30 of the Best Sunday Lunch Roasts to Try in Worcestershire

I recently read a fantastic post by Spruce Eats about the history of the British Sunday roast. According to the article “The Sunday Roast came to prominence during the reign of King Henry VII in 1485, and the Yeoman of the Guard–the royal bodyguard–have affectionately been known as ‘beefeaters’ since the 15th century because of their love of eating roast beef.” It goes on to say that “in 1871, William Kitchener, author of Apicius Redivivus or The Cook’s Oracle, recommended eating 3 kg (6lb) of meat each week as part of a healthy diet (he also recommended 2 kilos of bread and a pint of beer every day).”

These days we eat far less meat, and many of us have given it up for good. If like me, you love nothing more on a Sunday than to enjoy a delicious, hearty Sunday roast, then take a look at my round up listing 30 of the best Sunday lunch roasts to try in Worcestershire…
