There were just three of us on a quiet night out but... the food and service made it a night we won’t forget. Our starters included the quail which was perfectly cooked and seemed to have more meat than most quails! The signature dish of...More

Food was delicious as always. Was disappointed by how dirty the WC was in such a nice and kind if expensive restaurant

We took a ride out after reading a travel recommendation and we were both glad to enjoy this treat. The restaraunt isn’t a fancy too do and it almost feels cafeteria style. It’s small and warm and inviting. One can see the kitchen and bakery....More

Excellently cooked and presented. Service excellent. Informal vibe with a great choice of wines. All rounder of a place!

We just popped into St John for a quick snack and were lucky enough to get a table. Everything about the place - service, environment, food and drink - was excellent. We had a couple of the 'specials' - slices of venison and smoked sprats...More

The place is very tidy and clean in designs, and everything seems simple and warm. The food is great, very tasty and complex, using every part of the animals and cooking them with respect and simplicity. The menu changes quite regularly and has always special...More

I would never have thought about this place for breakfast, but a bread taster on a food tour and I had to come back with the family. A fabulous bacon sandwich with perfect fresh white bread (lightly toasted and buttered), delicious (slightly smoked) bacon and...More

We have been to the restaurant in Smithfield many times and been here for a bacon sandwich once before but this was our first evening meal at St John Bread and Wine. I loved that it was a different experience to the restaurant in Smithfield....More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

Well, it is London... you can and should come as you are, really. But, make an effort. As you would when dining out. This place is casual though, not super-posh. And it is in East London, meaning, you probably wouldn't look... More
