Hello Travelers, I've heard that Sunday dinner (lunch) is often a special meal in England with a roast and popovers. Can anyone recommend a pub or restaurant in Stow on the Wold (or that general area) of the Cotswolds? I'd especially be interested in hearing about their Sunday dinner if you had the opportunity to experience that! Thanks so much!
Pop overs? Not on any British menu! There proper name is Yorkshire Puddings and they are delicious😀
A Sunday roast dinner (lunch, typically served around 2pm) is very much a British tradition but is something best made at home. One of the most important constituents, roast potatoes, don't do well hanging around and must be served straight from the oven to retain their perfect, fluffy crispness. I've experiened only a handful of pubs/restaurants manage to handle this well so i never eat a Sunday roast outside of someone's home, preferably mine.
Yorkshire puddings were traditionally confined to roast beef (their initual use differs entirely buy I can't be bothered to recount it as I'm typing on a tablet and it's frustrating) however yorkshire puddings are so nice that everone has them with every type of roast.
We really enjoyed Bakers Arms in Broad Campden (not too far from Stow in the Wold, but would probably need a car). We did not go on a Sunday, but ate there twice on our trip and everything was delicious. I did see a sign for their Sunday Roast dinner. It looked to me like most pubs offered it, but we found the quality of food varied greatly from pub to pub. You can read reviews for a lot of them. (I always google the "pub name reviews" and several reviewing sites will come up).
Might be too late with my reply but The Plough Inn In Ford, about a 15 minute drive from Stow on The World would be a great option for a Sunday Roast.
Went 3 years ago. Loved my Sunday roast, the ambience and the staff.
Google to see reviews.
Just be careful crossing the road from the parking lot.
