If you are looking for a special place for a Sunday roast, then look no further than The Yacht. We love a Sunday roast and we find going out for Sunday lunch is the perfect way to end the weekend!
Located on Temple Pier close to Embankment prepare to enjoy an incredible roast dinner on a boat on the River Thames with the most stunning view. This really was such a special experience and we cannot recommend it enough.
We went for the 3 course meal with a glass of prosecco and left feeling absoluely stuffed, content and super happy with how we spent our Sunday afternoon.
To start Rach went for the pork tenderloin dish which was served with creamy mash potato. This was absolutely delicious and we would 100% recommend it when you visit.
Annie opted for the haddock chowder that was served with a side of crispy bread. We are so glad these starters were not massive as we needed space for the epic roast dinner (more to come!) The starters were really delicious and so flavoursome.
Onto the main event, Annie went for the pork belly, which came with delicious crackling that was cooked to perfection! Rach went for the beef that was cooked medium and there were 3 generous thick slices of beef! The roasts came with a sharing platter of roasted root veg; beetroot, carrots, parsnips and kale and they were cooked to perfection, the parsnips and kale were our favourite!
The roast itself was served with a gigantic Yorkshire pudding and the most amazing roast potatoes. They completely stole the show and were the tastiest roast potatoes we have tasted, they were also HUGE! We spoke to the chef and he told us that a good roast potato is all down to the potato that you use! We will be using Maria piper from now on if that is how our roast potatoes turn out! The roast also came with a jug of gravy which was yummy!
For dessert we shared the sticky toffee pudding and the White Chocolate and Berry Parfait. The sticky toffee pudding came with stem ginger ice cream and a toffee sauce, it was amazing! The parfait was absolutely huge and one person would struggle to finish it (good job we were sharing) The white chocolate and berry complimented each other perfectly and we loved it!
We had the most incredible time visiting The Yacht, and even met the chef at the end who told us all about his roast potatoes. It was a lovely touch to meet the person who had cooked us the most amazing meal and he even gave us a second glass of fizz!
