Roast for Dinner

One of the restaurants Beardy Fiance and I attend once in a blue moon is Roast in Borough Market.  It’s an absolutely beautiful view there in the evening, and there’s something lovely about hanging out there once all the stalls have closed and coming to dinner at Roast.

Beardy Fiance’s parents had come over from Ireland and the restaurant is one that they had enjoyed with friends before (and I have a definite weakness for their mashed potatoes) so we thought we’d share the food we enjoyed there.  Roast is definitely a believer in using seasonal ingredients, which is obviously a great way of tying yourself to the local area and supporting local food producers, as well as increasing the quality of the food.

I wanted to give you a bit of a snapshot of a dinner at Roast, as well as an idea of our opinions on the food.

Beardy Fiance’s father had the Scotch egg for a starter and mentioned that he had felt it was better when he’d eaten there several nights before.

DSC_1308Beardy Fiance had the pork belly with the mashed potatoes and apple sauce – the mash is absolutely amazing.  Amazing mash.  I might even go so far as to call it super legendary mash.  Worth the attendance for the mash alone.

DSC_1309I went for the pan-fried chicken with peas.  I needed peas to go along with my mash and lovely little succulent pieces of chicken.

DSC_1310Beardy Fiance’s mum got some fish with a lovely tomato wedges, which she really enjoyed.  I normally wouldn’t have thought “seafood” when considering British food, but there are great seafood resources in Cornwall, Scotland and even near London.

We all had a great time on the night out and it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re interested in a nice, slightly more expensive dinner in the London Bridge area.
