Lockdown may be starving us of culture but it doesn’t have to starve us of delicious grub. After being plunged into chaos earlier in the year, many Manchester restaurants have become adept at offering up take-away and home delivery services. If it’s Sunday lunch delivery that you’re after, here’s a few of our favourites worth checking out…

Sam's Chop House

Sam’s Chop House has been serving up Sunday lunch with all the trimmings for years – and 2020 isn’t about to stop that from happening. Their seven-day-direct delivery service brings a variety of Sunday lunch options to homes within a 7 mile (£4.95) or 14 mile (£9.95) radius, allowing you to tuck in immediately or reheat and enjoy later by following their storage/serving instructions. Sam’s Sunday Service is available from £18 per person and features slow cooked beef rump, roast chicken and mushroom wellington with all the sides – all topped off with a sticky toffee pudding for dessert.

Three Little Words

They may be best known for their bespoke cocktails and Manchester Gin distillery but Three Little Words is also home to a premium in-house restaurant which is offering Sunday lunch options that are available for click-and collect from their Walton Street venue. By ordering before 8pm every Friday, customers can enjoy sky-high Yorkshire puddings, crispy roasties, and perfectly pink roast beef via the Three Little Words Sunday roast (from £30). A selection of desserts (gluten free chocolate brownie, anyone?) and pre-made cocktails are also available to end your week right.


Shifting their service to Deliveroo, Ancoats’ favourite Elnecot has continued to keep hungry Mancs happy over 2020’s rollercoaster of a year. When it comes to Sunday lunch, they’re offering up an array of meaty and veggie options to suit any pallet – from 28-day dry aged ribeye of Yorkshire beef (£16) and lemon and thyme butter roasted chicken (£15), to crispy, slow-roasted pork belly (£15) and vegetarian nut roasts (£13) for all the non-meat eaters in the family. Each comes with roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, stuffing, roasted carrots and parsnips, sautéed greens, cauliflower cheese and a rich meat or vegan gravy. Hungry? Us too.

The Sunday Roast Company

Available for delivery to addresses across Manchester City Centre, The Sunday Roast Company delivers meat, veggie and vegan Sunday roasts from noon to 6pm each Sunday. Roast British beef and roast chicken (both £12.50) are unsurprisingly among their most popular options, with each coming with roast potatoes, gravy and vegetables. Veggie and vegan roast cauliflower steaks are also available (£12.50 and £9.50 respectively) and their weekly specials feature twists on the traditional Sunday roast experience.
