To wonder why anyone would get a takeaway roast?

I get supporting local pubs, but I just don't understand why anyone would get a takeaway roast?
Pubs are charging £15 for a one course Sunday roast (every week, not just Easter). Which isn't exactly cheap. I would have thought this would be pretty grim once you get it home, and a home cooked roast is far superior.

There is a local pub round here that does this. It's amazing, we've had it a couple of times. It's £9.99, I wouldn't pay £15. It's lovely, there's plenty of it and it's very nice. They have become popular, not just Sunday roast but doing various theme nights etc. They even doing delivery some nights.

I've never had one either but it doesn't need much brain to comprehend that people like different things.

A place in our town dies drench style rotisserie Chicken. They’ll deliver a roast with all accompaniments and real gravy, for four, for £18. My husband and son don’t like roast, chicken skin or anything fatty(🤯).
My daughter and I love it. We’re considering ordering one for the two of us

(1) to support the pub
(2) to cut down on dishes
(3) to treat themselves
(4) because they are not confident cooking a roast
(5) because their kitchen or oven is inadequate / being refurbished
(6) because they like different meats from each other
Can think of lots of reasons.
