Time Out says
As the hordes of Borough Marketeers stuff their faces while standing up, above them in the elegant mezzanine Floral Hall is the more refined eating option – the staunchly British Roast, which feels like the perfect restaurant to have at the heart of London’s larder. The formal operation (precise service, gleaming tableware on white cloths) contrasts with the generally jolly crowd, who rock up for special occasions and family get-togethers in often casual clobber. It’s a very pleasant place for a long lunch or luxurious breakfast. You’d be disappointed if the roasts themselves weren’t up to scratch – but they’re among the city’s best. Free-range pork belly with apple sauce, Goosnargh chicken with bread sauce, or blackface lamb with mint relish all appear. These are bracketed with sophisticated starters (we had grilled sardines with pickled beetroot and blood orange), and grown-up versions of British puds. Visit on a Sunday, as many do, and the menu is restricted to £37.50 for three courses, which although very filling seems rather steep – indeed, prices across the board aren’t especially economical. Still, Roast is right at home amid the food-focused throng of Borough Market.
Spaciously set over two levels, our guests have a view of our exceptional show kitchen and London highlights such as The Shard, St Paul's and of course the historic Borough Market below.
Since opening in 2005, Roast has quickly become synonymous with British cuisine and is popular for breakfast meetings, weekend family lunches, pre-dinner cocktails and exceptional dinners. Roast is truly a restaurant for all occasions. Alongside Roast’s acclaimed menu which boasts the best of British produce, sits a cocktail and wine list with an incredible array of bespoke cocktails and wines on offer.
