People’s Roast Vote 2

Spread the gravy

Absolutely zero people have requested another People’s Roast Vote so I have taken that as instruction that you want me to get on and hold another People’s Roast Vote.

Yes, it is a second vote on the same thing – who’d have thought that possible? Albeit I did actually enact the last vote with a trip to The Alexandra in Wimbledon – a likely winner from the off with their strong social media presence, and a very good roast dinner it was too.

The first step is that I need your recommendations. Please leave a comment on this post with where you would like me to go for a roast dinner one Sunday.

The second step is a series of votes. Last time I held 4 semi finals, and a final – the voting will be on Twitter where I am actually allowed 4 options in a poll.

The final step will be my visit and my review – this will be on a Sunday of my choice in the month or two after. Don’t expect it straight away.

Rules? Of course there are a few rules.

  1. Only one nomination per person. Nominate more than one and I will choose which one to add.
  2. Nominations must be added to the comments section on this page only.
  3. I will ignore any suggestions that are preposterous/outside of London/too expensive/Wetherspoons/anywhere I’m saving for a special occasion like Blacklock.
  4. They must actually sell roast dinners. Yes someone nominated a place last time that didn’t.
  5. I must not have been there already. Check my league table if you are unsure.

Get your thinking caps on – where would you most like to see me review?


The Draw

Thanks to everyone for their suggestions – I was a bit worried at first that nobody was interested, but I’ve scraped 8 together which is the perfect number for two semi-finals and a final.

Assuming I remember, the semi finals will be on Friday and Saturday, with the final on Sunday.

Keep an eye on Twitter to vote!

Semi One:

  • Madame Pigg, Dalston
  • The Candlemaker, Battersea
  • The Red Lion & Sun, Highgate
  • Cow & Pig, Bromley

Semi Two:

  • Hand In Hand, Wimbledon Common
  • Cork & Bottle, Leicester Square
  • Rosemary Branch, Regents Canal
  • Black Prince, Kennington

The top two will go through to the final. In the event of a draw, I will toss a coin to decide the winner.

I know which one I want to win. But it is your choice. You decide my destiny.

  1. Marios Kyprianou

    Madame Pigg, 480 Kingsland, Dalston, London E8 4AE

  2. The Candlemaker – 136 Battersea High St, Battersea, London SW11 3JR

  3. Damn, once again I run afoul of rule #3. That’s been my lot in life.

  4. The Red Lion and Sun, North Road, Highgate, N6

  5. I once again nominate Cow & Pig in the London Borough of Bromley ?

  6. Freddie Collier

    Hand in Hand, Wimbledon common

  7. Rosemary Branch Pub, Shepperton Road (next to Regent’s Canal), N1

  8. Cork & Bottle Leicester Sq. location. Okay, fine, I only get to London once a year-but I’ve been coming over for MANY years and I love the Cork & Bottle. However, I go there to drink copious amounts of wine that I cannot get in FL and to eat lots of fancy cheese. However, they DO have a Sunday Roast, so I offer it up as a suggestion.
    I don’t have a website. Why would I? Who am I, Lord Gravy? I tried making one up and it did not work.

    • It seems to have worked? I’ll see if I can remove the website requirement…it should be optional. Thanks for the feedback 🙂

  9. Black Prince, Kennington, SE11 ( – my go-to roast destination. Pork belly the size of your arm…

Lord Gravy, how can I thank you?

Maybe I've made you laugh, hopefully I've helped you find somewhere awesome to go for a roast dinner. Maybe you just pity me.

If you want to say thank you to me, you can follow me, e-mail me or just plain old send me some dosh.
