A really, and I mean really good Sunday Lunch is hard to come by nowadays. Because let’s face it, there’s not much variant to a roast is there?
I know people will argue about the nitty gritty, like do you add peas? What about mint sauce? But your standard meat, or no meat for Veggies, roasties, carrots, Yorkshire’s and gravy can always be found.
So imagine mine & Ste’s joy when we had a roast at the Maritime Dining Room on the Albert Dock and they knocked it out the park.
How much and when?
Before I set your mouths to watering, you’re going to want to know how to head for one of these. I can already sense it.
For any dining bookings now at the Maritime you must book in advance. All dining experiences like a Sunday Roast or Afternoon Tea come under the museums Special Events.
You can book online here, super easy with all the information you need. Or call, 0151 478 4499 with any further questions.
All available dates are listed online when booking. Limited dates are available for June and July, but August has plenty.
The roast is a “Sharing Roast” which means a whole host of food is brought out on a platter and you take what you want between the people you’re dining with.
An adult is £19.95pp, a child is £9.95pp.
Sharing is caring
Included in your booking you will get a sharing platter large enough to accommodate your party size.
This includes a selection of meat, or the vegetarian alternative, potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, vegetable trimmings, gravy and other sauces. Followed by sharing dessert platters, as well as tea and coffee.
The selections can vary from week to week, but this can be checked upon booking.
Here is what we were served …
The most delicious selection of beef sirloin and turkey, including slow braised beef that came inside the Yorkshire pudding was the main.
This was a revelation. I can’t express how much I enjoyed this.
If my Yorkshires don’t come with slow braised pulled beef inside them in the future, I am going to be greatly disappointed.
To accompany this there was also garlic and thyme roast potatoes, root vegetable mash, Cauliflower cheese, carrots and curly kale. Plus, lashings of traditional roast gravy.
I told you your mouth would be watering.
The vegetarian option looked as equally delicious. We were joined by vegetarians in our party that gave it a thumbs up for a good twist on a vegetarian roast.
Vegetarian option was wild mushroom and stilton pithivier (pie) and vegetarian haggis stuffing.
The main course was an excellent quality. All the food was presented well, and cooked perfectly. It was piping hot, and there was plenty of it.
Following this came the sharing desserts, raspberry and passion fruit Pavlova with Chantilly cream, and double chocolate brownie served with salted caramel popcorn. Wow is all I can say.
If you have room for tea and coffee, that’s also on its way. And you may even be able to squeeze in a glass of fizz. I would recommend it.
Making Sundays Special
A Sunday is my favourite day of the week anyway, but when I get to experience something like this it makes it even better.
Not only was the food delicious, but you’re eating with a view. Each window in the dining/event space overlooks the iconic Royal Albert Dock.
This venue makes the perfect setting for a special occasion, as well as just a Sunday treat. After being here and raving about it on my Instagram, quite a few people told me how they had held events & weddings there. It is a space that can be hired out, and what a brilliant one it is.
I’d love to know if you’ve been here before, or are thinking of going soon. If you have any more questions, please do ask. And, Happy Dining.
