What better way to round off your weekend than with a good quality Sunday roast? Here’s our guide to the finding the best dinners on offer.
Housed in a mid-19th-century pub, built when Islington was a village on the outskirts of London, The Pig and Butcher is a laid-back eatery. Its menus change daily, but roasts are guaranteed on Sundays. The chefs here take their meat seriously.
Praised for its delicious pies, The Magdalen Arms in Oxford also offers a decent Sunday lunch menu that includes ‘neck for three’ and ‘shoulder for four to five’ – perfect for a family outing. It’s also a great place to enjoy a meal after exploring the city.
The Potted Pig serves a variety of Sunday roast options, including a vegetarian dish, but for us it’s all about their slow-roasted Herefordshire belly pork. What better way to draw to a close a weekend of indulgence than with the crunch of pork roast? Get stuck in!
The Chequers’ sumptuous rack of hogget for sharing, served with shepherd’s pie and confit belly, is definitely worth a mention. And if you and your companion have different dining tastes, there are also non-sharing options such as roast chicken with bread sauce.
Offering good food in a luxurious, Grade II-listed hotel, The Alverton is a great spot for enjoying a Sunday lunch with family and friends on a cold winter’s afternoon. If you decide to stay the night, the hotel also serves as the perfect base for exploring the surrounding parts of Cornwall.
