Winter is definitely on its way, which means it is the perfect time to enjoy a warm, Sunday roast. Crispy potatoes, creamy gravy, chicken so tender it is practically falling apart...are you salivating? Here are Sydney's best go-to spots for a hearty meal with all the trimmings. 

1. Four In Hand, Paddington

Their Sunday $24 all-day roasts created by head chef Guillaume Brahimi are simply divine. Their roasts rotate between lamb, chicken and even pork belly, with seasonal sides such as potatoes, carrots and pumpkin, always served in generous portions. Visit their website.

2. Hotel Centennial, Woollahra

It's a tad exxy at $35 per plate, but this is one gourmet meat-of-the-day roast, available for lunch and dinner on Sundays. In fact, the entire menu is gourmet and incredible- slow cooked lamb shoulder and fish drizzled in burnt butter make for the perfect accompaniments to your next child-free date night.
