All roastie toastie again

Finally, last week Mr MDS and I got round to round two at Roast. Our last visit ended in disaster due to customer service/experience. Upon complaining, we were given a voucher with a proper apology. Therefore the slate was wiped clean. I stepped out of a very large puddle due to a huge August down pour into Roast with hope. And it was well worth it. I have to say the food was very nice last time but my palette had been dented before a morsel entered my mouth.

This time I sipped a glass of marvellous English Sparkling Wine, Nyetimber 2005 Classic Curvee Sussex. Then we moved on to an even better Spanish red, a 2007 Rivola. Which I manage to drink with ease despite the glass being nearly as big as my head!


The food was fabulous if a bit rich. There was no way I could even contemplate a pudding. So thank you Roast you are redeemed and I got to give my Topshop blouse an airing even though it was the wettest evening ever in London this summer.

  8. That wine glass is enormous, how many refills did you get from one bottle of wine? Glad the wetness didn't spoil your meal and its great Roast made amends

  9. Good you had a better experience 2nd time round! Somehow I wasn't too impressed by Roast either - neither atmosphere, nor food - so I just didn't go back.
