Fuller’s teams up with chef Brian Turner to showcase Sunday Roasts

Fuller, Smith and Turner PLC, the premium pubs and hotels business, has partnered with Brian Turner CBE as ambassador of its amazing Sunday Roasts across its Managed Pubs and Hotels.

Giving Fuller’s Sunday Roasts his stamp of approval, Turner has been working with Fuller’s Executive Chefs finding out what brings the Fuller’s Sunday Roast to life. Working with local suppliers, including Hampshire-based Owton’s Butchers, Fuller’s chefs only work with the best seasonal ingredients from local suppliers (including Hampshire-based Owton’s Butchers), cooking everything fresh in each pub kitchen.

The Fuller’s Sunday Roast boasts lashings of gravy, vegetables, roast potatoes, and Yorkshire puddings all day. However, the experience does not end there, selected Fuller’s pubs are now also offering Sharing Roasts – perfect for a family or a group of friends to get together.

Every Fuller’s pub has its own character, this means each will be adding their own personal touch: from recommending local walking or cycling routes to enjoy before or after your Sunday Roast, to ensuring children have their own fun too with a Kid’s Table. Selected pubs will also have their own label English sparkling wine, which pairs perfectly with their Sunday Roasts.

Turner will be hosting a number of events across the estate in the coming months. Sharing his passion for the great British Sunday Roast and Fuller’s story of locally sourced ingredients, skilled chefs, excellent service and thoughtful extra touches that make Fuller’s Sunday Roast stand out from the crowd.

Turner said, “Fuller’s is the pinnacle of fantastic pubs. It only works with the very best, whether that be suppliers, ingredients, recipes, service with a smile or chef talent. It has been a real pleasure to witness the pride that everyone takes in the Fuller’s food offer.

'Every Fuller’s chef works to the highest of standards and has the perfect customer experience in mind in everything they do. Fuller’s food offer is in a league of its own and its Sunday Roast is just one example of the amazing work the team is doing.”

Paul Dickinson, Director of Food at Fuller’s, said, “To work with a hero of the industry whose career has been all about putting Britain on the culinary global map is an absolute privilege. Brian is proving to be a real inspiration to our people and I have long admired his career and expertise as a chef. He is the perfect partner to showcase our Sunday Roasts.

“Our local ingredients, hand-picked by our carefully selected suppliers, are the perfect building blocks for our Sunday Roasts. However, it is the mastery of our chefs that really sets our Sunday Roasts apart. Our Chefs are all part of Fuller’s Chefs’ Guild, which supports them with the learning, development and classical cookery skills they need to advance their mastery and craftsmanship as chefs.'

Dickinsonl concluded, “Our aim at Fuller’s is to put the ‘Great’ back into British pub food – real food cooked by real chefs. Our Sunday Roasts complete the perfect British Sunday, especially when tried with an Only at Fuller’s Bloody Mary – a secret recipe created by one of our mixologists.
