Let’s be honest; a roast is never a bad idea. They’re just so filling and wholesome – and the perfect fare for these chilly winter months. But if you don’t feel like cooking the leg of lamb yourself, here are some of the best places to get a roast meal in Adelaide.
Press Food & Wine is two stories of upmarket culinary excellence, and it’s firmly established itself as one of Adelaide’s must-visit venues. If you’ve got a big group, you definitely need to try the roast suckling Berkshire pig sometime. It’s a big deal here, and with good reason. This pig is epic, and the very smell will have your mouth watering. You’ll need a minimum of ten guests, and you have to give them 24 hours’ notice – but trust us, this feast is completely worth it.
“First time here for a friends birthday and it was great. We were nicely seated in a booth upstairs overlooking the cool bar area. The food was great and the service and staff were so friendly. Definitely will come back to give it a try and also their desserts – was just too full that I couldn’t fit a soufflé in!” – xbabydollx
Britain has a long and delicious history of roast meals, and the British Hotel in North Adelaide is very proud to continue this fine tradition. In fact, it even adds to it! The Italian-style porchetta with crispy potatoes, apple & herb salad and red wine jus is simply gorgeous. If you’ve never had porchetta before, it’s a twist on the classic roast pork that seriously takes it to the next level – so head on down and give it a try.
“We go here for weekend lunch. I love the atmosphere, their pork belly is always great and my partner loves the ribs and salt and pepper squid. A great place to chill with friends in the outdoor area. Highly recommended.” – Sharon Tynan
Casual, relaxed and boasting a great menu, Gaslight Tavern is a true Brompton institution. It’s known as a great live gig joint as well as a more traditional pub, with a wide range of acts playing several days a well. And while you’re enjoying the music, why not order up their 10-hour-roasted Moroccan lamb shoulder with salad, lemon, mint yoghurt, and a choice of roast veggies or smashed chats? You won’t regret it.

The Seven Stars Hotel is a highly acclaimed restaurant on Angas Street, with a great atmosphere and friendly service. The food is top quality, and the oven-roasted South Australian pork belly is a proper local favourite. It comes complete with apple puree, and an heirloom tomato, fennel and a red onion salad topped with homemade dukkah. Beautiful.
