Sunday Roast in Bern?

Anyone know anywhere?

The two "British" pubs I know Pickwick's & Nelson's don't. I think they're really missing a trick here and told them so down at Pickwick's.

Not sure I can be bothered to make it myself at home. I've asked a couple of people and they see to think it'll mean a trip to Zurich!

Re: Sunday Roast in Bern?

No need to go to Zurich. It is fairly easy to make, it just needs some organising and following a recipe. On Sunday I made roast lamb with mint sauce, carrots, broccoli, roast potatoes and gravy. It took me 90 minutes, but it tasted really nice. Roast at 230 deg for 20 minutes, then use a roasting bag, it keeps the meat moist & tender, & no need to baste. I bought everything in Lidl.

I was quite the cook in my day so I could whip up a good roast myself. It's just me at the moment so it's not really worth the time investment.

I was hoping there's a British Pub in Bern, tucked away somewhere. Sunday Roast, Sunday Papers, good ales without the washing up!

The Lion pub in Zurich does a Sunday roast. Never tried it - just seen it advertised. Pot Belly in Adliswil used to do one. There was a EF regular who used to organise an EF event around it.

Either way it looks like a big time investment. I like to keep my Sundays lazy but I'll be sure to have a look at the above suggests when in Zurich. Cheers All!

Re: Sunday Roast in Bern?

In the meantime visit the Altes Tram Depot in Bern. It has it's own brewery and decent food. Views are pretty good, but take your own newspaper.

Ah! Right by the bear pit. Looks like a good stop. Thanks for the suggestion.
