Sundays are for roast dinners. With the colder weather upon the country, a hearty meal may once again be on Britons’ menus at the weekend.

A new study by Last Minute Cottages analysed data to find the best places in the UK to eat a good roast dinner.

The country’s “Roast Capital” has been named.

Canterbury took the top spot as the best place to get a roast dinner.

It was followed by Newquay and Norwich.

Matthew Fox, CEO of the Snaptrip Group, said: “It was interesting to see Canterbury at the top of the list and London at the bottom, however when you look at the number of top-rated-roasts per 100,000 residents, it’s clear London just doesn’t have enough to go around.”

The last-minute holiday marketplace also surveyed 10,000 Britons on their roast dinners’ preferences.

Some of the weirdest items served with a roast dinner were pancakes, boiled eggs and prawns.

Also mentioned were pork pies, chips and cheesy pasta.

And 84 percent of Britons voted against ketchup and mayonnaise being eaten with a roast.

Britons were being traditional with their roasts.

The most important items to be included in a roast were unsurprising.

For 97 percent of Britons, a roast needs gravy.

Roast potatoes were a must for 94 percent of Britons.

Meat and Yorkshire pudding were also important items for 84 percent of respondents.

Lastly, carrots needed to be included in a roast for 81 percent of Britons.

The least important items were leeks, Brussel sprouts, pigs in blanker, cabbage and cauliflower cheese.

Matthew said: “Our survey also threw up some surprises – nearly half of people don’t think pigs in blankets should be an all-year-round item – all I can say is I know which side of the fence I sit on…”

When it came to meat, beef was the preferred choice for two fifths of Britons.

This was followed by ham and chicken, both at 21 percent.
