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.


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.


Chiswell Street Dining Rooms, Islington

Chiswell Street Dining Rooms in Islington, London is the sister pub to The Jugged Hare, almost right next door! (you can read the Sunday lunch review of The Jugged Hare here). We had a great time here, the Sunday lunch was superb. The meat was cooked properly, and a lot was provided. I loved the small dishes the various side dishes came in. The venue decor was nice and fresh and the service excellent!

A wholeheartedly Top Rated Sunday lunch in Islington.


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.
