Everyone has their own opinion about the perfect Sunday roast. Is swede on the plate? Are Brussels sprouts a must-have or going nowhere near your mouth? And that’s all before we even get onto the cut of meat – and even then, what if you’re vegan or vegetarian? Finding the best Sunday roast in Birmingham can feel like a Herculean task.
That’s where Rate Good Roasts on Instagram has stepped in to help. After a year of trying roasts from all over the country, it released it’s annual Sunday Roast Top 10 on New Year’s Day. With one place local to Birmingham making the list.
Sharing second place with The Refuge in Manchester is Wolverhampton’s Seats at Robinsons. The family owned bistro in Tettenhall opened in 2018 as an extension of the butchers and deli. Using fresh and locally sourced ingredients, Seats at Robinsons aims to “serve simple and tasty food” that changes seasonally.
Rate Good Roasts reviewed Seats at Robinsons back in December and gave it a highly respectable score of 94%. Reviews are broken into 10 categories with the Meat, Vegetables, Yorkshire Puddings, Service and Value all attaining a perfect score. Sides, Venue, Drinks and Potatoes all received a 9 out of 10. The only let down was the gravy, which let the Sunday roast down only slightly and scored 8/10.
Of course, having an onsite butchers it can guarantee the quality of the meat every-time. Outside of the Sunday roasts, Seats at Robinsons is well-known for serving delicious burgers and steaks throughout the week. The restaurant is currently closed for a winter break, however, but will re-open on January 11.
