Shears Yard earnt itself a whopping 85% on the ‘Rate Good Roasts’ scale

A restaurant in Leeds has been named as having one of the very best Sunday roasts in the whole of the UK.

Shears Yard on The Calls is already beloved by locals for its ‘perfectly cooked’ Sunday dinners – and now it’s getting national recognition for them too.

The eatery was awarded the gong by reviewers Rate Good Roasts, which rated its offering amongst the top 10 best in the country.

Coming in at number nine, it’s the highest-rated Yorkshire eatery to appear on the list – closely followed at number ten by York restaurant Chopping Block.

Further afield, our neighbours in the north west also performed very well – with celebrity chef Tom Kerridge’s Manchester restaurant The Bull and Bear topping the chart at number one, joined by The Wheatsheaf Inn in Brigsteer, Cumbria  (no. 3), Crossby’s Mustard and Co (no. 4), The Bank in Delph (no. 6), and Manchester’s Edinburgh Castle (no. 7).

Ten different elements are considered when rating each restaurant, with that then converted into a percentage overall

A sample Sunday roast menu listed on Sheaf Yard’s website features sumptuous sounding mains like roast sirloin of beef; overnight braised pork shoulder; a leek, potato and truffle wellington; tikka marinated cauliflower with gooseberry pickle, and grilled plaice fillets with dill hollandaise.

Traditional mains are served with all the trimmings, including roast veggies, lashings of gravy and giant Yorkshire puddings (of course), and the list is also accompanied with a tempting selection of starters and desserts if you’re looking to go all out.

Think fresh oysters with togarashi, yuzu, spring onion; homemade bread and flavoured butter, or corn fed chicken and ethical foie gras terrine, chicken fat, chicken skin, pickled shallot and grapes to start, and sweet treats like sticky toffee pudding, chocolate brownie, or a cheeseboard to finish.
