Lazy Sunday’s at The Anglesea Arms

I love Sunday lunches, they are definitely one of the best meals of the week. They are never rushed, tend to come in big hearty portions and are the perfect setting for catching up with family and friends – they are the ultimate comfort meal!

With a reputation for well-sourced and well-cooked food, I was really excited to review the Sunday lunch at The Anglesea Arms in Hammersmith with fellow lifestyle blogger, Inna. Under Head Chef, Phil Harrison, the gastropub offers an ever-changing British menu which focuses on market sourced produce and seasonal specialities.


Highlights from the seasonal menu include ‘Juniper & gin cured trout, warm crumpet, pickled kohlrabi and horseradish, ‘Scrambled duck eggs, charred sourdough, and shaved Piemonte black truffle’, and ‘Whole roast wood pigeon, lentils, trompettes de la mort, turnip and black cabbage’.

Sunday roast aficionados will not be let down with traditional dishes of ‘Roast leg of lamb’ and ‘Roast rump of beef’ with all the trimmings taking centre stage on the Sunday lunch menu, alongside a selection of fresh and exciting daily specials for those of a more adventurous nature. The dessert selection features the likes of ‘Treacle tart with green apple sorbet’ and ‘Blackberries with whipped mascarpone and gin & tonic granita’.

Complementing the daily-changing menus is an impressive international wine list, which features big-name producers as well as more unusual, newer styles.

For our starter course, we shared the ‘Tagliolini with white Alba truffle and butter’ and ‘Pork, smoked bacon and duck liver terrine with chutney and toast’. The pasta dish was absolutely heavenly – as one of my favourite dishes, I try to order truffle pasta whenever I come across it on a menu and this one did not disappoint! The terrine was really tasty, perfectly prepared and beautifully presented.

For our mains, we both went for a traditional Sunday roast. The ‘Roast rump of beef’ dish came in a hefty portion – we each had enough food for two people! The meat was tender and juicy (thanks to the slow-cooking, which enhances flavours and textures) with horseradish creme fraiche; the roast potatoes were perfectly crisp on the outside and fluffy within; the Yorkshire puddings were massive and the vegetables came in a healthy-sized selection of varied seasonal produce. As for the gravy – which is vital for the perfect roast – it was packed full of flavour!

We would loved to have ordered dessert and the staff did their best to tempt us with the ‘Chocolate and dulce de leche napoleon, dark chocolate sorbet and pistachios’ but we were completely full!

The warm vibe at The Anglesea Arms truly enhances the overall dining experience and I especially like that the kitchen is open to view and the chefs prepare all of the food in sight of everyone – you can clearly see that there are no microwave meals being passed off as homemade – everything is fresh and prepared from scratch. In addition to that, the working fireplaces in the wood-panelled bar make for the perfect winter refuge and the ideal place to settle for the day.


It’s the mix of high quality cooking, friendly service and a charming atmosphere that make The Anglesea Arms a winner. It is a true local but well worth travelling for if you don’t live in the area.
