You just can’t go wrong with Pedro’s. Succulent lamb falling off the bone and creamy scalloped potatoes. What’s not to love? Cook up some green beans or steamed carrots yourself to accompany and you have a perfect meal.

A tender whole lamb shoulder cooked slowly over 4-5 hours, with garlic and rosemary to bring out the delicious flavour. Served with scalloped potatoes. TAKEAWAY
