The Ultimate Manchester Bucket List: The 32 Best Pubs For A Sunday Roast Today

Article Featured Image

Whether it’s a chilled Sunday, a hungover Sunday, a Sunday spent with fam – Sunday Roasts are the mother of all healers.

Let’s face it, we’d demolish any of these babies on any given day of the week.

Without further ado, here’s our pick of the very best Manchester has to offer…

32. The Wharf

The Wharf is a chain pub which is why, for originality’s sake, we’re sticking it last.

But it’s nevertheless run by the Good Pub Guide’s pub group of the year, Brunning & Price – which is why we think it deserves a feature.

Good views, good pints, good food and dog-friendly.

31. The Old Nag’s Head

No gimmicks, no bullshit. It’s just a good pub.

Beer, fish and chips, bangers and mash, roasties, it offers everything a pub should and does it well.

30. The Black Lion

Good pies and a good hearty Sunday lunch.

29. Mother Mac’s

Supposedly one of the most haunted pubs in Manchester, so a little less frequented.

Which is a shame because it is a damn good pub and you’ll be treated like family by those that dwell within.

28. Gorilla

27. Per Tutti

The hay baked lamb shoulder is lovely and tender, served with carrots, roasties, swede mash, peas and an exquisitely rich gravy.

Yorkshire puddings cost an extra £1 each which is a bit cheeky but they’re perfect and big enough to swim in.

26. Beef And Pudding

25. James Martin

Manchester235 in the Great Northern on 2 Watson Street – not your first choice but bloody good.

24. Oddest Bar

A Chorlton delight.

23. Annie’s

Their Sunday lunch is among the most flavoursome. Beautifully presented with all the trimmings and bouncing with rosemary flavours.

Menu changes weekly.

22. Albert’s Shed

A crowning jewel of Castlefield.

@mcrfeast ??? Simply the breast? ???? • #OnTheTable whole roast chicken to share – £14.95 per person @alberts_shed • Roast assured there are a great number of places you can get a fine Sunday dinner in Manchester. But how many of them serve up a whole chicken to share? Served with homemade stuffing, mashed potato, roast potatoes, maple glazed root vegetables, cauliflower cheese, french beans and of course gravy, we couldn’t resist asking for our plate to be topped with a Yorkshire pudding too. No doubt this place will be packed this weekend with families enjoying Father’s Day but if you get a seat, you’re in for a treat. • ????Albert’s Shed, Castlefields #albertsshed

21. The Blue Pig

It has become one of the most popular places for a Sunday roast in the Northern Quarter.

They don’t take bookings so just turn up – although you might have to wait for a table.

20. The Bridge Hotel

A little further out but worth the trip. Beautifully picturesque – plus Noddy Holder and a lot of the Corrie bunch are regulars here too…

19. Peveril Of The Peak

18. The Britons Protection

17. Grill On The Alley

A fantastic joint of meat, loads of real roast potatoes, tonnes of proper gravy and massive yorkies.

16. Grill On New York Street

More of the same – classic and winning.

15. The Marble Arch

14. The Castle Hotel

One of Manchester’s most popular pubs, the Oldham Street hotspot has proven to be one of the Northern Quarter’s big success stories since its refurbishment in 2009.

It’s famous in indie rock circles as the site of a legendary interview between John Peel and Ian Curtis in 1979 – today it has several weekly gigs at its own charming music hall.

13. The Angel Pub

A real gem.

Cozy with its open fire and candles and the landlord is an artist with beautiful handwriting, which filters into the menus, ale labels and place mats.

12. The Star Inn On The Cliff

A super spot. Back in October 2009 this place became the very first in the country to be taken over and run by its regulars.

Going out for a pint never felt so good.

11. The Oxnoble

The Castlefield pub is serving up a hearty roast at very reasonable prices – three courses for £17.95 will keep you full for the rest of the week!

10. The Albert Square Chop House

Reg Johnson’s whole roasted Goosnargh Chicken is carved at the table and served with sage & onion stuffing and it is melt in your mouth.

£13 per person.

9. Sam’s Chop House

On a par with Albert’s and served with a big, fluffy Yorkshire pud, goose fat roasties, kale and mashed carrot. Shower red wine gravy over the top and tuck in your bib.

8. The Beagle

70s-inspired fabrics and woody interiors give this place the ultimate pub character.

There’s a focus on real ales, hearty fare and craft beer.

7. Volta

Commendable. Their Rare Breed Roast is served from 12:30pm to 7pm and is well worth the £14 (£11 for the veggie option.)

6. The Refuge

Sunday Roast

We rest our case.

How much? £39 for two people, or £17 for an individual with your choice of beef, pork, or chicken.

5. Hawksmoor

A sight to behold.

4. Swan With Two Nicks

The ultimate comfort food and absolutely heavenly. They have a great space for outdoor seating and their Sunday selection is knock-out.

Make room for a pudding!

3. Nutters

Lean and juicy beef with soft, pillowy Yorkshire pud is the star of the show here. The place is rammed from midday to 9pm every single Sunday.

2. Eagle + Child

An absolute classic that’s still up there with the best.
