Lunch from meat merchants The Ginger Pig is appropriately protein rich, with a cracking deal for £6.50. Thanks to these guys, you could enjoy a Sunday roast every day of the week, with none of the effort, or washing up.
Be aware: the box looks deceptively small, but packs in a lot of food. There's the option of picking your own selection, and paying according to weight. But as any self-respecting meat lover probably should, I went for 'the full works' for £6.50, and could later be found napping in Paddington Street Gardens.
OK not quite, but you get the idea - I was pretty stuffed. The feast includes a trio of meats: sweet and sticky BBQ pork, roast chicken, and slow roast beef. If something runs out don't fret; it's a butchers after all, so there is plenty of lamb shoulder in the wings. Great justice is also done to the sides, a cherished part of any solid roast. Baby potatoes, thick carrots, and various sauces are all available with salad. Needless to say my takeaway box was piled high with all kinds of gravy-glazed goodness.
Note: the lunch deal is available from the below locations, every day of the week, from 12pm until they run out. Each site has a slightly different menu on each day, and they publish them on their Twitter account each morning.
