‘Sundays’ roast dinner carvery has now opened in Cathedral Precincts

Tuesday 14 May

Sundays, the Peterborough restaurant famed for its popular roast dinner carvery on Cumbergate in the city centre, which it ran for 14 years, has now opened up in the Becket Chapel in the Cathedral Precincts.

This time, they will not only be serving roast dinners, but also breakfasts and afternoon teas – all home-cooked and using fresh local produce.

Proprietor David Beever said he and his team are excited about the new venture:

“This is a fantastic location. It’s also a great match between two organisations who both like to see the joys of Sunday (in our case Sunday lunch) roll out through the whole week! It has been lovely to see some of our former regular customers return, as well as to meet some new ones. If you haven’t tried us before, do pop in and sample the Sundays’ welcome. We’d love to see you.”

Sundays also offer takeaway or eat-in roast meat rolls, as well as vegetarian options.

Their opening hours are:

Tuesday to Saturday      

9.30am to 11.30am         Breakfasts
11.30am to 2.30pm         Roast lunches and eat-in/takeaway rolls
1.30pm to 4.30pm           Afternoon teas


11.00am to 4.00pm         Roast lunches and eat in/takeaway rolls

Monday                            Closed                 

There is no need for reservations, although these can be made for groups of 8 or more by contacting David Beever on 07919 916529.  

The Becket Chapel where the restaurant is located dates back to the 12th century. It was part of a building constructed to house relics of St Thomas Becket. They were brought to the Cathedral by Abbot Benedict, who was previously Prior of Canterbury where Becket’s murder took place in 1170.  

In 2016 the beautiful window on the east wall of the building was voted, in a public competition, the East of England’s “best window with a view”.
