“Fab Sunday lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

We've been to the Sol several times and always had a great meal so when we found out they were doing Sunday lunches we thought we'd give it a go.
Three of us had roast beef which was absolutely delicious and my son had chicken which he really
There's a great selection of potatoes and vegetables, sauces and gravy - which come in serving dishes rather than on your plate which is brilliant as you can have as much or as little as you want. It was especially good for my 4 year old who can be put off by too much in his plate at once. He was even persuaded to try some broccoli and parsnips which is almost unheard of!
We got our first drink free which was an unexpected bonus. I would recommend Sunday lunch at Sol to anyone - service (even the chef came to the tables to check everything was ok), food and surroundings could not be faulted

“The best sunday lunch in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

I visited Sol Tapas yesterday as they have started to do sunday lunches and knowing how wonderful the food is normally I though we would give it a go !!, as family friendly as ever the lovely and attentive staff made us feel really welcome. We began with some generous starters of beautiful pate and deep fried Brie, done to perfection as always but the "piece de resistance" was the sunday lunch, between us we ordered roast chicken, pork with crackling and Lamb, they arrived on a beautiful serving platter accompanied with huge sausage meat stuffing balls, pigs in blankets and the biggest yorkshire puddings I have ever seen, the vegetables also came in seperate serving platters with crispy roast potatoes and parsnips and a generous selection of seasonal vegatables, even the gravy was homemade and you could taste all the meat juices that had been added, It was lovely to be able to help yourself to everything on the table as appose to having everything piled on a plate, It wasn't expensive either with the mains ranging from £7.95-£10.95.This is a lovely place that makes you feel really welcome and everyone must try it.
