The Woodstock Arms

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.

The Wharf

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. 

Ducie Street Warehouse

With a spread that includes dry-aged shorthorn beef sirloin, rosemary roasted leg of lamb, a weekly changing vegan roast, a dedicated cauliflower cheese menu, and plenty more, this sexy spot has all you foodies sorted.


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.

The Chorlton Tap

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.


Neighbourhood destination FOLK is known for its mouthwatering fare, including their latest Sunday roast offering; that's beef, chicken, seabass or a vegan mushroom, cranberry and pistachio Wellington. As for the trimmings? Expect moreish cauliflower cheese alongside honey-glazed pigs in blankets, roast tatties and more.

The Con Club

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.


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.
