With the days getting darker and the weather getting colder, there’s nothing like a good Sunday roast to warm you up in the winter. And there’s no roast quite like the one from The Patron in Manchester.
After strolling around the Northern Quarter looking for somewhere to eat, I was drawn to the sound of a beautiful double bass. It was then that I saw The Patron packed full of people enjoying great food and a live band. And when I saw their deal on Sunday roasts – two roasts and a glass of wine for £40? How could I resist!?
After stepping inside, I could see how popular this place was. Every table was full, except for a little one in the middle of the corridor with a wobbly leg. But with a 45 minute wait, I said it would do.
I ordered the beef Sunday roast with all the trimmings, and it did not disappoint.
I was presented with a massive overflowing plate – exactly what I needed after being stuck in the cold. They’re not shy with the portions, I can tell you that! There were four massive slices of beef, a huge Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, cheesy cabbage, broccoli, carrots, and a massive garlic clove (that made me feel a bit anxious because of my weird fear of wholes though), topped by a gorgeous helping of gravy.
Just writing about it is making my mouth water all over again! My only criticism would be the meat was a little two pink, but that is just a small comment in comparison to how good everything else was.
I’ve had some Sunday roasts in my time, but with the atmosphere and the music, this was without a doubt one of the best. I can’t wait to come again and see more of what The Patron has to offer.
