As the saying goes, a Sunday well spent brings a week of content, and what better way to spend the day than by enjoying good old fashioned roast? From sirloin steak to roast beef and all the trimmings, we look at six places to spend your Sunday in Glasgow.

The Grill on the Corner

21-25 Bothwell St, Glasgow G2 6NL

The Grill on the Corner serves up what they call a “proper Sunday roast” as part of their specials menu every week. The city centre restaurant is no stranger to a perfectly cooked and seasoned piece of meat and on Sunday’s that’s no different. Customers can choose from roasted beef, pork or chicken as their meat of choice with all the trimmings on the side (including a generous portion of Yorkshire pudding) all for £12.95. What more could you want?

The Butchershop Bar and Grill

1055 Sauchiehall St, Glasgow G3 7UD

Another of the city’s best meat joints, The Butchershop Bar and Grill have put their own spin on the traditional Sunday roast. To ease your stomach into the mammoth feast it’s about to experience, a selection of starters are available including beet salad, parfait and meatballs. For the main course, carnivores must decide between pork or sirloin of Borders beef.

If you’re after something really special, also on offer is a 35 day dry aged roast “tafelspitz” for two,  which comes in at £35.

The Curlers Rest

256-260 Byres Rd, Glasgow G12 8SH

The Curlers Rest is something of an institution when it comes to Sunday roasts in Glasgow. Their menu is extensive with 21 day aged British Isles roast sirloin of beef, pork, lamb and chicken, as well as a nut roast for vegetarians. To wash it down, Bloody Mary’s are free flowing with chilled-out tunes on repeat to prepare you for the week ahead.
