June 29, 2013


Roast dinners are one of the greatest British traditions. The family favourite meal is traditionally eaten on a Sunday, however there is nothing to say that you cannot enjoy one mid-week too! Most people look forward to their roast dinner on a Sunday as it gives them something to look forward to before they have to face the dreaded doom of Monday mornings at work. In this article we are going to discuss why a roast dinner makes for the perfect meal out with the family.

Family event

With many of us leading such busy lives it can often be difficult to get the whole family together for a meal. Booking a roast dinner out at a local pub or restaurant every Sunday is a great excuse to get everyone together. As well as enjoying a delicious meal, you can enjoy each other’s company and catch up on everyone’s news from the week.

No cooking or washing up

One of the many benefits of having your roast dinner out at a roast restaurant is that you do not have to do all of the cooking and cleaning up yourself! By the time you have done all the cooking you can often feel quite tired when you finally get to sit down for your meal. Having your roast dinner out at a restaurant means that you can spend all of your time enjoying the company of your family, without having to worry about whether you have cooked the meat for long enough, or remembered to put the vegetables on!

Something for everyone

No matter how young or old you are there will be something that you love about a roast dinner. There is an option for everyone, whether it is beef, pork, turkey or even a vegetarian option like a nut roast. Even if you are not a huge fan of meat you can pile plenty of roast potatoes, mini sausages, Yorkshire puddings and vegetables onto your plate.

Get your five a day

Taking your family out for a weekly roast dinner is a great excuse to get some healthy vegetables in to your children’s’ stomachs. It can often be difficult to get children to eat vegetables, but mixing them in with delicious potatoes and covering them with gravy is a great way to do it. There are plenty of different vegetables to choose from including carrots, broccoli, sprouts and cauliflower to name a few. Going out for a roast dinner every week is much healthier than going out for a pizza or having fast food.

Value for money

Whether you visit a local pub or restaurant for your Sunday roast, you will find that it is usually excellent value for money. Most roast dinners are extremely affordable, even for families on tight budgets. Even at a time of financial uncertainty, you can still afford to treat your family to a weekly roast without feeling guilty about spending the pennies!

Many restaurants and pubs offer great value deals on their roast dinners, such as two for one, or kids eat free. Visiting a carvery is also excellent value for money as you can often treat yourself to a large portion or visit the serving station more than once.
