Hawksmoor at Home

Usually for their succulent steaks, Hawksmoor have entered the delivery world turning their hands to the humble Sunday lunch, serving up some of the best roasts in the city. Head over to their Slerp account and choose from their sharing roast for two or four, and expect to be tucking into a hefty dry-aged roof beef and all of the tasty trimmings. The bone marrow gravy is just as rich as you’d expect. 

Don’t fancy it on a Sunday? Their sharing roasts are available Friday and Saturday too. Bonus.

Tram Store

Old Clapton’s Tram Store is tackling their closure hands on by delivering their hearty Sunday roasts to hungry Londoners. Choose from the likes of their Roast Loin of Venison with Thyme, Blackcurrant and Port; Spiced Roast Rib Eye Beef with Red Wine Gravy; or go plant based with their Aubergine Encases Nut Roast or Roast Butternut Squash. All of these are served alongside the usual Sunday lunch trimmings.

No. Fifty Cheyne

This Chelsea neighbourhood restaurant has become rather a hotspot for diners looking for exquisite food, breathtaking interiors and prime location. While their doors remain closed currently, head chef Iain Smith has mastered a way of bringing his culinary expertise to your dinner table with their new delivery service.

Every Sunday, you can dive into an expertly cooked and beautifully presented Sunday lunch. The Roast Sutton Hoo Chicken, serve with glazed vegetables, stuffing, Yorkshire pudding and gravy is succulent, juicy and flavourful, while the Roasted Cauliflower Steak with trimmings, provides a great vegetarian and vegan alternative. Top off the meal with their infamous Sticky Toffee Pud, with clotted ice cream and milk crumble. It’s an indulgent Sunday treat.

Hide at Home

Steer away from the frozen roast potato aisle of Asda and head to Hide at Home to get your Sunday lunch fix this weekend.

Hide, the Michelin-starred restaurant residing in Mayfair, has turned its hand to fuelling Londoners at home during this strange, strange time and we couldn’t welcome its arrival more. Who wouldn’t want to munch through Michelin-star food in your PJs?  

Their set menu changes weekly but you can rest assured your cravings will well and truly be satisfied. This week there are three options to choose from, but it’s the Glazed barbecued Iberico pork with quince miso Roast parsnips Red cabbage with violet mustard that’s taken our fancy. Not quite a roast but certainly up there for the best food you can get delivered in the city.

Jones & Sons 

Dalston restaurant and cocktail bar, Jones & Sons is known for its quality British dishes and exceptional cocktails, and while their brick and mortar site is closed, they’ll be bringing their Sunday favourites to your doors.

Wash away your Sunday roast cravings and choose from their array of offerings, from the Herefordshire Rib Eye with Horseradish Cream to the Slow Roast Gloucester Old Spot Port Belly and apple sauce, to the Whole Roasted Acorn Squash with vegan trimmings for any plant based folk. All roasts come served with a healthy portion of carrots, parsnips, seasonal veggies, roasties, confit shallows, Yorkies and gravy.

Coal Rooms

From succulent Galloway Rump Cap to Rosemary and Garlic Lamb Leg, to a simple but satisfying Seasonal Vegetable Gratin for the veggies, Coal Rooms has your back where Sunday roast delivery is concerned. All meat roasts come served with sweet orange and honey roasted heritage carrots, Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, buttered greens and lashings of gravy.

Right now the delivery seems to be on hiatus but keep checking for updates. 

Casa do Frango

Okay. This one might not technically be a roast but during these crazy times you can’t be picky. Casa do Frango’s signature meal is tender charcoal roasted chicken and it’s absolutely divine. We managed to get our hands on the stuff pre-lockdown and we haven’t looked back. Choose from a piri-piri, oregano, lemon and garlic or plain rub, pair it with a couple of their sides and you won’t be able to resist it’s tender goodness.

Colette 

Sunday roast deliveries never looked so good and we all have gourmet traiteur and delicatessen, Colette, to thank. 

As it’s the weekend why not go all out and feast on Colette’s whole roast black leg chicken, served with seasonal roasted asparagus and new potatoes, broad beans and leafy carrots, or mix it up and delight in a traditional beef wellington, served alongside gratins dauphinois and smashed heritage carrots. It’s Sunday lunch done the right way.
