A roast for Sunday Lunch is the truest of all British traditions . It serves as the ultimate comfort for a catalogue of reasons. If you hit it a little too hard on Saturday night, this meal is the only thing that will help you feel human all over again. The charming tea also acts as a hug on a plate for those quaking thanks to that dreaded Smonday feeling. As the weekend draws to a close, it is likely you won’t want to face cooking up a storm when there is quality ‘me’ time to be had.
With this in mind, we have compiled a collection of some of the best on offer in Birmingham right now.
