I celebrated my 30th bday here and the staff (Louise and Martin) fell over themselves to make it amazing for me. EVERY request I made was met and exceeded inc applying for a late license and creating a signature cocktail, naming it after me for the night and allowing my friend and I to come for free tasting sessions!!!

We had a great engagement party here last week, the staff could not have been more friendly or accommodating. The new décor is fab, really smart looking, everyone commented on it. It was a perfect choice for our mixed crowd of old and young, and in a convenient location for locals and out-of-towners alike. The staff helping us organise things... More

Martin and Louise at the venue were brilliant. They couldn't do enough to make sure we were happy with everything. The DJ was great, got the music spot on for the crowd. The food was plentiful, tasty and well received. Great place to party. We were a group of 40-45 and the space worked well. You could easily have more... More

Wonderful setting by the river. Very busy so need to get in early and secure a table. Everything sounded delicious I went for the steak burger, others ordered the pulled pork, peri peri chicken&bbq melt. All served with homemade chips&coleslaw plus salad. Everyone agreed meal was delicious. Will go again for sure!

I chose The Roast for my 30th birthday party after having heard several good reports.... They weren't wrong. The staff are relaxed and informal however the room was decorated exactly as I wanted and the food was exactly what I ordered - I couldn't have asked for more. The food and drink prices are very resonable and the location is... More

We booked Roast for our staff summer party and it was excellent from beginning to the end. Nothing we asked for was to much for them. We had a Mexican theme and they decorated the venue for us, offered us a Mexican themed BBQ menu and Martin even wore a sombrero throughout! Would definitely recommend the venue and the service!
