Cornwall is a big place and many pubs and restaurants deliver an incredible Sunday Roast in Cornwall experience all year round! We’ve listed our favourites below and hope they get your juices flowing..
Who can resist a rural yet coastal pub with a roaring log fire, great ales and wine and an unbeatable reputation for great food? The Gurnard’s Head is one of our personal favourites because it offers that hug as you walk through the door. You know the hug we mean; delicious smelling food, friendly welcome, charm and characterful and the promise of pure relaxation. It is a popular destination for Sunday lunch so be sure to book well ahead! So, make your way along one of Cornwall’s most scenic roads, gather the family (and the dog) for a bracing coastal walk and then tuck in to a proper Sunday lunch!
Tremenheere Kitchen, located in the Tremenheere Gardens, is an idyllic setting for a Sunday roast. Their kitchen and dining area are located near the entrance of their grounds and the dining area oozes with natural light. Another added bonus is that they have a log burner too, perfect for Sunday’s!
The Sunday lunches are served from 12-4pm and their roast options are:
Cornish pork shoulder, apple sauce, apricot and sage stuffing, duck fat roast potatoes and a special ‘TK’ gravy.

The Thomas Daniell is a grade 2 listed building in Truro and we love visiting there when we’re looking for a slight change of scenery from St Ives.
Their Sunday roast menu is served from 12-8pm and includes the choices of:
Roasted strip loin of beef
Slow roasted belly pork
Lentil bake served with balsamic onion gravy
Once you’ve chosen your key roast component, it will be served with rosemary roasted potatoes, home made pork and apple stuffing, honey glazed carrots and parsnips, seasonal vegetables, cauliflower cheese homemade Yorkshire puddings and a red wine gravy.
We have to admit, the cauliflower cheese here is up there with the best!
The Red River Inn in Gwithian is fast becoming the locals place to go for a delicious Sunday Roast! Gwithian is on the north coast of Cornwall and has miles and miles of beach. It’s also a surfers’ paradise. So, put all those together it makes for a perfect Sunday for all the family.
Their Sunday lunch menu is varied and caters for those wanting a great joint of meat but also caters for fish lovers and vegans too. Choose from beef topside, Tregothnan venison haunch, or vegan loaf all served with Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, seasonal vegetables and gravy. If you don’t fancy a traditional Sunday lunch but prefer something locally caught, reared or grown then you can choose fish and chips, double beef burger with red onion marmalade or a roasted butternut squash risotto.
Whether you’re a fan of traditional roast beef or a flavorful vegetarian option, the Red River Inn’s Sunday Roast is sure to satisfy your cravings and leave feeling very satisfied!
The Longstore in Truro is a relatively new addition to Lemon Street and is already a firm favourite! You can visit the Longstore from 12-3pm and then again from 5.30pm until late on a Sunday.

Who can resist a proper Sunday Roast during the colder months of the year? For so many families across the UK, it’s one of life’s simplest and most treasured pleasures. Between September and April, at Nancarrow’s Oak Barn go immerse yourselves in an experience like no other. Well-spaced tables, a roaring wood burner and live music set against a pretty backdrop of their Millpond, you will feel a new person once you leave!
Expect all your Sunday favourites plus their home-reared organic meat (beef or lamb). Vegetarian’s do not go hungry either but do specify when booking to be sure you are all happy.
In the summer months, May to August, the farm is open for lighter lunches on Sunday’s. They still showcase their home-reared produce but also the best of what the season has to offer from the salad and veg gardens. With the longer daylight hours and the warmer weather, you also get the added bonus of having time to take a stroll around the farm before or after your lunch.
