Celery Salt Roasted Pork - The Milk House, Sissinghurst

The Milk House, Sissinghurst

We were recommended The Milk House in Sissinghurst, and looking at the reviews it seemed to be a good choice for a Sunday lunch. The place was definitely good for families, with a large garden and lots of boxes with toys. when it came to the Sunday lunch though, it was very disappointing – serving up bacon for roast pork was not a good move in our books. Overall, a nice venue but 3 out of 5 for the Sunday lunch.


Herberts, Keston in Bromley, Kent

Herbert’s, Keston

Having been recommended Lujon in Keston previously, I recently found out they had been refurbished and renamed “Herberts”. The service here was excellent, from being met at the front door to having a dessert especially made for our toddler, off menu (a wonderful Fig and mango fruit salad!). The main courses were large, with a lot of sides (including cauliflower cheese). Also, it was quite reasonably priced, being 2 courses for £19.95, or 3 for £22.95. All in all, one of the Best Sunday Roasts we’ve had in Bromley and well worth visiting!


The Phoenix, Denmark Hill in London

The Phoenix, Denmark Hill

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.


Roast Beef - Country Restaurant at Abode, Canterbury in Kent

County Restaurant at Abode, Canterbury

Claire and I adore Canterbury, and we had the opportunity to visit on Mother’s Day, choosing to have a special lunch at County Inn, Abode hotel. The service was excellent, as was the food – beautifully presented and cooked wonderfully. The beef was delicious and the roast potatoes were amazing. A Sunday lunch venue suitable for celebratory family events – Top Rated!


The Lord Northbrook , Lee in Lewisham, London

The Lord Northbrook, Lee

I received a recommendation from a reader for the Sunday lunch at The Lord Northbrook in Lee, Lewisham (London). We were at a loose end one Sunday, so decided to give it a go. The venue itself was well decorated, grey and black walls / flooring. The tables were nicely laid out, and loads of room for pushchairs. The Sunday lunch itself was good, although lacked flavourings. The fondant wasn’t gooey, so I ordered the sticky toffee pudding instead – which was excellent. A great pub for families, we will definitely be back to The Lord Northbrook for another Sunday roast.


The British Queen Brasserie, Farnborough in Bromley, Kent

The British Queen, Locksbottom

The British Queen opened recently in Lockbottom, near Chapter One. I have been looking forward to visiting and had a chance one Sunday – so booked for Claire, me and JW, our toddler. The venue had a great atmosphere, lots of hubbub and activity. On the whole, the food quality was very good, and I especially enjoyed the cauliflower cheese (as always), along with the chocolate delice dessert. Definitely one to come along with family, we scored them a fantastic 4.5 / 5.


Roast Beef - Topes in Rochester, Kent

Topes, Rochester

We finally managed to visit Topes in Rochester and try their Sunday lunch. A great venue with excellent food – including cauliflower cheese. The service was friendly and attentive, and they were able to offer a good lunch for our toddler. Sunday lunch at Topes is Top Rated.


Roast Chicken - The Bulls Head Hotel, Bromley

The Bulls Head Hotel, Chislehurst

Our second visit at The Bulls Head Hotel in Chislehurst – not as good as the first, but only marginally so. The food was good, especially the portion sizes! It was great to have 4 roast potatoes, but we felt there were some issues with dietary requirements and service. Overall a very good 4.5 / 5.
