The single best thing about a Sunday is the mouth-watering roast that we look forward to all week.

With the sun set to shine on Sunday there is no better time to sit out in a pub garden and enjoy food with family and friends.

Before we know it, summer will draw to an end and the rain will come so why not get out and try a roast at one of these places whilst the weather is nice.

A lot of thought and organisation has gone into reopening safely for staff and customers whilst absolutely not detracting from the enjoyment of dining here. The staff were great- very helpful and welcoming. The roast pork and roast beef were perfect.”
