Fantastic as always. The pork belly was wonderful, my colleagues enjoyed their sirloin and rib eye steaks. Lovely light atmosphere, in an otherwise busy market.

Great staff , food was really good but really pricey , great ambience - I paid a service charge on the bill which was optional on the receipt as I found out later on after the meal but was not advised of this when given the card machine - I gave the waiter £20 tip in cash thinking there was not a service charge so I forked out £50 in tips , but all in all it was a great meal

Great location and great food.

Waiter was at times too efficient / felt a bit rushed.

Wine list too long - probably more for the conneseur rather than the ‘sociable drinker’ with prices reflecting that.

Food and location was lovely. Only a couple of issues, when the plates were cleared they also cleared an unfinished gin and tonic.
The other issue was an additional sorbet was bought to the table to try - this was requested for but was added onto the final bill.
We had to mention both issues to the manager

As always a fantastic evening at Roast. Atmosphere welcoming & lively. Food excellent, although one steak was underdone for our liking but that was dealt with quickly by the manager.
Not rushed at all. Would definitely recommend for any occasion.

Roast is a great restaurant for quality food, service, atmosphere and the hearty Borough Market location adds character. From arriving to leaving the customer care is on the button, the food options are varied and any questions answered. I've been before and will go again!

What a treat. Great choice of food. I opted for the vegan nut roast which was so yummy. My son had a kids version of sausages and mash. He reckons it was the best he had ever had. He also enjoyed the activity sheet he was presented with!! Dessert was amazing. English classic banana split. The crispy caramel banana was devine. Will definately return with my husband next time as he will live this place.

Outstanding. The service this time was second to none with our waiter allowing my American guest to try a Yorkshire pudding and also a wine recommendation to try something new. Great menu choice that aligns with the “roast” theme. Somewhat expensive overall but great nonetheless.

Roast struck me as a restaurant where processes supersede guests' needs. We had at least 5 different people serving us food and drinks, it was obvious that at Roast the most important thing is to sell each table as many times a night as possible. We felt rushed and pushed by the many times waiters came to our table to check if they could speed up things. We had three courses. Average time between courses not exceeding 5 minutes. The starter (ox tail filled canneloni in a broth) was bland to say it nicely. Main course consisted of a tasty and well prepared but mammoth sized slab of crunchy pork belly that would have easily served 2. The wine list was enormous but ridiculously priced. We were offered to not pay the 12,5 mandatory service fee but declined since we wanted to get out of there asap. All in all a night not to remember.

The atmosphere here is great - so light and fresh. I had asked for a table by the window and sure enough we had a great spot on the upper section. To overlook the Dickensian charm of Borough Market while you eat is a joy in itself, but the food didn't disappoint either. The 4 of us had different things and all were great (wine a bit on the pricy side though but hey - don't want riff-raff in do we :-) ). The birthday ice-cream and candle for my wife was a nice touch to finish off a memorable lunch. We'll be back.

Thanks

Very welcoming and knowledgable staff. Excellent signature dish of Beef Wellington, starter of scallops was delicious but chorizo scotch egg disappointed as there was hardly any taste of the chorizo. (Apparently by design according to the maître d’).

Our table was booked for 6pm when restaurant had just opened. It was quiet however, seemed to very quickly fill Into a lively atmosphere that created a buzz and happy ambience in the room. Had a window seat with great view, service was excellent , sommeliers very knowledgable and unobtrusive and food was excellent. Celebration meal that will be remembered for all the right reasons. Within our party of four we would all recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

We went early (18.15) so three of us had the early bird menu which was very good value. All of the food was delicious and the service was very very good. Even though we arrived early we didn’t leave until 9.30pm but at no point was there any sense that they were trying to get rid of us or force us to order more. It was just attentive enough without being too much. We loved the open and airy feeling that the high ceilings and large windows offer and the location was perfect for our party. Great evening all round. Thank you.

The venue is pleasant and interesting but the set-up is so obviously there to rip you off it’s just off putting. One veg with ever main so you add sides and the average bottle of wine must be £80+. The food was ok and of decent quality but for the cost i’d like more creativity and wow.

My first time at Roast and I was not disappointed. We booked a table for dinner for our wedding anniversary on Easter Monday and it was relatively quiet. The service was first rate; friendly without being unprofessional. The food was exquisite. Best burrata I have had and the honey-glazed duck breast cooked pink (as requested) was perfect. Great wine list too, for all tastes. Their market menu (3 courses for £30.00) is good value. We will definitely go back.

Lunched with friends. Excellent vegetarian menu when so often this can be limited when friends are mix of meat eaters/vegetarians. Good food, good service. Picallili was an instant taste memory from childhood for me. The 3 meat eaters had lamb, hake & beef (all we’re happy) & shared a New Zealand Pinot noir - we had so often relied on a French Malbec, this was a timely reminder that other wines are just as good. The vegetarian had a wonderful gin toddy which lasted her entire lunch!
Day or so later just me went for breakfast - equally good food/good service: loved the rhubarb jam which called back the egg custard & rhubarb dessert 3 of us chose when we lunched. Views through the large light sharing windows are great, including St Paul’s!

Excellent Roast Beef! We went to Roast for Easter Lunch and we were not disappointed! Fresh ingredients and amazing wine list. My Roast beef and Yorkshire Pudding were amazing brought me back to my childhood Sunday dinners at grandma's. Thank you to the Chefs and Staff of Roast for a very special day! We will definitely come back when we visit London again!

The Sunday roast beef was a bit of a letdown. The location is fabulous and modern on top of the Borrough market. The cut of beef was small, dry and bland..the Yorkshire pudding was just OK. The roasted chicken and lamb on the other hand was very flavorful. The chorizo scotch egg had a thin layer of meat, you could get a better one in the market below. The razor clam/squid was succulent. It was a good experience but would not go back.

My wife had visited once before so we had an idea we were in for a great meal. We were not disappointed.
We all chose the ox cheek as it is relatively unusual and my wife had had it before. The meat was cooked perfectly and fell apart as you dug your fork into it. We chose roasties, broccoli and courgettes as accompaniments and they were all nicely done.
The wine list is extensive but also very expensive so we opted for a carafe of merlot which was devine. It is a great shame that there are not more wines available at a more modest price. I am sure that what they have is of the highest quality but we are not all investment bankers.
Desert was excellent. I chose the sticky date pudding whilst our son-in-law chose the crumble. My wife, quite full from the main course opted for a spoon.
As it was evening, the market was deserted and it would be interesting to know how the ambience changes at lunch time when the market would be in full swing.
For us, it was a special occasion but I would be very keen to explore the menu further.

All in all a delightful meal. However I was angered somewhat at the (12.5%) opt service charge already added to the bill and the cost of 2 glasses of wine. Food excellent but wine by the glass an absolute rip off.

I took business colleagues for dinner and after our meal we reflected on what we’d eaten. Starters were good but the steak was disappointing for the price. One of my guests commented that Miller and Carter is about half the price and far better value. Clearly the location is good and my view was St Paul’s Cathedral. Given the price we had high hopes but left a little disappointed.
