The Roebuck, SE1 4YG

Date: Sunday 18th November, 2007

Choice: Siobhan's
Who was there: Siobhan Angel Ellen Claire Justin and Heather.

Not too far from Borough Market, this pub is very welcoming, especially since it was teeming with rain the day we went. The tables and chairs are all miss-matched, it seems to be a trend.
The roasts were amazing: Pork, Beef, Lamb and a Nut roast! They only had roasts, and the wines were really lovely.
Mains: £very reasonable

Bookings: Yes

The Settle Inn SW11 3AE

Date: Sunday 29th July, 2007

Choice: Claire's
Who was there: Claire, Heather, Justin, Angel, Ellen and Siobhan.
Guests: Sally, Laura and Tarryn

Not too far from Battersea Bridge and the 'glasss house' is this big pub with a great beer garden and rustic tables and benches.
The food was nice, tasty deserts and not too many people when we first got here but the place soon filled up.
It was Claire's birthday so we had 2 venues this month. We didn't come here for a roast, just as well as they did not have one, just typical pub food.

Bookings: Apparently it's now closed, and it has a new name

The Greyhound TW9 3AP

Date: Sunday 15th July, 2007

Choice: Ellen's
Who was there: Angel, Ellen, Claire & Justin

The place was pretty quiet for a Sunday. It was pretty drab too, not much atmosphere. It was raining, and for a Summer day, quite cold, and it was quite cold in the pub - it has really high ceilings which probably does not help trying to keep it warm.
There was a garden out the back which looks like it would be lovely on a (sunny) Summers day.
The food was really good, Ellen said it was one of the best roasts she has had so far! Unfortunately they did not have a vegetarian gravy option so a very dry plate of veggies was had.

Website: no
Bookings: not that we know of

The Old Ship W6 9TD

Date: Sunday 13th May, 2007

Who was there: Claire, Angel, Ellen, Siobhan, Heather.
Guest: Felicity

This has always been a favorite. It's a bit of a walk from Hammersmith tube, but it's a lovely walk along the Thames.
The roast servings are always delicious and generous, 3 types of potatoes, lots of veg and several large slices of beef, and yorkshire puddings - plus the option to buy more! Angel has been coming here for years.
If you are lucky enough to get a table on a Sunday outside on a sunny summers day, it is the most perfect place to while away the afternoon with friends.
There is usually a veggie option but they get a but flustered when you ask for just the vegetables as your main (instead of the veggie option).

Bookings: Yes at the restaurant

Village East, SE1 3UW

Date: Sunday 1st April 2007

Choice: Heather's
Who was there: Claire, Justin, Angel, Ellen and Heather

A bit pricier than the usual place we go to. We wanted to go to the Garrison but it was booked out and we did not think to book. The food was not particularly memorable.
It's more a restaurant than a pub, not warm and cosy, quite clinical and sterile. We wished we had booked the Garrison.
Ellen lost her earrings afterwards which was upsetitng as they were her birthday present.

Lockside Lounge NW1 8AF

Date: Sunday 25th February, 2007

Choice: Justin's
Who was there: Angel, Claire, Justin, Heather, Siobhan.

This pub/restaraunt is upstairs above the market just near the Canal in Camden. Above the hustle and bustle of the market, this place did a mean burger. It's more a pub than a bar.
Ellen was away on a skiing trip and the day before Angel had bought the engagement ring and told all the group that he was going to ask Ellen when he took her away for her birthday in March.
