Venue spotlight on Roast

Roast is a unique British restaurant and event space situated in the portico of Borough’s former flower market. Spectacular views are offered from every angle – whether it’s overlooking their open kitchen or the historic setting of Borough Market directly below.

Roast celebrates and champions Britain’s incredible food heritage and their Executive Chef Paul Shearing uses the finest seasonal ingredients to create classic dishes that both supports and celebrates Britain’s farmers and producers (many of whom are stallholders in the market).

The venue itself offers a light-filled event space available for exclusive or semi-exclusive hire seven days a week. It’s a sought after choice for corporate entertainment, speaker events, parties, breakfast briefings and even location shoots.

For smaller gatherings, the bar area can accommodate up to 45 standing. The restaurant can allow 120 seated and 180 standing or up to 70 seated in their the semi-private dining space.
