Four of us went for an Easter Sunday lunch this April and had a fantastic time. It was moderately busy and we had a table by the window. The interior is nicely clean and understated, the music gets the right tone, and the atmosphere had that background buzz feel to it. As for the food, three of us had the... More

Went here for dinner (right near our flat and have always noticed it). The food was simply excellent, we had steaks and they were huge and very very good (the accompanying sauces really good also). There was a great selection of cocktails also. Having been past a few times we've noticed the menu also changes regularly so gives us a... More

Fred and I went to Palmers for Sunday lunch on January 15th. We had booked for 1 o'clock and there was a slight hesitancy when the waiter could not find our reservation. This was quickly resolved! We have been to Palmers before, and had a good idea of what to expect. We started with a raspberry gin and tonic for... More

Shame on me for not sticking to Palmers on 3 different Sundays . I thought I might try some of the "top reviewed" Sunday Roast eateries on Time Out..and the result was bitter disappointed. I cannot believe that these would even make an entry, let alone a 'Top 10" list!! Palmers gravy, (which has no thickeners by the way) takes... More

We come here very regularly my brother and I. We simply love it, the service is perfect, the food is great, the cooks are nice, and it is a very good deal. It is simply my favorite restaurant in London. You should go without hesitating a second. Thanks to the Palmers team!

We've been 3 times to Palmers now for the Sunday Roast. It's very good and comes at a good price, especially given the quality of the ingredients. Most pubs around would charge more than £13 for a roast and would not even come close to this quality. The beef is tender and tastes great with the homemade horseradish sauce. The... More

Sunday lunch at this neighbourhood restaurant. The mood in the half-full restaurant was cosy. The decor tries to be slightly above basic, but with stock photos on the walls it's no design paradise. Service was friendly. I didn't go for the Sunday roasts, which seemed to be thing on Sundays, but took the only vegetarian option, deep-fried cauliflower, instead. The... More

I was here for the Sunday roast on the bank holiday weekend. Very tasty including giant Yorkshire pudding and lots of vegetables. I had the roast beef, which was very tender. There was a choice of three roasts plus half a dozen or so other mains. I did not need to reserve. Nice friendly staff. The tiramisu served in the... More

Palmers Restaurant is a stylish yet informal brasserie-style restaurant in Mile End that is a smart spot filled with natural light, bright artworks and smiley staff. Decorated with tiled floors, wooden furniture, floor-to-ceiling windows and plum-coloured banquettes – this dining room has a friendly, linger-over-dessert-and-wine vibe and regulars know the star of the show is the creative modern British menu which is filled with gems such as the queen scallops with slow-roasted pork belly and Madeira sauce; the Bresse Bleu pear and walnut risotto; and the quince and hazelnut crumble with custard. Suitable for working meals and family nights out, Palmers – which is located on Roman Road, has earned an enviable reputation with local food-lovers.
