For a long, lazy lunch that’s going to fill you up, we’ve got four roast dinners that will hit the spot.
Typically known for fish and chips or bangers and mash, British fare is often regarded as a bit of an underdog in the world of international cuisine. But even the biggest food connoisseur would struggle to turn down a proper roast dinner.
Here are four of our favourite roast dinners in Dubai, complete with all the trimmings.
1. Dhow & Anchor
Not just for the weekends, the Chef’s Roast of the Day is served daily with a different meat each day. All roasts are served with roasted root vegetables, Maris Piper potatoes and gravy, for a truly traditional British roast.
Jumeirah Beach Hotel, daily 12pm-11:30pm, from Dhs120. Tel: (04) 406 8720. More info on website.
2. Lock, Stock & Barrel
For a real home away from home feeling, perennial Dubai favourite Lock, Stock & Barrel serves up its all-day roast every Saturday and Sunday alongside all the sporting action on the big screens. Enjoy two meats from a selection of Beef, Chicken or Lamb, plus happy hour runs from 4pm-8pm with buy one get one free on selected drinks.

3. Reform Social & Grill
This family-friendly spot in the leafy lakes serves up a roast dinner every Saturday and Sunday. There’s a variety of meats on the menu and it’s served up with all the classic English trimmings and lashings of gravy. With views of the lake and a proper pub garden to be enjoyed in the cooler months, you could easily be mistaken for thinking you were in the UK.

There’s an upscale Argentinian twist on the weekend roast at Gaucho Dubai. The vegetables might be typically traditional, but the cuts of meat on offer include sirloin, ribeye or whole spatchcock chicken. For a more upscale affair, choose the Gaucho Asado (Dhs350). Perfect for sharing, it’s served with truffle scented chips, humita salteña, grilled tomatoes, portobello mushrooms, fried eggs and chimichurri.
