Pizza Metro

Region: Battersea
Nearest Station: Clapham Junction (0.3 miles)

AIL Says: If you’ve always wanted to eat a whole metre of pizza by yourself, here’s your chance.It’s not just about stuffing your face though, as the wood-fired pizzas at this Neapolitan pizzeria stick to authentic recipes using Italian ingredients.

JW Steakhouse
86-90 Park Lane W1K 7TL
Region: Mayfair
Nearest Station: Marble Arch (0.2 miles)

AIL Says: You know what you’re letting yourself in for when you order the 32 oz tomahawk steak at this sleek hotel restaurant. That’s just under a kilo of meat, and it comes on an epically-sized bone. After that there’s cheesecake – don’t baulk at the £14 price tag as even though the menu doesn’t say so it’s almost big enough to feed a family of four.

Comedor Grill & Bar
176 Upper Street N1 1RG
Region: Islington

Hawksmoor Guildhall
10 Basinghall Street EC2V 5BQ
Region: Barbican
Nearest Station: Bank (0.1 miles)

AIL Says: Breakfast at Hawksmoor is a big event, and you might not want to have a clear diary afterwards. The full English is hefty enough, but if you go for the Hawksmoor Brekkie you get a bacon chop, sausages, black pudding, bubble and squeak, bone marrow, beans, mushrooms, toastand eggs. Phew.

Fish House
126-128 Lauriston Road Homerton E9 7LH
Region: Homerton
Nearest Station: London Fields (0.6 miles)

AIL Says: Nothing beats battered fish and a heap of chips when you’re famished, and when you’re really ravenous the portions at Fish House can’t be beaten.

Mangal Ocakbasi
10 Arcola Street E8 2DJ

Big Easy
332-334 King's Road SW3 5UR
Region: Chelsea
Nearest Station: South Kensington (0.6 miles)

AIL Says: As befits an American diner all the dishes are super-sized here: the 750g steaks, the surf and turf with a quarter of a chicken, jumbo prawns and ribs, and the £9.99 daytime meal with wings, a burger, coleslaw and fries.

Homeslice
13 Neal's Yard WC2H 9DP
Region: Covent Garden
Nearest Station: Covent Garden (0.1 miles)

AIL Says: Homeslice began life as an itinerant food truck, but their whopping 20 inch pizzas proved so popular they set up a permanent home in Neal’s Yard. Toppings include very British ingredients like lamb shoulder and bone marrow.

Bodean's BBQ
10 Poland Street W1F 8PZ
Region: Soho
Nearest Station: Oxford Circus (0.2 miles)

AIL Says: All portions are large at this BBQ joint, but you can be extra gluttonous by ordering one of their combos, such as the mammoth platter with half a chicken, pulled pork and sausages.

The Bull & Last
168 Highgate Road NW5 1QS
Region: Kentish Town
Nearest Station: Gospel Oak (0.2 miles)

AIL Says: It’s one of London’s top gastropubs, and their Sunday roast is one of most generously sized. Choose from pork belly with crackling, black pudding and roast potatoes, or beef with all the trimmings.
