Cosy, comfy and, most importantly, the ultimate cure for a hangover, Sunday roasts are an institution in London.
Thick slabs of meat served with roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings, veg and lashings of gravy, there really is nothing better to eat at the end of the week.
Recent polling found that a whopping 40 per cent of Brits enjoy a roast dinner every week.
But there remains a big divide over the most popular choice of meat.
More than a quarter (26 per cent) of respondents prefer chicken with their Sunday lunch compared to 25 per cent who opt for the beef.
Lamb came in at third place, while turkey, pork and nut roast, all fell below 10 per cent of the vote each.
With that in mind, we have rounded up the best Sunday roast spots in London.
From a cosy lunch by the fire at The Chelsea Pig to a special occasion at The Colony Grill Room in Mayfair, we have you covered for all your weekend needs.
