Yes I know, finally I’m writing about Sunday roasts!

I know it’s quite a big deal, but we’re finally taking the first step to fix the situation, okay? I promise this won’t be my last time writing about Sunday roasts. In fact, my pal from @MDOG_Manchester said that I should make it my mission to try more Sunday roasts here in Manchester, and I agree.

If you have any recommendations, leave me a comment or message me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. I’d love to give them a go!

Anyway, today we’re talking about last Sunday, and for this time G and I were fortunate enough to get an invitation from the guys at The Patron to try their roast and share our my thoughts. Here’s what we had:

Sunday roast at The Patron

Topside of Beef served with beef dripping roast potatoes, buttered carrots, seasonal greens, sage and onion stuffing, house gravy and Yorkshire pudding

Big plate of yumminess

I went for the beef option, because I’m definitely a carnivore and I just couldn’t resist it. The beef was super tender and flavourful, cooked perfectly and the seasoning was on point.

The buttered carrots were ultra delicious too, and I just couldn’t stop eating them. Five minutes later they were gone on my side. The potatoes were absolutely amazing, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. Kinda like an improved version of the patatas bravas we had at La Bandera (minus the alioli, of course).

Roast chicken, with the same sides as the beef one.

Colourful dishes are everything (and they look good for the gram, too!)

G decided to take the risk and order the roasted chicken, which I was a bit sceptical at first, because it can end up being quite dry and not-so-delicious, but that was the complete opposite of what he got!

His chicken was not dry by any means and great in each bite. The gravy was creamy and tasty, and he too loved the potatoes. One of his favourite components was the Yorkshire pudding, and I have to say that their stuffing surely complemented it greatly.


They have a deal of two roasts and a bottle of wine for £40, which I get can be quite pricey for a Sunday roast, but if you enjoy their restaurant or you’ve been meaning to pay them a visit and see what the deal is with The Patron, it’s a nice opportunity to give it a go!

Our experience was fantastic, and the attention was also great, which improves everything. What about you? Have you been to The Patron? What are your thoughts? I’d love to know!

    Quite pricey but it looks incredible and definitely will remember it for a special dinner option!

      For sure, I’ll have to experiment and see what other options we have around 🙂

    Love these shots and great write up! I can’t remember the last time I had a Sunday Roast and this pains me – I always struggle to know where to go so posts like this really help.
