There’s no better way to end your weekend than by feasting on a scrumptious Sunday roast and where better to tuck into your meat and roasties than in God’s own county- home of the humble Yorkshire pudding.
If you’re a Yorkshire local looking for a new spot to take the family on Sundays, or a tourist passing through these glorious pastures, you’ll be pleased to know that there is a plethora of incredible restaurants in the region that serve up some of the best Sunday lunches in the entire country.
From cosy rural gastropubs to modern city brasseries, here’s our guide to some of the best spots for Sunday lunch in Yorkshire.
Nestled in the heart of the Steel City, Silversmiths are renowned for serving up modern British cuisine in a warm and relaxed setting, making it an ideal spot for your Sunday sit-down.
The piece de resistance is their 32-day aged salmon-cut beef that’s accompanied by a delicious selection of roast vegetables including greens, Dauphinoise potatoes and of course a giant Yorkshire pudding.
This Sheffield spot has also become a favourite Sunday lunch place for vegans; Silversmiths serve up a delicious pot roast cauliflower dish and if you’ve got room for dessert, you can enjoy a mouth-watering carrot cake made with dates, toffee, and walnuts.
Chophaus Bar and Grill, Leeds
For our next entry we head to Leeds, the capital of Yorkshire (depending on who you ask).
Chophaus Bar and Grill may be synonymous for magical steak and wine pairings during the week but when Sunday arrives guests are treated to a truly unique Sunday lunch bursting full of flavour.
Choose from corn-fed chicken, leg of Yorkshire lamb or even the Mexican-inspired five bean and blue cheese Wellington. All Sunday roasts dishes are served with an array of perfectly-cooked veggies including balsamic and honey carrots, cauliflower cheese, Yorkshire puddings and lashing of homemade gravy!
Wash down your Sunday feast with a crisp beer or glass of fresh juice from the bar.
Star Inn The City, York
Michelin-starred chef Andrew Pern cemented his status as a culinary genius when he opened the Star Inn at Harome. Now his flavours and ingredients have been transported from the countryside to the city following the opening of The Star Inn The City York.
Overlooking the River Ouse, this charming and elegantly-designed restaurant boasts a Sunday lunch menu featuring some of the finest locally-sourced seasonal ingredients. The showstopper is undoubtedly the Sirloin of Beef from Wilberfoss Farm, which goes down a treat when accompanied by some divine duck fat roasties and carrot and swede ‘stump’.
