The Antelope – Surbiton, London

Located in Surbiton, The Antelope offers a local-friendly atmosphere with fantastic beer and food. The adjoining smoke house restaurant, The Brew House, serves incredible dishes, including, of course, roasts. Our recommendation would be to get the Brisket tacos which are to die for! They serve great beer from the brewery which as only grown in popularity across the country as they’ve expanded and often put on beer tasting festivals with other local brewers.. Dog-friendly and conveniently located near Surbiton station.

The White Hart – Hythe, Kent

The White Hart in Hythe boasts a cracking roast beef dinner with yorkshire puds the size of your fist and the beef is always beautifully pink, perfect for Easter Sunday indulgence. Dog and child-friendly, with cozy log fires and proximity to the Hythe Canal for a post-dinner stroll.

Redhouse – Newcastle-upon-Tyne


A historic pub in Newcastle, Redhouse is renowned for its fantastic pies – proper pies too, not those “ bowl with pastry on top” – and wide selection of beers. Enjoy the old-world charm and riverside location while indulging in proper pies and a cozy atmosphere.

Sheeps Heid – Edinburgh

Edinburgh’s oldest pub, Sheeps Heid, offers a delightful combination of character, cozy ambiance, and delicious roast dinners. Nestled at the foot of Arthur’s Seat, it’s the perfect destination after a scenic walk through Holyrood Park.

Three Horseshoes – Batcombe, Somerset


Founded by the team behind London’s esteemed St John restaurant, which is one of THE best restaurants in London and has been for a few decades. The fish pie is incredible, as is the belting wine list. With a picturesque countryside setting and a roaring open fire, it’s an ideal spot for a cozy Easter Sunday meal.

The Bell at Skenfrith – Monmouthshire

Situated in a 17th-century coaching inn, The Bell at Skenfrith offers Herefordshire beef sirloin roast alongside stunning views of the River Monnow, which is perfect for a summer swim in front of the pub after a big hike in the hills around it. After you’ve walked off some calories, unwind with a sumptuous meal and local beer.

The Drunken Duck – Barnsgates, Lake District


100% the best beer garden in the country, maybe the world? It’s a big claim, but with its outdoor area overlooking the fells and peaks of the Lake District, The Drunken Duck also boasts its own brewery and outstanding restaurant. With cozy rooms upstairs and a prime location, it’s a must-visit for Easter Sunday.

The Flying Stag – Braemar, Cairngorms

The Flying Stag

Nestled in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park within The Fife Arms, The Flying Stag offers a unique blend of Scottish hospitality, great food, and live music. Walk for miles in the highlands, then come here for big roaring fires with delicious fare and local brews.

Strawberry Duck – Bolton


Set in the countryside near Bolton, Strawberry Duck offers a perfect retreat after a walk around the reservoir. With great ale, open fires, and delicious food, it’s an ideal spot to savor a traditional Easter Sunday roast. Don’t forget to wave down the train at the nearby request stop station!
