Where To Get A Roast This Sunday In Manchester

by Housesimple on 13th August 2018

Nothing says Britain like a hearty Sunday roast in your favorite pub. And in Manchester, there’s no shortage of places that have mastered a proper roast with an incredible atmosphere to boot. From the most traditional to the hip twists, there’s always something delicious on offer.

Looking for some new hunting grounds for your Sunday lunch? Try one of these top Manchester roasts — and don’t be shy with the gravy.


The Roast Dinner Platter at Refuge is the stuff of legend — and with good reason. With roast beef, suckling pig and chicken all piled high with every trimming you can dream of, it’s a no-limit roast for a pair of hungry eaters. It comes with a whopping price tag of nearly 40 pounds, but it is for two people and, well, can you blame them? It’s all you could possibly want and more — definitely, definitely more.

Located a stone’s throw from Chinatown and the hip Northern Quarter, Refuge is really in the heart of it all. The area is brimming with properties, like this two-bedroom, industrial inspired flat on the enviable Dale Street, filled with high ceilings and exposed brickwork.

The Parlour

Hop on the tram to Chorlton and see what all of the fuss is about at The Parlour, a Sunday lunch haven if you want a break from the city-centre. This friendly restaurant is updating the traditional roast with caramelized shallots and larger-than-life gravy flavors.

If you love the bustling Beech Road, there are plenty of gorgeous properties in the area. This 5-bedroom semi-detached is in great condition, ready-to-move-in, and full of beautiful original features.

The Manchester Evening Standard once named Volta the city’s restaurant of the year — and it’s still delivering high-quality food and mouth-watering roasts. Get platters to share or individual roasts — and enjoy a veggie option of vegetarian sweet potato, fig, sun blushed tomato, and feta bake that’s anything but boring.

Further out from the city centre you can get some real bang for your buck — and Volta is located right near the popular neighborhoods of West Didsbury and Withington. Just around the corner, you can get a beautiful four-bedroom with plenty of room and a garden that’s perfect for a post-roast lie-down.

Bøck Cafe

If you’re someone who is serious about your roast-to gravy ratio, then Bøck Cafe might be the choice for you. It not only gives you innovate and unusual roast options, it also delivers the gravy in a hulking vat, perfect for dipping it like fondue. You can make every bite perfect. And, as a bonus, they’re also available on a Monday.

Right on the border of ultra-hip Spinningfields, Bøck Cafe definitely has some real potential as your local hangout. If you’re breaking onto the property ladder, this stylish and modern one-bedroom is less than a 10-minute walk away — and ideal for first-time buyers.

Brasserie Abode

What can make the traditional Sunday roast even better? Unlimited prosecco. Book a table at Brasserie Abode on a Sunday for a roast and two hours of unlimited prosecco. Not only is the food superb, they also often have live music to help you while away the hours until you’re ready to walk again.
