SquareMeal Review of
The produce is British and so are the beers at this foodie destination, so go for London-brewed Meantime and order moreish patriotic snacks at Roast’s buzzy, airy stand-alone bar overlooking
Borough Market. Try a Burford Brown Scotch egg with Macsween’s haggis and piccalilli or Grimsby smoked haddock croquettes with horseradish mayo and foraged herbs for size. The lengthy drinks menu
is strong on rums and accessibly priced malt whiskies, but also features around two dozen wines by the glass, carafe and bottle: £32 secures Chapel Down sparkling rosé. Live jazz and jam sessions
set the tone for cocktails such as tangerine cosmo, sumptuous old fashioned (cinnamon and orange-infused Hibiki whiskey with chocolate bitter and maraschino liqueur) or pumpkin bite (pumpkin purée,
ginger liqueur, spiced Bacardi and fresh cranberry juice). The line-up of ‘pudding cocktails’ such as apple turnover is a sweet idea.
