I don't know about you, but every now and then, the desire to have a proper Sunday roast with all the trimmings hits me. It's usually when the weather turns a little chilly, or there's rain in the air, and when this happens there's nothing more tempting than holing up in a cosy restaurant with a heartwarming dinner.
Annie's, on White Hart Lane in Barnes, will not disappoint when it comes to a hearty roast. Make sure you turn up hungry as they are certainly not stingy on their portions, with a big serving of meat (nut roast if you're a veggie), roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, a side of cauliflower cheese and lots of vegetables.
Of course, they don't only serve roasts, the menu has plenty of other options on it including Fresh Battered Haddock and Chips (£13.95), Grilled Half Lobster Linguine (£22.95), or a classic Steak, Lamb or Veggie Burger (£10.95). There are also daily specials and a range of delicious desserts.
The atmosphere in Annie's is warm and friendly, with candles and roses on every table, and comfy touches to the decor. It feels very welcoming and relaxed. The outdoor seating area is clad with cushions and blankets to make it cosy on a cooler day. The owner has been in the restaurant business for over 25 years, and this is really apparent in the level of customer service and attention to detail. The staff are very attentive, and the service is fast.
The nearest station to Annie's is Barnes Bridge, which is about a five minute walk away. There are also regular buses running to and from Hammersmith where you'll find the nearest tube. For more information visit their website.
