Roast Turkey - Ye Olde Greene Manne, Rickmansworth

Ye Olde Greene Manne, Rickmansworth

We were visiting friends in north London and decided to pop out for Sunday lunch in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire. Ye Olde Greene Manne is part of the Vintage Inns collection of venues and is situated in across a heath. The venue was good for children, and I really liked the decor. Unfortunately, the food was very average, but it would be ok to visit if you lived close by,



Roast Beef - The Oak in Bromley, Kent

The Oak, Bromley

We had eaten at The Oak a couple of time previously, but we didn’t manage to review the Sunday lunch. For Easter Sunday, 8 of us decided to visit for a roast. Our booking was just after they had received a table of 20, so the food was understandably slower than usual. The Sunday lunch was quite nice, unfortunately the desserts were a bit of a let down. Overall, a family friendly pub to go if you are local to the area.



Hotel Du Vin, Tunbridge Wells in Kent

Hotel Du Vin, Tunbridge Wells

I had been recommended the Hotel du Vin in Tunbridge Wells for Sunday lunch, so I booked up when we were at a loose end. The venue was smart, with great service. On the most part, the meal was good value – £24.95 for a 3 course Sunday lunch and £9.95 for a child’s meal. The market table was immense, so much choice and definitely meant hungrier guests could get their moneys worth! The lunch was delicious, as was dessert. Overall, a Top Rated Sunday lunch for Hotel du Vin.

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.


Chapters, Blackheath in Greenwich, London

Chapters, Blackheath

Having reviewed their sister venue, it would have been rude not to visit Chapters in Blackheath, Greenwich, and I am very glad we did! Whilst not as formal as Chapter One, it was still a very smart and professional venue, providing an excellent Sunday lunch – the roast beef was delicious, as were the potatoes and Yorkshire pudding. Definitely worth travelling to visit – a Top Rated award!
