Sunday means one thing – Bloody Marys and buckets of gravy

Spotlight on: The Basketmakers Arms

12 Gloucester Road, Brighton, BN1 4AD

Nothing quite beats a Sunday roast, especially when it follows a Saturday night of one-too-many drinks. You can’t beat a proper local for a quality roast, and The Basketmakers is hands-down Brighton’s best Sunday spot. Being a regular feature in the Good Pub Guide(and winning Brighton Pub of the Year in 2014 and 2015!) these guys certainly know what makes a winning pub.

Their food is, of course, sourced locally wherever possible, so changes seasonally. But you should expect local British beef, fresh organic veg and, if you fancied trying something new, freshly caught seafood. Flood your plate with gravy and tuck into your over-sized Yorkshire Pud - the perfect combo for a lazy mid-afternoon lunch. Being a pub, you can be assured that there’ll be a pint of something local to drink alongside dinner. Offering eight different cask beers at all times, you won’t have to settle for a boring old lager whilst dining at The Basketmakers.

Best of the rest:

Lion and Lobster

24 Sillwood Street, Brighton, BN1 2PS

What? Quirky three-storey pub with restaurant, bar and terrace.

Where? A two-minute walk from the seafront, just past Bedford Square.

Why? Not only is their ever-popular Sunday roast absolutely delicious, it’s also incredibly well priced! Enjoy pork or chicken for £11.95, beef for £12.95 and even lamb shank for just £13.95 (all the trimmings included, obviously). They also offer a pint of Bloody Mary which might just bring you back to life on a Sunday afternoon.

The Geese

16 Southover Street, Brighton, BN2 9UA

What? Award-winning gourmet pub that’s lovingly known as ‘The Bangers and Mash Pub’.

Where? In Hanover, just a moment’s walk from The Level.

Why? This spot offers a broad selection of sausages and mash, but also excels in its award-winning Sunday lunch. It even won Best Roast at the 2019 Brighton Restaurant Awards! Roast fans can tuck into Slow Roast Pork Belly or Leg of Lamb whilst the more adventurous amongst you can try Wild Boar sausages!

The Coal Shed

8 Boyce’s Street, Brighton, BN1 1AN

What? Grilled meat and fish experts with restaurants in both London and Brighton.

Where? Not far from the seafront Odeon, hidden down Boyce’s Street!

Why? Controversially, this Sunday roast doesn’t offer a veggie option, which might not sit well with Brighton’s eco-population! However, if you’re dining with a gang of meat eaters then this Sunday Sharing Roast is an option to die for. Aberdeen Angus roast beef, amazing roasties, cauliflower cheese and the rest for just £20pp. And, kids go free with paying adults!
