I'm pleased Roast are opening a dialogue in this forum.
I also avoided Roast due to the reviews I read just after it opened but I am keen to support new restaurants in the area and I'm always keen for new brunch/dinner venues. I used to spend a lot of Sundays at the Butler's Wharf chains but I've been visiting the new Wagamama
s at the Clink and Festival Hall rather a lot recently.
Sunday on the riverside can be very frustrating due to the fact that everywhere is packed and most places only do lunch which really means that at 3pm, they've all run out of their 'roast of the day'.
So a destination for a meaty brunch before an afternoon on the riverside would be welcome, as would somewhere which could actually sell you roast beef and veg at 7pm.
I would be fully supportive of Borough Market
opening on a Sunday.
