Going out for a Sunday roast is somewhat of a tradition our family, along with many families living in Britain. It’s the heart of the week where the family from generations can get together to catch up on the weekly events and talk about future plans. It’s a time to be stress free, no cooking, no washing, and general wind down time.
Two weekends ago myself, my fiancé and our 15 month old rallied up the family to go out for a Sunday lunch…. Without booking… BIG MISTAKE! It would appear that every pub, restaurant and brasserie within a 10-mile radius of Epsom Surrey was fully booked for 4-6 hours. What was supposed to be a stress free afternoon turned out to be 5 adults all on the phone shouting at each other “I’ve already tried them and guess what?.. fully booked!”
A stroke of luck hit and we found a Greek restaurant that did a 3 course set menu at £18.50. Whereas it wasn’t quite the country pub with a roaring fire we had wished for it did suffice and was a pleasant afternoon. The roast potatoes were crisp which is pretty much the decider for me when it comes to dining out for a roast, the waiters were friendly to our daughter who has just found her feet and running all over the place and the drinks flowed nicely over the 2 hours.
All in all it was a great afternoon – however the build up was not the best experience trying to find a table. My advice – make sure you book!
