Some of the best Sunday Roasts in Sheffield

Is there anything better than a good old hearty roast dinner? Whether you are a student who has been deprived of your mum’s roast since coming to uni, or you just fancy a Sunday treat, we have scoured the streets of Sheffield to find you the best Roast Dinners this city has to offer.

Sunday dinner, that means ‘lunch’ if you’re from outside Yorkshire.


Amongst the classic former factories and the newly built university buildings, Arundel Street is a buzzing area of the city, and within it is a multi-award winning locally run restaurant called Silversmiths. Perfectly prepared Yorkshire grub accompanied by good old Yorkshire hospitality. One overarching feeling that we love about Silversmiths is that with every plate of food you eat, the chances are you’re giving a local butcher, a local farmer or a fishmonger a reason to get up in the morning, which makes every time there that little bit more special.

Silversmiths doesn’t mess around with the British Classic. Locally sourced meat, Yorkshire puddings, roasted vegetables. What more could you want? Their Locally Sourced Roast Sirloin of Beef is an absolute winner however they also offer a fish and vegetarian option catering for all. Silversmiths is much more than the just great food, we must pay homage to the experience as a whole.

Address: 111 Arundel Street, Sheffield, S1 2NT
Offers: 1. Spend over £12 on food at lunch and get 20% off your food bill.
2. Buy any patisserie/cake and get a hot drink for £1.50

The Old House

Right in the heart of the hipster-capital of Sheffield, Division Street, this place is a classic pub! The Old House is an easy-going, laid-back type of establishment offering delicious homemade, locally sourced food and a wide selection of beers and ales to wash it all down with. They offer a fabulous Sunday lunch with choices of topside of beef, Moss Valley lamb or a vegetarian alternative with all the trimmings to stoke you up for the week ahead! They describe themselves as “No pretence, just good drinks, good food and nice people.” The way that a Sunday afternoon should be spent.

The Milestone

Now this place is fancy. No oxo gravy in sight around here! Beautifully cooked food, excellent service- no surprise that they have such a great reputation. The Milestone, tucked away in the heart of Kelham Island, is one of the most exclusive eateries in our fair city. It has evolved over the years from a sports bar serving up pizza and tapas, to a critically acclaimed gastro-bar with culinary finesse. After woofing down your roast dinner that will “stir up memories and excite your taste buds”, move onto some of the finest coffee Sheffield has to offer supplied by our buddies at Craft and Dough. This place is not one to be missed, some of the finest food in the city, perfect to treat the family to on a Sunday afternoon.

The Beer Engine

For a start The Beer Engine prides itself on an ever changing and vast selection of beer, gin and whiskey, but it turns out they do a damn good Sunday roast. What cant they do?! This is a proper Northern pub that appreciates good food, good beer and most of all good company. These guys are some of the friendliest staff you will come across. With ‘proper’ roasts and veggie and vegan versions, you can enjoy your food that according to the owner aims to compliment the wide array of beers.

Devonshire Cat

Another Sheffield favourite that takes serious pride in its love of beer. There seems to be a bit of a theme running here. Us Sheffield folk sure do love our beer! The Dev Cat prides itself on using locally sourced produce to create a hearty yet fresh Sunday roast for you. Chicken thighs roasted in Abbeydale Heathen Pale ale, served on a broth of sautéed savoy cabbage, baby turnips and wild mushrooms are a winter warming must have.

They have a brand new Sunday Lunch menu with a great selection of meats and vegetarian options and also a kids option to make sure that all the family are catered for. This place strives for excellence, and that is clear in the quality of food, the presentation and the friendly yet professional customer service.

The Lescar

The Lescar is always a hive of activity on Sharrowvale Road, with quiz night on Monday, Jazz night on Wednesday and the famous Comedy Club on Thursday. After a long week of entertainment, what better way to relax than tuck into one of the many options on the Sunday Roast menu. A classic contemporary menu that caters for all, however we must point out the mammoth meat-fest sharer that you should totally get involved with. 21-day aged sirloin beef, Shropshire chicken, orange & whisky glazed gammon, pigs in blankets, beef dripping roast potatoes, bread sauce and gingerbread stuffing, served with a red wine jus. Now if that doesn’t call for a Sunday nap, then I don’t know what will. The Lescar is a super-friendly environment with lovely staff and a homely decor. Be sure to give it a try.
