Square Meal Review of Roast ?

Opened 10 years ago by Cinnamon Club founder Iqbal Wahhab, Roast has become a Borough Market classic. It occupies handsome high-ceilinged premises overlooking the market below, with a dining room featuring well-dressed tables and impressive arched windows. Meat is its métier: we love the British-reared beauties such as meltingly soft rare-breed suckling pig with mash and Bramley apple sauce, flavour-drenched beef Wellington, and steaks to rival Hawksmoor. Other dishes – hake with whipped Jerusalem artichoke and brown shrimps, say, or a starter of creamed spelt with chanterelles and chard – are less lauded but show equal attention to detail. Tight tables and boomy acoustics are common complaints, and some diners reckon the experience is “underwhelming compared to the hype” but the “efficient and almost invisible” service is highly praised. The extensive wine list (with some bargains), and the legendary Full Borough breakfasts, are two more boasts of Roast.
