Best Places to eat Sunday Lunch, Pocklington, Yorkshire

Best Places to eat Sunday Lunch, Pocklington, Yorkshire

I love a good Sunday dinner, roast beef, Yorkshire pudding and all the trimmings.  Or roast pork and apple sauce, I am not fussy.  In our house all Sunday dinners come with Yorkshire puddings though, I don’t hold with this idea that you only get Yorkshires with beef – no, no, no!  Anyway, to that end I decided to write a post on the best places to eat Sunday lunch in the Pocklington area (covering York, Malton and Beverley too).  I asked on my local Facebook page and these are the places nominated for the best Sunday lunch in Pocklington and surroundings.  If a comment was made with the recommendation, I have included it. 

If I get chance to visit any of these places (and I would like to!) I’ll give them a review and take photos for you to see.  (If you own one of these places, send me a few words about your Sunday dinners and I will add them to the post.  If you would like a full review, drop me an email – will work for food 😊)

Have a look at my list of family friendly restaurants in York too.

  • Visited the Melbourne arms based on the reccommendations yesterday and was completely disappointed and underwhelmed by the entire experience-poor service, an hours wait and the food wasnt good! It just goes to show that the best Sunday lunch ever is open to extreme variations in personal opinion!

    • Ahhh!! Oh no – I am sorry as I feel responsible now! One of my favourites is The Gait at Millington – perhaps try there next? If you don’t like it though I shall have to go into hiding! Nikki x
