Everywhere we drove, there were inns advertising the Sunday Carvery. I guessed that it was something to eat but what?
So, we stopped by The Old Wainhouse Inn to try out The Sunday Carvery. It turns out that it is a cross between the Singaporean buffet brunch and the Ikea canteen lines. The chef carves the beef or lamb roast for you and slaps it on your plate. You then take as much as can fill your plate from large trays of roasted potatoes, blanched green kale, roasted carrots, cauliflower in cream sauce and mashed carrots. It costs about 7 pounds sterling per person.
It wasn't fine dining but it was a hearty meal that was very enjoyable.
As packed as Sunday brunch.

Laden plate of hearty food.
