Best places for a Sunday roast

The roast dinner is a classic British meal, and there are plenty of places in the Second City where you can tuck into one.

Did you know? It’s thought that the British people’s love of beef, and of Sunday roasts, came from King Henry VII’s royal guard who would eat fresh roast beef after church on Sunday. That’s where the name Beefeaters originates!
