Sunday roast Cotswolds
At The Wychwood Inn we serve a traditional Sunday roast and have to say - we regard it as the best Sunday roast in the Cotswolds.
On Sundays we offer two types of meat - such as pork loin or rump beef. What makes our roast the best in the Cotswolds is that you can opt to the two meats - aptly named ‘The Best of Both’.
We always serve our Sunday lunch with roast potatoes, a selection of seasonal vegetables, cauliflower cheese and onion gravy - all homemade by our head chef Joe and his team.
Yorkshire puddings come with the roast beef and crackling comes with the roast pork. ‘The Best of Both’ comes with all the trimmings.
Available all day on any Sunday of the year, until the last slice is sold - but do check during the Christmas period because we offer fabulous roast meals on different days then too.
Vegan and vegetarian Sunday lunch
A vegetarian Sunday lunch can be provided at The Wychwood Inn - a delicious market vegetable roast with a Yorkshire Pudding and vegetarian gravy.
Our vegetables are delivered by Wellocks and the market vegetable roast is created in house by our team of chefs.
We can make our Sunday lunch vegan too if you ask!
Other Sunday lunch items
If a Sunday roast is not your dish of choice then don’t fret! We always have six or more modern dishes on our head chef’s Sunday menu.
Often we serve a burger, a vegetarian dish, a fish dish and perhaps traditional British fish and chips.
Always book your table for a Sunday lunch to avoid disappointment.
What is a Sunday roast?
Often referred to by Brits as a Sunday lunch, a Sunday roast is a meal served all over the UK and Ireland - traditionally on Sundays, a family day, but can really be eaten any day of the week.
A long time ago Sundays were particularly special because many people would eat their favourite meal before or after going to church. People could not afford meat every day.
The main part of a Sunday roast is of a large joint of meat, still on the bone - roast beef, roast pork or roast lamb. Sometimes a whole chicken is roasted.
Any true Brit would be disappointed if that joint was not served with some 'trimmings' - a word used for sides and vegetables.
The trimmings would consist of roast potatoes, vegetables (ordinarily British grown ones such as carrots, green beans, peas, broccoli, Brussel sprouts and parsnips), a dish known as cauliflower cheese and onion gravy.
When pork is on the menu the fat is salted before roasting so it becomes crisp - something we call crackling in Britain. This is a delicious addition to any pork roast.
Yorkshire puddings - originally named Dripping Puddings - were habitually served with roast beef, but nowadays many people expect them with any of the suggested meats.
A Yorkshire pudding is a batter (made from eggs, flour, and milk or water) roasted at a high heat to create a sort of small bowl shape.
Back in the day they were served as a starter course with gravy, so that diners would not eat so much of the expensive main course - the meat.
Us Brits still love to fill Yorkshire puddings with gravy.
Have you ever tried a Sunday roast? Why not come to The Wychwood Inn - we're confident in saying ours are one of the best Sunday roasts in the Cotswolds.
