The Pantechnicon Rooms
There's a shortage of good dog-friendly restaurants in London, however Pantechnicon absolutely nails it. It is certainly the best Sunday roast in town.

Belgravia is a district of central London in the City of Westminster and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, and can alternatively be considered to comprise part of the districts of Knightsbridge or Chelsea. Noted for its immensely expensive residential properties, it is one of the wealthiest districts in the world. The district lies to the south-west of Buckingham Palace, and is approximately bounded by Knightsbridge to the north (the street of that name, not the district), Grosvenor Place and Buckingham Palace Road to the east, Pimlico Road to the south, and Sloane Street to the west. The area takes its name from one of the Duke of Westminster's subsidiary titles, Viscount Belgrave. The nearest London Underground stations are Hyde Park Corner, Knightsbridge and Sloane Square. London Victoria station, a major National Rail, tube and coach interchange, is to the east of the district.
