If you’ve made it this far into your January health routine, you might be in need of a rest day. We can’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday than in front of an open fire with a hearty roast, so we’ve rounded up the best of Belgravia’s Sunday lunches…
The Alfred Tennyson focuses on sourcing the best seasonal and sustainable produce for a true farm-to-fork experience, and their Sunday roasts are no exception. With starters including oysters with shallot mignonette from Lindisfarne and Jersey, and beef tartare, and mains ranging from Roasted Lamb Rump to pan-fried hake and ‘Grilled Hen of the Woods’ mushroom – not to mention the full grill menu, the food here is all natural, all the time.

This family run pub is hidden away on Kinnerton Street, and as Belgravia’s best kept secret we can assure you it’s worth a visit. Recently reopened after a loving restoration that saw the building’s original features returned to their former glory, the focus here is on good beer, friendly service, and fresh, home-cooked pub classics with a seasonal focus. Typical offerings include roasted dry-aged sirloin, Allsopps beer-battered fish and chips and salt-baked celeriac, all served up alongside an extensive wine list from the cellar downstairs.
