Highgate gastrobpub in North Hill is serving up Sunday roasts, bread, and luxury ready meals via their online shop during lockdown
One of the joys - and bores - of lockdown has been the cooking and planning of meals.
With little else to do, it can be the highlight of the day - or it can feel like a never-ending treadmill of uninspired chopping, serving and washing up.
Like most everyone else, our Sundays now consist of a bracing muddy autumn walk followed by a roast.
But this week we treated ourself to a day off the cooking rota with a take-out from The Bull. With its front and rear gardens and in-house brewery, the Highgate gastropub had pivoted its business during the pandemic and was doing a roaring trade, right up until the second lockdown.

Now brother and sister Sam and Rob Laub are keeping the lights on by offering Sunday lunches, bread, charcuterie, and shepherd’s pies (£35) for click and collect.
The roasts are something special - a desert island dream of a hearty plate of food on a blustery day. A succulent free range chicken (£40) came with all the trimmings from Yorkshire puddings to roast spuds, broccoli, roast cabbage and cauliflower cheese to a rich stuffing which used the bird’s innards to pack in flavour.

Foil-wrapped, we popped it back in the oven while we heated the silky smooth gravy.
It’s supposed to feed two, but with an extra portion of veg it went round our hungry family.
A glorious sticky toffee pudding (£7) rounded things off. If a bird is not your bag, there’s a roast beef for one (£24) or a butternut Wellington for veggies (£30)
