Harlequin if you like a very good home cooked type Sunday lunch,   Pork or very rare Beef.  Like your mum makes, not delicate in any way but a really good feast! They also do a great veggie option and have about 20 different ciders.

 

The food at the barrel in the Peaks  is excellent and they do  a  Sunday lunch,  a bit of a trek though.

Just head up to The Sportsman at the top of Redmires Road at S10  4LJ

 

probably the finest Sunday roast in a 50 mile radius. Probably need to book but they normally find a way to squeeze you in.

And do you often travel within a 50 mile radius to try and find the best Sunday lunches?  If so I am going to take your recommendation very seriously.  I do.  Last few Sundays have seen us eat out in the following places:  

 

The Bear. Alderwasley, Derbyshire.  

The Rancliffe Arms. Bunny, Nottinghamshire. 

Shibden Mill Inn.  Halifax. West Yorkshire. 

The Duncombe Arms.  Ellaston near Ashbourne. Derbyshire.

The Worley Arms.  Wortley, near Sheffield. 

 

Just got back from Wortley today.  Very good food and great service.  Thanks for the recommendation to Lil-Minx. 

 

If you do the same and regularly travel for miles around to find quality food then I’ll be pleased to try out the Sportsman as you suggest? 

 

Few folk do.  They are usually basing their recommendations off very little.

Out of interest how much is the Sunday roast at The Sportsman and what is the choice?

I can answer you that because we went yesterday, thanks to the recommendations of a couple of people on here.  

 

It's £8.95 and there is a choice of Beef, Turkey or Pork.  

 

The pub is not very big inside and it was heaving packed full of people, mainly dining.  Lots of families with young children, people out walking, etc.  A nice mixed crowd, but it was very busy and noisy at times.  

 

The meat is very well done.  I don't mean that negatively, but I'm just saying, if you like your beef medium or medium rare you won't get that here.  This is more like the dinners your Mam or Gran may have made.  Veg are well done too.  But I must say, we really enjoyed it, it was tasty and very good value for money.  I particularly liked the fact you can have whatever selection of meats you want - and they are generous with it.  I like the meat to be the main part of my Sunday lunch, so a couple of thin little slices (which is what you get in some places) doesn't do it for me.  But here they will give you as much as you like, more or less.  The Yorkshire puddings are a bit disappointing - they are the packet type, "Aunt Bessies" style, rather than home made - but that didn't spoil it for us.

 

Is it the best carvery in a 50 mile radius?  Honestly, no, not in my experience.  It doesn't come anywhere near the quality of the food on offer at Rancliffe Arms, Bunny, in Notts, or The Bear at Alderwasley in Derbyshire.  But - it is still very nice and we will definitely be going back there again.  So thanks to those who recommended it.  It's probably the best one around Sheffield that we've tried so far.

Thanks very much for the info.

can't beat The Old Horns at Bradfield for me x

I've been there too, not so long ago.  I thought it was decent tbh.  But the Sportsman had more choice and quantity and the quality is equally as good.  Try both then tell us what you think.
