So you spent all last night downing shots in Slouch and now you’re struggling through Sunday. We recommend picking yourself up, taking a walk, and settling down for a roast. You know it’s the only way. So check out our top choices for a Sunday roast in Glasgow. We’ve even listed the nearby hotspots to take a stroll to.
The Butterfly and the Pig Southside
What’s near? Queens Park for a stroll. The Tramway for a bit of culture. Shawlands for a spot of shopping.
The ubiquitous Sunday spot, The Bungo is open for brunch (and some damn fine Bloody Marys), Sunday roast, and evening drinks. Right in the heart of the southside, these guys have one of the best Sunday roasts in the city. Usually consisting of perfectly cooked beef, huge yorkies, and crispy roast potatoes, served with flavoursome veg, it’s a great meal to hang out and read the papers over. The show sport, they let dogs and kids in, and they’re a great place to while away an afternoon.
What’s near? Cresswell Lane for quirky shopping spots, their own rooftop terrace for drinks, and Jinty McGinty’s for Sunday night music sessions
One of Glasgow’s most famous restaurants, The Ubiquitous Chip prides itself on serving good Scottish food with a refined twist. This beautiful spot is situated on magical Ashton Lane, meaning you get to stroll under the fairylights to this venue. Their Sunday roast is inspired by Scotland’s own larder, and whether you have beef, chicken, or a veggie option, you know it’s of the highest quality.
What’s near? Kelvingrove Park for a wander, Ashton Lane for post-dinner drinks, The Grosvenor Cinema for a Sunday evening movie.
It doesn’t get more picturesque than this converted church on a leafy west end road. Part of the old Cottiers Church, Leiper’s Attic is situated in a cosy nook upstairs, with sloping roofs and lovely lighting. For their classic Sunday roast, you can pick from one, two, or three courses, all for under £20. The roast changes weekly and there’s a decent selection of starts and desserts to kill off that hangover.

What’s near? You’re in Finnieston so right by the park. It’s also been named one of the coolest areas in the UK. You’ll figure it out.
Head to the Butchershop if you’re really keen on great meat. It’s what they specialise in. This classy restaurant serves up a traditional roast with sliced roast sirloin of Borders beef, or bone in Ayrshire pork chop. If you’re feeling particularly meaty, go for the 35 day dry-aged roast rump of Scotch beef, carved at your table. Go on, this is one of the best Sunday roasts in Glasgow.
What’s near? The Kings Theatre for entertainment, Bath Street for bevvies, the Clyde for a wee walk.
Mini by name, and Mini by nature, Mini Grill is a teeny tiny restaurant that books up fast. Their Sunday roast has won awards, and so it should have as these guys take their food really seriously. A range of meats are served up with giant yorkies, rich gravy, and plenty of veg. The staff are friendly, the food is great, and it’s right in the centre of the city. What more could you want?
Guy’s Cafe Bar and Restaurant
What’s near? The city centre for some shopping, Glasgow Green for a stroll, Merchant City itself for some great drinking spots.
Taking the crown for one of Glasgow’s maddest restaurants, we always of Guy’s as a big hug of a place. With quirky mismatched decor, and a menu that makes no sense, yet is flipping delicious, it’s one of the best places to spend a Sunday. They’re one of the best places to go for a Sunday roast in Glasgow, with a choice of beef or chicken available every week. There’s also a selection of “tapas” dishes, that were perfectly designed for a hangover, featuring items like steak pie, mince and tatties, and tandoori spiced chicken.
