Service was exceptional - I suffer from a food allergy and am mostly left feeling embarrassed when I eat out, but our server at Roast was phenomenal. This is a restaurant I will frequent and would highly recommend

Read the latest blog post on Roast Perched atop the gourmet retreat of Borough Market, Roast showcases fine British cuisine and supreme seasonal ingredients. Roast bar serves up quirky cocktails amidst the elegant sounds of the in-house grand piano.

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.

    Our family dined at Roast last night, my kids are in their 20's. They have an excellent wine list and there was a really pleasant a chilled aura about the place. So a lively atmosphere and very attentive staff and whilst our food took ages to arrive the maitradie was apologetic which I am happy to always except. I would recommend this restaurant.

    Not a great menu for the £35 deal. Main course choice of ribs were served in a bowl on a wooden board. I had also ordered a side order of carrots but had no plate to put them on and had to eat from the serving bowl. No finger bowls until nearly finished. Waiter was efficient but miserable. I felt that for £35 this was average.

    I have been wanting to go here for some time and it started well with Staff accommodating my request for a change of cocktail flavour (original was pear which I dislike). I enjoyed the replacement but have no idea what I was drinking as the waiter said "don't ask me what's in it - I have no idea!" As it was placed in front of me. The starter of potted salmon and sourdough was very good, the main course of burger and chips was disappointing. Not the best burger I have tasted and the chips were barely warm (but as we had waited over 30 mins between starters and main I couldn't do with sending them back). There was also a problem with my husbands main course so not great all round really. The day was saved by pudding. Delicious sticky toffee pudding with toffee sauce and my husband chose apple and blackberry crumble which was simply presented as an individual portion in a nice deep cast iron dish with a little jug of proper custard. Yummy! Some of the tables are really close together - ours less than six inches from the one next door and the staff had, in my opinion, a bit of an attitude - almost as though we were interrupting their afternoon. All round disappointing and wouldn't rush back!

    Over rated! The food was ok - set menu choice was really limited. Service was terrible - waited so long for our deserts we left without eating them. Disappointing

    Fantastic, decadent, well considered, beautifully presented and interesting food. Great to see English suppliers and food being showcased so well. Rounded off with brilliant service and a lovely ambiance with the live music.

    What an absolute dinning experience - right from the moment we walked through the door! The food was awesome and my sole was the BEST I have ever eaten. Can't wait to go back!

    The food was, as usual, very good but the service was a let down. From the confused reception desk staff, the fact that we waited 10 minutes for our table standing there and then slow and not very attentive table side service, it was quite disappointing.

    I'm normally sceptical about set menu offerings but the options were beautiful in choice and taste. I opted for smoked salmoon on toasted sourdough to start, followed by slow-roasted pork belly with mash potato and a few vegetable sides. For dessert apple and blackberry crumble topped with vanilla ice cream. Across the board it was excellent. Service as I've come to know at Roast is also excellent, ever-present but practically unnoticeable in equal measure. I would highly recommend Roast as one of London's premiere restaurant offerings.
