With the end of the summer BBQs comes the return of the Sunday roast dinner and, after the weather we have had this August, it couldn't have come sooner.

A cosy pub makes the ideal location for a delicious roast, so we asked Google where to eat the best pub Sunday roast dinner in Suffolk.

These are the top-rated roasts in the region:

1. The Froize

Where: Woodbridge

Rating: 4.8

The Froize hosts several events but performs particularly well on Google for their roast dinner. 

The pub-restaurant specialises in fresh and local produce so, whilst there isn't yet an up-to-date roast menu on their website, the images of past Sunday lunches can make your mouth water. Tender red meat, crispy roast potatoes and lashings of gravy. Delicious. 

2. Fox and Goose

Where: Fressingfield

Rating: 4.7

The Sunday lunch at The Fox and Goose is priced at two courses for £27 and three for £34. The menu is extensive - a choice of beef or pork for meat eaters, and two fish choices too. 

The potatoes - a choice of mille-feuille or roasted, are both crispy and flavoursome, and both roasts are served with a range of vegetables for diners to enjoy. This is a slightly more up-market Sunday lunch, where the choices aren't necessarily a classic roast, but there is something for everyone here.

Perhaps the Sunday roast with the largest range of meat and meat-alternative options, The Ufford Crown scored a whopping 4.7 on Google. 

The menu is extensive - diners can choose between seven different roasted 'meats' and all meals are served with roast potatoes, a Yorkshire pudding, seven vegetable mash, green beans, savoy & jus. All are priced between £15.50 and £19.50.

4. The Horseshoes Inn

Rating: 4.7

The Horseshoes Inn comes in as one of our most affordable Sunday roast dinners, costing between £10.95 and £13.95 for a choice of three meats and one vegetarian option.

The meals are all served with seasonal vegetables, a Yorkshire pudding and gravy. What more could you want for just over £10?

5. The White Horse

Where: Stonecross Green

Rating: 4.7

The White Horse is one of the more obscure pubs to receive a 4.7 rating on Google. Their website does not feature any roasts but has proved popular with the reviewer for their Sunday lunch.

One happy customer commented: "For a family get-together, this felt more like a day out than just a pub meal out. Superb food. Amazing service, lots to do for the children. All pubs should be like this. Truly amazing."

6. The Lion Inn

Where: Woodbridge

Rating: 4.7

The Lion Inn in Little Glemham near Woodbridge changes the roast they have on offer weekly, so diners can check a specials board to see what is on offer. 

The only pub so far to advertise that they serve their roasts with both roasted and new potatoes, their Sunday lunches sound like they are piled high with delicious food and lashings of gravy.

7. The Butt and Oyster

Where: Pin Mill

Rating: 4.6

The Butt and Oyster has an excellent reputation around Suffolk for its fresh seafood. However, it has scored highly on Google ratings for its roasts as well.

While it is early, its Christmas dinner menu sounds divine: Roast Crown of Norfolk Turkey, roast potatoes, pig in blanket, sage & onion stuffing, vegetables, and gravy. They are keeping it local and fresh, all served with a beautiful view of the River Orwell. Perfect to relax on an autumn day.
