BRAVO award winners for

Best Sunday Roast Brighton

Best Sunday Roast

Nothing whips the city into more of a frenzy than the question of where to find the best Sunday Roast Brighton. Insider knowledge is whispered, passionate testimonials shared and when news of a top notch ‘Sunday session’ spreads, you people will travel from Kemptown to Hove, or up a (very) steep hill, in hot pursuit. And the winner of the BRAVO for Best Roast goes to – The Geese. Huge congratulations to the team.

First place

This cool and cosy Hanover local is no stranger to the BRAVOs Best Roast list, having taken top spot in 2019 and again this year. Banging bangers and mash during the week are replaced with a simply perfect Sunday roast. Meat or veggie mains are served with all the trimmings. Piggies in blanket or cauliflower cheese are extra. And there must always always be room for the sticky toffee pudding at the end. The pints are well-poured and the vibes are well-chilled. 

Second place

Opposite lovely Blakers Park and its spectacular sea views, The Cleveland Arms is a family run local knitted into the heart of the Fiveways community. And the roast is legendary. Kick things off with Bloody Ben’s Bloody Mary then choose from locally-sourced roasted meats or veggie options with everything you’d expect and more. There’s a great kids menu, a selection of unmissable desserts and cheese from The Great British Charcuterie.

Third place

Haus on The Hill is right up at the top of our list (and Southover Street) for good reason. This super fun and friendly boozer gets the #2 spot in the BRAVOs Best Local this year and the quality of the roast is a big part of its appeal. Enjoy the sumptuous Sunday feast alongside your favourite pint from local micro-brewery Brighton Bier. Then sit back and relax as you while away the afternoon with your favourite people.
