This subterranean steakhouse is serving a sharing Sunday roast – with unlimited Yorkshire puddings and gravy


Scottish steakhouse Alston Bar & Beef, which opened in the Grade II listed Corn Exchange two-and-a-half years ago, has already won over Manchester diners with its premium beef and cold-compound gins. 

And now, they’ve launched a Sunday roast with a difference. It’s designed to share between four or more – and comes with unlimited gravy and Yorkshire puddings. They know the way to our hearts.

The ultimate Sunday dining experience, the three-course platter includes a starter, a roast dinner with all the trimmings, and a sharing dessert. 

The starter is an intriguing-sounding soup of the day fondue, served with fresh sourdough bread and butter, before the main event: a hearty roast.

The roast offers the chance to try their famous Tweed Valley beef, supplied by accredited farms in Alston’s original home of Scotland and served medium rare or well done as desired.

Or you can go for traditional roast chicken, with a vegetarian option available upon request. 

It’s served with a platter of honey glazed carrots, mustard parsnips, buttered savoy cabbage and beef fat roast potatoes, complete with unlimited gravy and Yorkshire puddings.

And for pudding itself, there’s an indulgent sharing strawberry trifle.

As well as offering this hearty Sunday roast feast, Alston has one of the largest selections of gins available in the city, which includes a number of their own gin infusions.

You can head to their secret gin speakeasy to try a few, if you want to make an afternoon of it.

Alston Bar & Beef’s Sunday roast feast is available every Sunday for groups of four or more, and is priced at £30 per adult and £13.50 per child (half portion). Due to high demand, it’s recommended to book 72 hours in advance.
