We went to Roast last week for supper. It was, all in all, an 'ok' experience but nothing more than that. The menu looks more interesting than it tastes, the restaurants looks more attractive than it is and the staff seem friendlier than they really are. It wasn't bad but certainly not great either.
We paid £110 for two.
Yesterday we went to the Royal Oak for a good roast and a divine Sherry Trifle. Much better and much friendlier service and an authentic decor. Highly recommended.
I'm very disappointed to read all this. The night I went, in the first week, the service was pretty scrappy, (though friendly) but the food was delicious. No excuse for continued bad service -- and it's death in this internet age.
I was in Brighton, watching Mrs I shop, and to top it all the alleged best cider pub in Brighton was shut for the day while they resanded the floorboards.
As we were walking back near the Oak from London Bridge, at about 6pm, neither of us fancying the prospect of cooking, we both said how nice it would be if only the Oak was open and we could let them cook for us.
