You no longer need to spend hours in the kitchen to enjoy a traditional roast on Sundays.

The Crown Inn at Gayton, near King's Lynn, has launched a Sunday roast takeaway service just in time for the cold weather and nights drawing in.

Customers can choose from pork, beef, chicken or a combination of all three and can add roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, peas, carrots, broccoli, chipolatas, stuffing and Yorkshire pudding.

The takeaway also comes with a pot of gravy and sauces, and a vegetarian option is available.

Lisa Staples, who owns The Crown with her husband Neil, said: 'The idea came about when one of our Sunday bookings, a table of eight, came along as a table of seven because one of the group had to work.

'We jokingly said, why not take one home for the lady so it would be a nice treat when she got home. We realised that society has changed a lot and that people had to work on Sunday or didn't have time to make a full blown roast, so to be able to pick one up without all the fuss of making it yourself had to be a good idea.'

The roasts are available to order all week until 3pm on Sunday and can be collected from the pub any time on Sunday between 12pm and 10pm.
