Serving contemporary European dishes, diners can expect a thoughtful Sunday lunch offering with venison, dairy cow rump, white pork and smoked leeks for vegetarians as the meal’s star event.

3 The Coachbuilders’ Arms, Marylebone

A pub roast that’s more than a pub roast, The Coach Makers Arms Sunday Lunch was created by celebrity chef Ben Tish. Traditional roasts prepared from quality British produce are accompanied by contemporary riffs – pork belly with spiced quince or kohlrabi salad with apples and parsley, for example. For diners who have no choice, a selection of roasts to share is the ideal solution.
