It is every Englishman's right to

enjoy a hearty Sunday roast come rain or shine and while it's comforting to

have the heady aromas and billowing warmth from your oven during the colder

months, I find it wiser during a heat wave to leave the cooking to the experts! 

In no particular order, here are

our top five picks where we have recently enjoyed a sumptuous roast, do the

results tally with your own experience or have we missed-out on somewhere even


The Britannia Inn – The lovely

landlord is very kind and keen to ensure that everything is to your liking. The

tasty portions are very generous too. Particularly recommended for families

with younger children because an empty child's plate is exchanged for a portion

of free ice-cream and a big smile.

Castle of Comfort – Large portions

in the extreme of delicious food, always a warm welcome and luscious ales on


Waggon & Horses – Our tester

tried this pub in the evening and found it to be as full as the other pubs in

the daytime showing that as long as the pubs are prepared to serve Sunday

roast, us locals are willing to eat them! The meal was delicious and arrived in

record-breaking time. 

Horse & Jockey – Very popular

and very well-priced roasts including turkey in addition to the standard 3

options. The excellent hosts are celebrating their 10th year at the

pub this month. 

Fountain Inn – Arguably, the

finest Sunday roast available at a local pub. Prices are more 'restaurant than

pub' but then so is the quality of cuisine, the size of the restaurant is slightly

modest so booking in advance is essential. 

If you'd like to suggest other

pubs you think serve even better Sunday roasts, then please correct us below, I

love having your recommendations and I'm looking to skive out of kitchen duties

again this weekend ;)
