What they say: Roast Restaurant in London’s iconic Borough Market uses the finest seasonal ingredients to create classical British cooking that both supports and celebrates Britain’s farmers and producers, many of whom are stallholders in the market.
Spaciously set over two levels, the restaurant seats 120 with a view of our busy kitchen, The Shard, St Paul’s and the market below.
Roast is a restaurant for all occasions, popular for breakfast meetings, weekend family brunches, pre-dinner cocktails and exceptional lunches and dinners.
What we say: “I visited Roast Restaurant for Breakfast on Saturday 17th July with a friend.
I have not ever been to Borough Market so was really impressed with the hustle and bustle and different types of food on sale. Nestled in the middle of the market is Roast Restaurant. We arrived at 11am and received a warm welcome from the front desk and had a table for two by the window, perfect for people watching on the High Street.
The menu is very impressive offering options from Full English Breakfast known as The Full Borough and lighter options.
Our waiter took our drink order and we opted for a glass of prosecco and bucks fizz plus water. The service was prompt and courteous.
Roast had a really buzzy atmosphere and tables were filled with groups of family, friends and couples. My friend opted for the Full Borough breakfast and I opted for the Ultimate Breakfast Burger. Helen enjoyed the Full Borough which includes her guilty pleasure of black pudding so was a real treat!
My breakfast Burger was much lighter than I thought (which is good thing) and the different flavours of the raisin and cinnamon bagel, relish, bacon, kale, egg and pork patty worked really well together. The burger hit the spot and was just the right amount for a breakfast.
During our breakfast we were served coffee, which although a little strong for my liking was served hot and fresh.
After breakfast we moved into the bar area to have another coffee which enabled Helen and I to catch up further and look over the market.
Roast is certainly a great venue for breakfast with an unusual vantage point. It is worth the extra cost for the breakfast to enjoy a wonderful high-end experience in arguably London’s best food market.”
