I’m no Harters, but I’ve always seen Sunday roast as a Sunday afternoon thing (2-3pm, although with serving options between noon-5pm). That said, some restaurants can get rather popular and people start showing up for a proper lunch. So I’d check with the restaurants. (Capitalism knows no tradition. )
Son and DIL were not able to join us in the UK because of the increasingly difficult visa process , and daughters flight from New York was cancelled last minute. Son and DIL will join us at our next stop in Amsterdam, and daughter will join us tommorow.
We met a cousin and had Sunday Roast at the Grenadier today
I sort of agree, but we saw a bit direct from Windsor Castle where we were that day, and afterwards in various neighborhoods ( including the 96 cannon salutes at our hotel accross from the Buckingham palace!)
We worried we wouldn’t be able to leave London during the 10 day period of mourning. The train strikes didn’t help.
“Oh wow you’ve eaten haring! Did you like it?”
It was okay, and “very fresh”, but a little bland. I prefer the pickled version I grew up with.
“Kibbeling is good (the fried pieces of fish in batter).”
We really enjoyed that, and the fries from the place across the street.

I agree. Most Britons would regard a Sunday roast as a lunch thing. That said, language can be an issue - many Brits will call the meal in the middle of the day as “dinner” and the evening meal as “tea”.
I’m not “most Britons” in this case. Our big meal of the week, including roasts, is on Saturday night.
By the by, we were away from home last weekend Went to a restaurant that does Sunday roasts for both lunch and dinner. As indeed, does our local dining pub.
