Everyone loves a Sunday roast – it is a British institution after all. And if you’re looking to escape to the countryside and enjoy lunch at a top-notch venue, Marco Pierre White’s Steakhouse Bar & Grill at Cadbury House, near Bristol, is a must. This vibrant eatery has recently been refurbished (think sleek and stylish without being pretentious) and is a fantastic spot for a bite to eat.
The new Sunday menu is a smorgasbord of delights. In fact, the starter is an actual smorgasbord of hors d’oeuvres, which includes a mouth-watering array of cured meats and fish, vegetable dishes, salads and homemade soup. This buffet-style approach means diners can enjoy a veritable feast before the main course. But make sure to leave plenty of room for the entrée!
The choice of main-course dishes is impressive. We were torn between the pan-fried salmon with crushed new potatoes, and the roast sirloin of beef with Yorkshire pudding. We opted for the salmon, which was served with a delicious white-wine sauce and fresh green beans. It did not disappoint. There was also a choice of slow-roasted pork belly with mustard mash, roast rump of lamb with Dijonnaise sauce, and wild mushroom macaroni with poached egg.
Those with a sweet tooth will be pleased to know the dessert selection is also delectable. We chose the chocolate tart with Chantilly cream and fresh raspberries; it was absolutely heavenly. Other options on the menu include bread and butter pudding with crème Anglaise, treacle tart with vanilla ice-cream, and a selection of sorbets and ice-cream.
With its buzzing atmosphere, mouth-watering (and extremely reasonably priced) menu, and spectacular countryside views, the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill is certainly worth a visit. And after all that delicious food, you’ll no doubt join us in having a lovely afternoon snooze…
