This weekend, give yourself a break from the endless monotony of cooking, cleaning and washing up. Instead, take your Sunday to the next level with a decadent roast for two people from the mighty fine Bar 44, Clifton. You and your mate will be tucking into a sumptuous Spanish style sharing roast platter – served up with a bottle of house red or white wine and still or sparkling water. Get involved – there's a choice of overnight sidra roast Belly pork, morcilla (it's a bit like black pudding), apple and roasting juices, or sirloin of 45 day dry aged Hereford beef, chorizo Yorkshire pudding and roasting juices. Both of these stunning centre pieces come served with roast bravas potatoes, jamón fat, thyme, garlic truffled Manchego cauliflower cheese, Heritage carrots, hazelnut, aubergine, Tenderstem broccoli, kale and piquillo peppers – what a feast!

Famed for serving some of the best steaks in the city, it's no surprise that The Ox also offers one hell of a Sunday roast – think succulent roast beef, perfectly risen homemade Yorkshires and all the trimmings. Accompanied by a nice full-bodied glass of vino (there's a choice of red or white – it's your call), this is the ultimate treat for that most hallowed of days: Sunday.

Hidden on the long, long Kellaway Avenue is The Gloucester Old Spot pub and within its freshly painted walls is a top-notch roast! Head on over this Sunday and take your pick from their fabulous menu and pair it with either a pint of Butcombe beer or Thatchers, a 175ml glass of Shiraz or Chardonnay or a soft option. All roasts come served with braised red cabbage, hasselback carrots, piccolo parsnips, seasonal greens and Yorkshire pudding, and for your main event, there's a choice of beef, lamb, pork, or nut roast. Bliss.

Featuring a full spread of painstakingly sourced, slow-roasted meat dishes and luscious, hearty vegetarian offerings, it'll turn heads, fill tummies and live long in the memory. If you're after a recommendation, we'd go the whole hog and order an extra starter and a dessert (along with a large glass of red...before retiring home for a well-deserved nap).

Head over to the cosy and comfortable Shakespeare pub in lovely old Totterdown for a Sunday feast that is big on flavour and creates zero washing up.

Suckling pig in a Sunday roast? Yes please! Have you ever trekked far enough up Gloucester Road for it to turn into the lesser known Filton Road? Thought not... Well, dear Wriggler, it's time for you to put on your walking boots and make the long pilgrimage, because tucked away up this mysterious hill lies Zanky's, and Zanky's, my friend, is somewhere that you need to visit. The flavours, ingredients and techniques of Sardinian are vitally important to Zanky's; head chef Fabio was taught to cook by his Sardinian grandfather, and the beautiful Italian island still exerts a clear influence on Fabio's cookery today.
