There is a reason why roasts are big in the UK. It’s cold ALL OF THE TIME. And what’s the best way to warm up on a cold wintery day? Food, duh! Especially juicy roast meats, caramelised roast veggies (aka potatoes), loads of gravy and Yorkshire puddings of course.
Here’s where to find Perth’s best winter roasts to warm you up.
The Butcher's Arms
The Butcher's Arms is sitting pretty on St George's Terrace and trust us when we say it's worth a trip into the city on the weekend for their Sunday roast. From 11:30am to 3pm on Sundays, you can get a two course roast for $39 or three epic courses for $49. There's plenty of options on the menu, but our picks would be Yorkshire pudding for entree, roast pork belly with crackling for main and apple and rhubarb crumble for dessert.
The Rose & Crown Hotel
Every Sunday from 12pm, the good ol’ Rose and Crown in Guildford carve up a delicious roast. Served with all the trimmings (yes, Yorkshire puddings included), this bad boy is sure to make Sunday your favourite day of the week.
The Brisbane Hotel
Those legends at The Brisbane Hotel are dishing up a very pretty roast special every Tuesday night. $25 will get you roast chicken with corn on the cob, honey glazed carrots, duck fat potatoes and a red wine jus, plus a glass of house wine, beer or cider.
The Irish really know their roasts. Head to JB O’Reilly’s in West Leedy on a Sunday and you will be treated to the roast of your dreams. Choose from roast beef, chicken, lamb or pork for just $24 plus all the trimmings or grab all four meats plus trimmings for $30. You can’t beat that.
For more Sunday roast goodness, Fibber McGee’s has you covered. Their Sunday roast lunch is served with veggies, stuffing, roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and gravy of course. $25 for the lot!
$15 is all you need to enjoy roasted deliciousness at The Vic in Subiaco. Available all day every Sunday, you’ll get all the trimmings smothered in delicious gravy. Be sure to book ahead!
The Inglewood Hotel
The Inglewood Hotel is onto a good thing. Their Sunday roast with all the trimmings (including their signature Yorkshire pudding) will only set you back $25.
The South Beach Hotel
Pubs and roasts go hand in hand and The South Beach Hotel is no exception. The Sunday roast changes weekly so check the blackboard!
