The Phoenix, Denmark Hill

The Phoenix, Denmark Hill in London

I have visited a number of times for beers over the years, so I was looking forward to reviewing the Sunday lunch at The Phoenix in Denmark Hill, London. The venue is part of Denmark Hill rail station, and they carry a train theme through the pub (with a large clock hanging from the ceiling). They have a great selection of craft beers available, as well as decent priced wine. The Sunday lunch was reasonably priced between £11.75 for Roast Chicken to £13.00 for Roast Beef. The roast was ok, I wasn’t keen on the vegetables, but the desserts were superb. they scored a respectable 3.5 out of 5.


Bread Street Kitchen, St Pauls

Bread Street Kitchen, St Pauls, London

I was extremely excited to have the chance to eat at Bread Street Kitchen in One New Change, nr St Pauls, London. We visited for Father’s Day, so booked for 3 adults and a baby (JW – who was 16 month-ish at the time). The Sunday lunch was good, especially the crunchy roast potatoes and flavoursome roast chicken. The children’s meat balls were far too expensive, and I felt we were being charged quite a bit for the drinks. Overall, a respectable 3.5/5 for Sunday lunch at Bread Street Kitchen.


Island Restaurant at Holiday Inn, Brentford

The Island Restaurant at Holiday Inn, Brentford

We were looking for a Sunday lunch in Brentford and seeing as we had eaten at Island Restaurant previously, we thought it would be a good place to try.

It was a strange mix between a carvery and a canteen where you actually help yourself throughout the meal. It wasn’t very nice and we wouldn’t be able to recommend it to friends and family. A disappointing Sunday lunch at the Holiday Inn in Brentford.


The Rosendale, West Dulwich

The Rosendale in West Dulwich, London

I was looking for a Sunday lunch in Dulwich, and decided that The Rosendale, with it’s emphasis of being a family friendly venue. This made it perfect for us with our son, JW (aka William), so a table was booked for 12pm the following day. Arriving early, our table was at the back of the restaurant, next to the garden door. The food here was delicious, our roasts were excellently cooked, especially the roast potatoes. The desserts were also excellent. So, definitely a top rated venue in West Dulwich!


The Laughing Gravy, Southwark

The Laughing Gravy, Southwark, London

Looking for a Sunday lunch in London, I found The Laughing Gravy, based in Southwark (near Waterloo). Reserving a table was easy, I booked for the next day at midday. We arrived late, our friends were relaxing in the bar area at the front of the restaurant. They served a fantastic Roast Beef, the very best I have ever had in my life! Moist, flavoursome and chunky! The roast potatoes were excellent too – a top rated Sunday lunch at The Laughing Gravy in Southwark, London.
