    A good lunchtime atmosphere and we were given a great table for two next to the window so that we could both watch the interesting outside sights and what was going on in the restaurant too. Service was prompt and efficient. Excellent cocktail and the meal was good, although the sausage a liitle too dry.

    A lovely restaurant with views over Borough market. We booked the three course meal deal and were escorted to a corner table for two overlooking the market, although closed as it was evening time. The meal consisted of a cocktail and three courses for a set price. The choice of food was good, the ambiance and restaurant very lively, and the quality of the food and service fantastic. As a mid-week treat it was well worth the effort to go.

    We dined at the roast on their 3 course plus cocktail for £35 which was excellent. Food was very tasty, good portion sizes. We had the cod which was really lovely and then the sticky date pudding which melted in your mouth. Restaurant was buzing, service excellent and will certainly be going again. Overall experience excellent!

    The setting is lovely, the staff are very friendly and attentive, the food is scrummy but the drinks are a bit pricey. Overall I'd go again.

    I have had my eye on Roast for a while now, I took notice of it when I learned of their great approach to food. All of their ingredients are sourced where possible from the best suppliers that Britain has to offer and are of course all sustainable and ethical.
    Some of the best British food I've had in a while even the bread, fresh daily from Borough market. To start I ordered the Isle of Mull hand dived scallops while my husband had the Scotch Burford Brown Egg both of which were a delight. The scallops were pan seared to perfection, just warmed through in the middle, I even ate the beards which I usually dislike. I sampled some of the Scotch Burford Brown Egg which was made up of pork and haggis with the egg centre, cooked to perfection with a gorgeous running yolk. The meat casing was so soft, and I was surprised by the subtlety of the flavour, all complimented with homemade piccalilli on the side. I'm not a pork or haggis lover but that dish tasted amazing. So, on to the main course, we were not to be disappointed! I ordered the Lancashire Hotpot which was beautifully presented in a mini cast iron pan with pickled red cabbage on the side. This hotpot was melt in the mouth the whole way through, the flavour was just divine in a rich delicious gravy while the thin slices of potato over the top just finished it off. My husband was equally delighted with his slow roasted free range belly pork, he was particularly impressed by the crispiness of the crackling which he reported was a good 70% crisped through and generous portion size. The dessert I'm afraid to say was the only disappointing part of the whole meal. The Baked Boozy Pear wasn't really what I was expecting, it was nice, but not astounding, I had hoped the cinnamon ice cream would provide some comfort but I found it lacking in flavour and " icy" in texture when I would have preferred dreamy creamy.
    Overall, I would rate Roast very highly, the service was fantastic and we both enjoyed it very much.

    Excellent dining experience at Roast. We (a party of 3) dined on a Monday night and the place was 90% full. Great ambience, great service (not in your face) and solid no frills food well cooked and well presented. I had the Scotch Egg for startet followed by the Slow Roast Pork for main washed down with a carafe of the enjoyable house red. Then to finish, excellent blue cheese and a glass of port.Thoroughly recommended but book beforehand or be disappointed
