The Cleveland Arms

An independent traditional family pub, The Cleveland Arms is known for serving a delicious Sunday roast. The pub was even crowned the winner of Best Meat Roast Dinner by Knorr in 2019. The dish is available from 12pm – 6pm every Sunday, so it’s worth checking out if you’re in Brighton and looking for a tasty lunch or a roast dinner. 

Meat eaters can choose from Sussex rump of beef, slow roast lamb shoulder, crispy pork belly or free range supreme of chicken. There’s also a vegan alternative of roasted vegetable, vegan mozzarella and gouda wellington that sounds delightful too!

The Coal Shed

A steak restaurant may not sound like the place to head for a Sunday roast, but if you’re in Brighton consider making an exception for The Coal Shed. Whether you’re catching up with a group of mates or enjoying a romantic dinner for two, the sharing Sunday roast is too good to turn down. 

Tuck into 35-day dry-aged roast sirloin of beef with all the trimmings, including potatoes roasted in beef fat, decadent cauliflower cheese, honey roast vegetables and Yorkshire pudding. Just be sure to book in advance so you don’t miss out!
