Exploring Food: Madison Soul Sunday Review

It’s no secret that I love a good brunch, but my first and true love is Sunday roast! Now that the weather is a lot colder (we even had snow last month!), you’re going to want something more filling and warming then the usual weekend brunch. And nothing quite matches a Sunday roast. I was recently invited to the gorgeous Madison restaurant and bar to check out their Soul Sunday menu.

First Thoughts

I’ve been to the bar at Madison a couple of times now, and the view still takes my breath away. The entrance to the rooftop restaurant and bar is via One New Change shopping centre. Taking the lift up to the top floor, you get a unique view of St. Paul’s cathedral. Have your camera at the ready, as it goes up quite quickly!

There are two main bar areas, each with an array of tables and benches or chairs. Some are perfect for cosy date nights for couples, but the bigger tables can fit larger groups – perfect for parties or special occasions.

We were greeted at the restaurant entrance and swiftly taken to our seats. The restaurant itself was buzzing despite it only being around 12:30pm. The interior was very sleek but had a laid back feel to it. Our server was great and had some fantastic recommendations for food and cocktail options.

So What’s The Sunday Roast Like?

Before we talk about the great choice of proteins for main, it’s worth mentioning that the starters were absolutely delicious too! I had the mackerel and salmon tartare which was not only a beautiful looking plate, but beautiful tasting too.

The menu offers beef, chicken, pork and even fish options (sorry to my Veggie readers), all with a twist. For example the beef roast, comes as a succulent sirloin steak sliced and served with a delicious gravy. The sides are your usual roast suspects of roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and horseradish. Served alongside this, is also a tasty cauliflower cheese which was delicious but not completely necessary.

The serving size was generous, so it’s not surprise that I had to force myself for dessert. But as always, I’m so glad that I did. I went for the chocolate and praline fondant which did not disappoint!

Final Thoughts…

View from Madison

The food was very good and the entertainment and vibe was perfect for a chilled Sunday date. I still the think the view and venue itself is my favourite thing about Madison.

The deal includes a half bottle of wine per person, so a full bottle between a table of two if you go for the same wine. Its great value for money and makes for a memorable and romantic date.

But as far as Sunday roasts go, it was too far from a traditional roast for my liking. However, I would still highly recommend checking it out as the food is still very tasty. Not to mention that the view is one of a kind and the ambience makes for a perfect afternoon out.

Times & Cost:

Sundays 12pm-5pm

3 courses incl. a half bottle of wine for £38

    Growing up around traditional Sunday roast has made me no favorable to them but, this menu would suit me perfectly. I much prefer the smaller portions and variety of flavours to the one huge plate full type of dinner. I am only just down the road from these guys, I will have to visit:)

    Oh my, what a stunning venue this is. The food looks amazing as well, I love the twist on the classic Sunday roast and I would certainly go here for food:)

    Wow! This place really does look incredible! I love your description of the sleek but laid-back decor, sounds like a very welcoming place! Such a shame they don’t have much for us vegetarians though! However, your praline fondant looks absolutely mouthwatering!

    To be honest, that roast is exactly to my liking! I love the look of the steak, and those potatoes look so tasty. I think it is a great location and the price is pretty good too. I will definitely be considering here on my next weekend visit x

    That view looks amazing. I haven’t had a roast in ages so love the look of this, even if it isn’t quite traditional. Yum.
