Last weekend we visited Impossible York to try out their Sunday Lunch offering.   Impossible is housed in the iconic Grade II listed Terry’s Chocolate Orange  building.  It’s beautiful both inside and out.

For Sunday lunch, they offer Beef Rump, Pork Belly or Glazed Celeriac, all served with roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, seasonal vegetables and red wine jus.  I tried the beef rump as I feel that nothing beats roast beef and Yorkshire pudding on a Sunday!  It was more attractively presented than below but I deconstructed it slightly so that you could see everything (still looks absolutely delicious of course!).

Roast Beef Rump

I would wholeheartedly recommend it.  Lots of lovely tender beef, and a nice big Yorkshire.  The seasonal veg were carrots, red cabbage and parsnips and of course roast potatoes.  All perfectly cooked and served with a red wine jus.  Now, sometimes I am not keen on red wine gravy, oftentimes I find it too sweet, but this was lovely – a proper gravy.  They even brought an extra pot of gravy to soak our Yorkshires with!

We also tried the Roast Pork Belly,  with roast potatoes and vegetables tucked underneath and the Yorkshire pudding at the back.  It was tender and succulent.  My husband was particularly impressed by the red cabbage!

The whole menu is available on a Sunday so if you have someone in your party that would like something different then that’s fine.  My son went for the Chicken Thigh Burger, served with bacon jam, lemon aioli, swiss cheese and sweet pickle.  This was served in a brioche bun, with fries and skinny slaw.

He also ordered a side of Halloumi Fries which were beautiful to look at as well as tasty.

There are lots of lovely desserts on the menu, and you can share a Chocolate Fondue between two (with Belgian waffle, marshmallows, honeycomb and strawberries).  Another time I plan to try this!  My son went for the ultimate in comfort desserts – Sticky Toffee Pudding topped with honeycomb and pecan ice cream.  I stole a bit of the honeycomb – and it was to-die-for!

We love it at Impossible, the surroundings are beautiful, the food is delish and whenever we have visited the staff have been lovely.  They also serve a mean bottomless brunch as well as a more refined afternoon tea.
