It's a cherished British tradition and the humble Sunday roast can come in many delicious shapes and sizes. Bath certainly isn't short of amazing restaurants who create the most mouth-watering roast dinners. Here’s our selection of some of the best… 

Green Park Brasserie

Green Park Brasserie is one of Bath's most popular independent restaurants, based in the unique setting of a decommissioned Victorian railway station in the city centre. The Brasserie prides itself on being serious about Sundays, serving roast dinners from 12-4pm with the finest locally-sourced ingredients, including beef from Newton Farm (based three miles from the kitchen) and chicken from Castlemead Farm in nearby Radstock. What’s more, there’s usually a market or two in the old station concourse just outside the restaurant on most Sundays, so be sure to have a wander around while you’re there!

The Northey Arms

The Northey Arms is another pub steeped in history, based just outside Bath in the beautiful Wiltshire village of Box, the home of Isambard Kingdom Brunel's famed railway tunnel. Part of the Butcombe Brewery family of pubs, The Northey Arms prides itself on serving delicious food and drink. You'll be spoilt for choice on Sundays, with rumps of Hereford and Angus beef, pork belly porchetta courtesy of local Wiltshire farmer Cameron Naughton, and chicken from Castlemead Farm all on the menu.

Newton Farm Cafe

Sunday roasts don't come much fresher than at Newton Farm Cafe, where you can savour scrumptious meals crafted from the farm's own produce, including beef, lamb, pork and chicken, as well as their special 'Combi Roast,' which offers a delectable combination of Newton's beef and pork, served with Yorkshire puddings.

Lock Keeper 

Situated a few miles outside Bath in the nearby town of Keynsham, the Lock Keeper has it all; a stunning riverside location and huge beer garden, with a kitchen serving freshly prepared British food. Their Sunday menu consists of all your favourites, including beef, chicken, and pork belly, as well as the option to put them all together in their 'Chef's Roast,' alongside the all-important Yorkshire puddings, sage and onion stuffing, and pork crackling.

The Chequers

The Chequers has been a favourite with locals and visitors to Bath for over 200 years. Located in a great spot between Royal Crescent and The Circus, the pub has garnered widespread acclaim for its Sunday roast menu and also features in the Michelin guide. 

Walcot House

Set in a former bakery on Walcot Street, Walcot House prides itself on delivering wholesome, flavour-driven hospitality. The restaurant’s Sunday roasts are not only stunning to look at, but also a delight to eat; options include a slow braised Wiltshire Horn lamb shoulder, slow cooked Tamworth pork belly, and sirloin beef cooked rare. Vegetarian diners can treat themselves to a butternut squash, lentil and mushroom pithivier with mushroom gravy. 

The Architect

The Architect has taken over the ground floor space in the old Empire Hotel, a stone's throw from Bath Abbey and Pulteney Bridge. They take pride in serving up freshly prepared modern pub grub, so it's no surprise they do a great Sunday roast. 

The Salamander

One of Bath’s oldest pubs, The Salamander is nestled between Milsom Street and Queen Square. Sit and watch the world go by with a ‘Ruby Red’ topside of beef, lamb shoulder, braised pork belly, or the Salamander’s vegan nut roast with all the traditional trimmings.
