There’s nothing better than a good Sunday lunch, and I’d been keen to try out what Tooting has to offer on the Sunday lunch front. Somewhere that’s walking distance from our house, so we can fill our bellies with good grub and drinks and then wander home.
The first Sunday Lunch we tried out was at The Selkirk, near Tooting Broadway station. It’s an old Victorian pub and appears to be quite renowned locally for its food. They cure their own bacon, bake their own bread, and make sure everything is as fresh as can be. They also have lots of events taking place – we’ve yet to go to one of these, but it’s on the cards.
We both decided to go for the beef (I just can’t resist a Yorkie Pud!) and when the massive plate of food arrived, I was definitely impressed! Hidden under the beef and Yorkshire Pudding, there was even more goodness underneath – sweet potato and cauliflower!
The beef seemed to be a bit tough to cut it, but it was melt in the mouth when you ate it and cooked perfectly- perhaps we just needed a sharper knife? Everything else was just how you’d want it to be – crispy potatoes, squidgy yet crunchy yorkshire puddings and a tasty gravy.
I was tempted to go for a dessert too, but I was pretty stuffed after the main course. It was the first of our Sunday Lunch restaurant visits so we don’t have much to compare it to, but it was very enjoyable and we’ll definitely be going back.
