Pub offering ‘Britain’s best roast dinner’ has three year waiting list
20th October 2020

Is this Britain’s most sought-after roast dinner?

Sunday lunch at The Bank Tavern in Bristol has a three year waiting list.

It is in such high demand that there’s no tables available until April 2023.

The pub serves beef, chicken, pork or vegetable roast dinners for £9.95.

For this reasonable price, you also get sides of roast potatoes, creamy leeks, pureed swede, seasonal vegetables and a giant Yorkshire pudding.

Adding two extra courses to your roast dinner is very affordable too – you can get a starter, main and dessert for just £14.95.

The small pub only has seven tables and can feed 40 people at a time.

For this reason, each diner has one hour and 45 minutes to eat their meals before they have to make room for others.

So what’s so special about the Sunday lunch?

The Bank Tavern sources its meat from West Country farms – and uses vegetables from local allotments when it can too.

Landlord Sam Gregory even hunts some of the deer and rabbit down himself.

The menu is often switched up at the popular pub.

Sam told The Sun: "We don't repeat the same menu and although we always have beef we also do pork, some vegetarian options and perhaps venison or poultry.

"We change the starters and desserts weekly so the menu is never the same."

Critics definitely think the Sunday lunch is worth the three-year wait.

Last year, The Bank Tavern was awarded the “Britain’s best roast” title by the Observer Food Monthly Awards.

It also has a 2018 Bristol Good Food Award under its belt too.

A spokesperson for the pub said: "We're fully booked until April 2023. There is nothing standard about our Sunday roasts."
