English Sunday Roasts – Barcelona


Those four words when found together in a sentence, in that order, just sound so wrong. However, sometimes, if you are a philistine or if you have been in Barcelona or Spain long enough to excuse such behaviour, you might find yourself longing for a Sunday roast dinner. Large hangovers are usually enough to compel the seeking of one.

Here are a couple of places that you might want to check out, should the despicable urge overcome you:

The George and Dragon


Owned by English folk, The George and Dragon serves authentic food from home (England) alongside traditional English breakfasts, fish and chips, pie and mash and the likes.

They also screen football matches. But if you really want to watch football and eat English food, it strikes me that you might as well have remained in England.

Located not far from Placa Catalunya.

The Philarmonic English Tavern


Calle Mallorca 204
(Between Aribau y Enric Granados)

Monday – Friday
10.00hrs – 02.30hrs
Saturday – Sunday
13.00hrs – 03.00hrs

The Philarmonic serves typical English pub fodder, such as English breakfasts, burgers, curries and the likes of scampi, chilli con carne, fish and chips, bangers n mash, sausage sandwiches, and gammon steaks.

Most importantly for this website, they offer a vegetarian fry up that consists of eggs, mushrooms, baked beans, toast and hash browns that costs €7.50. There is also beans on toast which costs €3.50.

There are a couple of vegetarian-friendly jacket potatoes such as cheese and beans, or spicy sauce. These cost approximately €6.

Other vegetarian dishes include warm goat cheese salad, and vegetable lasagne.

Sadly, there is no vegetarian Sunday roast. 🙁

Not surprisingly, there are large TV screens to enable English people who have come to Spain to watch football and behave like they are still in England. Makes you wonder.
