The Famous Merry Monk Carvery

We always have a selection of 3 great roasts and a homemade nut roast available varying from succulent roast topside of beef, juicy roast leg of pork, tender breast of turkey, honey roasted gammon and on Sunday lunchtimes enjoy beautiful slow roasted leg of lamb.

All these roasts can be enjoyed with our amazing choice of fresh vegetables, they are so good you will want to go back for more, and at the Merry Monk you can!!  This can be topped off with great Yorkshire puddings, crunchy crackling and flavorsome stuffing and of course lashings of gravy.

For the carvery, please place your order with your server or at the bar and you will be called up in turn.

We manage the queue for you, so you can relax at your table!!
