6 Great places to enjoy a Sunday steak in the UK

If you’re not familiar with what a Sunday steak is, I’ll give you a little introduction. Sunday steak is a meal traditionally eaten on Sundays and usually at lunch. It may include beef steak - which is the most traditional steak meat in the UK - or roast chicken, lamb and even a vegetable or vegan meat substitute. This is a great plate of food and also includes French fries, mashed potatoes, vegetables such as carrots, peas, cauliflower or cabbage, stuffing and, most importantly, Yorkshire puddings.

If you have never been into Yorkshire puddings, they are made with dough, like pancakes, and poured into small buns the size of a bun. The mixture is grown in the oven to create individual “puddings”. Puddings are especially useful for pouring sauce! Your steak will also come with various sauces, depending on where you eat. It could be cranberry sauce, mint sauce if you take lamb meat, bread sauce or a white sauce.

While Sunday steak has traditionally been cooked at home every Sunday without fail, nowadays it is more likely to be something that people go out of town with. Almost every pub and restaurant in the UK offers some sort of Sunday steak, but here are some great places to enjoy the most authentic British food.

1. Bottle & Glass Inn

Henley-On-Thames, England

Bottle & Glass Inn, an award-winning pub and restaurant with rooms right next to Henley-on-Thames, is a Grade II protected thatched-roof pub. It looks very traditional, and while it still retains some of the traditional features of Sunday steak, the cuisine here also offers some interesting modernizations.

Start your steak dinner with a classic shrimp cocktail or an original scotch egg, then switch to compact steaks. A common entry on the menu is the Peasemore lamb shoulder dorset cooked overnight so that it falls apart on the plate. It comes with all the toppings and cakes you can imagine, plus cauliflower cheese and mother’s mint jelly.

Other non-split steaks are available, including a 35-day-old Galloway beef steak served with Yorkshire pudding, horseradish and all toppings. But their fried lamb chopsticks have become a bit of a staple and are very popular with their guests.

Finish with the sticky toffee pudding with honeycomb, caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream, or for something lighter, opt for the Binfield berry pavlova with orange curd and shock flowers and vanilla cream.

2. Edgehill Castle

Near Banbury, England

You can’t become more traditional British than a castle, so eating a Sunday steak inside one is quite special. Edgehill Castle is famous for two things locally - its sights and the “proper” sauce it uses for its hearty Sunday lunches.

The restaurant offers beef and pork from local sources, fresh produce from local allowances, the “appropriate” sauce for which it has become well known and the amazing historical surroundings. If you’re wondering what the “right” sauce is, it’s traditionally made from steak juice, rather than any pre-prepared sauce mixture.

History of Edgehill Castle

The Castle Tower, now home to a new micro-distillery, also known as the “Radway” or “Round Tower”, was designed to reproduce Guy’s Tower at nearby Warwick Castle. The castle first became a pub in 1822, then sold by Sanderson Miller and purchased by Hook Norton Brewery in 1922, with Mark Higgs, the current tenant, taking over the lease in 2013.

Tip: The on-site distillery runs a gin school where you can try to make your own.

3. Loja Lewinnick

North Cornwall, England

Lewinnick Lodge is a family-run restaurant and bar with rooms that really put you on the edge - where the land and the sea meet. Perched among the cliffs of the headland, Lewinnick offers panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and beyond and is perfectly located for dining overlooking the sea or to stay a little longer in one of its 17 bedrooms.

With the ocean in the background, Lewinnick’s restaurant is the perfect location for sunset, long lunches or a coffee by the fire. Expect brewery favorites such as large shrimp laksa and pork belly with apple cabbage. Created with products from local sources, the seasonal menus include seafood specialties on the shores below the restaurant and signature dishes that highlight the best of Cornish vendors.

Sunday lunch here is a choice of beef, pork belly or lamb shoulder. Although, if you dine right on the beach, they also offer the option of a beer of the day.

Tip: Dog-friendly rooms are available on request, and four-legged friends can expect a dog bed, a bowl, sweets left in their room and tips on the best dog walks in the area upon arrival.

Heft is the first inn and restaurant project of former Michelin-starred chef Kevin Tickle. Kevin’s irreverent outing about Sunday lunch, which he calls “Sunday Service,” begins at noon and lasts early in the evening, with the last service at 6:00 p.m. every Sunday. This is the most unusual way to make Sunday lunch and that’s all I like!

Located in Grange-over-Sands, Heft is run by people who have a real passion for food and keep things simple but make them shine. It all starts with a little bread, but again, any good gathering does.
