The restaurant looks good; it’s all dark wood and brass fixtures. The menu is simple and lovely: you get a whole, half or quarter of a chicken, and then fancy it up with some tapas plates (listed in the misleadingly-named ‘To Share’ section).
The side dishes are lovely; we sampled the house pickled slaw, the pumpkin fritters which were divine in lemon sherbet and cinnamon. The spicy sauces to adorn the chicken with are absolutely divine.
Roast & Co gets kudos for their use of free range chicken from Elgin, and we also like the Warwick wines association, as their wines are always a winner. But the pricing feels a bit steep for the portions, and while the food was enjoyable, we’re not sure it warrants more than the occasional visit.
