Where to go for Sunday Lunch.


Tom Pressman

In the heart of every British weekend lies the cherished tradition of Sunday lunch, a time when families and friends gather to share not just a meal, but laughter, stories, and the comfort of each other’s company. This age-old ritual is about slowing life down to relish the warmth of togetherness, and bond over plates laden with succulent roast meats, crispy golden potatoes, and rich, velvety gravy. And don’t forget the Yorkshire puds.

Taking the stress and strain out of a family roast dinner means putting on your Sunday best, or something more comfortable, and going out for lunch.
