Sundays are for sleep-ins and a good ol’ wholesome Sunday roast.

Sundays are for rest and recovery, and so what better way to cap off your weekend than with a comforting roast. To keep your insides warm and your outlook rosy this winter, here are the best spots for the classic meal of succulent meats, roast veggies and all the trimmings.

Watson EQ, Moore Park

Every Sunday from 11:30am, Moore Park’s local pub is serving up a delicious roast with a rotating menu each week. Expect meats including beef rump cap, crispy pork belly and slow-roasted lamb shoulder served with roasted vegetables and Yorkshire pudding, and drizzled in sauces like red wine jus, cider gravy, mint jelly and more. There are also weekly wine specials to match and acoustic performances on the deck from midday. Find out more here.
