This Manchester Sunday Roast Has Been Named The ‘Best Sunday Roast’ In The UK

We could have told you that, though, of course. Ranking favourably in a new survey conducted by Rate Good Roasts, Greater Manchester lapped up three spots in the top ten, showing that our region is truly superior when it comes to a proper Sunday dinner. What’s even better? We even nabbed the number one position.

Celebrating the win of the coveted top spot, chef-patron Tom Kerridge – who holds three Michelin stars – spoke of how ‘proud’ he was of the team at Manchester’s The Bull and Bear, a stunning British restaurant that can be found within the grand Stock Exchange Hotel in the city centre.

Joining the Bull and Bear on the list is Ancoats’ acclaimed The Edinburgh Castle – run by the team behind Cottonopolis – as well as The Bank, Delph, an upmarket casual dining venue that focuses on cocktails and modern small plates.

The Bank beat The Edinburgh Castle by just one place in the list, taking the sixth spot and scoring a commendable 88% in the Rate Good Roasts scoring system, in comparison to the Bull and Bear’s unbeatable 95%. The scoring system took a number of factors into consideration, including service, quality and sides served – and the one thing we’re incredibly envious of is that the team actually taste-tested each and every one of them when hunting for the best Sunday roast in the UK.
