Smile Anyone Knows a Decent Roast Dinner in Nottingham?

As a foodie, I cook everyday of the week from scratch, but I've yet encountered any decent roast dinners for a long time when dining out. I've been to most pubs and restaurants around the city area and nothing compares to what I can make at home, quality-wise. I Just need to put my feet up and let someone else do the Roast for a change, but where are they? I would love to find all the trimmings (lots of fresh veg - cabbage, swede, parsnips etc but i absolutely hate finding peas in roasts, so inappropriate!) and plenty of meat too. I think the Carvery option is the best, then I can choose what I want and have lots of variety!! If not, then in a decent-sized portion. Can pay around a tenner, if it's worth it!!

Can anyone help?

The hole in the wall at Brinsley is lovely. 3.50 i think for the carvery last time we went. There is also Brinsley Lodge, i've been told that's excellent.

The Victoria at beeston is yummy - they do food all day and on a sunday d a roast plus other sutff. mmmm its not the cheapest around but its sooo good you wont mind.

It is very busy though so get there early or wait til after 2.

th eother palce is the golden fleece on mansifield road - a little known fact one of the ex cheifs at the world service owns it and the food is fantastic and not a bad price too. i havne thad sunday lunch but have eaten there and was very good.

last time I went there for a Sunday roast - which they also did at night as well I had 9 vegetables from the carvery. Was about 18 months ago so perhaps somebody else could confirm whether it's still as good?

hey possette!
thanks for that, i love derbyshire! we like to walk in the Peaks (edale, bakewell, chesterfield etc) if you know of any others over there then that'll be great. btw, we don't have a car, so we tend to find a bus/train route to the aforementioned walking places.

Please please try the Shepherds Rest at Bagthorpe - we took our families there (we have been quite a few times anyway) after our wedding day in 2007 and all we hear now when we see any of them is "we must come to see you again so we can do cavery at the Sheps!"

8.00 but well worth every penny!
It's nice to be nutty but's more important to be nice
