Food: Brighton pubs still doing Sunday Roasts

Having a Sunday Roast is a Brighton institution. Here are some of the best pubs still offering all the trimmings in lockdown.

Live, laugh, Sunday Roast, that’s what the say. Pub roasts are as integral to Brighton living as air is to our general survival, and some wonderfully lovely pubs are still offering up potato-filled, gravy-laden delights even in lockdown.

The Roundhill – Ditching Rd – Full details and order HERE

The winner of “Brighton’s best roast” and completely vegan, The Roundhill Sunday service has become a thing of legend. The pub is offering finish-at-home roasts for collection between 12:30-15:30 on Sundays, and allows a choice between: It’s famous nut roast, GF nut roast, minted seitan loin, kids versions of the above and a whole raft of wonderful sides.

With demand always high, these must be booked before midday on the Saturday, so if you’re reading this after that point, you better get planning for next week. 

Preoder details are live on The Roundhill Website, so keep a keen eye there, and on the pub’s social media accounts to be first for next Sunday. 

Sidewinder, Upper St James’ Street – Full details and order HERE

Arguably the best pub in all of BN2, Sidewinder has knocked its at-home roasts down to £10, which considering just how brilliant they are, is an absolute steal.

The pub is offering: Beef brisket, mushroom wellington, and slow roast pork belly for its mains; and extra cauliflower cheese and pigs in blankets on the side if you are so inclined.

Pretend you’re in the best pub garden in town, slamming down beers and chinning a roast, all from the comfort of your own home, and all for a tenner. Sounds like a winner to us.

Foundry, Foundry Street – Full details and order HERE

If all that click and collect seems a bit at odds with your lazy Sunday plans, Foundry is offering its roast dinners on Uber Eats, so you can get them literally, properly straight to your door.

The kitchen is offering: Sussex leg of lamb, pork loin, Sussex beef sirloin, free range Norfolk chicken, and a vegan roast pumpkin, chestnut roast that we personally believe to be in the top two vegan roasts in town.

The pub also offers its wonderful Asian Fusion menu during the week, so once you’re suckered in by the brilliant roast offering, you can pop back for that to tide you over on the other agonising roast-less days of the week.
