellent with clean changing areas and a large activity area in the garden. The huge Sunday lunch was good, especially the roast potatoes. A place to visit for families and people with large appetites!


The Windmill by Richard Phillips, Hollingbourne

The Windmill, Hollingbourne near Maidstone in Kent

We had visit another of Richard Phillips’s establishments, Pearson’s Arms in Whitstable. So, when I found out he has another in Hollingborne in Maidstone, we had to give it a shot. Sunday lunch here was superb, our roast very tasty (especially the potatoes). It was great that the kids roast was free, making the Sunday lunch really good value (3 courses for £19.95).

The Windmill is definitely one for families to visit for Sunday lunch. Top Rated!


The Dirty Habit, Hollingbourne

The Dirty Habit, Hollingbourne in Kent

After looking for a Sunday lunch near Maidstone, I settled on The Dirty Habit in Hollingborne, a sister pub of The Vineyard and The Farmhouse. The 11 Century pub certainly had character, and I was pleased with the service initially, The roast potatoes were good, as were the vegetables. My Sticky Toffee Pudding was very sweet (a good thing), and certainly ensured I received the sugar hit I wanted. Unfortunately though, it took over 20 minutes just to receive the bill, so not one to go to if you are in a rush.


Browns, Bluewater

Browns, Bluewater in Dartford, Kent

Bluewater doesn’t strike many people as the place to go for a Sunday lunch, but with the various shops and then great restaurants, it is actually quite logical. I found out that Browns do offer a Sunday lunch, so gave them a call.

Overall, it was a good solid Sunday roast, with various different vegetables (including cauliflower cheese). My lamb wasn’t the best value, and the potatoes were not very good. Claire really enjoyed her’s though, so have a read about it here.
