16 best Thanksgiving dinners in London for 2024

While not officially a holiday in the UK, there are plenty of reasons to celebrate Thanksgiving in London (which in 2024 falls on Thursday 23 November), not least the veritable feast that Americans rustle up for the occasion. A typical Thanksgiving dinner involves turkey, stuffing and various other trimmings, plus cranberry sauce, sweet potato pie and mac ‘n’ cheese, followed by a decent helping of pumpkin and/or pecan pie. And frankly, we won’t be saying no to any of it. The good news is, there are loads of Thanksgiving restaurants in London serving up special menus featuring all of the above, and more.


The tradition of Thanksgiving is celebrated across the United States, Canada and Brazil among other countries, and is intended as a way to pay homage and give thanks for a good year around the time of the traditional main harvest. Years on and this pivotal moment in the calendar is still upheld, allowing friends and families to gather together to show their appreciation for the people and things they’re fortunate enough to be surrounded by in their lives.

While on this side of the pond Thanksgiving isn't usually included in our holiday calendar, as foodies, we can't say no to an indulgent feast. We're ready to gobble up piles of roast turkey and huge slabs of pumpkin pie... call it a warm up for your belly in preparation for Christmas. And in our opinion, where better to celebrate it all than in London? The beauty of London's culinary scene is its universal offering so it's easily the best place to scout out your Thanksgiving turkey dinner, because who really wants to slave over an entire turkey a month before Christmas? Swap out the stress of cooking and head into the city to gobble up all Thanksgiving has to offer. Any excuse to avoid the washing up gets our vote.

Whether you celebrate Thanksgiving every year or you’re a complete holiday newbie, dust off those Stars and Stripes (and your stretchiest jeans) and get ready to head to chow down on the best Thanksgiving feasts London has to offer.
