Cool and contemporary, Dukes 92 is your upmarket alternative for a roast dinner in Manchester. Brimming with clever recipes centred around British favourites, this place is sure to lure you in, thanks to its traditional fare and premium gin collection.

From the three-meat feast for sharing to individual roasts of chicken, nut, beef and slow-cooked pork belly, The Woodstock Arms accompanies all its sumptuous Sunday plates with plenty of trimmings. Think Yorkshire puddings, crisp thyme-roasted potatoes, buttery savoy cabbage and roasted root vegetables.

Vowing for the title of best roast in Manchester is Zouk, whose Indian twist on the Sunday dinner comes with spicy gravy. To top it off? There's platters to share, a special masala lobster to try, and the usual starters of samosas or a mixed grill.

This Ancoats venue isn't just about the small plates (although they really are something to swoon over), as there's a mean Sunday roast on the menu too. Head on over to Elnecot for the chance to tuck into weekly specials, alongside a selection of handcrafted cocktails.

Sundays call for cosying up in wooden interiors, tucking into plates of comfort food favourites and washing it all down with a few freshly poured pints. And it's not just roasts on offer either, as The Wharf has steak burgers and cheese, onion and potato pie too. 

An ideal choice for the best Sunday roast in Greater Manchester, Hispi is a swish neighbourhood bistro that's a stand-out Didsbury favourite. It's £28 for two courses, while three cost £32, which includes the likes of honey-glazed belly bacon, toffee apple pavlova and more.

Think you know Sunday roasts? You ain't seen nothing until you've been to Ducie Street Warehouse.

After a Sunday roast in Altrincham? The Con Club not only has that famous rooftop tipi, but also a whole host of options come your weekend feast. Expect harissa-glazed chicken skewers and wild mushroom arancini to start, followed up with beef, lamb or chicken with bubbling cauliflower cheese and swede.

For a Sunday roast dinner in Chorlton, there's no better place than this boozer. Famed for its hearty offering, The Chorlton Tap has the largest selection across the area on its menu, which can all be washed down by the craft beer the venue is equally well-known for.

From the brains behind Cottonopolis and Edinburgh Castle comes Libertine, the Withington hangout that's serving pork belly with cooked apple sauce or roasted harissa cauliflower for all you veggies. These plates come with beef dripping roasties, honey-glazed carrots, savoy cabbage, a Yorkshire pud and lashings of gravy.
