Food was acceptable, there are much better venues and Sundays roasts in London, price is way to high for the quality of food. At best it’s average but the price is crazy. Service was abrupt and clunky, it was ok but £120 for two with a glass of wine each is ridiculous for a Sunday lunch, would have been happy to pay that if it was at that level of food, it really wasn’t

We came here on Sunday for my daughter’s 21st Birthday for lunch, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience from start to finish. Very attentive staff, great food and nice wine and cocktails. Sat in a window table with great views over to St Paul’s.

Great location, beautiful restaurant, pleasant service, atmosphere and the theme restaurant go hand in hand. Perfect for a special family day out. I cannot complain about the roast dinner, very good quality, not the best roast I've ever had but by far the most expensive. The overall experience makes up for price of the food.

My friends and I had set menu for dinner, which was a great value for money. The portion was very generous and all dishes were tasty. It wasn't too loud so we didn't have to shout over the table which can be quite common in many restaurants in central London on Saturday night. The service was great too. I would definitely recommend.

We visited Roast for my mum and dad's birthday. I did enjoy the experience, the food was good, our drinks waiter was really lovely. You have a great view and it is a nice setting. One issue though, I did email about it being their birthday and also called and was told they would receive a dessert plate which they never received, so that was a bit disappointing.

Unusual for every course to be great, but all were fantastic. The quality of the food and the execution are tops. Not cheap, but worth the price. Need to be careful though not to get too pricey.

Food was outstanding and service excellent but the price of drinks is astronomical. I had two vodka and tonics and was charged £30 for them which I think is well overpriced. Cost of wine was again very expensive but that is my only criticism.

The roast beef itself was tasty but the Yorkshire pudding was cold (twice) and the potatoes were rock hard on the outside. Definitely not worth the price. The service was excellent but not enough to make up for the flaws in the kitchen.

I met my friend for an early dinner yesterday. Roast had been on my list for a long while and I am so glad that I have finally had the opportunity to dine there.
I had the lamb.....delicious! My friend had the featherblade and pork belly....equally delicioius!
The setting is beautiful, the service is impeccable but not in your face and the atmosphere is relaxed.
I will definitely go again.

This restaurant came highly recommended. We had the Sunday Lunch roast, the total bill with a glass of champagne and a small glass of red wine came to £118.00 including service. Which I think is over priced for Sunday lunch for two. It was meant to be a bite to eat before heading to the theatre.

The starter of Salmon and crab had a distinct lack of crab, and the salmon was greasy and cloyey.

Almost immediately the main course arrived. The roast potatoes were very good, but the beef which I'd requested as medium came up quite rare and bloody. I sent it back to the kitchen and it was returned like shoe leather - consequently I left most of it. The slow cooked lamb was over cooked and very dry.

We then had almost half hour wait for dessert/cheese. The sticky date pudding was rubbery and really only just warm.

We asked for the bill and then proceeded to watch the waitress clear tables, handout menus, take orders, we asked again and 'oops' she had forgotten. When asked if everything was ok I said 'ok' but honestly I didn't have the time or energy to go over it all. So really disappointed and doubt we will go back.

The ambiance is lovely and we had a table in the corner over looking the market.

Partner and I went for 3 vegan courses, my parents went for 3 omni. Tortellini was 5* to start. Flavours and textures well balanced and all on point. No flavour to be had in the gnocchi - it was beyond the reproach of salt and pepper. Very disappointing. Ma's roast didnt look great. Veg seemed a bit old school..soft, overcooked. Potatoes looked like they had been sat around for a while. Rice pudding was to finish was a return to form for the vegans. The waiting staff were attentive throughout and we were made to feel welcome and were bidded a fond farewell from the greeters. A good experience.

We’re regulars at Roast, and it never disappoints. On this occasion the lunchtime opening “rush” caused a couple of minor hiccups, which didn’t detract from a very enjoyable birthday Sunday lunch.

We visited Roast as a family. Our boys aged 10 and 11 love well prepared meat dishes, so selected from the adult menu although a child menu is available. They ate chateaubriand and the full and proper beef roast. They are 90% of it and thoroughly enjoyed it! In fact, I would not manage to eat as much, as portions were very generous.
Scotch egg starter, and Yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes were outstanding, as was the beef.
Service was attentive and I would have no hesitation in returning.

The food here is delicious. The flavours are well arranged and you get a modest portion of extremely flavoursome food, rather than the larger portion of so so food many places offer. Everything was well balanced. We had the Sunday roast and even our fussy standard of what constitutes a good roast potato was met. Perfect for a special occasion!
