Sydney Pub Serves Entire Roast Dinner Inside A Giant Yorkshire Pudding

For all the Brits living in Australia, a roast dinner can go a long way in quelling those feelings of being homesick.

A Sunday roast is one hell of a tradition in the UK and there are plenty of Brits who keep that practice alive while they're living Down Under.

While each person will have their favourite spot that does a roast better than anyone else, there's a pub in Sydney that is eyeing them down for bragging rights.

The Forrester's in Surry Hills is set to open its doors this week after undergoing renovations during lockdown and they're bringing a big hitter in the menu to celebrate the momentous occasion.

For $29, the meal comes with all the trimmings, including a whole roast rump, honey-glazed carrots, peas, gravy and crispy potatoes.

Merivale executive chef Patrick Friesen came up with the epic concoction after a chat with a Scottish friend who recalled eating something similar back home.

"He told me about this whole plate of food served inside a Yorkshire pudding and covered in gravy, and to be honest I've been thinking about it ever since," he explained to Daily Mail Australia.

"I have always loved Yorkshire puddings as a rule but to me it always feels like there's never enough pudding to soak up the gravy.

"This was kind of the perfect solution to that."

He's sure it will be a rager with patrons when it lands on the menu next Monday (October 18).

Interestingly, there was a huge debate sparked three years ago on Yorkshire Pudding Day (yes, that's a thing) about what you're meant to eat with the delicious side.

Responding to a LADbible poll that asked if people agreed whether or not Yorkshire puddings should only be served with beef, one Twitter user commented: "Who is voting no? Sick people."

However, someone else argued: "Why pigeon hole them to just beef? They are awesome."

Another said diplomatically: "It is the 'tradition' but I would have them with every meal if I could."

Many restaurants will only serve Yorkshire puddings with the beef - often to the disappointment of the unknowing masses.
