A scrumptious roast dinner that’s almost as good as mum’s
I love a good roast dinner with all the trimmings, but my Yorkshire puddings always seem to turn out, well, naff. This is despite the fact that I hail from Yorkshire. The shame.

So, in search of a great Yorkshire pudding, I headed out to Jack Caddy's at the Market City Tavern in Canning Vale to try their Sunday roast carvery.

The Sunday carvery.


It's clear the carvery is a popular choice, with a steady stream of people grabbing a plate and heading up to the counter to fill it up. You can also choose the a la carte menu, which several of my companions did, ordering the chicken parmigiana, sizzling seafood, Guiness pot pie, scotch fillet and the Lynford spring lamb, while everyone else went for the roast.

Casual dining in Canning Vale.


For just under $20, you can choose from two different roast meats, delicious, juicy yet crispy pork crackle, a range of roast veggies, cauliflower cheese, gravy, and of course, the Yorkshire puddings.

The salad bar is included with meals.


I loaded up my plate and returned to the table. I tried to share my vegetables and roast potatoes with my toddler, but she was having none of it, not when there are chips available. Oh well, more for me.

I had a bit of roast lamb and a bit of the pork, both of which were beautifully cooked – juicy and tender and not at all tough, like some roasts tend to be. I loved the cauliflower cheese while the vegetables weren't soggy or undercooked. Perfect. The gravy was super tasty and needless to say I cleared my plate.

My roast dinner.


That is, except for the Yorkshire pudding – I always leave the best until last. It was cooked perfectly – crispy on the outside and lovely and soft in the inside. Delicious.

The Guinness pot pie.


I had a taste of the Guinness pot pie, because it looked too delicious not to. The entire bowl is covered in flaky puff pastry, and underneath is a tasty combination of beef, onions, mushrooms, creamy mash potato and gravy, all with a hint of Guinness flavour. It also came with a side of seasonal vegetables.

The chicken parmigiana.


There was no complaints about the meals – the scotch fillet was cooked rare, just how my husband likes it (shudder) and it didn't last long on the plate. The spring lamb was tender and juicy and the parmigiana was nice and crispy, with a lovely Napoli sauce and topped with ham. Yum.

Sizzling Seafood.


Jack Caddy's is also family friendly, with kids eat free deals from Monday to Thursday and a kids menu that includes a drink and activity pack with each meal. There's also a soft-serve ice cream machine. Enough said about that, really.

Lynford spring lamb.


The menu has a lot of variety and features a mix of starters, salads, steaks and Aussie pub grub favourites. The wait staff are friendly and attentive and you can purchase a range of beers, wines or spirits to accompany your meal. Most meals also include the salad bar, while there are dinner specials available every night of the week.

Your Comment
Thanks for the post. I too come from Yorkshire and live a Yorkshire pudding. There's not many places here in Perth that do them. I need to point outinetbing though, you're supposed to eat the Yorkshire pudding first. They should be served separately and eaten before the meal. The idea is that it's a cheap way to fill you up as people were poor and couldn't afford a lot of meat. That's how they came to be.

Cheers,
Stuart
