Finding a carvery in Manchester when you don’t have a car is near impossible. Unless you’re jumping aboard the bus to Bury, Bolton or Oldham to curb your craving in the nearest Toby, the city centre is limited when it comes to bottomless plates of roasties – until now.
Freight Island has launched an all-you-can-eat carvery with unlimited Yorkshire puddings and roasties every single Sunday. Arguably the best two things on a Sunday roast, the food hall has introduced the ‘Seconds’ concept, which is its own take on the traditional carvery complete with either roast Highland beef, marmalade-glazed gammon, roast Cheshire turkey or a roasted squash and wild mushroom wellington.
Joining the attractive menu of mains is an array of trimmings, including Yorkshire puddings big enough to rehome in, roasties, buttery mash, honey glazed carrots and lashings of a 48-hour steeped gravy – because you can never have enough.
Also on the menu is a pot of thick molten cheese that you can slop on top of your carvery for an extra £4. As well as this, there’s a huge honey-mustard pigs in blankets sharer and a sage and onion stuffing sharer, that you can add to your roast for an additional £4 each.
Coming in at £11 for kids, £18 for adults or £21 for an XXL plate, which also comes with a choice of three meats, diners can head back up to the carvery table and re-fill their plates as many times as they’d like. The carvery is hosted from 12pm – 8pm out on the terrace and is soundtracked by Freight Island’s regularly rotating roster of DJs and entertainers.
