I booked Roast for Fathers Day, there were just three adults. It was really busy in the restaurant but the staff were still still very attentive.
The food was excellent and value for money, the only reason for the slightly lower score is that the wine is pricey.
The food was delicious. Not just the quality of the meat and produce but the preparation was perfect. Service was excellent. We couldn't fault our experience.
Fabulous! I have been to Roast, a number of times, this time was better than ever.
Very good. Not cheap but quality food in nice surroundings.
Not too busy and nice and relaxed.
Very good meal and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Great service and an unhurried relaxed ambience.
Food was excellent, although it was a shame we were not asked about hoThere is an error on the Open Table entry for Roast as the market menu isn’t available on Saturdays. But we showed the entry and they allowed us to have the weekday offer.
I used to love going to Roast. But it’s changed.....the food is now only average. It’s a shame that another great venue has to change.
This is one of the best places to have breakfast in london. Not the cheapest but worth the treat and will royally set you up for the day.
Food and service was excellent. Pleased we went early before it became busy.
I’ve been here a few times for a two-person business dinner and it’s reliably first-class. The food is classy without trying to be clever, the service is warm and genuine, and I find the atmosphere ideal for a relaxed business conversation. If I had to find fault, I might say the wines are a bit pricier than elsewhere, but overall, the bill is generally decent value for money.
We had lunch at Roast last year. We are from overseas and visit London almost yearly. Last Monday, upon our return to London, we again booked in Roast. Food and service are always excellent. We keep coming back as well for their Sticky Date Pudding...
I’ve written a full review on trip advisor. Service was appalling and despite the restaurant being two thirds empty they were unable to get our third course out to use within 90 minutes despite our pleading for it twenty minutes before we had to leave for the Royal Festival Hall. Never going back.
Roast is normally excellent. I booked at 5pm Sunday huge mistake, I received a plate of fatty beef, dry potatoes, watery gravy. The place is excellent if you book early, don’t book late the food tastes like it been there all day.
Great food and drinks. Good wine selection. Perfect roast for a Sunday afternoon
We love this restaurant it never disappoints, on food, service and ambience. However, on our last visit we were saddened to learn that their drinks menu no longer offered an earl grey martini. The bar staff were very accommodating and offered a close alternative with the hope that the earl grey will return to the menu soon.
Starters and Puddings were good. The main was ok, the meat and Yorkshire pudding were good but the potatoes were dry and hard. I think no veg with a roast dinner is disappointing and so when you then charge £4.50 for some broccoli it means it is not good value.
Outstanding food and excellent service.
Good service, prices are a little high especially the wine. Food was good but didn’t quite live up to the prices. I would like to go back to try some of the other dishes on offer as our choices may not have been ideal.
With so many options in the area I might try something else before coming back. The waiter staff was confusing as we had 3 different people helping us and they did not seem to be communicating with each other. The food was good, but again, with so much competition in the area, not something that stood out to me above other places I have been.
We love this restaurant, but for some season our order took an inordinate amount of time. Perhaps our fault - but any time a table is waiting for the "cod" for over 30 minutes seems a stretch. We will be back though.
Fantastic breakfast choice and produce. Delicious! Great for business breakfasts.
Would have preferred wine to be left on table to serve ourselves
would recommend it
Unfortunately I don't think I would recommend Roast to a friend. We were a party of 10 people meeting up for the first time, for some of them, in 20 years. Our table was placed by the stairs to the upper level so it wasn't so easy to get out when needed; we had to serve our own wine as we gave up waiting to be served - that's not a problem if the ice bucket didn't involve getting up to get the wine as it wasn't near our table and we found the set menu inflexible. 2 of the guests never eat dessert but didn't want al la carte as the portions are generally larger so they paid for 3 courses on the set menu but only ate 2. A lot of other restaurants of a similar calibre offer 2 or 3 courses with a price adjustment accordingly. We also had to order our dessert with the other courses which is always tricky not knowing what you may want later.
A lovely venue with great reputation. Was a little disappointed as there were errors in service with one meal missing which then had to be reordered. By the time it arrived other diners had finished.
Quality was good but not outstanding.
Costs were very high and didn’t feel of value.
A real shame as we expected more.
Lovely food, very fast service for order and serve, helpful staff. The only upsets were that the water wasn't refilled on the table, and I asked for my meat not pink (but it was served pink). I was however asked if I wanted it changed. Delicious food though and would definitely come again.
The food was lovely and the setting is beautiful. The service was very rude which is why I am rating it lower than I would.
I’ve always loved visits to roast, it is very friendly and the food and service is excellent, and it is very beautiful.
The food is great but extremely over priced, especially when you take into account the overall experience. The service is just terrible. Clueless, indifferent staff wander round not clearing tables and not understanding the expensive and limited wine list.
Good food and service. Had the roast beef which was nicely cooked. Lovely gravy and more was offered without being requested.
Welcoming with a calm and relaxed ambience. Service was great we were made to feel special. Food was absolutely delicious would highly recommend
Great food for a team lunch. Good vegetarian choice, beautifully cooked and presented. Only minor point was that it’s quite warm if the weather’s nice outside being a largely glass room.
Roast is always good. I mainly do breakfasts there with a good selection of traditional foods. It is civilised and calm - a great place to enjoy the experience and to talk business in a relaxed atmosphere.
Overall dinner was lovely. My only criticism would be that the food arrived very quickly and there wasn’t any break between starter and main which made it feel slightly rushed.
The food was exquisite and the Service excellent! The group enjoyed both their lunch and the athomsphere.
A good quality restaurant with a good choice of dishes and a nice ambience in a location above Borough market. Quality of the service was appropriate and we were not rushed through the meal which was very tasty.
Delicious food, as ever in a wonderful, evocative setting. An oasis of calm for a business breakfast in a bustling Borough environment.
Enjoyed a lovely Bank Holiday all day brunch. Food was excellent
Lovely brunch catering for a variety of tastes - essential with our family.
Hi,what a fantastic surprise on our first visit to this fine restaurant.i had the shoulder of lamb,Wow never had better in my life.i would recommend to anyone # Just Brilliant
Sunday lunch set menu sadly lacking essentials like veg & roast potatoes, which are charged as side dishes. Rib eye, over cooked. For the food served to us it was overpriced. Service poor, thank goodness we were by our wine bucket to serve our own wine. Prefer Hawksmoor or Chez Bruce. Now off our list... we did actually make staff aware and no response was forthcoming.
