Spend your Sunday indulging in one of these delicious roast dinners.

One of the best things about the UK is, arguably, a good old roast dinner. Traditionally eaten on a Sunday - but just as yummy on any day of the week - there’s nothing like catching up with loved ones over a Yorkshire pudding (or two). We’ve been on the hunt for the best Sunday lunches in Birmingham and have given our top five below. Why not head to a secret bar afterwards for a proper Sunday Funday?

The Clifden

Found on the edge of the Jewellery Quarter, is renowned for its award-winning Sunday roasts. Served 12-8pm, The Clifden offers many choices for its Sunday lunch. From crispy pork belly to succulent chicken supreme, as well as a vegetarian and vegan option, this roast is not to be missed. Add in a craft beer from local Brummy brewers and you’re all set. The Clifden boasts a quirky outdoor area armed with a ping pong table, as well as various entertainment throughout the week, too.

  • Vegetarian option:
  • Price: £10.95-£13.95
  • Distance from station: 8-minute walk from Jewellery Quarter station, 15-minutes from Snow Hill or 23-minutes from Birmingham New Street.
  • Taking safety measures:

Hotel Du Vin

A fab option if you’re looking to treat yourself – Hotel Du Vin takes Sunday lunching to the next level.  Enjoy traditional Sunday lunch mixed with French favourites - choose from two or three courses and get prêt-à-manger. With more of a meat-focused menu, we don’t recommend for vegetarians. But whilst Hotel Du Vin lacks veggie options, there’s loads of incredible choices if you like your fish and meat. With an up-market vibe, this is our top recommendation if you’re looking for an excuse to dress up, add a cheeky tipple and indulge. You deserve it!

  • Vegetarian option: Limited
  • Price: £19.95-£24.95
  • Distance from station: 2-minute walk from Snow Hill, 10-minutes from New Street and Moor Street.
  • Taking safety measures:

The Old Crown

One pub that always gets mentioned if you ask locals where to go for a Sunday roast in Birmingham. The Old Crown is situated in trendy Digbeth, known for its hipster hangouts and legendary street food market. The pub has been around since 1368 but has evolved into a much-loved traditional British pub with edgy interiors. Their Sunday menu is simple but effective – pair beef, pork belly, a salt and pepper half chicken or a nut roast with root vegetables, buttered greens and gravy. Don’t forget to add a dessert if you’re not too full.

  • Vegetarian option:
  • Price: £13.95
  • Distance from station: 6-minute walk from Bordesley, 15-minutes from New Street.
  • Taking safety measures:

The Button Factory

Turns out the Jewellery Quarter has more than just jewellery shops – it also has fantastic roast dinners! The Button Factory has something for everyone in its restored traditional building, and the roasts are no different. With six choices of Sunday lunch including two vegetarian options, The Button Factory’s menu is as inclusive as it is tasty. The only criticism we have is that Yorkshire puddings aren’t included, but they can be added for just £1 extra. Kitted out with three gardens, this is a great choice when the sun is shining.

  • Vegetarian option:
  • Price: £12.50-£17.00
  • Distance from station: 4-minute walk from Jewellery Quarter, 15-minutes from Snow Hill, 20-minutes from New Street and 25-minutes from Moor Street.
  • Taking safety measures:

The Wolf

Family run pub The Wolf is adored for its craft ale selection, but also does a cracking Sunday lunch. Choose from the set menu and dig in! With an extensive beer list as well as the classics, The Wolf is suitable for everyone, even offering a kids’ roast for £6.50! They also offer a cheese and meat board on a Sunday, if that’s more your thing. Located just off the canals, it’s a great location for a day date if you want to walk off those roasties. Or just get another beer – your choice.

  • Vegetarian option:
  • Price: £13
  • Distance from station: 8-minute walk from Snow Hill, 10-minutes from Jewellery Quarter and 15-minutes from New Street and Moor Street.
  • Taking safety measures:
