I’ve never been Daddy’s little girl but I’ll still take any opportunity to spoil my parents. After all, it’s only fair after all they’ve done and are still doing for me.
Father’s Day is the perfect opportunity to treat the most important man in your life (sorry BF…).
There are billions of ways you can do that of course, but my favourite way to say thank you is with a nice meal out…
1. You can’t go wrong with a classic: Sunday roast at Pig & Butcher
A local favourite for all things British and nose-to-tail, The Pig & Butcher is Islington’s hot spot when it comes to Sunday roast and the perfect place to indulge in dad’s Sunday fave (and maybe a Bloody Mary or two…).
The Pig & Butcher, 80 Liverpool Rd, London N1 0QD
2. Too much month left at the end of the money? £10 steak at Flat Iron
Treating dad needn’t cost an arm and leg (+ steak dinner’s a bit of a no-brainer when it comes to spoiling the old man) and Flat Iron £10 steak ticks all the boxes: juicy steak cooked to perfection, for less money that you’d pay for pizza and a free ice cream cone to top it all… what more could you possibly want?
Flat Iron, several London locations
3. Personalised Pies at Mr Fogg’s Tavern
Mr Fogg’s Tavern’s award-winning pies are becoming personal for Father’s Day. The Victorian inspired Pub, Gin Parlour and Salon in Covent Garden will be offering exclusive personalized pies for Dad. Perfect to make it a Father’s Day to remember!
Mr Fogg’s Tavern, 58 St Martin’s Lane, London WC2N 4EA
4. Have your pie & eat it too: Gentlemen’s Afternoon Tea at The Athenaeum

The Athenaeum Gentlemen’s afternoon tea was designed with those who prefer savoury to sweet treats in mind. Think wild boar sausage rolls, mini steak and ale pies, cheddar and bacon scones… and single malt scotch from the whisky menu!
The Athenaeum, 116 Piccadilly, London W1J 7BJ
5. Football extravaganza at Bar Kick

Does your dad live & breathe for the Euros football competition right now? Then he’ll love Bar Kick. Not only do they show live football, but there’s also table football tables, an extensive beer menu and a reasonably-priced Euros-inspired menu! The best place to cheer on Euros 2016-host France on Father’s Day!
Bar Kick, 127 Shoreditch High St, London E1 6JE

6. Father’s Day Il Porco Feast at Bunga Bunga
This Father’s Day, spend your dough on Dad at Battersea’s hit Italian-inspired restaurant, bar and karaoke joint Bunga Bunga. On Sunday, 19th June enjoy Il Porco, one of London’s most authentic Italian hog roasts with all the trimmings. Grab your knife and pork this Father’s Day and tuck in!
Bunga Bunga, 37 Battersea Bridge Road, London SW11 3BA
7. Dad likes the finest things in life? Whisky + chocolate masterclass at Bart’s
Celebrate the day with Dad by sampling top notch whiskies from around the globe and indulge in specialty chocolate pairings from Chelsea’s hidden cocktail bar Barts. Barts’ world-class bar team will provide guests with an hour and a half of tip top tuition about the fine art of whiskey and chocolate pairing, talking through the tasting notes of each variety of whiskey and explaining in detail how each distinctly pairs with the rich flavours of the chocolate.
Barts, Chelsea Cloisters, 87 Sloane Avenue, London SW3 3DW
