Firehouse’s Oyster Mushroom Wellington
Manchester’s very best cabaret roast can be found at Firehouse, where you’ll not only be treated to a banging Oyster Mushroom Wellington – you’ll also get DJs, drag performers and catwalk dancers, too. Firehouse also serves a great selection of sides, including Cauliflower Cheese, Yorkshire Puddings and extra lashings of gravy, which is always necessary.

Allotment Vegan Eatery’s Aubergine Steak Roast Dinner
It’s no surprise that Manchester’s award-winning vegan restaurant, The Allotment does an incredible roast! You can start off with either the Soup, Cauliflower Wings or Satay Skewers, then the star of the show comes in the form of either an Aubergine Steak roast or a Leek and Potato Cake with all of the trimmings. It’s temporarily closed due to relocation, but when its new site opens on Cathedral Gardens make sure to get yourself down for a Sunday treat!

Owned by that Simon Rimmer fella off of the telly, Greens is a fantastic restaurant in itself – serving up a delectable range of dishes all sourced from the humble vegetable. It’s the same with their Sunday Roast, which consists of a Truffled Mushroom Wellington served up with all the trimmings. It’s truly excellent and well worth the trip down to Didsbury for.
