We have been to Roast before for dinner and brunch and had such good experiences we decided to bring friends here for a late Sunday Lunch. The restaurant wasn't full and as requested we got a lovely table by the window. The restaurant is in Borough Market so the window gives a nice view of the markets activities. (There is of course a lot more going on during the week or on a Saturday) As with a lot of the restaurants in the Borough Market area there is a strong emphasis on local seasonal produce.
We even had a wine from Kent - Bacchus, which got a resounding thumbs up from everyone at the table.
Our meal was excellent from start to finish. We had cuttlefish, chorizo croquettes and ribbon courgettes to start and we all had roast beef with Yorkshire pudding for the main course. I loved that we could choose how we wanted the beef to be cooked and liked it even more when it arrived cooked perfectly. We were served an assortment of vegetables and roast potatoes.
The set menu for £35 included desserts and we were not disappointed when fruit crumble, vanilla parfait, almond loaf and cheese selection arrived
Our waitress was charming, the food was excellent, we didn't feel rushed even though we were the last diners and the live music was a nice finishing touch to a lovely meal.
Thank you Roast. We will be back and I will certainly recommend that friends come here.
