Average at best. Overpriced wine list. Food was ok. Service needs to understand that when a customer complains that something is over cooked it shouldn’t try to pretend it isn’t!

A great place to eat & drink with friendly and attentive staff both in the bar and the restaurant. The food was awesome! We had a couple of English classics... roast beef and liver & bacon. Both were very very good. Highly recommended and we will definitely visit again...

The food is massively overpriced but it was a special occasion. The pasta was incredibly salty and really not worth the hefty price tag. £12 for a glass of Chardonnay! Hmm. Waiting staff were lovely though.

Hmmm- honestly I didn’t think Roast was good value for money . I can cook better roast potatoes myself so one is going to feel let down. And a waiter rolling his eyes when he poured a drink into a glass with ice in when my friend didn’t want ice, isn’t quite the reaction I expected from a classy restaurant. Location great & we were out to have a good time, which we did so thanks for that.

The food is excellent but not value for money as at least one side should be included. The wine prices are ridiculous and more selection in the lower prices should be included.

How to ruin a Sunday lunch . Seat us on our own. Ignore us until we shout . Serve pre lunch drinks with the wine and then let us wait for a very average meal but very expensive experience.

When we complain to the manager he tells us that his kitchen and front of house need done training ...and to cap it all the reception staff had their coats on as we were leaving .

As I said how to ruin a Sunday lunch

I love this restaurant and have eaten there countless times over the years. However, it’s beginning to look quite tired. On Saturdays they no longer serve breakfast with table cloths - revealing that each and everyone of their tables is chipped, damaged, and in need of replacement.

Visited for breakfast. My fellow diner chose lobster benedict. £21 for the large. Less than impressed with the miniscule amount of lobster that would barely fill a tablespoon. I chose avocado, orange and tomato. Disproportionately large amount of avo - 1.5 - to other ingredients. Bread basket a failure with slices of white bread. There’s a bulging market literally downstairs packed with artisan bakers. Two juices and two teas and we saw no change from £60+ Also found front of house and service a little surly. To finish on a positive, decor is fabulous and views are glorious.

I have submitted many reviews for Roast and am pleased to say that the food remains amazing!
Sadly the floor service let the restaurant down.
There seemed to been half the number of waiters as usual - and this showed in their less attentive, rushed and almost slightly unfriendly attitudes.
Sorry Roast.

Attended for a special occasion and the restaurant kindly accommodated our request for a table with a view and for a special dessert. Most of our party had the special (beef wellington) which was a fantastic portion, cooked to perfection. Starters (Scotch egg, tortellini) were delicious. A perfect treat.

Although we were aware of the prices when booking, we expected the food to be of the highest quality. Unfortunately, this proved not to be the case. All four in our party found the food to be bland, particularly the main course of roast beef and the signature beef wellington, and lacking flavour. We didn't expect to have to pay extra for vegetables with our main.

The restaurant itself was very noisy and echoy because of the high ceilings and we found ourselves taling quite loudly to each other. Our first waitor was a little surly and not very helpful with the menu. The wine list was quite limited which surprised us.

Overall we were very disappointed with this restaurant and would not visit again or recommend to friends and family.

I love the food at Roast, but every time we go, the service is really ropey. Staff avoid eye contact. Even when asked if everything was OK and I asked for more gravy, I had to ask twice and I had almost finished my meal before it arrived.

It's a shame the acoustics are so bad (noisy).

The only other thing that lets this restaurant down are the awful toilets. The soap dispenser was broken and they've abolished paper towels which just adds to the water and (other liquid) on the floor in the men's loos.

Would have loved to write a better review. Go here for the food - it's wonderful. just keep your expectations of the rest pretty low and you'll hopefully be OK.
