What Insiders Are Saying
St John Bread and Wine serves food from the legendary St. John in Farringdon, but in an informal canteen-style dining room near Spitalfields Market.
Great food, very friendly service
Consistently perfect. Fantastic ingredients presented with the minimum of fuss. No hiding behind spices or sauces, just deft cooking.
Good place to enjoy real food! Authentic menu! Good service and good wine!
Visiting from Toronto, Canada - St John Bread & Wine is a must any time we are in London.
One of the staff being too laid back and a bit rude when he served the wine to us. (It was during their Wednesday open bottle time and we asked to try the wine. Usually, they offer to customers straight away when they sitting down)
Other than that, food was great as always. Especially the skate with samphire and capers.
Superb..my fav in London!
brilliant, as always. i'm currently having to follow the keto diet and they catered brilliantly for me.
Having eaten at St John in Farringdon many times this was my first visit to the sister restaurant. Deco pretty similar - sparse and simple. Food was amazing but be warned there are lots of sharing dishes and these are huge - we therefore ordered far too much food! Service was very good. I had meant to have one of my favourite Eccles cakes with cheese but I simply didn’t have enough room! I’ll have to go back again soon!
Best breakfast in London! Amazing quality and traditional food
Off the charts. I am lucky to have dined in a number of world class restaurants, including St. John Smithfields, and this was equal to or exceeded the very best. An immersive solo dining experience, only made better by Philip's attentive, jocular service. Spectacular.
Slow service, overpriced and no atmosphere.
Food was great, yet the service was generally inattentive.
Amazing food! Very efficient and knowledgeable staff and excellent service.
Very surprised not that much of people taken advantage of their open bottle Wednesday offer (free glass of wine for everyone) food was excellent as always.
Service unbelievably great very knowledgeable and what I liked gave personal preferences. Food was so delicious and presented well. Came out as it was ready which suited us
seemingly unfussy and stripped back, but you can tell when close attention to detail is being payed both in the kitchen and in the presentation.
Excellent choice of food and wine. We would have preferred a greater choice of fish courses.
Don’t believe the hype. Truly, amateur service, the kitchen ran out of 5 plus items, wine list is basic. This is what happens when food writers get special treatment and free meals, over exposure and under deliver.
This is on the level of my foodie friends dinner party at home, but I got a £120 bill at the end.
I've never not enjoyed a St John lunch or dinner. It's always a great place to catch up with someone over good food and drinks. I always feel welcomed and there really isn't any other place like it in London...other than their other places Smithfield and Neal's Yard. :-) Service is always top notch - kind and genuine.
Good food. Good service. Very relaxing environment.
Pretty close to their usual high standards
Really lovely birthday meal at St John’s. It was nice to share everything. Some of the big plates could have been slightly bigger but overall really well cooked food.
The madeleines were delicious - they were fresh and warm out of the oven! :)
incredible food and an amazing wine selection. 12/10
Usually this restaurant is great but for the first time ever it’s ticked the average/disappointing box. Went here on Good Friday for breakfast and the food just wasn’t as good as it normally is.
St John Bread and Wine is consistently superb - delicious understated food cooked with with simplicity and and care.
It’s so easy to get food like this wrong - no sauces or multiple ingredients to hide behind.
Service is faultless.
A really lovely restaurant on a lazy Sunday morning when we had escaped from our children and it was the morning after a wedding ceremony !
Just what we needed and we were so pleased we had booked and got a chance to experience St John Bread and Wine
The food was fantastic - great quality and flavours. And the staff were lovely. We had a really pleasant evening.
I went to St John 3 times while traveling in London and each time it was a great experience and very great British food. My English friends agreed that they did the classics very well.
Something like a perfect friend- so much itself and generous in all it has to offer. Not fussy, but so well rehearsed. Hard to imagine a better execution.
Great food and location. Slightly weak service this time 😬
Fantastic food, great atmosphere. All round wonderful dining!
If you love offal or have are curious about various meats and pieces than this is the place for you. The menu changes daily so I would suggest maybe trying to sneak a peek at the menu before making reservations as not everything may be suitable to your taste. We were hoping to have some bone marrow but wasn't served today. Very much nose to tail restaurant. Great wine list!
Very nice that there is no music.
Good food and service.
Not our first time to this British institution but a little disappointed. Small portions, we ordered Beef with kidney and mash and there were about 4 pieces of beef with huge chunks of kidney that overpowered the dish. At £22 a pop for that dish I would also expect some veggies to be offered and not have to pay £5-6 extra. Paid £9 for a slither of celeriac and cheese layered pie, which was very tasty but more of it please!
A marvelous English lunch!
Bit too expensive
Excellent as always though I think the servers were a bit puzzled by my friends Northern sense of humor!
Ventured here while visiting from New York on a recommendation from a good friend in Chicago. Stellar food. Fresh and clean flavors. It is amazing how such simply prepared food can taste so stunningly fantastic!
St. John Bread and Wine offers a wonderful dining experience: exquisitely prepared and adventurous food served in unfussy surrounds by immensely helpful and personable staff. A terrific meal.
