One of my favourite things is to go for a good Sunday Roast. I thought I would try something out and introduce The Sunday Roast Diaries. To be honest, it’s something I’ve wanted to add to my blog for a while but I’m not too sure how frequent the entries will be. Obviously, as I’m based in Scarborough, a lot of the entries will be Yorkshire Coast based and the surrounding areas. I thought I would start off with my most recent visit which was to The Star Inn, Sancton.
After visiting Sancton last year to stay at The North Star Club, I was actually aware of The Star Inn but we never actually paid a visit and opted for having our own BBQ. It’s a place which has come highly recommended from a fair few people so as soon as we had a free Sunday, we headed over to Sancton. The Star Inn is just under an hour’s drive from Scarborough. I was really hoping this Sunday Roast would be worth it.
Their Sunday Roast is served between 12pm and 3pm and we had reserved a table for 2.30pm. We got there a little bit early, so this gave us the opportunity to have a little look around and choose from their extensive long list of different gins. I love that it’s a traditional pub with quite a classy dining area. You could tell it was a popular place for a special occasion or a big family meal.
The Sunday Lunch menu was actually pretty extensive. It wasn’t all just Roast dinners but had a nice selection of seafood and classic dishes like Steak and Ale Pie and Bangers and Mash. Obviously, we both had our heart set on the Traditional Sunday Roast and we both went for the Laverack’s of Holme beef topside which was priced at £16.95.
After we kicked things off with some freshly baked bread, our Beef Sunday Roast arrived. The Beef was served with a couple of duck fat and thyme roast potatoes, creamed mash potato and their award winning Yorkshire pudding alongside a dish of additional vegetables. First of all, you can very much see why the Yorkshire Puddings are award winning. They were pretty incredible and they are also available as a starter. I’m not going to lie; I was tempted by that starter to do double the Yorkshire pudding. The beef was pretty damn delicious too; it was served pink but full of flavour and a very large portion too.
Although we had a look at the dessert menu, nothing really caught our eye. To be honest, we was both pretty full from the main course. I really enjoyed our Sunday Roast at the Star Inn and will definitely be back again soon. I’m hoping we can visit on an evening or for lunch during the week. Although the lunch was certainly on the pricey side of things, you can see why. You are getting a great service with exceptional award winning food!
