Sunday Roast at Cooper’s Cask

Cooper’s Cask on Farm Road, Hove has a loyal following of their Sunday roasts. Having eaten there several times, you can see why: good, old fashioned, home-style cooking with no gimmicks or frills or fancy.

The chef prepares, cooks and serves the food himself and every Sunday, without fail, the place is packed out.

As you can see, it’s pretty generous and well proportioned!

I went for pork, as per, and it was accompanied by roasties, a gigantic yorkshire pudding, cabbage, peas, green beans, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, sweet potato mash, parsnip and parsnip crisps and an actual slab of crackling. Note: I am on Whole30 diet at the moment so I had no gravy on mine and had to donate my yorkie to a dining pal (sob).

The roast potatoes were close to the ones you get at home cooked by your Granny. As much as I hate this word, they were really moist 🙈.

The meat was thinly sliced and a touch on the dry side but granted I didn’t have gravy so there were no juices for it to sit in. The vegetables were overcooked but again if you’re going for the kind of roast your Granny makes – this is it!

BUT THE CRACKLING. OH DEAR LORD, THE CRACKLING…

This slab was all mine and 90% of it was perfection. The guy just needs to close his kitchen off to everything else and just make crackling all day everyday.

So, if you want a gourmet roast, Cooper’s Cask is not for you. If you want a nostalgic, homemade no frills Sunday lunch (ideal with several beers) then this is the guy for you.
