Situated on the south Devon coast is the Berry Head Hotel, with stunning views overlooking the “English Riviera”. Does honey and mustard glazed gammon ham with Madeira sauce sound tempting to you? If so, join the hotel between 12 and 2:30pm on Sunday for an amazing roast! As we approach summer there will be live jazz on the terrace and in the winter they have mesmerising piano music playing in the background while you enjoy your mouth-watering roast.


Double Locks, Exeter

Enjoy a cold glass of Chardonnay before digging into the roast sirloin of beef with vegetable and a delicious Yorkshire pudding by the cosy log fire.
