When Man v Roast opened back in 2017, they rocked our world with their takeaway carvery dinners and they’ve been doing it ever since. Now, in the depths of the lockdown, their takeaways are the ultimate comfort food. Go all out with still-pink roast beef, fluffy Yorkshire puddings, roasted spuds and two veg. Lashing of gravy?
