Easter 2023 in the Peak District Easter 2023 will soon be upon us, so what’s…
Sunday lunch in the Peak District National Park
Sunday lunch in the Peak District National Park. The nights are drawing in and autumn and winter walks are on the way. The perfect accompaniment to any weekend walk is surely a great Sunday roast.
Here are a few to try this season.
The Merchants Yard, Tideswell
According to Google Reviews, the Merchants Yard on St Johns Road in Tideswell is the number one place to get a roast dinner, with all the trimmings. So, what’s on offer? You can choose between beef, chicken, pork or nut roast to be carved fresh at the table. All the trimmings include roast potatoes, homemade Yorkshire puddings, a selection of seasonal vegetables and lashings of gravy. Desserts include treacle tart, spiced pear, stem ginger ice cream, white chocolate cheesecake and plum jelly, poached plum, and mulled berry sorbet.
Bank House, Hathersage
Bank House is nestled in the beautiful village of Hathersage in The Peak District National Park. Formerly a historic bank, now an award-winning contemporary restaurant and cocktail bar, Bank House offers fresh locally sourced seasonal produce and the finest tipples from Europe and beyond.
On the Sunday lunch menu, you’ll find nut roast, loin of pork, Derbyshire roast beef, roast lamb and Sunday sirloin. Accompaniments include cauliflower cheese, creamed cabbage, braised red cabbage and of course, roast potatoes.
Red Lion at the Peak Edge Hotel
Nestled on the edge of the beautiful Peak District National Park, the historic Red Lion restaurant boasts a warm, friendly, relaxed atmosphere serving a fresh and local menu. Furthermore, their eggs are delivered directly from their owner’s farm Walton Lodge, and their bread is baked daily in-house.
On Sundays, it’s all about the Walton Lodge beef and lamb. For vegetarians, there is a nut roast. And, every roast is joined by roast potatoes, cauliflower cheese, spiced red cabbage, Yorkshire pudding and gravy. In addition, if you have room for dessert, try the sticky toffee pudding, whiskey and dark chocolate cremieux, vanilla panna cotta or local Derbyshire cheeses.
The Old Dog, Thorpe
Visiting Dovedale for the stepping stones or walking Thorpe Cloud? The Old Dog offers local, unfussy quality food, drinks and service. Its team extends out to suppliers with local butchers, multiple brewers, bakers and even one of its junior chefs producing his own bacon for the pub. On Sundays, you can expect braised feather blade of beef and slow-roasted herb stuffed pork belly. In addition, every Sunday roast is served with creamed potato, roasted carrots, cauliflower cheese, green beans and extra gravy. There’s no nut roast here. Instead, how delicious does this sound? Roasted hispi cabbage served with garlic and thyme potatoes, sage and onion stuffing and vegan red wine gravy.
