Sunday Roast  Lamb with mint sauce  @  White Horse Pub  on Parson’s Green

 A telling observation by Henri Misson who staying in London in 1698 tells how “it is a common practice, even among People of Good Substance, to have a huge Piece of Roast-Beef on Sundays, of which they stuff until they can swallow no more, and eat the rest cold, without any other Victuals, the other six Days of the Week”. 
 Serfs could not always afford to have meat, so it would be a tradition for them to feast (or at least eat a bit more pleasantly) after church on Sundays.
