Easter Weekend means three things: hot cross buns, chocolate eggs, and a huge roast dinner on the Sunday. Whether you’re spending your Easter with family, friends or having a party for one this weekend, the City offers some of the best options when it comes to roast dinners with all the trimmings. We’ve picked a few of our favourites to whet your appetite for the bank holiday weekend….

Culpeper

A Truman’s pub for most of the last 130 years, the pub has recently been brought under independent ownership and now has a forward thinking approach to pub grub. Chef Sandy Jarvis was formerly head chef of Terroirs, which is a mark of quality in of itself. His style is simple and humble, with a focus on flavour. All roasts are served with Yorkshires and vegetable trimmings (as all roasts should be). There is a small but mighty selection of Pork, Bavette or Delica Squash, as well as seasonal starters and deserts.

Find the Culpeper: 40 Commercial Street, E1 6LP

Blacklock

If you need to shelter from the sun this weekend, Blacklock is ideal. Situated in the basement of a Grade II listed London’s first meat market in the City of London, Blacklock is for the real meat lovers of the world, with a selection of premium cuts of beef available on Sundays. You can even get Christmas sprouts & chestnuts on the side, for those who like to mix and match their holiday cuisine.

Find Blacklock: 13 Philpot Lane, EC3M 8AA

Lutyens Grill

Located right in the heart of The Ned, Lutyens Grill offers 2 or 3 course Roast options on Sundays, alongside seasonal starters and mouth watering desserts. Although noot one for plant-based readers, the menu at Lutyens Grill is humble in size but not in ambition.

The Lamb Tavern

Located within the historic Leadenhall Market, the Lamb Tavern offers a selection of Sunday roast options alongside pub grub classics, and sits on the more affordable end of the price spectrum. The Lamb Tavern stands apart as one of the few Sunday roasts in the City offering multiple vegan options, alongside the expected devilish deserts and sumptuous starters you would expect from Easter Weekend.

Find The Lamb Tavern: 10-12 Leadenhall Market, EC3V 1LR

Coq d’Argent

The Coq d’Argent is a mellow restaurant and bar with a roof terrace, which should come in handy with this weekend’s heat wave. All weekend they are serving their Pyrenees Easter Lamb Sharing Special, perfect for bringing the family together over a mouth-watering meal. On top of this, the restaurant was awarded Wine Spectator’s “Best of Award of Excellence 2018” for their wine list.
