Where is a good bet for a nice relaxed Sunday lunch? I'm thinking a pub would be good. Any suggestions? Waterloo area is best.. what's the White Hart like?

This place

does a excellent carvery on Sundays for 8 per person. Normally beef, lamb and chicken.

Now, I can eat a *lot*, and because it's a carvery I can always be cheeky and ask for "an extra slice please".

Then you can help yourself to as much peas, leaks, carrots, sprouts, roast potatoes, etc. that your large plate can carry!

Then pile on the gravy!

I am not associated with this place, but have been looking out for a good Sunday roast place in the Tower Bridge area for years - this place is *always* top of my list!

Not near Waterloo, but maybe the Royal Oak on Tabard Street.

I really like The Hartley for a Sunday lunch.

I have been several times and the standards I have always found consistantly good.
Big portions, crispy pork crackling, medium done beef.

Im thinking of going tomorrow now!

Thanks for the suggestions.

Anyone ever tried the White Hart, by any chance?

I think the Royal Oak is great for sunday lunch. They've extended their serving hours to about 5pm too.

Hi. I'm veggie but my ex was omniverous and rated it highly. For a veggie is one of the best Sunday lunch options in the area... veggie sausages, all the trimmings and veggie gravy. I'm not a beer drinker so I appreciate the wine choices here. Apparently the beer good too! Also they serve Sunday lunch til pretty late in the afternoon - which is handy for those Sundays-after-the-late-Saturday-night-before....

I've also tried the Roebuck (Great Dover Street) - really like this place for a drink (nice atmosphere, good music, good wine) - the Sunday Lunch was rated for the omnivores... not so hot for veggies IMHO ;-)

Hope this helps.

Following on from this thread, we went to try The White Hart today for Sunday lunch today but it was packed solid and no chance of a table. We ended up at The Charles Dickens Inn in Union Street and had a very nice Sunday Roast. They do various roasts all at 6.95, and a good selection of real ales.

Oh dear, some confusion here! There appear to be two White Harts! One in Waterloo on Cornwall Rd:

(NOT the hyperlink which this forum automatically gives to it),

and one on Great Suffolk Street, which the hyperlink correctly picks up on.

I wonder which the recommendations were based on!

This thread has prompted me to do something I've been meaning to do for ages ... you will now find that if there is more than one restaurant/pub in SE1 with the same name the automatic links now go to the relevant alphabetised page in the restaurant section rather than one of the individual establishments.

So for example The White Hart link goes to
(same goes for any chain such as Starbucks or Pret a Manger )

But The Charles Dickens continues to link directly to

Think of it like Wikipedia's disambiguation pages.
