    Steak nice though obscenely expensive (£39), chips very nice, accompanying vegetables over-cooked.

    This was my first visit to Roast after many recommendations. The reality was I left feeling a bit underwhelmed. The food was outstanding and the fact that there’s was a lack of ambience couldn’t be helped given it was a mid-August Monday night. However, the service was just not on point and the attention to detail by the staff was poor - less than I’d expect for a restaurant of this quality (and my expectation).

    The level of service was not what you’d come to expect at Roast. The market menu was not offered and had to be requested. Side dish did not arrive. However the food is always excellent.

    Last seating on a Sunday evening at 630pm, so I am not surprised they were out of beef Wellington. Ordered the roast beef, cooked rare, instead. It was served medium. I cut the edges off and ate the pinkest parts of the meat. The gravy was delicious and the flavour of the beef was good. The potatoes were stale, but made crispy to try to hide the fact they were stale, old potatoes. The bread pudding was good. The carrots were cooked medium, so retained some firmness. The cabbage was soft. Both veggies were sitting in the gravy, so tasted good enough. Horseradish sauce to dip beef in was good. Portion was large, and plated in an appetizing manner. Scotch egg appetizer was delicious. Overall, not worth it for average/ below average roast beef. For a restaurant called ROAST I expected above average, properly prepared beef.

    Food wasn’t worth the price at all. Roast potatoes taste like they’d been sat there for a week. The beef on the roast was lovely wellington was interesting lovely meat awful taste to the mushroom that surrounds it. We just ordered some bread to the table and they put it down no smile no nothing didn’t even look at us. Quite rude if I’m honest. Noise was awful as there was a table next to us with 3 bratty children im aware it wasn’t the restaurants fault but still doesn’t help when you’re out for a 'nice' meal. Didn’t feel like it was worth the 12.5% tip which was £33 so we took £10 off it and the waitress had the cheek to come over and say we were £10 down 🤣 after paying almost £300 for a meal that wasn’t worth it getting £20 for one course was good enough. I was mortified that she came and asked it made me want to ask for the rest of it back! TIPS ARE NOT COMPULSORY! It’s supposed to be a way of letting someone know you enjoyed a meal. You want more money then put your prices up then people can decide whether they want to pay it or not. They shouldn’t feel obliged to tip especially not that amount. I work in a tipping job myself so I fully understand it’s worth. Cocktail and the wine were lovely as was the fillet steak.. but not enough for me to recommend to anyone or give positive feedback.

    Really disappointed with our visit to Roast. Service was really slow and we got our drinks after our main arrived. No one really checked to see how things were and the fastest thing that arrived was the bill. Obviously this isn’t the staff’s fault - I wonder if perhaps they were understaffed and it was a really hot day, but do expect a bit more in a place like this. The meat was absolutely amazing, really good - but everything else on the plate (potato’s, veg) was markedly average for a £39 roast. I wouldn’t have minded so much for a standard high street chain, but for somewhere that markets itself as a higher end option (and we had gone as a treat for a special occasion) was quite disappointing and I wouldn’t recommend.

    All 4 diners disappointed with their meals. Roast potatoes looked good but where hard in the centre, cabbage and Kale tasteless and hard. Below average Sunday roast. Waitress explained Sunday was a very busy day and the chefs don’t have time to check quality of food going out, she said experience would be better mid week. Needless to say we won’t be going back!

    We had visited 3 years ago and gave an amazing meal, so were excited to come back. It has changed, no jugs of water on the tables, even though it was 36 degrees outside - had to wait for waiter to fill our glass each time. No fresh warm bread offered, no you pay for that now. And the air conditioning was non existent until everyone was nearly passing out from the heat and then I could feel it had been turned in (but only on low). My husband had the lamb and encountered a large ribbon of plastic on his plate situated under the lamb. The staff apologised and didn’t charge for the meal, but we had been thoroughly put off by then. The atmosphere is dead too. We left after only one course and went outside to buy ice cream to compensate for a poor evening. Such a shame

    The wine serving for a glass was so small. The lemon slice dessert was inedible. So cold so dry and tasted awful. Service got worse as it got busier and I was charged for dessert I sent back so had to have it removed. Disappointing

    Service was welcoming on entry and overall satisfactory or good and the venue once inside is quite spectacular with the glazed historic roof and views into the market areas. The food however was fair. Not great, not bad, just very average. Considering the price, it was disappointing. My omelette was too wet inside and the ham looked like processed chopped overly salty ham, and the full breakfast was, according to a client “disappointing; sausages tough and black pudding not very good”. No one asked about allergies and my omelette had lots of chives in which wasn’t great. Not sure if the place has gone off the boil so to speak or just lazy.

    Came for a birthday meal, lovely service, absolutely faultless, even had a cloakroom for my bag. High quality drinks, food was good although potatoes were a little too hard on the outside, however, fluffy on the inside. Beef cooked nicely and carrots soft. Gravy was underwhelming however the Yorkshire puddings were amazing. Dessert was very nice, and would highly recommend the knickerbocker (chocolate). All in all a good meal with great service.

    Lovely place, that had a good atmosphere. Our server was lovely and made the experience better. The roast beef and beef wellington were outstanding. The only thing that let it done was the fact that our drinks came after our food 15 minutes after we put the order through

    I have heard a lot about this place on social media for Sunday roast it took them 15 minutes to bring the menu over to the table , yes the food was tasty and well presented but the vegetables and potatoes need to be cooked bit more the potatoes very hard to cut through and vegetables needed more time, restaurant was under-staffed the lady take my order need couple of time for me to repeat what I said. Last but not least is I have order a cocktail and few drinks which should of arrived before my meal the 2 drink for my husband and my mum has arrived just after the food which is still acceptable my drink arrived after my meal finished also I had to request few time when the table next to us arrived later and they to their drinks first. I really do not consider going back

    Location, location, location! Great spot to get away from a heaving Borough Market and sit down for a wonderful lunch. Moderate service at best (left a good while before drinks, missed drinks orders, wrong bill etc.) but very pleasant staff. Menu limited for vegetarians, and although obviously famous for "Roasts" (!), menu could perhaps have been more seasonal or at least outline provenance more clearly. Paying for the location in terms of value.

    First time at Roast, it came highly recommended and didn't disappoint. Lucky enough to get a window table overlooking the vibrant and busy Borough Market. The whole experience was brilliant and we can't wait to come back again! Service was truly outstanding while at the same time providing a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

    The food was very good, in particular the Beef Wellington was probably the best I've ever had. Ambience was good, its a lovely light, airy restaurant. Service was a bit haphazard. Junior waiting staff were willing but a little slow/inexperienced, not helped by the head waiter who seemed put out by me asking him for things. Unfortunately that seems to be the trend in London these days with a lot of experienced staff having left the country/industry post covid. Oh and though we'd told the restaurant it was my wife's birthday they made no reference to that at all

    Went to Roast for dinner with a friend, we had seen the market rate menu but weren't offered it when we sat down. When we asked however it was supplied immediately and with bottomless prosecco was perfect for our night. Service was superb and friendly with the staff even stopping just for a chat. The food is outstanding and the people around us were friendly and created a great atmosphere.
