The Best Sunday Roast in London

Here at Greene King, we reckon there’s no better way to spend a Sunday in London than gathered around a table with your nearest and dearest tucking into a hearty roast. In a city as vibrant, diverse, and yes, often hectic as the capital, our pubs in London are local sanctuaries of tradition and taste, offering a Sunday lunch that brings everyone together.

From the historic Tower of London to the leafy streets of Greenwich, there’s no shortage of things to see, do and experience in London. Whether you’re planning to explore the inspiring museums and galleries of Kensington, soak up the buzz of Premier League footy at one of the city’s major clubs, amble through the serenity of Regents Park, or find the perfect bouquet of flowers at Columbia Road Market, you’re never too far from a Greene King pub to make an adventure—packed Sunday even better.

Sunday Roasts Near You

You’ll find many unique Greene King pubs dotted around the city, from the 300-year old Museum Tavern in Bloomsbury, to the Grade II listed Camden Head in the heart of Islington. Not only are our pubs bursting with character and stocked with a cracking selection of lagers, ales, spirits, and non—alcoholic drinks, but they also make a pretty epic Sunday roast, if we do say so ourselves.  After a day filled with London's unmatched sights and sounds, what could be more rewarding than bringing the family and settling down in one of our historic, charming pubs for a delicious Sunday dinner? 

The Swan — The Ultimate Central Stopping Point for a Tasty Sunday Roast

Just a stone’s throw away from the bustling Oxford Street and Regent Street, and even closer to Theatreland, is the Swan. This gem of a pub has a history that goes back around 300 years, but these days is just as well known for its exceptional Sunday roast. It's the ideal spot to relax and enjoy a meal after exploring the city or before a theatre show.

On Sundays, The Swan really shines with its roast menu. You've got choices like tender Beef Sirloin, juicy Roasted Half Chicken with stuffing, and a hearty Nut Roast Wellington for the vegetarians in your crew. All served with those all-important sides: crispy roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, seasoned greens, and creamy cauliflower cheese, all brought together with a rich gravy. Kids aren’t left out either, with smaller portions of Beef Sirloin and Roasted Half Chicken available, making it easy for the whole family to dig into a comforting Sunday meal while in the heart of the capital.

Camden Head — A Roast the Family Can Enjoy

Built in 1849 in Islington, Camden Head sits among the vibrant buzz of Camden Passage. After a morning spent exploring the stalls of The Stables Market or venturing along the banks of Regents Canal, there are few better places to refuel and recharge with a tasty Sunday lunch.

The menu features favourites like the 28 Day Aged Sirloin of Beef, Roasted Half Chicken, and a vegetarian Nut Roast Wellington. Each comes with all the fixings: roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, and fresh veggies, all drenched in rich gravy. It’s a straightforward, satisfying meal in a typically Victorian pub that’s been welcoming families for generations. Drop by with your loved ones for a no—fuss, delicious end to the week.

Museum Tavern — Taste Our Amazing Sunday Roast

One to delight both roast dinner fans and the literary buffs, Museum Tavern has been a popular drinking spot in Bloomsbury since the early 18th century and counts Karl Marx and Arthur Conan Doyle among its list of gifted writers and thinkers who’ve visited. The pub was even immortalised in Conan Doyle’ Sherlock Holmes short story, ‘The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle’.

But it's not just the rich history that makes Museum Tavern stand out. The pub’s Sunday roast is something of a legend itself. With options like 28 Day Aged Sirloin of Beef, Roasted Half Chicken, and Nut Roast Wellington, it’s all about choice and layer upon layer of flavour. Accompanied by crisp, fluffy roast potatoes, golden Yorkshire pudding, a charred Hispi cabbage wedge, sweet roasted carrots, creamy cauliflower cheese, and all smothered in a rich, savoury gravy, it's a feast fit for all.
