It’s what Sundays are made for

Chef Dan Pearce and his team have been working to create a wonderful menu to put the roast back into your Sunday.

The Brits’ love affair with roast – particularly beef – goes back centuries (history buffs will recall Henry Fielding’s ballad to beef dating back to the 1730s) with a great joint of meat seen as the most noble of dishes to grace an Englishman’s table at the end of an industrious week.

It doesn’t always have to be beef of course – although we do have roast beef with all the trimmings on our Sunday roast menu at Aalto – but a special meal planned with care and presented with love, is a great occasion to gather friends and family and always a joy to look forward to.

As Dan says: “There’s something very special about a roast meal, be it beef or lamb maybe, or a delicious combination of ingredients for non-meat eaters too, which is a great thing to enjoy on a Sunday. For me, it’s a about creating an occasion which can be relaxed or more formal, the key thing is about who you share it with.”

New to Aalto this week is our great kids’ menu, suitable for the under 11s, which will keep your little people happy too. They’ll enjoy a complimentary drink and a choice of three courses for £10.

Staying over on a Saturday? Make the most of the weekend with our Sunday Lie In: no need to check out until 2pm when you book a table for Sunday lunch. So, snooze, shop, stroll … make the most of your time and enjoy your Sunday roast at Aalto.
