Top 50 Gastropubs

Easter pub lunches not to miss in 2024

As Easter approaches, families are on the lookout for fun ways to celebrate together, and what better spot than a cosy pub?

Forget the old idea that pubs are just for adults, they're all about family-friendly experiences. This Easter, instead of the usual routine, gather your gang and head to a Top 50 Gastropub for some quality time. Think crackling fires, tasty food, and maybe even an Easter egg hunt for the kids.

It's a chance to relax, enjoy good company, and indulge in delicious treats. From classic Sunday roasts to tempting desserts, pubs have something for everyone. So, why not shake things up and trade the traditional Easter dinner at home for a laid-back pub outing this year?

Loch & Tyne by Adam Handling, Old Windsor, Berkshire

Offering 2 courses for £50 and 3 for £60 this Easter Sunday you can pick from an array of wonderful dishes. Why not kick things off with a cheese & onion tart, or a London Burrata with aubergine and chilli? Move onto the main event and dive into a succulent lamb shoulder with mint sauce and all the trimmings including Yorkshire puddings and cauliflower cheese.
