sunday roast at the windmill inn, brascote.

sunday-roast-windmill-inn-brascote-review

Who doesn't love a Sunday lunch, really? So many combinations, so many traditions. Whether you're a veggie, meat eater, Yorkshire pudding obsessive or insist upon roast potatoes every Sunday... everyone has their favourite way to enjoy a roast.

A local pal and I have since decided to start a little Sunday lunch club. I mean, it's just us and every roast we can eat in Leicestershire. But it's going well so far. One I was particularly fond of recently was The Windmill in Brascote. I'd been recommended the restaurant a few times, so it felt about time to venture out.


So their Sunday roast dinners come in at 1 course for £13.00, 2 courses for £17.50 and 3 courses for £22.00. As well as some seasonal starters and freshly made desserts of the day, the main event currently has choices from;

Roasted Leg of English Lamb 
with homemade herb stuffing / rosemary + redcurrant stock gravy  

Roasted Loin of Pork
with homemade herb stuffing / cider + sage stock gravy / crackling  

Roasted British Rump of Beef 
with homemade Yorkshire pudding / stock gravy  

Spinach & Wild Mushroom Alfredo 
with linguini / cream / parmesan (optional)(v)  

Cod & Baby Spinach Bake
with creamed mash / mature cheddar



I'm usually a fan of beef but when my friend ordered lamb I knew I had to copy to avoid potential food envy. A friendly, prompt service and happy diners around us gave a lovely and cosy atmosphere whilst we waited for our grub. Soon we were tucking in to succulent lamb, delicious roast parsnips and top notch roasties. Oh and a Yorkshire, we were pleased all roasts come with one of those.

To finish, we somehow had room to sample their desserts. I went for a chocolatey, nutty brownie and she a caramel cheesecake. We couldn't fault them, really. I have a lovely cuppa too, no idea how I had room.


Overall we loved the roast and I'll definitely be back to try the main menu. In North Leicestershire, we can also recommend The Reservoir Inn in Thornton and Coach & Horses in Markfield, though I'm yet to take my camera for some review snaps. Watch this space (all in the name of reviews of course...)
