This long weekend is the perfect opportunity to indulge in a delicious Sunday roast. We’ve put together our top-five suggestions for the best in Bristol, all £B members!
1. Glassboat Brasserie
We love the Glassboat Brasserie, situated on Welshback in Bristol’s historic floating harbour it’s the perfect place for a lazy Sunday roast. You can sit and soak up the harbourside views through large, restored wooden windows. We recommend the chalk stream trout, sorrel, butter sauce and veggies for a little bit of a twist on the classic roast; scrumptious meat and veggie options also available.
2. Grain Barge
Climb on board the Grain Barge for a delicious roast in a dreamy setting on Hotwells. We love bathing in the sun on a warm day (seating is inside and out) and picking out a craft beer range from their extensive range. Sunday roast is served from 12:30pm and you can choose from succulent roasted beef, lamb or pork belly; all served with roast potatoes, seasonal vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and gravy – veggie options available too!
3. The Steam Crane
The Steam Crane is named after the Bristol historic landmark Fairbairn Steam Crane which is the world’s only surviving example and an iconic Bristol landmark! The pub is just at the end of North Street heading towards Wapping Wharf and has a large outdoor seating area, perfect for families or dog owners. It’s also the perfect place to indulge in Sunday lunch with three flavourful courses for £24. If you’re sticking around for dessert we’d recommend the sticky toffee pudding with honeycomb and caramel ice cream.
Bocabar is an award-winning restaurant in the artsy Paintworks. You will feel like you’ve walked into a fairy-lit food and drink lounge heaven, a gorgeous setting for relaxing and indulging in delicious food. Their Sunday roast menu is updated weekly but always includes meat, fish and vegetarian options. Their cauliflower cheese is a winner and a perfect side to whatever roast takes your fancy. Also whilst you’re there, why not also try a scrumptious cocktail? We think the perfect after lunch summer cocktail is the Frambamdelam which is Whitley Neill raspberry gin, fresh raspberries, lime juice, Bristol Syrup Co. raspberry syrup and Prosecco – delightful!
5. The Barley Mow
For a more traditional cosy pub setting we heartily recommend The Barley Mow, 5 minutes walk from Temple Meads Station and Old Market. Celebrating the best of Bristol’s brewing scene, they’ve got 8 hand pulls and 10 keg lines serving a huge range of craft beers from Bristol and around the UK – the perfect accompaniment to a fine Sunday roast. Their Sunday roasts have been winning awards locally and we can see why, they use the best in fresh, seasonal produce, sourced from Bristol and the surrounding areas to create the perfect veggie and meat roasts, we urge you to give them a try!
