Sunday roast lovers in Bristol will have to wait a whopping four years to get a table at the pub with the longest waiting list in the world.
The tucked-away Bank Tavern on John Street is the most difficult eatery to get a reservation – anywhere on the planet.
The award-winning boozer now has a waiting time of 1,461 days for one of its in-demand Sunday lunches that cost £16.95.
Researchers found the hardest restaurants to get into across the world by looking at TikTok content and online reviews.
The pub, tucked away in the centre of the city, has just seven tables, with space for up to 40 diners.
Tables can only be reserved for an hour and 45 minutes, with staff estimating that they serve around 160 roast dinners a week.
Speaking in 2020, landlord Sam Gregory said: ‘We don’t repeat the same menu and although we always have beef we also do pork, some vegetarian options, and perhaps venison or poultry.
‘We change the starters and desserts weekly so the menu is never the same.’
‘Most of it though is down to the herculean effort of our head chef and kitchen team.’
The Bank Tavern’s meat is sourced from West Country farms.
Regulars are even are known to chip in with surplus produce from their allotments.
The Observer Food Monthly Awards named the Bank Tavern’s roast the best in Britain in 2019.
The pub, which was refurbished during lockdown, also topped the 2018 Bristol Good Food Awards.
