Sunday Lunch at The Chesham Arms

Sunday lunch at The Chesham Arms (5 Mehetabel Rd, Hackney, London, E9 6DU) is something of a ritual for me, and I don't have many of those. You know when menus say 'all the trimmings'? Well, in the case of The Chesham, its true. There is no need to agonise over whether to order roast beef because you'll get Yorkshire pudding, as all the roasts come with Yorkshire – as well as stuffing, three vegetables and both roast and mashed potatoes. Choose from beef, chicken, pork and nut roast (which the Chesham claims to be the best in Britain, or something, and isn't far off) – all for just £6.50. Join a happy local crowd watching football on Sunday, or now that summer is nearly here, sit in the large walled garden.
