    Surprisingly good. Meat was tender and we'll cooked. Recommend the Duck egg, very good surprise. A bit expensive but worth at least 1 try. Plus good location.

    Touristy with prices to match. Food was tasty and portions large but came out a little too quickly. Extensive (and expensive) wine list but the English white was lovely. Basically, paying for location

    Pretty average for the price

    The breakfast was a bit dry. It was served very quickly after ordering so you could tell everything had been kept warm. Hot chocolate was good though. Generally prefer breakfast at Brindisa.

    Roast pork and crackling sandwich with apple sauce exists on another plane of taste

    Get away from the hubbub on the mezzanine. Fillet of Cornish hakewith whipped sweetcorn, Bath Pig chorizo and Padron peppers. Quite an elegant dish.

    James H · September 13, 2014
  • Jeffrey J.

    The food was very good & fresh. The partridge is delicious & the wild duck was moist & tender. Service was quite slow & they forgot some orders. Otherwise a good place & nice ambience.

    Gaze down on the fresh harvest while you plow through dishes that don't let the rump roast sideline all those ripe, glossy fruits and vegetables. Read more

    Simply amazing! Perfect food!

    Check out Roast To Go. The pork, crackling and apple sauce roll is amazing. Don't forget to add english mustard!

    Definitely don't drink the Pilsner. Weakest beer I have ever tasted! But I'm from Belgium so..

    Sticky date pudding comes with creme fraishe, it would be better with clotted cream.

    Kaylie McKelvey · January 18, 2014
  • Kaylie M.

    Sticky date pudding is the same as sticky toffee pudding.

    Kaylie McKelvey · January 18, 2014

    The burger is very good. Very soft and juicy.

    The urinal cakes look like feta cheese.

  • Séverine G.

    Great location, Nice view overlooking the market and traditional english meals, but way too fat! Duck grease in the crab starters, pig belly with grilled fat ok but fat inside was a tad too much \o/

    Simon and Elizabeth go for an awkward date at Roast in Trance (2013), where Simon has a strange feeling he's been there before. Of course he has been before and we see this later in the film.

    Pricey, bad service, not worth it.

    Giuseppe Ganino · November 17, 2013

    Amazing British food. A good treat!

    Phil M · October 30, 2013
  • Andrew O.

    I’d recommend a seat by the window in the atrium. Generous portions and excellent service. Try the Roast sirloin of Galloway beef with a giant Yorkshire pudding or free range pork belly on Sunday.

    Andrew Or · October 20, 2013
  • Amrita L.

    Good food. Although a bit overpriced for what is on the menu as it's all easily accessible all over london for 2/3rds less. Nevertheless I would recommend the steak.

    Amrita Langbour · October 12, 2013
  • Daniel M.

    Great spot on the #londoncocktailweek tour. Very tasty cocktails.

    Daniel McGuinness · October 10, 2013

    Fantastic place for a work lunch. Food was great and the service even better. If you are seeking a venue that is impressive but not over stated then Roast gets our thumbs up!

    Simply great service and even better food!

    Sunday roast portions are huge.

    Ting Tsai · September 8, 2013
  • Marcio C.

    It's a waste of time and money! Much better go and eat throughout borough market, which has a lot of good options.

    Marcio Cantelli · July 14, 2013

    Best roast in town

    Dean The Hero · June 16, 2013
  • Julian H.

    Get a loyalty card if you are a regular visitor and do try the weekend burger very good indeed if that is your thing

    Julian H · June 11, 2013
  • Suraj A.

    Avoid, unless you want to be surrounded by stuffy suits with expense accounts.

    Suraj Acharya · May 30, 2013
  • Tanya Z.

    Food is perfect! We had a rib-eye, rack of lamb, heirloom carrots, chicken broth and chargrilled asparagus with smoked salmon, all fantastic!

    Tanya Z · May 6, 2013
  • W Scott W.

    Best cocktails in London. Try the Ol' Fashioned or the Tequila Twighlight!

    Manx Queenies are amazing!
