The Hinds Head, Bray in West Berkshire

The Hinds Head, Bray

The Hinds Head in Bray, being a Michelin starred pub, has been on my radar for a while. We had the opportunity to visit just after Christmas, and I am very pleased we did! The service was excellent, as was the food – fois gras was delicious and beautifully presented, the roast beef was wonderful with excellent roast potatoes. We felt it was a venue to take older children to rather than a toddler – this was mostly down to having no background noise to cover up the usual sounds youngsters make. Overall though, a great place and The Hinds Head in Bray scores 4.5 out of 5!



The Chancery, Beckenham in Bromley, Kent

The Chancery, Beckenham

Having been recommended to try the Sunday lunch at the newly opened The Chancery in Beckenham, Bromley, I decided to give it a visit. Booking was easy, as was parking on the road outside. You can tell they have spent some money doing the venue up. I ordered the roast beef, Claire had a supreme of chicken and JW had the kids roast chicken breast. The lunch was nice, the portion size was good – I’d have preferred slightly better roast potatoes but overall a good experience at The Chancery. Worth visiting if you live in the surrounding area.



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 Margarets at Cliffe near Dover, Kent

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.
