Roast announces plans for second restaurant

Borough Market institution Roast has announced it is opening a second London site called Roast Kitchen later this year.

Heading up the kitchen will be ex-Bread Street Kitchen head chef Paul Shearing, who also previously worked as head chef at One Aldwych and as a sous chef at Bibendum.

Set to launch in the autumn, Roast Kitchen will be an all-day British dining concept that will be similar to Roast but offer a more casual dining experience.

The restaurant will have a "utilitarian" feel, set across two floors and will serve classics from the Roast restaurant menu, such as pork belly, as well as new, exclusive dishes.


Opened in 2005, Roast restaurant in Borough Market serves British cuisine, specialising in roast dinners.

John Turner, chief executive at Roast Group, said: "We're extremely excited to be expanding the Roast Restaurant group after a very successful 12 years in business. Roast Kitchen will epitomise everything we stand for, serving traditional British dishes made using only the finest ingredients, in a less formal take on our original Borough Market restaurant."
