Roast Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I have been coming to this restaurant for many years now and the standard of service and food is the best.
After buying food for our New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day dinner in borough market. We either have breakfast at Roast or the set lunch menu which is excellent value for money.
Top restaurant highly recommended when in Borough market.
Our first ever visit to 'Roast' did not disappoint. Its location, within and overlooking Borough Market gives it a special and unique feel, with the views over the bustling market place providing a different perspective compared to other restaurants. This also contributed to the ambience, which is airy and spacious particularly if, as ours was, your table is in the raised area of the restaurant.
The menu choices, being decidedly British, provide enough variety without being too many and onerous, thus making selections easier as a result. 2 of our party of 3 had the set market menu, whereas I went for a-la-carte selections, since this included items I wanted to try that were not included in the set menu. Our first courses chosen were pear with blue cheese, salt beef fritters and seared scallops with smoked pork belly & raisins, all of which were delicious and a great starting point to our dining experience. This was accompanied by a refreshing glass of prosecco. Our main courses were pork belly, lamb rump and braised ox cheek, all of which we determined were superb. Our main courses were accompanied by satisfying honey roasted buttered carrots & parsnips and rosemary roasties. One of our party chose an Italian red wine, which complimented our meal perfectly. Our dessert choices were a) Warm chocolate pudding with salted peanut mousse and vanilla ice cream, b) Bramley apple, quince and sultana crumble with almonds, oats and English vanilla custard, and c) homemade ice cream. All of these were enjoyed although one criticism was that the homemade ice cream only consisted of 1 scoop.
The staff were attentive without being overbearing and provided the service we required.
Overall I can report that our dining experience was most enjoyable and that I would thoroughly recommend 'Roast' to anyone considering frequenting this establishment in future.
Tasting menu with wines for five of us. Late lunch celebration. Generous portions of wine. Sensible portions for the meal. Variety of fish to meats. Excellent. Lots of uk produce including wines. Great session lasting several hours.
We’ve developed a tradition over the last 5 years of travelling from Wiltshire for breakfast at Roast just before Christmas. We love it. The food is always delicious, of the highest quality, fresh and hot.
This year I opted for soft boiled duck eggs and marmite soldiers; the simplest of food which tasted simply sublime! The yolks were orange and perfect for dipping the soft buttery soldiers in.
My partner always has the Scottish breakfast with a side order of bubble and squeak partnered with a spicy Bloody Mary. He has never been disappointed
Our waitress this year was Ana who must get a mention for her award winning smile and perfect service. Will the tradition continue? Absolutely!!
Roast delivered traditional English food, with a twist, in a warm and very friendly atmosphere. In addition, out casual mention of it being a birthday meal for our son was picked up by the staff who ensured that his dessert was served with the birthday candle already lit.
We have had dinner here previously so we tried brunch, it was great, lots of choices on the menu and not all meaty . Service was good ,but waited a while for a second coffee. View from are table by the window was great for watching over the fabulous market. Great atmosphere , would definitely recommend and return 👍
We've dined at Roast many times and it is always excellent the service, food, bar and ambience are always first class.
If you are celebrating a special occasion then i would certainly put this at the top of the list.
The only downside are the prices with mains running into the £30 bracket an average 3 course dinner for 2 with wine and cocktails and service can easily be £150-£250.
Expensive but well worth a visit .
