Fish and chips? It's the staple answer when people ask about the best loved British dish. Britain is renowned for diverse international cuisine, but people are often stumped when we ask them about the rest of Britain's traditional fare. roast dinner by ultrakml Today we'll pay homage to the traditional roast dinner, or Sunday roast. It's a meal, it's an age old British tradition, and it's a lovely excuse to hit the pub around midday on a Sunday and unwind. What is a roast dinner? Usually a roast meat of some sort (beef, chicken, lamb or pork are the most common) served with roast potatoes, vegetables, and Yorkshire pudding, covered in gravy. Here are three of our favourite places to enjoy one: Roast dinners The Flask, London The Flask is tucked away in London's aptly-named Highgate village, and is a top spot for al-fresco feasting on roast duck, beef and lamb. You might spot the occasional celebrity here too. The Cornish Arms The Cornish Arms, Padstow, England Pork with crackling, hearty Cornish ales and a refreshing sea-breeze in the pub garden. The Cornish Arms is a great spot for a roast in Padstow thanks to Rick Stein's expertise.  Three Oaks Three Oaks Suckling pig anyone? The roasts at The Three Oaks are lavish and truly traditional, with a dash of unconventionality that brings them to life - throw in some chorizo and apple jam if you fancy, and get your tastebuds going.  Still hungry?
