The Admiral Rodney was built during the 1950′s, next to the site of another pub called The Rodney, which was demolished at the time. The pub is named after an old local hero, George Brydges Rodney who as an admiral defeated a Spanish fleet in 1780 and a French fleet at the Battle of the Saints in 1782.
With stunning views on the edge of a valley, The Admiral Rodney is a great destination. A cosy retreat, the inn is a good base from which to plan a day in beautiful countryside.
The Sunday roast dinner is a Great British pub-food tradition The Admiral Rodney wholeheartedly honour – and as a country pub, it’s our duty to offer the fine folk of Loxley a fitting feast every weekend.
Tuck into Sundays, Vintage style
Sundays at your favourite Vintage are the perfect occasion to gather together your loved ones. We serve a minimum of two of the following hand-carved meats plus a vegetarian option, as always with crispy roast potatoes, fresh vegetables and lashings of gravy…
- Roast beef and Yorkshire pudding
- Roast turkey with stuffing
- Herb crusted loin of sweet-cured pork (sourced from one of the only specialist bacon and gammon curers in the UK still using traditional methods)
- Carrot and nut roast
To wash it all down, we recommend one of our fine wines or seasonal ask ales. Roast beef and real ale – now there’s a rare Sunday pairing.
Make your own traditions
Eating out at your local pub on Sunday isn’t just about the traditional roast. For example, we’ve got braised pork belly and lamb shank for those who prefer a twist on a classic.
At The Admiral Rodney, our freshly roasted Sunday dinners are very popular and whilst we try to serve them until 5pm, once they are gone that’s it until next Sunday! Book a table now to enjoy your Sunday roast with family and friends.
