Lanes of London, Mayfair
Lanes of London, an all-day casual dining destination on Park Lane, has launched a two-course Sunday roast with bottomless beer. Available every Sunday from midday until 5pm, the classic British roast (choose from the likes of sirloin of beef or baby poussin) comes complete with all the trimmings, including roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings and lashings of gravy. Lanes of London has partnered with Brooklyn Lager to offer optional bottomless lager, or you can opt for Cava, should free-flowing lager not appeal. Dessert choices include chocolate fondant with salted caramel ice cream, or an Eton Mess garnished with Pineapple, Matcha Green tea cream and White Chocolate shards. The new Sunday roast comes as Craig Burrows take the reins as Head Chef, along with design refresh offering a more contemporary interior. Priced £18pp with an additional £15 for bottomless lager or Cava.
