Sunday brunch at the Prince Regent, Dulwich Road, South London
Book or arrive early for Sunday brunch at the Prince Regent, an handsome wood-panelled pub steeped in natural light and old-school charm. The French chef turns out fine food at tasty prices, pulling in the punters. You can choose from the breakfast menu or the lunch menu. With a chunky slice of ham on a muffin, drenched in hollandaise sauce, and accompanied by salad, the eggs benedicte is very large and very good for £6.50. A decent plate of ham, eggs and handmade, but very salty, chips is about the same price. From the lunch menu, the fatty roast pork belly (about £13), served in a red wine sauce and accompanied by a pot full of lentils is rich and delicious. Veggies will enjoy the excellent creamy leak and gorgonzola risotto with truffle oil (£9.60). You can wash down the nourishing nosh with one of the unusual real ales, a bog-standard lager or something from the respectable wine list. 8/10
