A winner of several awards, the Princess does an unfathomably good Sunday lunch, and definitely a bit more gourmet than your average pub roast. Offering a good choice of meats with fish and vegetarian options, the menu is a mouth-watering read. The desserts are also horribly tempting; we dare you to leave without ordering one! Excellently presented food in a high-end gastro pub atmosphere. Check it out.

A more unusual Sunday menu, the Boundary strays slightly off the traditional lunch path, offering things like beef bourguignon and slow-cooked duck leg in place of the traditional meat and two veg options. Also, after you’ve finished your food you can check out the work of local artist Jude Nwimo, who curates a small art and object sale in the restaurant and bar.

A delightfully small lunch menu, the Owl and the Pussycat has just four main course options, two starters and two desserts (saving you from the kind of small decisions that give you a headache after a late Saturday night). Set in relaxed, shabby chic surroundings with exposed brick walls and old mismatched furniture – it has a typical Shoreditch feel.
(Starters £5 – Main course £12 – Dessert £4.50)

Situated on the bustling Columbia road, it’s recommended to pre-book if you want to come here for Sunday lunch.

The Oak focuses on “freshness, flavour and relaxed attentive service”.
(Starters £7 – Main course £16 – Dessert £6)
