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

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.


The Gun, Docklands

The Gun, Docklands in London

After visiting The Jugged Hare and Chiswell Street Dining Rooms) I had the opportunity of booking The Gun, a sister pub. They were very welcoming to us with John William (a 10 month old baby). The venue itself was impressive – a smart restaurant area at the front with a relaxing bar area out the back (including a wonderful terrace area). The food here was very special – well presented and excellent tasting. The service was also superb, so all in all, a well deserved Top Rated Award for Sunday lunch at The Gun.


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.


The Trafalgar Tavern, Greenwich

The Trafalgar Tavern, Greenwich in London

I found The Trafalgar Tavern in Greenwich, London online, and decided to book for Sunday lunch the following day. Parking was very difficult, and expensive (£12 for 4 hours), but I have to say, it was well worth it. The venue was situated right on the River Thames, and had an excellent view. The bread we ordered to nibble on whilst waiting was superb, as was the main courses of roast pork belly and roast beef. My lime cheesecake was also something notable.

A superb, Top Rated Sunday lunch at The Trafalgar Tavern in Greenwich, best suited for a special or celebratory occasion.
