Review of the Saturday Roast @ The Croft

If you’re British, or have lived in the U.K. or even have friends that did then you’d know all about a Sunday roast. It’s probably a tradition or ritual of sorts where all the family gathers together to catch up over a meal, be it cooked at home or out at a pub.

At home, it’s exciting as the you can smell the aromas of the meat of choice, roasting away in the oven for hours whilst you eagerly await dinner time.

For those British expats that miss the joys and accessibility of a Sunday (Saturday Roast) then fear no more.

Darren Velvick and the team at The Croft are whipping up one not to be missed. Served every Saturday from 4pm until gone, there are 5 options to choose from including chicken, beef sirloin, lamb loin, organic salmon and even a nut roast for the vegetarians.

Last night my friend and I tried the lamb loin and the beef sirloin, the former which comes with a side of mint sauce and the latter with a horseradish cream.


When they arrived I was so impressed with the portion size and presentation. They didn’t skimp on anything. They serve it with creamy sweet potato mash and crunchy roasted potatoes as well as heirloom carrots, purple cabbage and perfectly cooked broccoli. Not to mention the giant Yorkshire pudding filled with gravy. This is exactly what a roast dinner should look like.

If you like a tipple with your dinner then you can enjoy their happy hour with house vino from 28aed per glass or 135aed per bottle. The house white – colombelle blanc is sweet on the palette but refreshing on a warm afternoon.


You can choose to sit inside in front of the open plan kitchen or outside on the deck to soak up the last of the rays or catch the warm breeze. Inside you’ll see the masters at work plating up the special of the day.


If there’s any room left you might be tempted by the dessert menu which has quiet a few options to choose from. The warm chocolate with crispy cornflakes is for the chocolate fans, a warm fondant served with milk ice cream and chocolate flakes.


I went with the rhubarb & custard, a famously British dessert, which is served with blobs of cold custard amongst poached rhubarb sticks and crunchy crumbs of oats.


So if you’re looking for a deliciously filling dinner on a Saturday afternoon or evening then head to The Croft, 5th floor inside Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel & Suites, where the service is warm, the atmosphere is relaxed and the food is sure to delight.
