The Perfect Restaurant Roast

The traditional Sunday roast dinner has a special place in our hearts, and it isn’t hard to see why it is a longstanding favourite. We can’t think of anything better than sitting down to a restaurant-cooked roast dinner with friends and family. Whilst we wait un l we can enjoy that moment again, we’ve explored what makes the perfect restaurant roast.

A variety of succulent meats
The meat is the crowning glory of the roast dinner and it is important to have a variety of mouth-watering meats to choose from. Traditional favourites like roast beef are on our menu all year round but we are proud of our seasonal offerings such as festive turkey. Being nestled in the Essex countryside we find that seasonal game is very popular. All of our meats are locally sourced, of high quality and cooked to perfection.

Perfect potatoes
Some would argue that roast potatoes are just as important as the meat that is served with your Sunday dinner, as they can make or break a roast. Crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside a roast dinner just wouldn’t be the same without perfect potatoes. We’re very proud of our roast potatoes here at The George and we can’t wait for you to try them.

Fresh seasonal vegetables
We love the freshness and colour that seasonal vegetables add to that roast dinner plate. New spring greens or juicy green beans are perfect for summer whilst we love parsnips in the winter. And, however controversial, a fes ve roast dinner would not be complete without Brussels sprouts.

Let’s get saucy
The right condiment can turn a good roast dinner into a great one, especially when the right sauce is paired with the meat to further bring out the flavour. When dining at The George you can rest assured that you’ll always be offered the right sauce for your roast, whether that be fiery horseradish, fresh apple, tangy mint or sweet yet sour cranberry.

That perfect gravy
A roast dinner wouldn’t be the favourite that it is without gravy. We’re so proud of our delicious homemade gravy at The George that you can enjoy unlimited helpings all Sunday long.

Bottoms up
The choice of drinks available can help make that Sunday roast perfect. Whether you enjoy a full-bodied red wine with your roast beef, or a refreshing white wine with your roast chicken, our wine list will have the perfect pairing to enjoy with your roast. If you prefer a cocktail (who doesn’t), beer, spirits or something softer The George at Kelvedon has a well-stocked bar to offer something to everyone’s tastes.

Accompanying starters and deserts
One of the joys of a restaurant-cooked roast dinner is the fact that you haven’t got to stress about mings, spend hours preparing or cleaning up. Make use of this me by enjoying a delicious starter or luxury dessert (or both!) to really make that Sunday lunch perfect.

Vegetarian and Vegan Roasts, plus other dietary options. A roast dinner isn’t exclusively for meat eaters and a good restaurant knows that the Sunday roast dinner is a Bri sh classic deserved to be enjoyed by everyone, no matter their dietary requirements. Our vegan and vegetarian op ons include, slow roasted butternut squash, beetroot wellington and wild mushroom and tomato pithivier. Or perhaps our twist on the classic nut roast with chestnut & pumpkin will take your fancy.

The George at Kelvedon can’t wait to welcome you back for a Sunday roast as soon as we are able to. In the mean me, keep an eye on our events page for special take-away nights so you can enjoy one of our legendary roasts in your own home.
