The Minerva on Nelson Street, Hull

The Three Tuns

Probably one of the cheapest options out there and definitely one to have a look at if you’re on a budget. The pub on Boothferry Road typically serves from 12-4pm and charges just £ 6.95.

There are 290 reviews for the popular pub and it has scored 4.3 stars overall. One review said: “The best carvery I have had for ages. Crispy toasties, gorgeous stuffing, beautiful meat. Friendly staff. Brilliant.”

Forrest & Co at the Punch Hotel

A popular spot right in the city center next door to Princes Quay, with high footfall outside and an attractive frontage. It would be easy for the staff here to rest on their laurels but reviews for the Sunday Roast say otherwise.

One review said: “Excellent Sunday lunch, roast Turkey with all the trimmings. No need to book, all table service and lovely staff.”

Crofters Restaurant

A classy and quaint option for people looking for more of a restaurant experience. Still not budget busting with one course on Sunday costing £ 12 and two courses at £ 16.

Options include slow roast belly pork, half chicken and dry aged rump. The venue on Wilson Street in Anlaby has 4.7 stars out of five from 144 reviews.

One review said: “Amazing food. Amazing staff. The sticky toffee pudding is the best I’ve ever had (best with ice cream) and the roast beef and lamb melts in your mouth. Would highly recommend.”

Rupert & Darwin

Consistently rated as one of the best spots to grab a bite to eat in the city, the Princes Avenue venue also serves a mean roast. On the pricier side at two courses for £ 20 but with a focus on local fresh ingredients.

Sample options include topside of beef, sea trout and roast chicken. Only 80 reviews so far but 4.8 out of five ain’t half bad.

One review said: “First visit to this restaurant and will definitely be going again! Went with family for Sunday lunch, we all had the beef which we all agreed was beautiful, and sticky toffee pudding which came with ice cream but they happily served us it with home made custard. Service 1st class. “

Larkin’s Bar

A famous roast for a famous name, well known in the area for delivering a good Sunday Dinner week after week. Served from 12 noon until 4pm every Sunday.

The well-known venue has drawn 826 reviews with an average score of 4.5 out of five. One review said: “The food was outstanding the staff are really friendly and welcoming. The outside area is a nice and chilled out area to be in definitely will be returning.”
