Four fab places for Sunday Roasts







For the second year in a row, The Bell in Alderminster is a runner up in the Observer Food Monthly Awards for the Best Sunday Lunch. Commended for their platters which offer diners a free range chicken, roast pork loin, Alscot roast lamb or Warwickshire sirloin beef joint with all of the trimmings for the whole table to share.  You can also enjoy maple and coriander hock ham hock terrine with melba toast as a starter or sherry trifle for dessert.

I’ve enjoyed the Vermillion Sunday lunch in Rugby numerous times, as its local to my home and exceptionally good value at £25 for two roasts with bottle of wine. Choose from either the  28 day dry aged Aberdeen Angus roast beef or ¼ free range chicken, with roast potatoes, Yorkshire Pudding, roast jus and seasonal vegetables. Or you could skip the wine for a  starter or a dessert each instead.

One of my vegetarian friends, who loves all of the trimmings that come with a Sunday roast, recommends The White Horse in Leamington. Their Sunday Lunch Nut Roast sits on a bed of cabbage, mashed potato, Yorkshire pudding, roast parsnip and roast potatoes with a generous serving of gravy.

Earlier this year Loves restaurant in Birmingham started opening once a month for Sunday lunch.  The £28.50 per person for three courses menu has a choice of meat, chicken or fish for mains and classic desserts including sticky toffee pudding and caramelised apple crumble. 25 November, 9 and 23 December are your last chances this year to try it.
