Is the Sunday roast still popular? Not according to popular pub chain Wetherspoons, who served their last Sunday roast in March on Mother’s Day; their decision to scrap this Sunday staple caused both shock and anger amongst its patrons. Wetherspoons turning their back on roast dinners has no bearing on the continued popularity of this traditional British dish, British Roast Dinner Week 26th September – 3rd October, now in its fifth year, this event is a celebration of roast dinner set up to encourage British pubs to serve roast dinners throughout the week not just on Sundays. Our fast -paced lifestyles means that finding the time to heat up a ready meal is considered a luxury, so preparing a roast dinner with all the trimmings by scratch is an impossible feat, thanks to British Roast Dinner Week, roast dinner cravings can be sated all week courtesy of participating pubs and restaurants.
If you are in the Clapham area, or happy to travel, a visit to Adam Byatt’s quintessentially British, Bistro Union, is highly recommended to enjoy a delicious roast with friends and family during British Roast Dinner week. Adam’s Union Roast Chicken for two (£16 pp) is the ultimate comfort food and is served with Pigs in blankets, Bread sauce and Game chips.
If you have time for dessert – after all no roast is complete without an indulgent dessert, then try Bistro Union’s re-mixed Raspberry Trifle served with Crystallised violets, or their scrumptious, Warm Chocolate and Walnut Brownie served with Salted caramel ice cream.
Forgo fast food this week and indulge in something a lot more substantial by participating in British Roast Dinner Week.
