When it comes to Sunday, there really is nothing better than closing the kitchen door, gathering the family together and heading off for a roast dinner that you don’t have to cook, and Yorkshire is one of the best places in the country to enjoy this hearty tradition.
Ben from York on a Fork describes here: “Sunday lunch deserves to be a drawn out indulgence, ideally ending with an hour spent lounging with the Sunday papers and a pint afterwards.”
If you’re on the hunt for the perfect Yorkshire pudding, then the next few paragraphs are really going to get your mouth watering!
An independent kitchen and bar in the heart of Leeds, offers a contemporary yet relaxed space to enjoy foods of all flavours. Using seasonal and local produce, the range of honest and classical inspired dishes are what makes this spot a favourite amongst roast hunting locals.
Serving traditional roast dishes with seasonal veg, crispy potatoes and Yorkshires like you’ve never seen them before, right through to Plaice fillets and Ham Hock.
We spoke to Nic at Shears Yard to see why he thinks people love their roasts so much: “Forever in search of the perfect Sunday roast? You’ll find it at Shears Yard, where only the finest ingredients are served in laid-back surroundings.”
Renowned for fine dining without the fuss, Shears Yard’s Sunday lunch is no exception. The beef is sourced from Yorkshire’s Sykes House Farm and roasts for 12 hours, while the shoulder of pork is left overnight to maximise flavour. Each roast is served with foraged vegetables cooked in rhythm with the seasons, crispy potatoes and huge Yorkshire puddings your grandma would be proud of. Add an indulgent jus gravy and homemade condiments, and you can finally call off the search for the perfect Sunday roast.
Vegetarians are well catered for with a delicious nut and mixed seed loaf. Add to your Sunday experience with a Bloody Mary on arrival, and a cheese board before you go. Guaranteed to be the highlight of your weekend.”
