The Four Thieves

199 user reviews 4

Sunday is something of an institution at The Four Thieves (which incidentally won DesignMyNight's 'Best Pub' award in 2018). The stuff of hangover dreams, you can feast on veggie wellington, corn-fed chicken or Scotch rump of beef, before moseying over to the bar for bloody marys and board games. Hasta la vista headache.

The Clapham North

Bottomless Wings and 2 other offers

The Swingers Roast at The Clapham North is a feast of beef, chicken and pork, served alongside *all* the trimmings, and priced at only £30 for two, it's arguably one of the cheapest Sunday lunch deals in Clapham. Better yet, this pub is the perfect spot for sports fans, airing all major fixtures, meaning you can feast on fine fares without missing a minute of the action. 

The Plough Clapham

458 user reviews 4

Here at DesignMyNight, we reckon that anywhere that serves sides of extra cheesy macaroni balls deserves a special mention. With a list of sides that will have your eyes sneakily darting down the menu, you wouldn't be blamed for forgetting about this place's main show - but to do so would be a mistake. And with interiors as enticing as the food? The Plough is a repeat visit kind of place.

The Northcote

509 user reviews 4

All of the Sunday lunches served at The Northcote come with double egg Yorkshire puds, goose fat roasties, honey glazed parsnips, creamed leeks, rainbow chard and lashings of super-thick gravy. Located in the heart of the Clapham action, be sure to book ahead if you're planning on coinciding your visit with one of the Six Nations matches, as this place gets packed out. 

The Sun

8 user reviews 4

Located in the heart of Old Town and just a stone's throw away from the urban oasis of Clapham Common, The Sun is a traditional British boozer serving up some seriously cosy vibes. Choose from a selection of classic roast dishes or a range of mains (complete with tonnes of veggie and vegan options) and settle yourself in for a drawn-out Sunday session, with a glass of wine in hand.

The Windmill Clapham

1953 user reviews 4

The Windmill is a friendly neighbourhood pub with ample space for summertime al fresco lunches. Kick off a mammoth Sunday feast here with one of their signature sharing boards, before digging into a classic roast served with all the trimmings - with the option to add a bowl of roasties smothered in uber-rich gravy. We're not drooling, you are.

While a restaurant serving up a fusion of Japanese and Latin cuisines may not be your first port of call for a hearty roast, Mommi proves that you should never judge a book by its cover. Head here on a Sunday and you'll be able to feast on dishes like tempura gyoza and punchy ceviche, as well as a range of top-quality traditional roasts. And to wash it down? Enjoy bottomless fizz or wine for only £18.99.

Old Bank

23 user reviews 4

After a brisk walk across the common, why not warm up with a hearty Sunday roast on Northcote Road? Old Bank is a great choice, offering various premium cuts of meat and a delicious nut roast, each accompanied by all the trimmings.

No 32 The Old Town

1089 user reviews 4

Located just a short stroll away from Clapham Common, No 32 The Old Town is a bright and contemporary restaurant with a fairy light-lit terrace perfect for al fresco dining. From noon on Sundays this place offers a range of roasts, expect 28-day-aged beef, free-range chicken and tasty vegan alternatives. Opt for a side of truffle macaroni cheese for the ultimate weekend indulgence.

The Abbeville

1 user review 4

Somewhere between a cosy pub and sophisticated eatery, The Abbeville offers the perfect lazy London afternoon setting. Curl up in a corner with a pint and a plate piled high with some of the best roast potatoes in the capital. In the summer months, the sunny terrace and street-side tables fill up quick - so be sure to head here early.
