The 5 best places to get a roast dinner in Birmingham

Trying to make that perfect roast dinner when you're a student can be a bit tricky...

You may have never made a full roast dinner before in your life, your kitchen's too small, you don't have the 385728 baking trays needed to cook everything at once, or you're just too tired and want a roast... now. This list has you covered—these places in Birmingham are easy to get to and you're guaranteed the perfect roast dinner; no fuss (or washing up) needed.

1. The Plough

Slightly on the pricier side is The Plough in Harborne, they are famous for their amazing breakfast and brunch menu, but they also have a great lunch and dinner menu—including their roast dinner on Sunday. Choose from chicken or beef, both can be cooked to your liking, served with homemade gravy and a huge Yorkshire pudding—you definitely get your money's worth. There is also a gluten-free option, so they do try and cater for everyone. If it's a nice day you can also take advantage of their Instagram-worthy beer garden; The Plough is the perfect place to spend a Sunday afternoon.

2. The Lord Clifden

If you're looking for somewhere more casual and a little different then try The Lord Clifden in the Jewellery Quarter. Their roasts come with either lamb, beef or you can opt for the veggie option, but be warned the portion sizes are massive so definitely go on an empty stomach! The pub itself is filled with quirky artwork, making the perfect backdrop for an Instagram post—or if the weather is good they have a beer garden, complete with ping pong table where you can challenge your friends while you wait for your food. The Lord Clifden is the perfect place to visit if you're looking for somewhere just that little bit different.

3. The Old Crown

The oldest pub in Birmingham, The Old Crown situated in Digbeth, goes all out in the name of a Sunday roast. They have a wide selection of meat and veggie options to choose from, and their honey parsnips are a must! They also have a lovely beer garden, perfect if the weather is nice, so grab your flatmates and have an ice cold beer with your roast—it's the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon and the prices are reasonable too.

4. The Edwardian Tea Rooms

Take a trip around the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and finish off with a trip to the Edwardian Tea Rooms. Surprisingly—aside from amazing tea and cake—they also do a very good roast. It wouldn't be my first stop on the list for a roast dinner, but they have a huge number of options, especially if you're veggie! The homemade Yorkshire puddings are pretty good too, and if you're still hungry after your monster roast you can grab one of their amazing cakes for dessert—a win, win.

Baked in Brick—with their brand new restaurant in the Custard Factory in Digbeth—are the latest on the scene with their an amazing Sunday lunch. They promise big flavours, with a range of meat and veggie options—perfect for everyone. After your roast they also serve incredible desserts with proper custard, so you'll be sure to have a full stomach after a trip here. The restaurant is fairly small so make sure you pre-book if you fancy going.

These roasts promise to be the best in Birmingham. So, next time you're fancying a roast dinner, get yourself down to one of these places ASAP.
