The time of the Sunday roast takeaway is now

A Peckham restaurant has announced it will deliver roast dinners to local households, in light of the government's advice that people shouldn't visit public spaces.

Coal Rooms, inside Peckham Rye station, is often praised for its excellent roasts (we've enjoyed a fantastic meal there too), and from this Sunday (22 March) it's offering a roast takeaway service to addresses within a three-mile radius of the restaurant.

The new delivery option offers 40 day aged belted Galloway rumps (£44), whole cotswold chicken for two (£35) and Welsh lamb saddle for two (£39). That's right, it's going to set you back slightly more than your average Maccie Ds.

All roasts are served with beef dripping, potatoes, carrots, January king cabbage, leeks and yorkshire pudding. The website is taking orders now.

We're intrigued to see if these hard times spark a new fad for takeaway Sunday dinners, or if the concept falls as flat as an undercooked yorkshire pud.
