Two places to try for Sunday lunch...
Red Lion Hotel & Restaurant & Pub, Sheffield Road, Todwick, S26 1DJ
Tel: 01909 771654
This pub at Todwick crossroads is a local landmark.
Folk drive past it every day. But it’s a good destination for Sunday lunch. No less than five roasts are carved up and served with all the trimmings - fresh vegetables, large home-baked Yorkshire pudding, crisp roast potatoes, mashed potatoes and gravy.
Choose from a half roast chicken lunch for £9.75, topside of beef at £9.29, outdoor-reared pork, roast turkey or a vegetarian lunch for £8.99.
If you just can’t decide, choose two different meats (apart from chicken) and pay £9.29.
For real value, eat after 5pm on a Sunday, when the price of a roast diner falls to £5.95.
Backyard Grill, behind the Station Hotel, Kiveton Park, S26 6NP.
Tel: 01909 772559
The Backyard Grill specialises in quality fresh meat - one of the partners in the venue, and the Station pub, is village butcher Gary Lomas. Its Sunday lunch is a meat-feast carvery. It starts at noon and offers a selection of quality cooked meat from Gary, the in-house butcher, plus seasonal vegetables, Yorkshires and potatoes, all for the bargain price of £5.95. It’s a popular dining destination for families, as under fives eat for free and children over five pay £3.95.
There’s also a singer to entertain lunchers. Advance bookings advised.
