· Ali Turner · Food and Drink

It's time to get your roast on!

Heaney & Mill Roast

Hands up if you’re bored of cooking now? Yep, everyone raised their hands, didn’t they?

When it comes to kitchen antics, there’s nothing more strenuous than a roast dinner, but it tastes so good that it’s hard to resist. Well, we have the answer – get a takeaway. That’s right, you can get this British favourite cooked to-go, so you can enjoy proper roasties and a fluffy Yorkshire pud without the effort. So what are you waiting for? Support your local independents and enjoy a right good feed.

Hungry Bear

After a short break, the Hungry Bear is back with its takeaway roast dinners. The menu is likely to change as they find their feet, but you can expect tasty morsels like their famous basil garlic pork porchetta and 12-hour braised brisket of beef. Veggie? You could be scoffing a chargrilled portobello, butternut squash and artichoke heart tart.

The trimmings come in the form of stuffing balls, Yorkshire puds and proper roasties, not to mention mixed greens, cauliflower cheese and a lashing of gravy. It’s £14.95 per person and they only do collection.

Roasts are available for collection at intervals every Sundays. They must be pre-ordered in advance. To order, call 0113 2740 241 or email hungrybearleeds@gmail.com.

Heaney & Mill

Now this is a roast! You have three options – Waterford Farm dry-aged roast beef rump cap, corn-fed chicken or leek and cheese wellington, all prepared by Masterchef Finalist Tom Reynolds. It’s delivered with all the trimmings.

We’re talking rosemary & Garlic roast potatoes, truffle mash, a traditional Yorkshire pudding and oodles of red wine gravy? Want veggies? Feast on buttered greens, carrot puree and cauliflower cheese gratin – get in! Their roasts are £15 each and come oven-ready to heat at home. Just heat up and job’s a good ‘un.

Roasts are available for delivery on Saturday from 9am-6pm or for collections on Sunday from 11am to 5pm. To order, email raze@heaneyandmill.com or call 0113 2781 640.

Man v Roast

The original takeaway roast, Man v Roast is still open and still delivering. Their epic roast dinners arrive piping hot and ready to eat, with a generous pot of gravy on the side so you can slather it on yourself.

Will it be pork loin or rotisserie chicken breast? Shoulder of lamb or gammon? Whatever you choose, it’ll come with carrots, peas, cauliflower cheese, stuffing and a Yorkshire pudding. Choose between proper roast potatoes and smooth-as-you-like mash. Their carvery boxes are £7 each, but you can upgrade to two meats for an extra 50p.

Roasts are available Sunday to Friday until they sell out. You can order online or give them a call on 0113 440 8970.

Feed

As you’d expect, Feed does its Sunday roast a little bit differently. For a start, they make subtle changes to the menu every week, so you can mix it up. But it’s more than that. They’ve taken a traditional roast dinner and put their own mark on it.

The meats are delicious, but they’re not your usual roast – salt beef, pulled pork and sriracha chicken have all made an appearance in the past. Veggies can look forward to a vegan spiced lentil loaf or a vegan nut roast. They all come with traditional sides, including roast potatoes, seasonal veggies, Yorkshire puds and a good old dousing of proper gravy. Their roasts are £10 for adults and £6 for kids.

Roasts are available every Sunday from their Leeds city centre and Pudsey restaurants. Collection slots every 10 minutes from 12pm. To order a collection from either branch, call 0113 3450 202. Deliveries are available through Uber Eats on the day.
