The Sunday roast is a traditional British main meal that is typically served on Sunday (hence the name), consisting of roasted meat, roast potato, and accompaniments such as Yorkshire pudding, horseradish sauce, stuffing, vegetables and gravy.
What a perfect time of year to feature some of the local eateries that serve a Sunday (or all week) roast for a good hearty meal.
