SquareMeal Review of Roast

Silver Award

“What’s not to like about ‘meat and vegetables’?” quips an admirer of Roast – a determinedly patriotic eatery dedicated to the glories of traditional British cuisine. Built on a mezzanine floor in Borough Market’s iconic Floral Hall, it promises “fantastic views” from its handsome, light-filled dining room. We’ve been many times for breakfast and never been disappointed, although booking ahead is essential. If you’re more interested in lunch or dinner, you’ll find “reliable” and expertly sourced dishes prepared with a fair degree of dexterity, from Portland crab salad or Scotch eggs with piccalilli to braised ox cheek on creamed onion sauce or whole grilled sea bass with fennel and capers. The menus are keenly seasonal, so also expect spring lamb, summer fruits and game too (“this is the only place to eat grouse after the Glorious 12th”, insists one fan). “Always enjoyable” Sunday roasts naturally get the nod, and the Brit-accented drinks list is also on the money.

About Roast

Situated in the heart of Borough Market, close to some of London’s most iconic landmarks, Roast offers a contemporary take on traditional British dishes.  

The first thing to note about Roast is it’s beautiful setting. Located on the mezzanine floor of the market’s former floral hall, the high ceilings and large windows provide fantastic city views, giving diners a glimpse of the nearby Shard and St Paul’s Cathedral.  

Whether you’re stopping by for breakfast, afternoon tea or Sunday dinner, the menus at Roast are put together using seasonal ingredients, with a real emphasis on fresh British produce. 

The Breakfast menu includes all the cooked favourites including a full English, smoked salmon and eggs Benedict. If you’re after something a little lighter, you could opt for the smashed avocado, granola or porridge. Add something a little special to your breakfast with one of their ‘morning boosters’, which include Bloody Mary, Bucks Fizz and their signature Breakfast Martini!  

The a la carte menu offers a range of British favourites, with starters including Jersey Rock oysters, ham hock and caper terrine and seared Orkney Island scallops. The mains feature beef wellington, pork belly and roast hake, as well as a selection of steaks, sourced from the Lake District.  

On Sundays Roast comes into its own, with the addition of a traditional roast dinner, with choice of beef, chicken and lamb with all the trimmings.  

In addition, Roast also offer an afternoon tea menu, starting at £35 a head, including three courses of cakes, scones and finger sandwiches. You could always opt for the bottomless prosecco afternoon tea, for £55.

Lovely meal

The ambience was good; very relaxed atmosphere. The staff was attentive. The food itself was delicious and the portion sizes we more than enough, I didn't leave the restaurant feeling hungry. It's not cheap, but the quality of the food and the generous portion sizes are definitely value for money.
