There is something so universally comforting about a roast meal in winter. Luckily, we have stumbled upon the best in Auckland at Grangers, where they are putting on a roast dinner from 5pm every Sunday throughout the cold season — and it’s only $22 per person.
Located on The Promenade in Half Moon Bay, Grangers is conveniently even less than a hop, skip and jump from where the car ferry docks from Waiheke Island. What could be better, when you’ve spent a weekend on the Island, than coming straight off the ferry and having Grangers take care of dinner when you return to the mainland on Sunday evening?
While the exact components of the roast will change week-to-week, expect a delicious selection of tender, beautifully seasoned meat, satiating potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and perfectly cooked veggies drenched in tasty gravy. We’ll be pairing ours with a beverage from Grangers’ substantial drinks list — comprising a selection of mostly New Zealand wines (with a few from France and Australia dotted throughout), or if beer is more your style choose from a hefty number of tap and bottled beers. House cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages round out the spread.
With tall, stool-lined tables indoors and an outlook that faces straight onto the marina, Grangers is the ideal place to take in the sunset while digging into a piping hot roast dinner. This promotion is on now, right through to October, and sounds like just the situation we’ll be seeking out to get through the winter.
