Hixter, Bankside

Hixster in Bankside, London

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, Charterhouse Square in Farringdon

Malmaison in Charterhouse Square, London

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.


Bread Street Kitchen, St Pauls

Bread Street Kitchen, St Pauls, London

I was extremely excited to have the chance to eat at Bread Street Kitchen in One New Change, nr St Pauls, London. We visited for Father’s Day, so booked for 3 adults and a baby (JW – who was 16 month-ish at the time). The Sunday lunch was good, especially the crunchy roast potatoes and flavoursome roast chicken. The children’s meat balls were far too expensive, and I felt we were being charged quite a bit for the drinks. Overall, a respectable 3.5/5 for Sunday lunch at Bread Street Kitchen.


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.


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.
