Central London is where some of the best and certainly the most expensive roast dinners in London can be found - though it has its fair share of disappointing roasts too.

These are the current best roast dinners in central London:

The George, The Strand

Loved: The plumpest, juiciest chicken, C.R.I.S.P.Y R.O.A.S.T P.O.T.A.T.O.E.S, the best cauliflower cheese dish in London and the wonderful parsnip mash with mustard seeds. This was just sooooo gorgeous a roast.

Loathed: Nothing. I guess the carrots and cabbage were only good rather than great.

Sussex Bar & Restaurant, Soho

Loved: Everything. The quality of ingredients was excellent, veg super, crispy yorkie with bone marrow a dream - pork and gravy really good too. Just book it.

Loathed: Nothing really. I wasn't keen on either their pale ale or lager, and the crackling wasn't done properly on the pork, and their Instagrim handle calls themselves a "resto"...urgh. Otherwise...just book it.

Wood Street Bar & Restaurant, Barbican

Loved: Proper sexy, northern gravy. Unbeatable vegetables. Astounding flavour to meat. Yeah...delicious.

Loathed: Erm, the neighbours? The yorkie was a bit meh.

The Old Red Cow, Farringdon

Loved: Kale with garlic, one very large yorkie, sumptuous lamb and top notch gravy. Plus our waitress gave us a hug.

Loathed: Three out of four roasties were not crispy on the outside and all a little under-cooked in the middle.

The Old Red Cow, Farringdon

Cora Pearl, Covent Garden

Loved: The place is gorgeous, the famous crispy potatoes deserve their fame, the yorkie was fluffy and the sirloin juicy.

Loathed: Well I didn't like the cushion on the chair, and beer choice was limited. Gravy watery but a good watery.
