Reviews prepare future customers at Viaduct for an "excellent Sunday lunch". Viaduct serves British gastropub favourites with options for different dietary needs.

One customer told Tripadvisor: "We had roast beef, Yorkshire pudding and plenty of perfectly cooked veg. The beef was so tender and melted in the mouth. My partner had a veggie option which was so tasty and the truffle and Parmesan chips were to die for!"

This is a great option if you have any gluten-free loved ones at the table.
