    Trying to think of somewhere to go for lunch tomorrow but no more than an hours drive. Would also consider staying closer to Birmingham

    Can anyone suggest somewhere with a nice menu?


    ETA: Can a mod fix the typo in the title?

    A hour's drive from where exactly?

    My Sunday lunches are pretty fucking awesome (sometimes) and may well be less than an hour's drive away.

    An hour drive from Birmingham.

    In my experience it can take an hour to drive from one side of Birmingham to the other.

    No fucking way I'm waiting on you for Sunday lunch. My roast spuds, Yorkshire Pud, Roast, Veggies, Gravy & Co. are ready when they are ready and not sooner or later.

    Dominique’s in Shatterford is lovely but I’m not sure how far from you it is.

    The Fox at Chaddesley Corbett is good - the Swan is also excellent, as is the Leaking Well at Dunhampton (between Kidderminster and Worcester on the A449), the Running Horse between Bewdley and Far Forest, the Royal Forester at Far Forest, the Pack Horse in Bewdley (they are mainly pies - but fantastic, amazing pies - check they do a roast).

    Depending on where you are in Birmingham and how fast you drive, I would put a word in for the Miners Arms at Sling, just south of Coleford in the Forest of Dean - they do the finest food I've ever eaten, their Sunday lunch is £11 and it is spectacular.

    You'll need to book for most of these places, Sunday lunch is very popular with us bumpkins...

    I know they’re not the most fashionable of places, but you really can’t beat a Toby carvery for a good Sunday lunch. Especially if you pay a bit extra for the massive plate with extra meat and Yorkshire pudding option.

    Oops, forgot - The Vine at Clent, they specialise in Game and Fish, their food is amazing and they are very child and dog friendly, and the Holly Bush on the A491 between J4 M5 and Hagley. Not been there in a few years, but they were very good.

    Thanks everyone some great ideas. Dominiques and the pack horse bring back some lovely childhood memories.

    I'm booked in at a_chap's place at 2pm...

    The horse and jockey in Atherstone is my favourite drive out Sunday lunch location. Depending where you are in brum probably more than hour. And is much more east than west, but will throw it in for future ref:

    Rubbish. A huge plate of 4 meats, massive Yorkshire puddings and as much veg and spuds as you can pile on your plate. For not a lot of cash. Winner.

    Don't worry about helping with the washing up, he enjoys it - but do please take a doggy treat for Lily: try and find something that's filled to the brim with sugar, protein and artificial colours...

    Ended up at the Talbot in Knightwick which I recommend after today. Will definitely refer back to this thread when heading out again.
