Sunday Lunch in Bristol

You will never be far away from a great Sunday roast in Bristol. With so many restaurants and pubs serving Sunday lunch, it can be difficult to know where to start, but for the crispiest roast potatoes and perfectly-presented plates, try our suggestions below, or read our guide to Bristol's best roast dinners

Dining at The Ox is an experience to remember; hidden below Corn Street you’re transported into a subterranean world that was once a bank vault, and now serves up top quality steaks and a luxurious Sunday roast. Or choose to enjoy your roast with a waterside view at Harbour House, The Ostrich, Riverstation or Chequers Inn

Looking for something a bit different? Bar 44 in Clifton do a Spanish-style sharing roast every Sunday, while Pieminister let you pair their pies with all the trimmings of a great roast dinner, from roasted veg to a big pot of gravy.  

In the beautiful countryside surrounding Bristol there are plenty of traditional country pubs serving up a wide choice of tasty dishes every Sunday, from carveries and classic roast dinners to burgers and salads. Enjoy your Sunday lunch in the huge garden at Ring o’Bells, or in the 18th century surrounds of The Queens Chew Magna

Perhaps you’ll just be arriving into Bristol on a Sunday as you try to beat the more crowded weekends. Many of the hotels offer Sunday lunches at their own dedicated restaurants, or some venues such as The Old Market Assembly serve roast dinners until 6pm (perfect timing if you’re going to see a show at The Wardrobe Theatre!).
