10 Sunday roasts you can walk to across Liverpool City Region


Two things go together absolutely perfectly on a weekend: a lovely big Sunday roast and a nice walk.

We’re lucky to have lots of beautiful parks and our gorgeous waterfront, from both sides of the river, so there’s no shortage of great outdoor spaces for walks.

But you might want to combine the two and find somewhere to book in for a roast too, make a full morning and afternoon of it.

Here are 10 Sunday roasts you can walk to in Liverpool City Region …

The Watering Can, Greenbank Park

Winner of the Tourism Awards ‘Hidden Gem’, voted for by the public and sponsored by The Guide, the family and dog-friendly Watering Can in Greenbank Park is well-loved in south Liverpool, and not just because its homemade cakes are amazing. Stroll around the lake, see the cheeky squirrels, then sit down surrounded by greenery for a roast, from 1pm, two courses with a glass of wine or beer, £26.

The Isla Gladstone, Stanley Park

Sunday roast

The historic Isla Gladstone Conservatory is such a lovely landmark in Stanley Park, between the two footy grounds, so if you’re out for a walk around there it’s an ideal lunch stop on Sundays. A traditional roast is served from 12 in its ground floor café, below the glass dome, and there’s the option to add on a choice of dessert if you fancy something sweet at the end.

Mustard & Co in Crosby

Sunday Roasts

If you feel like a stretch out on the beach at Crosby, and maybe a few selfies with the Iron Men, it’s really worth extending your walk onto College Road where Mustard & Co is serving a wow of a roast that’s been ranked number 4 in the UK’s best list. Served from midday to 8pm, it features a market roast – including fish and vegan – and some speciality desserts.

Gusto, Albert Dock

Not too many walks are going to be nicer than down on the waterfront, and you’ve really got to tie in a visit to the Albert Dock – so may as well make it extra special and add in a Sunday roast at Gusto. You get two courses for £22.95, with beef sirloin, pork belly, chicken or mushroom and red wine pudding to choose from, and there’s a kids roast for £8.95.

Restaurant 625, West Kirby

Sunday roasts

West Kirby’s one of the most beautiful locations in our region, and if you’re planning a big walk on the sands, maybe even out to Hilbre Island, you’ll have earned a treat and the roasts at family-run Restaurant 625 are definitely that. The full dinners are served from 12 to 7pm, but you can also just order roast sides including a fantastic cauli cheese if you just fancy a snack.

The Old Stables, Allerton Manor Golf Club

You don’t need to be a keen golfer to enjoy a fabulous Sunday roast here because it’s perfectly placed if you’ve just been out for a walk around Calderstones Park.

The Sunday Best menu, meat and veggie, is two courses for £21.95 and three for £24.95, served from 12.30pm.

The Sparrowhawk, Formby

Positioned just off the Coastal Road, and set in five acres of park and woodland, The Sparrowhawk on Southport Old Road gets rave reviews for its Sunday roasts so this is a must-try if you’re out Formby and Ainsdale way. The Sunday menu includes a choice of roasts – sirloin or beef, pork or a mix of both; chicken, lamb or nut roast and some irresistible puddings and Cheshire Farm ice creams.

Keith’s, Lark Lane

Really it could be any one of about a dozen places on the Lane that you could stop at for a roast when you’ve done a circuit of Sefton Park, but sometimes the oldies are goodies. Keith’s is a legend for good reason and it still does one of the best roasts around – top value, always a kids scaled-down option, homemade desserts and just wine and more wine to go with!

The Ship Inn, Hoylake

Sunday roasts

Another beautiful beach to walk on, and another great pub to head to afterwards – The Ship on Market Street has award-winning local chef Adam Bowers on board and, along with a traditional pub feel, that makes it well worth trying.  Adam’s Sunday Social menu, from £11.95, includes beef brisket, pork loin, lamb and nut roast, served with fresh veg and homemade gravy, plus you can add a dessert for £2.95.
