I was looking for a very good Sunday lunch for my wife and I (as it was our 2nd Anniversary) and stumbled upon a review of Bacchus Sunday's. The previous diners had said pretty good things so I have hoped that we would also be blessed with a good quality Sunday lunch. I could not have been happier. The Scotch Egg to start was a joy - salty, sausgae and mushroom meat wrapped around a still runny egg. Yum!! The roast Pork was the best I have eaten (outside of one other place in the West Country) - amazing slow cooked belly, with crunchy crackling, massive Yorkshire Puddings and a gravy so slick and smooth it could have sold me a second hand car!! The puddings were a joy - chocolate mousse and a salted caramel and choc cheesecake. All of this backed up by brilliant, friendly staff. You should all drop what you are doing and book for this coming sunday.

I have to say I was disappointed with my visit to Bacchus Sundays on 14.12.14. The website still describes the old location of 'New York loft style' when it has now moved around the corner into a pretty unattractive looking pub. That being said once you got used to that the venue was ok, it had a good buzz to the place. We ordered and then waited at least 50 minutes for the food to arrive (when prompted about this we were offered a round of drinks which was a nice gesture). But when the food arrived my friend who had chosen the beef actually had to sent it back because it was so tough it was inedible. The member of staff (the manager I think) explained that they had tried a different cut of beef and were 'trying to get the cooking time right, some of it was good and some of it was not'. I'm sorry but a place that does one type of food once a week shouldn't really be hoping for the best on actually getting the meat cooked properly! I had the nut roast which I thought was pretty bland and had a bit of a raw and sticky sort of consistency. There was 3 nice roasties, but only a small amount of cabbage and one chunk of carrot, which was underdone (I don't like veg soft but we ended up stabbing it with the fork and nibbling at it as you could not actually cut through it). The yorkshire was bready and heavy. I was so disappointed with the food after reading some great reviews of the place, maybe we were just out of luck and went on a bad day. I took a friend who was visiting who used to live in the UK and now lives back in Spain who was craving a roast dinner but I was embarrassed with what she ended up with. It wasn't worth the £16 being charged in the slightest and I won't be going back.
Firstly, ignore what you see on the Bacchus Sundays website and via Google, the address is at the Lion & Lamb pub NOT Hoxton Street Studios (nobody will answer the bell there as I found out)! I had the Undecided which is a mixed plate of pork, beef, and chicken roast - great for a sample! It's a huge serving with 1/8 of a chicken breast + two big cubes of pork belly + big slice of beef. The pork was decent although the skin could have been more crackly but the chicken was dry and the beef was chewy so that was not good. The vegies were fabulous - beetroot, potatos, carrots, and cabbage and best of all, THE JUS/GRAVY WAS AMAZING! It had a tangy lemon flavour and although the meat was mediocre, I would come back just for this sauce. Service was lovely!
incredibly good Sunday Roast - as always - 2nd time I've had the pleasure of being served by the Bacchus Staff. Can't really fault the food although they did run out of Cheesecake for desert so didn't get to finish the feast off with that. Only Negative as it's a pop up restaurant the surrounding tables are generally not cleared up in the speed as they should be - so you look around the room and a lot of chaotic tables when people have left and beers and plates and cutlery are still left out. Music could also improve the ambiance - it eventually came on via a DAB Radio towards the end of the meal but through out would be more consistent. However love the food and the staff are great so will be coming back.
I was a bit disappointed with Bacchus Sundays when I visited with my boyfriend. The seating wasn't very comfortable and it felt really crowded with ear splitting music. The food was okay, but the main portion was quite mean - 1 slice of lamb, 2 tiny roast potatoes and 1 piece of beetroot doesn't seem worth the £16 price tag to me. In addition the carrot didn't seem to have been anywhere near a pan of boiling water. It's a shame because most of what was on the plate tasted good especially the yorkshire pudding. On the positive side the staff were friendly and attentive.
I was coming from France to experience an authentic sunday roast. When we arrived at the address stated on the website we were met with a sign that said that it was located at the Lion and the Lamb (a modest looking pub around the corner - nothing at all like I had imagined or that was indicated on the website). It was very run down and dirty looking but perhaps a favourite for the locals. The staff were friendly, so we thought we would give it a go. I ordered a nut roast and was disappointed. The nut roast was more of a lentil and rice filled slice. It was not appetising and I didn't taste any nuts at all. The roast potatoes were VERY dry and the rest of the veggies were passable but nothing special. I would not recommend this pub for a sunday roast to anyone.
It was really only okay. Actually maybe a bit of a rip off for £15 for just a main. They had used the wrong kind of potatoes as roast potatoes, so when you cut into them the inside consistancy wasn't right and a bit soggy on the outside. The yorkshire puddings were overdone and when asked for another one it was the same. The crackling that came with the pork wasn't crisp - looked good but hadn't been cooked enough, so was just brown and fatty. There wasn't much veg, but because they stack the food up on the plate you don't realise till you take it apart that there isn't that much there! The staff were lovely, the nut roast, stuffing, crayfish and mushroom starters were okay but from the reviews and the fact they do this once a week, I thought it would be great.
