  4. Top 5 Sunday Roasts in Bristol
The George Inn

On a lazy Sunday afternoon after a busy week there’s little better than spending a couple of hours sitting over a slap up roast dinner. For most of these top picks you’ll need to book to secure a space, so give them a call and head on over to get your fill.

Where to get a good sunday roast in Bristol

Hotel du Vin

Starting off with our most up-market pick, why not head over to the Hotel du Vin, a long-standing feature of the Bristol dining scene. They’ll put together either an Aberdeenshire beef or Normandy chicken roast with all the trimmings, your essential Yorkshire pudding and a selection of vegetables, but they also offer less traditional Sunday dishes, from a burger with Gruyère to Smoked Haddock. It’ll set you back a good £25 for a four course spectacular, but for that special occasion, it’s worth the expense.

Hotel du Vin is at The Sugar House, Narrow Lewins Mead, BS1 2NU. You can find menus and booking details on their website.

The Rose of Denmark

One of Hotwells’ best-kept secrets, this little pub is nestled by the river near Cumberland Basin at the western edge of the city centre. It has a friendly, local feel and serves some of the most generous roasts you can hope to find. Highly commended for two years running in Bristol’s Good Food Awards, their Sunday mains will set you back a mere £10. So tuck into some topside of beef or chicken with Dijon and for that price, there’s no excuse not to wash it down with a chocolate tart!

The Rose of Denmark is at 6 Dowry Place, BS8 4QL. To book a table, head to their website or call 0117 329 0352.

The George Inn

Stunningly ‘gastro’ and just under a mile out of the city in Abbots Leigh, the George Inn is easily reached by car a short drive from the Clifton Suspension Bridge. Having undergone a recent refurbishment, the pub has managed to maintain much of its local, family feel whilst capturing that desirable bistro atmosphere. A roast will set you back about £15 but the surroundings, the garden (if the weather holds) and the impressive selection of local drinks more than make it worthwhile.

The George Inn is on Manor Rd, Abbots Leigh, BS8 3RP. You can book a table on their website or by calling 01275 376 985.

The Glassboat

Parked in an idyllic spot of Bristol’s Harbour, the Glassboat is a great choice if you fancy eating on the waves. They’ll do you a top rate roast on Sundays, but also offer their regular fare of minimum-35-day-aged steaks, Rock oysters, pork chops or spring vegetable risottos. It’s probably not affordable for a weekly visit, but head down and allow the river to wash away the cares of the week.

The Glassboat is at Welsh Back, Bristol, BS1 4SB. Bookings and menus from their website.

The Rummer Hotel

Perfect for a cold Winter’s, Autumn’s or (knowing our weather) Summer’s afternoon, The Rummer comes with armchairs, roaring fires and a traditional atmosphere. Situated in a listed building in Bristol’s old centre, it’s within easy reach and serves up a three course fixed menu. Not only is the grub up to scratch, but they’re also known for their cocktails if you fancy a Bloody Mary with your beef.

The Rummer Hotel is on All Saints Lane, Bristol, BS1 1JH. Booking is possible online or by calling 0117 9294243.
