Published . By Lauren Cole.

Sometimes, only the British classics will hit the spot. These succulent sizzlers come pastry-wrapped, slapped into a sarnie and even have a dog breed named after them, but do they have a better pairing than pillowy potatoes? We think not. When you need a sausage and mash restaurant in London, consult our handy guide to do your wurst


Davy's At Plantation Place, City Of London

Davy's At Plantation Place is a bangers and mash restaurant in London where produce from the British Isles reigns supreme. Alongside the Kentish sausages here, which sit on a bed of fluffy potatoes and come slathered in Madeira-laced gravy, there's also a carefully selected wine list to wash it all down with. Found yourself in another part of town? Sister venues The Crusting Pipe and The Boot And Flogger will sort you out at respective Covent Garden and Southwark locations.

The Garden Gate, Hampstead

The Garden Gate is a traditional boozer where food portions are heartily sized to match the drinks that accompany - that's craft beers and premium draft lagers or ciders. As for the dish itself? Expect outdoor-bred pork sausages with a pile of spring onion mash, crispy tobacco onions and a rich red wine jus to take it up another notch.

Mother Mash, Covent Garden

Mother Mash London's menu is offering up varieties of the comforting dish in sausage and mash cafe-style surrounds. Customise your meal with cheesy mustard-flavoured potatoes or bubble and squeak, alongside a choice of bangers, including chicken, vegan and smoked or spicy pork. To top it off? Gravy can also be enhanced by caramelised onions or bacon and mushrooms, if you fancy mixing things up a bit.

The Trafalgar Arms, Tooting

When it comes to the best sausage and mash in London, The Trafalgar Arms is a great shout. Found just a short stroll from Tooting Broadway tube station, this pub boasts a menu that's chock-full of crowd-pleasing favourites.

The Alma, Newington Green

After mashed potatoes in London that are topped with meaty morsels and smothered in gravy? This movie-themed watering hole already has a bit of rock 'n' roll about it. But, once you add in this stellar dish, The Alma goes even further up in our estimations. Better yet, if you order a main meal, then you can get the same one again for just an extra fiver. Yup, that's double the sausage for a bargain price.

The Woolpack, Bermondsey Street

The Woolpack's all-day menu might be filled with beefy burgers, fish 'n' chips and ox cheek-topped curly fries, but our favourite is the sausage and mash. There's spring onions mixed into the potatoes for an extra special touch, alongside lashings of gravy to make the dish absolutely moreish. Plus, this place has one of the best beer gardens in the area, so you definitely won't want to miss out.

The Argyle, Hatton Gardens

If you're wondering 'where are the top bangers and mash near me?', then The Argyle is a central London location that's bound to impress. Upgrade your standard beer garden or pub interiors for a table on the rooftop terrace, where char-grilled Gloucester Old Spot morsels, buttery tatties, seasonal vegetables and a red wine onion gravy awaits. To add to this, there's a succulent Quorn-based option for vegetarians.

Makars Mash Bar, Covent Garden

Makars Mash London is a bangin' institution that's made its way down to our city from Edinburgh. This independent, gourmet restaurant is all about Scottish delicacies and promotes artisan producers to boot. It labels itself as a wee hidden gem, and we'd have to agree. The menu here is fronting a choice of traditional smoked sausage with a cranberry-infused gravy or a rare breed wild boar version, both of which are served with a selection of mash flavours.
