Share in the home-style joys of a Sunday roast at Balmain's beloved bar this winter
Whether you're kicking off your evening with a barrel-aged Negroni or ending it on a nutty sherry, there's never a bad time to be kicking back in Wilhelmina's, the neighbourhood bar and restaurant split over two sides of the old Working Men's Institute on Darling Street.
But come Sunday it's worth rugging up and hitting this boss Balmain bar a little earlier to get your hands on their weekly roast. There's no day of rest for the team here who portion up a whole beast each week. Sometimes it's pork, lamb, duck or chicken – they'll give you a heads-up on what to expect on their Facebook page.
The top-to-tail roast features a cut of beautiful, golden brown meat and comes with all the trimmings, including Yorkshire puddings. It requires none of the effort of slow-cooking your own lunch. You just have to show up with your group (most cuts are suited to three to four people), sit down and tuck in to a Sunday session that won't leave you with a sore head on Monday morning.

I love the selection and the fact that I can pick which cut of meat I have! Had the 4 bone rack of Lamb this week pwith my girlfriend and we were both blown away. The staff were great and suggested a perfect wine to go with the meal. Definitely coming back for the Pork shoulder with a few extra mates!
I just moved to Balmain and this place is already my favourite local. My girlfriend and I went the other week and had the whole roast duck. Gave it a great shot but couldn't finish it all. Next time will take the whole family.
Perfect neighbourhood restaurant. Love those guys, service is super friendly, buzzing atmosphere and food is incredible.
Best place to chill out with friends, watch the world go by, drink some wine and get stuck into their full Sunday spread, especially the deep fried brussel sprouts that come with the rack of lamb.
Amazing, we had the Shoulder of Pork last week and it was epic. And the Yorkshire Puddings made me feel right at home.
