Sunday Roast at Cultureplex

Sunday Roast at Cultureplex

We were recently invited to visit Cultureplex and to review the newly launched Sunday Roast menu and we were delighted to accept.

With recent high profile changes here, we were keen to assess any impact as a result.

We need not have worried.

For starters:

The trout gravlax was a nice change from salmon and there was plenty of it and the accompanying Duck rillettes, cornichons, duck with fat toast, was equally delicious.

The food was excellent.

Then to mains:

The beef was nice and pink and the Yorkshire pud very light and my 1/2 Roast chicken, bread pudding with pork stuffing croquette, was also beautifully cooked and presented by the charming and knowledgeable Manjari with her colleague Frank (female).

There was rather too much food though and when the sides of cauliflower cheese and red cabbage were presented, we both looked at each other in disbelief.Was this really just for two diners?

We were suitably assured.

Despite our strong attempts to finish our respective dishes, we failed with honour.


Neither of us felt able but chose to share an Almond & plum tart, just to be sociable. After a few small bites we gave up, 'full as a gun'.

THE WINE MERCHANT’S ROSÉ, Cariñena, was nicely refreshing coutesy of Berry Brothers by Royal Appointment.

In summary: We both thoroughly enjoyed this Sunday lunch experience, but were left feeling somewhat guilty at the amount of food we were unable to eat.

Price: With two bottles and coupled with £30/head that would have come in at £100 and concluded that this placed it as a special occasion treat, but then again what better special occasion that a delightful lunch in the best company?

Background music was provided by a resident DJ at Rebeccaneverbecky, all coming together to create a chilled vibe.

Full details of the Sunday Roast menu and the A la Carte which operates along side via

Highly recommended.
