Hixster in Bankside, London

Hixter, Bankside

We originally booked elsewhere for a lunch in London, but when this was cancelled, we were able to get a reservation at Hixter, Bankside, and I was so glad we did! The venue itself was smart but fun – the staff were professional whilst at the same time being very welcoming. Our toddler, JW, was well looked after – and I appreciated the his free lunch! The roast beef was superb, one of the best I have had. They also served cauliflower cheese so, all in all, a definite winner! Top Rated Sunday lunch at Hixter, Bankside.



Malmaison in Charterhouse Square, London

Malmaison, Charterhouse Square in Farringdon

When looking for a venue in London to take 10 people, I found the Malmaison on Charterhouse Square near Farringdon. Booking was easy, as was the parking. The restaurant was very stylish, with black glass tables, bare brick walls and booths. The chef’s table as an appetizer meant we could get stuck into food immediately. The Sunday lunch was excellent, especially the roast potatoes! The dessert was equally as good. At £19.95 for 4 courses, a great value Sunday lunch at the Malmaison in London.



Botley Hill Farmhouse, Warlingham in Surrey

Botley Hill Farmhouse, Warlingham

We were looking for a Sunday lunch within the M25 and, after some research, found Botley Hill Farmhouse in Warlingham, Surrey. It was set in beautiful rolling hills, quite amazing. The feel inside was contemporary farmhouse, being bright and fresh. The Sunday lunch was quite good, I enjoyed the beef and roast potatoes. There was a problem with JW’s dessert which spoilt the experience. Even with this though, it would still be worth visiting if you are in the area.

The White Cliffs, St Margaret’s at Cliffe

We were visiting St Margaret’s Bay in Dover for a family event and decided to stay over for the weekend. I never miss an opportunity to review a new venue, so with this in mind I found The White Cliffs in St Margaret’s at Cliff. Booking was easy, and we arrived to be shown to our seats in a light, airy room. The Sunday lunch here was excellent, with a special mention to the cauliflower cheese. Our roast beef was cooked well, and the rest of the vegetables were enjoyable. My chocolate brownie dessert was the star though, with a wonderful marzipan ice cream.

Find out how to cook a Best Sunday Roast Chicken

Roast Chicken, Lemon & Garlic

I love cooking Roast Chicken, it’s one of my favourite meats for a home cooked meal. Using just lemon, thyme, garlic, onion, carrots, salt and pepper, you can make a really succulent roast quickly and easily with the minimum of fuss.


The Shortlands Tavern, Bromley, Kent

The Shortlands Tavern, Bromley

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.
