The Sunday roast dinner is the most enjoyable meal of the week – Sunday is the perfect time to relax, enjoy the company of others and enjoy good food. If you want to take the stress out of cooking the Sunday roast, these are a few of the best places in Gloucestershire where you can enjoy a really good Sunday roast.

Sunday Lunch for Families

If you are looking for a perfect Sunday lunch in Gloucestershire that will suit the whole family, look no further than the House in the Tree. Located in the village of Boddington on the outskirts of Cheltenham, this is the perfect place for a traditional Sunday dinner, and for the younger guests there is plenty to keep them entertained besides the food! Children can meet the goats, pigs, rabbits and ducks (to name but a few!) at the petting zoo, and a play area where they can run around to their hearts content. The food is fantastic, and it can get very busy, so booking ahead is recommended.

Sunday Lunch for Walkers

If you want to work up your appetite and enjoy a walk in the beautiful Cotswolds, the Golden Cross in Cirencester is a hidden gem! Tucked away in the picturesque town of Cirencester, the area has perfect access to stunning Cotswolds walking routes, and the town itself has some unique and interesting independent shops to explore. After a long ramble around the countryside, the Golden Cross is the perfect place to enjoy a hearty traditional Sunday roast, the welcoming atmosphere and charming interior, dating back to the 17th Century will ensure that you will be returning again and again! In the summer (weather permitting!) there is also a pretty little garden where you can sit and enjoy a drink in the sun.

Romantic Sunday Lunch

For a romantic Sunday lunch and something a little different, head over to the Three Choirs Vineyard. Located near the Tudor market town of Newent, the Three Choirs is famed for the award-winning wines that are produced there. Spend the day touring the vineyard, learning how the wine is made and tasting some of the delicious wines, then settle down for a sumptuous Sunday lunch in the brasserie.  To make your trip even more special, why not book an overnight stay – then nobody has to worry about driving home!
