Roast is best for...

Fry-Up
Roast in Borough Market prides itself on its British menu and ingredients; their fry-up has their own recipe sausages and bacon and black pudding of the highest quality. It's also very picturesque, housed in the beautiful Floral Hall which overlooks the market.

Wines
Roast champion British food and so does their cellar, particularly wines from producers Chapel Down in Kent. But there are plenty of other options from around the world too, with some exceptional bottles starting from just over the £30 mark.

The All In London Review

"British food at its best"

All In London Rating: 8 / 10
Added Fri 31 Aug 2012 - Reviewed by Leila



British food still gets a bad rap around the world. Can you believe it? Yes, while weíre tucking into black pudding Scotch eggs and crisp pork belly with apple sauce, neighbours near and far away are scoffing at the thought of us eating chicken boiled in a bag.

Thereís nothing of the sort at Roast, which has a menu devoted to traditional British cooking. Instead there are salt beef croquettes (mind you, the salt beef is Irish), creamy in the middle, with chunks of salty meat, served with a rich pea puree and fresh dandelion. There is a dish of sliced chargrilled courgette, in a tangy, tomato-based dressing, sprinkled with goatís curd.

The main courses include a lamb neck fillet which is as soft as marshmallow, pink in the middle and beautifully seasoned with herbs. Itís paired with a salad of spelt, tabbouleh-style with heaps of parsley and lemon, and a large dollop of cucumber yoghurt. A roasted fillet of sea trout is another herby dish, with flavoursome girolles and mashed potato. And there is nothing more classically British than roast potatoes with beef dripping, gloriously crispy on the outside.

And dessert? A rhubarb and apple crumble with vanilla custard has the perfect balance of sweet and sour, while a Green & Blacks chocolate tart is topped with mousse made from sea buckthorn berries, another contrasting match of rich and sharp flavours.

There is a vast wine list, with wines hailing from all over the world, even a fair few from good old Blighty, however we opt for a Beaujolais-Village 2010, Domaine du Vissoux, which for £38 is exceptional and a great complement to the lamb.

Occupying the upper level of the beautiful Floral Hall, with its high ceiling and large windows that overlook Borough Market and St. Paulís, itís hard to believe this building was once used for storage. Current chef Marcus Verberne arrived as recently as January, but his CV includes stints at J Sheekey and The Ivy, and heís certainly raising the bar here. Next time someone starts badmouthing British food in your presence, point them in the direction of Roast.
