As usual, I am always on the hunt for a decent Sunday roast in the City Centre and the latest place for me to hit is Neighbourhood. You will have seen them feature a few times here before, but this is the first time I have visited on a Sunday and the ambiance was perfect. Low music, chilled out vibes and not so rammed that you can’t move, Neighbourhood is ideal for nursing those hangovers and topping up those tummies.
Settled with a Mimosa, it was the perfect opportunity to catch up with some blog friends and take an hour out for myself. I have been so busy with work and my Masters lately, it was nice to forget it all for a bit.
To kick things off we enjoyed some warm soft bread with dips, the olive tapenade being my favourite and one that I pretty much polished off on my own.
Onto the star of the show and I chose the Sirloin of Beef with all the trimmings.
I quite liked that the meat was served as one thick slice rather than a few slices of thinner meat. It had been seasoned beautifully and cooked medium so still soft and buttery. The roast potatoes had a crispy skin and soft, fluffy centre whilst the vegetables were adequate, if not on a the small side. My yorkshire pudding was cold but soon warmed up with a glug of gravy, which is served separately and just the way I like it. I hate it when restaurants assume to know how much gravy you would like on your Sunday roast.
At £17.50 it is on the pricier side and I would have liked to see more ‘trimmings’ included, perhaps some stuffing, pigs in blankets or cauliflower cheese? Just something a little bit more to give it that edge over other roasts in the City Centre, although if you are around this area of town, the flavours are there and the atmosphere is perfectly chilled out. Just the right balance for a Sunday.
I dined as a guest of Neighbourhood and was not asked to pay for my meal.
