The British institution of a Sunday Roast is being celebrated this autumn at The Restaurant at The Montpellier Chapter Hotel in Cheltenham.

Reviving its traditional credentials of a time when families come together, The Montpellier Chapter is delighted to offer children the chance to dine for free every Sunday.  

Sunday roasts at The Montpellier Chapter are served with the family in mind.  Carved slices of the roast are brought to the table on oak boards to be served straight to the plate with seasonal vegetables presented separately alongside hearty jugs of gravy for guests to serve themselves.

From sumptuous bread sauce to fluffy Yorkshire puddings, Sunday lunch at The Montpellier Chapter comes with all the trimmings. 

Guests can also opt to share a seasonal dessert, such as apple crumble, which is brought steaming from the oven to be served directly at the table as you would at home.   Jugs of homemade vanilla custard and cream are also on hand to enable diners to serve themselves as desired.

The Montpellier Chapter’s Consultant chef Simon Hopkinson, who starred in his own BBC1 series The Good Cook, is renowned for his best selling book, Roast Chicken. The book shares his philosophy of creating simple, seasonal and classic British dishes using excellent and whenever possible, local ingredients.   Sunday Lunch at The Restaurant at The Chapter echoes this mantra.

Head Chef Tom Rains, who has been working with Simon since the hotel opened nearly 12 months ago, said Sunday lunch represents something very special and a classic British dining institution.

He said: “As a boy when I was growing up, Sundays were all about the roast dinner.  A fabulous joint of meat coupled with delicious vegetables and rich gravy was at the heart of the dinner table while we as a family enjoyed quality family time.  At The Chapter we want to celebrate this tradition and bring people together to enjoy a classic British dining experience with their friends and family. The roaring log fires, the comfy sofas in the library coupled with our family service ethos make The Chapter a perfect location for a family get together this autumn.”

From October 16, all children aged 12 and under will dine for free when accompanied by a full paying adult.  Due to the popularity of Sunday Lunch at The Chapter, booking is advised.   Sunday Lunch at The Restaurant at The Montpellier Chapter starts at £15 for two courses or £17.50 for three courses.
