Easter is just around the corner and we’re certain we aren’t the only ones daydreaming about the impending four day weekend… While restaurants may be closed for now, several are still knocking out seasonal feasts perfect for Easter weekend.
From Home by Nico’s stunning classic Easter roast to Coya’s Peruvian take on the traditional feast, here’s what to order in.
Make sure your Sunday lunch is something to talk about this Easter weekend and order in the stunning menu from Home by Nico, the talented team behind Six by Nico restaurants.
Now delivering nationwide, the Easter feast will kick off with two starters, a Split Pea and Ham Broth, followed by Chicken Liver Parfait with quince and apple chutney. Lamb is always a classic Easter dish and it’ll be rocking up for the main course, as a Lamb Rump with garlic and thyme, served alongside new season potatoes tossed with wild garlic and mint pesto.
Dessert will finish with a Dulce De Leche Mousse, black cherry compote and chocolate soil. All is served alongside a bottle of Barinas Tempranillo, Jumilla.

Skip making a Sunday roast and order in a delicious delivery from The Loveable Rogue. Choose from a traditional chicken or beef roast, served alongside fancied up trimmings. Think caramelised cauliflower and apple veloute with curry oil and fresh apple; cauliflower cheese with a cheddar and herb crumb; vegetable ecrase with celeriac, carrot, chives and carrot crumb.
End on a sweet and top off the day with their pear and vanilla custard trifle with almond crumb – yum.
