What better way to mark the arrival of autumn and winter – and the chillier weather – than with a hearty Sunday roast?
With perfect timing, all-day bar and kitchen Ducie Street Warehouse has launched a new new Sunday lunch offering, called Sunday with Sides.
Diners can look forward to a day of classic roast meats and exceptional sides, with vegetarian and vegan options available.
And it has launched with Manchester’s first (possibly the world’s first?) dedicated cauliflower cheese menu, created by well-renowned chef Andrew Green (formerly of the Lowry Hotel), lifting Ducie Street Warehouse Sundays head and shoulders above the rest.
Served from 12.30pm, the menu offers dry-aged shorthorn beef sirloin (£16.50), cooked pink or well-done as requested, plus roast supreme of corn fed chicken, tender rosemary roasted leg of lamb, free-range gammon (all £15), and a weekly changing vegan roast (from £12).
All plated roasts are served with roast potatoes from Massey’s local Cheshire farm, homemade giant Yorkshires, seasonal veg and a rich meat or vegan gravy.
A slice of Something for Everyone (£24) is also a menu option, for those who find it hard to choose, offering a slice of each of the four meats with all the usual trimmings.
Or you can go for the ’Share Menu’ (from £28), perfect for two or three people, which includes harissa spiced whole chicken, miso glazed fish of the day, 800g tomahawk of Cheshire beef, or a whole roasted ras el hanout cauliflower.
Speaking of cauliflower, the new Sunday lunch has an impressive list of variations on the dedicated cauliflower cheese menu (all £4.50), including a classic vintage cheddar cauliflower cheese, truffle, bacon frazzles, blue cheese, garlic and herb crumble, four cheese, macaroni, or a totally vegan cauliflower cheese.
Enough to delight all those, like us, who believe cauliflower cheese to be an essential part of the Sunday roast experience.
Other sides (around £4) include Cumbrian pigs-in-blankets (because they’re not just for Christmas), honey roasted heirloom carrots, minted sugar snaps and more.
This menu of sides, worth the visit alone, is complemented with live music and DJs until 9pm, presented by Manchester’s brightest new talents each Sunday, with favourite board games available at the bar.
And you can wash down any meal with the new Sunday cocktails (around £9) including the ‘house drink’ of Bellini, Espresso Martini and DSW Bloody Mary, or a Red Snapper, Breakfast Margarita, Ducie Sangria Warehouse or Champagne Mimosa.
Roll on the weekend.
Sunday with Sides is served at Ducie Street Warehouse from 12.30pm – 8.30pm on Sundays. Pre-booking via duciestreet.com is recommended.
