Yeah, yeah, we know you can’t go wrong with chicken, yorkshires and gravy. But have you ever tried a jerk chicken roast? Or a whole roasted goat? Or purple sweet potatoes? Orrrr did you ever think to throw mac ‘n’ cheese into the mix? No you did not. Trust us, Sunday’s will never be the same.


1. Beast Presents: Nontraditional Roast

This menu focuses on the roasted hog and smoked brisket, fresh from the Lake District. Side dishes include ash-roasted purple sweet potatoes, fondant shallot, brown butter and thyme carrots, squash, king oyster mushroom, shaved truffle, charred yellow courgette, charcoal roasted corn with garlic butter, smoked Japanese aubergine and, last but not least, duck fat roast potatoes. Aaaaand breathe! It looks like this offer has landed just in time for Mother’s Day, so treat mum (or yourself) to this oh so wonderful Sunday roast.

Book tickets through Fever.

3.  Sartoria

Hailed as the best fried chicken in London, Ma’Plucker’s signature is their three-way chicken: Buttermilk Fried, Chipotle Roasted and Slow-and-Low Pulled Chicken. Pick one, pair it with a house bun, maple waffle or salad and then choose from their array of homemade sauces. This is certainly one slice of southern hospitality that trumps the ordinary meat and two veg.
