Oh north London, you most convenient area of London for me and my roast dinner search - Hampstead, Candem, Kentish Town and more.

These are the current best roast dinners in north London:

The Red Lion & Sun, Highgate

Loved: Roast potatoes were actually excellent, suckling pig was dreamy, the jus really grew on me - it aged really well. Great pub too.

Loathed: Small plates, tiny jus thimbles and blunt knives. Nothing about the food itself though!

The Gipsy Queen, Kentish Town

Loved: Fresh, eggy and properly fluffy Yorkie, very good roasties, beef close to divine and thick gravy. Wow.

Loathed: Roast potatoes a bit done earlier, but still very good.

Roast dinner at The Gipsy Queen

The Black Lion, Kilburn

Loved: The gravy. THE gravy. Gloriously thick, meaty and improved a very good roast. Roasties pretty crispy, veg good, and a gorgeous ceiling. Oh, and very affordable.

Loathed: Lamb was good enough but improvable. The pigs in blankets (which were a side) had been cremated.

12:51, Highbury

Loved: Excellent beef, cauliflower truffle cheese was top notch, the hispi cabbage was ace too.

Loathed: Space constraints, really difficult to get extra gravy - roasties could have been softer.

The Baring, Islington

Loved: Everything, more or less. The inside of the yorkie was soooo fluffy, and the beef was sexual.

Loathed: Well the roasties could have done with a little chuffing, and the yorkie was burnt - and tasted so in parts.
