The Best Sunday Roast in Manchester

At Greene King, we can think of few better ways to cap off a weekend spent exploring the wonders of Manchester than with a hearty Sunday roast. This city, with its mix of industrial charm, cutting-edge culture, and love for the beautiful game (both the red and blue sides), offers the perfect backdrop for getting together with family and friends to savour a delicious meal.

From the sheer architectural grandeur of the John Rylands Library to the hustle and bustle of the Arndale shopping centre, Manchester is a city that has it all. No matter if you’re catching a match at the Etihad or Old Trafford, walking through the greenery at Heaton Park, or enjoying an afternoon of retail therapy, a Greene King pub in Manchester is never too far away. Whichever pub you choose, we’re ready to welcome you with open arms, a perfectly poured pint, and a plate of something special.

Sunday Roasts Near You

Across the city of Manchester and its outskirts, Greene King pubs like the Fountain House in Albert Square and the White Horse in Swinton are top places to bring the family for Sunday lunch. And for a roast that’s as memorable as the city’s legendary football clubs and music scene, don’t miss the Lass O'Gowrie. With 15 unique pubs across Manchester, each with its own distinct character and storied history, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to finding the ultimate spot for a Sunday roast.

The Fountain House - A Classic Roast in the Heart of the City

You can’t miss the Fountain House on your adventures in Manchester city centre. The Venetian Gothic-style building is Grade II listed, while the pub’s Sunday roast menu mirrors its head-turning architecture. Here, the roast beef is served with a delicious horseradish cream, and the roast chicken is classically paired with sage and onion stuffing. For those looking for something a little different, our roast porchetta with cider apple sauce and vegan wellington offers a contemporary take on the Great British Sunday roast. It’s a popular option among locals and tourists, so be sure to book a table!

Just a short drive from the city centre, a little beyond Salford you’ll find the White Horse, where Sundays are all about family time done right. Our menu hits the spot for everyone, featuring classics like succulent turkey breast, hearty sirloin of roast beef, and proper mac and cheese for the kids (it’s a real favourite). The pub is a great spot for families wanting to relax and enjoy a meal together without any fuss, and away from the city’s constant buzz. Pooches are welcome too, meaning Sundays at the White Horse are a real family affair. No one is left out here…

But its Sunday menu options are as much of a reason to make it a part of your weekend in Manchester. The lineup includes everything from a rich lamb shank to a delicious beetroot, sweet potato, & butternut squash tart, and a classic mushroom & ale pie - of course, with all the trimmings.
