Hidden away on pretty New Quebec Street, you will find the independent butcher, deli and restaurant Boxcar. This little gem champions British, ethically sourced meats where you can literally pop in and place an order, then sit down for a three-course slap-up meal. Brought to life by founder Barry Hirst, the menu is heavily focused on meats, obviously, and Boxcar serves up an exceptional Sunday Roast.
Rump of texel lamb is cooked to perfection; soft pink on the inside and served with pea purée, chargrilled peas, tarragon roasted courgettes, roasties, chopped mint and lamb gravy. The rump of Galloway beef is another excellent cut of meat plated alongside parsnip purée, smoked baby beetroot, a crisp Yorkshire pudding, and with a helping of house-made horseradish sauce & bone marrow gravy. These are seriously good looking roasts and absolutely deliver on quality. Top marks.
