British Roast Dinner Week
29th Sep 2014
29th Sept – 5th Oct
Record number of pubs put their best food forward in Britain’s Roast Dinner Week competition.
The numbers are in, the votes are being counted but one fact has already been established. This year will be the biggest and best British Roast Dinner Week yet after an 80% increase in entries compared to last year.
Last year The Sunray, in Osmington, Dorset increased sales of roast dinners by 44% by offering ‘round-the-clock’ carveries instead of just in the evenings. Customers were also buying extra drinks, helping the Sunray to boost its bar sales by more than £1,000 at the same time.
Last year’s winner, The Kyloe in Edinburgh, experienced a three-fold increase in roast dinner volumes after claiming the title, while 2012 winner the Phoenix Inn in Hartley Witney, attracted more customers and lots of positive feedback on TripAdvisor. We’ve got a great roast recipe from Kyloe.
