Bottomless Sunday Roast / Steam Bristol

Three words: Bottomless. Sunday. Roast. Need I say anymore?

We were recently invited down to Steam in Clifton, Bristol to try their Bottomless Sunday Roast - the first of its kind in Bristol. Steam is a welcoming and cosy pub that is tucked away by Clifton Down Station and is also home to the rather well-known SoCal Brunch with bottomless mimosas and prosecco (these guys really like bottomless meals here - they don't believe in an empty glass!) 

So, what does a Bottomless Sunday Roast entail? A Bottomless Sunday Roast at Steam involves two hours of eating and drinking with unlimited prosecco or house wine (and if you don't like prosecco or wine, don't worry - you can also opt for beer, ale or soft drinks too) The food includes a selection of nibbles to start and then a roast dinner.

When we arrived we were given a Sunday roast menu. The options were chicken, pork or beef, or a mushroom, brie and cranberry wellington for veggies. Lewis and I both opted for beef which was quite unusual - we never usually order the same meal at a restaurant but a few tables around us had already ordered the beef and it just looked so good; neither of us could resist! I ordered a glass of prosecco and Lewis ordered an ale to get the 'bottomless' ball rolling.

First up, we were served our starter that is included with the botttomless roast. It was a little platter to share which consisted of a prawn cocktail, cuts of bread, chicken parfait and hummus. It was a good sized starter to share and a highlight for me was the chicken parfait - it was so tasty. The hummus was a little bit on the bland side (just to have with bread) but the prawn cocktail was also delicious. The prawns were fresh and the cocktail sauce was flavoursome.

Once we had demolished the starter, it was time for our mains. Even though the lunch was bottomless, we did find that when we ran out of drinks they were not topped up straight away. At the start we were asked (via the menu) not to ask for bottomless top-ups at the bar (as, understandably, it can get busy) however sometimes it was difficult to catch the waiter's eye. Once we did, however, they were topped up with no problems.

The roast was absolutely delicious. I am a huge fan of roast dinners and this one certainly did not disappoint. We were given generous cuts of tender beef with a huge homemade Yorkshire pudding accompanied by green beans, swede, carrots, baby potatoes and gravy. There was also cauliflower cheese which I unfortunately don't like - but don't worry, Lewis saw to the whole bowl! The meat was cooked well; the Yorkshire pudding was perfect (crispy yet fluffy inside) and the veg was simple yet tasty. The gravy was also just how I like it: thick and flavoursome. All in all, good marks for the roast.

As we were coming to the end of our roasts (and entering ultimate full mode), we ordered a final drink each to wash everything down with. I stayed with prosecco and Lewis ordered a glass of red wine.

The pub itself was inviting and cosy. There was a nice, relaxed atmosphere and the staff were friendly. There was also a large outdoor area with lots of comfy seats and heaters that I can imagine being the perfect place for cocktails in the summer - I'll have to go back and test it out when it's warmer...

Overall, the Bottomless Sunday Roast at Steam was a tasty experience. I love nothing more than eating roasts and day drinking prosecco on a Sunday, so this was the perfect Sunday treat. The food was really good and we both left feeling full and content. If you are a fan of roast dinners and boozy lunches, I would highly recommend visiting!

The Bottomless Sunday Roast is £28.50 or, alternatively, you can opt for just the roast without the bottomless drinks for £12.95.
