For a slightly more upmarket Sunday roast, there is simply no better than the critically acclaimed The Milestone. Tucked away in the heart of Kelham Island, the contemporary gastropub is one of the city’s finest, and most popular, establishments. Dedicated to using locally sourced produce, The Milestone’s regularly changing, seasonal menus feature dazzling nose-to-tail modern British cuisine. While the Sunday roast offerings include the classic roast topside of beef, venture outside of your comfort zone and try the lavish truffle nut roast, which has won over vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.

Tired of the traditional Sunday roast? Pop by Sheffield’s premier music venue The Harley where the Twister Burger Company is offering a Sunday lunch…. in a burger. The famous ‘Moist Maker Sunday Dinner’ burger has gained somewhat of a cult following amongst hungry, and hungover, locals. With beef, lamb and vegan versions available, anyone can sample the fusion of two of the country’s favourite meals. A delicious invention, or an absolute monstrosity? You be the judge.

Twister Burger Company can be found at 334 Glossop Road, Sheffield, S10 2HW
