Celebrating the finest of indigenous British produce and making the most of what is seasonally best whilst applying straight forward cooking techniques, St. John is now celebrated as one of the 50 Best Restaurants in the World and in 2009 was awarded its first Michelin Star.
Nose to tail eating means that, where appropriate, every part of the animal should be put to good use in the kitchen and so along with Roast Beef and Lemon Sole, diners will find Rolled Pig’s Spleen, Kidneys and Ox Heart, Liver and Chitterlings as well as the Roast Bone Marrow & Parsley Salad, something of a ‘signature’ dish.
Whilst often cited as not a restaurant to take a vegetarian to, the kitchen source and prepare dishes for vegetarians with the same amount of studiousness as they do the meat, fish and poultry and desserts.

Consistently outstanding food. Always great, friendly service in bustling atmosphere. Reliably brilliant.
My favourite restaurant in London.
I always enjoy St John! The menu has some staples that you must try over the course of a few visits, and their menu is always different/seasonal/a variation of things which keeps it interesting for repeat visits. It's a very relaxed place to be, not uptight in the slightest. Impeccable and extensive wine list, a simple cocktail menu. Overall the experience is just fantastic. Love the vibe of the building, it's a great place you must go and go home with a dozen madeleines for tomorrow.
They can do no wrong in my eyes. LOVE everything about St John
Perfect in every way, as always. Easily my favourite restaurant in London
An excellent meal up to the usual St John standard. Informative and pleasant staff. Thank you and see you again
Absolutely stunning lunch, as usual.
Love St John and was so glad we got to get in before the new T3 rules.
Perfect lunch. So pleased we made it before Christmas and Tier 3.
A very special occasion and lovely afternoon spent eating and drinking.
I’m still thinking about the braised lamb.
Always enjoy St John always excellent. Food as it should be.
We had a gorgeous lunch - the food was delicious, the service warm and friendly (and efficient!) - I’m now looking for another excuse to dine there!
One of the most best meals I've eaten in London. The bone marrow salad Is a show stopper. The staff are incredibly knowledgable and attentive - our waiter Ryan especially so.
St John was all we expected and more. Relaxed and informal setting but with high calibre service - we never felt rushed and the waiting staff were incredibly knowledgable. The food was wonderful and I can highly recommend the bone marrow, grilled mackerel and the fabulous pies. We look forward to returning!!
Excellent food. Extremely well cooked. Great and knowledgeable service.
Some of the best food in London. Simple yet delicious. Big portion sizes and a great selection.
Absolutely wonderful as always. They do everything with style
Great food and so nice to come here for a change from home cooked food. Interesting menu full of items you wouldn’t cook at home. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
For a quiet classy lunch/supper, would totally recommend St J. Staffed by proper real people.
Exceptional as always!
Delivered on a fine lunch as always. Great british food well cooked
Lunch was a complete delight; a varied and inspiring menu where each of us (party of four) had something different and were all completely content with our choices. One could have lunched here every day for a week and would never be bored by what is on offer.
Still my favourite place around. As good as ever!!
Perfect food, perfect service, perfect drinks, perfect evening. Thank you.
I love St John. The food is always outstanding and the ambient is comfortable, not pretentious at all.
It was wonderful to be out of house arrest (AKA lockdown) and back at St John where we love the place, the food and the atmosphere - thank you! But of course the experience is seriously marred by all these ridiculous measurements - masks, tables miles apart etc etc - which reinforce how the government have taken us for mugs and decimated our civil liberties. It's just another virus! Not much worse than a bad flu! Bring back common sense, acceptable risk and personal responsibility and stop treating us like infants! I just hope you can continue to make a viable business in the current climate as we would hate to lose you. But we are mystified why restaurants and pubs have not made MUCH more of a fuss and together (together you'd have a LOUD voice surely) spoken up more vehemently against all the fear-mongering, which is NOT backed up by 'science' or the figures. Could do better, but good luck and keep up the good work...
Fantastic to finally sit in the restaurant area. Staff were super attentive and the menu was exceptional as always. A real treat. Thank you.
5* all round. Superb food, wine and stellar service in a relaxing and non pretentious environment. Loved it!
Waiter was so rude. I asked if he could talk us through the menu and he spoke in such a condescending way that I wanted to leave the restaurant as fast as I could. We ended up taking away our dessert.
The legend continues. Super service, fabulous food.
Excellent. Traditional but not tired fare. A deep respect for the animal is evident.
Outrageously delicious and reasonably priced for such incredible food. Understated environment and very comfortable for that reason. Clientele reflect this relaxed mood. I can’t wait to come back!
As remembered and expected very tasty nose to tail fare. My only issue was the overly fatty mutton stew. It was too rich for me but was gobbled up by my younger dinner companion.
Briiliant - as always - look forward to visiting you again on the other side of lockdown.
One of the best meals we have had in a long time. Fantastic wine, fresh ingredients that they make exceptionally tasty. Great value for the amount of food as well. Don’t miss out on the madelines - they are devine!
Excellent experience - from the service to the food and wine!
It’s easy to see why St John is such an institution on the London food scene and beyond!
Delicious food and very helpful waiters who helped us choose wines to match our meal.
Perfect pre-lockdown lunch. As ever, all conceived and executed perfectly.
conviviality and edible joy of the highest order, as always.
The latest in many visits to St John and it never lets us down. Food, drinks, service and atmosphere always perfect.
Great food and wine, amazing service, wonderful atmosphere. One of my favourite places in London
Always wonderful! I’ve been a regular for 25 yrs.
Simple (yet not simplistic) quality British food. Great atmosphere and place, very relaxing. Would recommend both for romantic date & group dinners.
