Perched atop the gourmet retreat of Borough Market, Roast showcases fine British cuisine and supreme seasonal ingredients. Roast bar serves up quirky cocktails, with live music every evening and for Sunday lunch.

Light and airy, the classic dining room at Roast Borough is a calm sanctuary away from the buzz of the lively food market below. Diners can witness the exuberant market scenes through the magnificent arched windows across 3 brightly lit sides of Roast restaurant.

With a tempting array of mouth watering fish, grills, game and roasts, the Roast menu features dishes like roast sirloin of Welsh Black beef with Yorkshire pudding and creamed horseradish, or chargrilled fillet of wild sea bass with a shaved asparagus, fennel and orange salad. Signature dishes at Roast London Bridge include the sublime slow roast free range pork belly with Bramley apple sauce.

Found at Britain's oldest food market, Roast London is renowned for quintessentially English cuisine with an imaginative edge. London Bridge Tube Station is a 4-minute walk away.

    Beautiful restaurant but disappointed with food. Started well with good service and heavenly starter. Dreadful main course - cold and salty jus. We asked for another but this was worse. They offered an alternative but by then we were just feeling unhappy with whole dining experience. They made adjustment on bill but my birthday celebration was spoilt

    The welcome was very warm and we were shown immediately to our table. Unfortunately tables of 2 are immediately adjoining others (next time I'd request a window table) so we were somewhat overwhelmed by the volume of the diners next to us. Service was very good, we were offered the full menu as well as the three course menu we'd booked via Bookatable. However, after leaving we realised we hadn't been offered the glass of prosecco that is meant to come with this three course meal. Given the price of London drinks this was something we wished we'd remembered earlier! Don't forget to ask as it's not detailed on the menu in the restaurant either.

    The food itself was very good. Lorne sausage and black pudding scotch egg and then pork belly for me and roast lamb for my husband. The pork belly was surprisingly meaty with very little fat which is unusual. We ordered a side of roast potatoes and carrots. All the food was little salty for me but perhaps that's just my personal taste. Dessert was apple and pear crumble and hot chocolate pudding with a stout ice cream which certainly had a kick.

    The food of other diners all around us also looked good, massive Yorkshire puddings a-plenty. The lack of space and privacy let our experience down, given that this was a rare child-free day we would only re-book if we were offered a little more space around us.

    Love love love Roast
    Excellent ambience, positive if overly attendant waiting staff but it's the food that is overwhelmingly tasty and filling. The belly pork 5*. The live music was a nice sophisticated touch he was very talented. All in all a lovely birthday meal.

    We had an early NYE sitting but this did not detract from the enthusiasm of the staff - all dressed up/made up for the 'Alice' theme. Champagne complimented the start of the four course meal - the food was absolutely sublime - making the £80 per head price very reasonable.
    Thank you Roast for making it such a lovely evening.

    Very disappointed overall, everything started off ok , we were greeted very nicely and shown to our table. Our daughter was made a fuss of and given a nice colouring set to keep her occupied. The waitress was very polite and attentive.
    We asked what the choices were for the children roast dinner and we were told there was only beef, no selection at all.
    We ordered from the set menu and gave the waitress our complete order starters to dessert.
    We waited about 15-20 mins for our starter and to our dismay our daughters main course of roast beef came out first shortly followed by our starter. We were baffled by this as she now will have to wait for along time for her dessert.
    We finished our starters, my daughter finished her main course in the end as the beef was very tough and chewy, not what you would expect from an establishment like this.
    Then we waited and waited and waited, nearly an hour had gone by and no sign of the main course, tables that had come in a while after us were having there main courses, the waitress came back and apologised for the wait and reassured us that our meals would come out soon. By this time our daughter was getting restless and hungry waiting for her pudding.
    Finally an hour and 15mins later our main courses arrived, the food wasn't hot, but hot enough to eat we were all very hungry by now and very disappointed. My partners roast beef was very tough just as our daughters was, even more disappointed. We've had better meat in a cheap carvery.
    After finishing our mains dessert took another 15 minster to arrive, my daughters and my partners desserts were fine because they were supposed to be seredone chilled but my apple and quince crumble with custard that was supposed to be hot came out half lukewarm and half stone cold. The custard had a skin on it.
    I asked for it to be changed and it was.
    From start to finish our meal and dinning experience took 2 and a half hours.
    Very very disappointed
