Sunday Lunch at Barnett Hill
Food for the soul
Join us for the ultimate British classic. Sunday lunch is the perfect excuse to indulge in three courses of succulent meats, seasonal vegetables and decadent desserts. Want to know how the Sunday lunch tradition started? Check out our blog.
Throughout the Industrial Age, almost every household would pop a roast on before heading to church on a Sunday. It had become an all-inclusive act with a kind of religious and social importance to it, and as playwright Henry Fielding exclaimed, “it ennobled our brains and enriched our blood”. The nobility would hang an entire animal on a spit in front of a huge fireplace and slowly roast it, while those who could not afford the larger cuts of meat, let alone a fireplace, would drop off a more modest cut to their local baker en route to church. The baker would use their empty bread ovens to cook the meat and hand it back to the villagers in time for lunch. No doubt in those times this was the best meal anybody had all week, and why the Sunday roast became such an important part of the week.
