The best thing about being in Britain is hypothesising that you might one day run into Olivia Colman at Tesco. But the second best thing is eating a big, fat juicy roast at the pub. The place to do that in Tooting is The Wheatsheaf, a cool independent neighbourhood pub where there’s no funny business, only a feel-good atmosphere, cold pints, and a gravy-covered roast that makes us want to ghost Bisto granules forever. If you’re looking to go all out, the three meat roast with an extra yorkie order is where it’s at. Throughout the rest of the week you’ll find chorizo-packed small plates, quality pizzas, and tarted up versions of pub classics on their all-day menu, not to mention plenty of gin cocktails you can enjoy in their back garden, that’s complete with fairy lights and a big old disco ball. See, we said it was feel-good.
