Went for brunch (advertised online) but they didn't seem to have the brunch menu available and they don't have anything to make hot drinks. Had a chicken burger instead, and it was the tiniest burger I've ever seen. Definitely not good value or quality. This...More

Hi Cherie, Sorry were not able to get a roast. We took over Resident about 12 weeks ago and we are currently working on the menu, adding new items every week. I'm pretty confident we will have the roast back on soon.
