Wel­come to Novem­ber

Sun­days at this time of the year are the best, aren’t they? Lazy lie-ins, chilly walks punc­tu­ated by a pint, or two, then a packet of crisps torn down the mid­dle for shar­ing, while you wait for some­one else to make you a roast din­ner (and wash up after­wards). If that sounds like your cup of tea (or jug of gravy), we’ve got just the guide for you – with our list of some of the coun­try’s top gas­trop­ubs and the great walks that sur­round them. If you’re stay­ing in and cook­ing, we’ve also got a great way to save a bit of pocket money so you can buy all of the Christ­mas gifts we’ve pulled to­gether for the favourite food­ies in your life (or just you – that’s al­lowed, too). Our bud­get-friendly roasts have bags of flavour. Think stuffed but­ter­nut squash with a cider cream sauce, beef brisket with the best gravy (hon­estly, it is – I’ve tasted it, thor­oughly, so can at­test) and our gor­geous cover star: posh herb and mus­tard toad in the hole. So im­pres­sive, so easy and a great ex­cuse to have friends round. And, just be­fore we de­scend into the full chaos of Christ­mas, we’ve plenty of in­spi­ra­tion for last-minute, fes­tive get­aways, too – from the snowy wilds of Nor­way to the cool-as-a-dill-flecked-cu­cum­ber West Swe­den. Un­til next time...
