Great atmosphere and service! I love this kind of cuisine where the produce of the season is used to prepare great meals. Portions are large. I’d prefer slightly smaller plates so one can try more from the menu. Great wine selection. Thanks for great evening!
A perfect birthday meal that exceeded our expectations. Flavour at the forefront, friendly service & great ambience as always.
Business meal for 2. Starters: Cods Roe (5/5 - very interesting and tasty), Terrine (3/5 - good enough but nothing special). Mains: Skate with capers & chives (4/5 - good combination / tasty), Venison & Red Cabbage (3/5 - venison a bit chewy, but not bad overall). Pudding: Eccles cake & Wensleydale (4/5 - a bit different and nice way to end the meal).
Wine list: quite long / interesting and plenty of not overly expensive options.
The decor is basic but fine. The place was full but not overly noisy. Service seemed a little stretched but our waiter did a good job given it was so busy.
Overall, we enjoyed the food and the atmosphere and I will definitely give this restaurant another go.
Excellent! Tapas style. We wanted everything on the menu! Highly recommended!
Amazing food if you're looking for old fashioned British food. Not really for vegetarians 😂
As advertised. The legacy continues . Culinary dream destination ✅
Always absolutely delicious with a great atmosphere - St John is a proper London institution with authentic British cooking
One of the best restaurants I have visited in a long time. I had parsnip soup, followed by kedgeree, and hazelnut and brandy pudding. I can't remember what my friend had for a starter, but she had butternut squash with curd as a main, and ice cream for pudding. We agreed that all was delicious and one couldn't really ask for better.
hello, the meal was amazing and a very nice service.
Disappointed as it used to be my favourite restaurant in London. The food is still good but the quality of the service has seriously deteriorated. They were really not that busy but no one was really waiting for us towards the end of the dinner. I remember a few years ago they would give you two large slices of bread to start and as much bread as needed during dinner. We were given a terrine with no bread. After asking for some, we were given one and a half slice - one of them with a large whole in it.
Excellent, as always. Great staff and cracking food a pleasure to eat here
Service was brilliant despite it being quite busy. Food, as always, bordered on revelatory.
A lovely convivial place. We go there as much for the atmosphere and the service as for the food. Great and varied menu - you can eat a little or a lot and sharing plates aren’t compulsory. Oxheart, chips and ketchup was delicious. We also had a cabbage and shrimp salad, eccles cake with cheese and a wonderfully creamy, nutty parfait with hot madeleines. These were all great. Kedgeree not so good - too many red onions and an overpowering chutney - but this just a blip.
Fake news! Went last Friday morning. We were the only ones there. The type of establishment where the service makes you feel like they're doing you a favor. Food bland. A place that thinks it is acceptable to not offer butter (or anything) with a plain piece of toast (unless you ask) and where they'll serve you a piece of fish with a thousand tiny bones making it impossible to savor a single bite.
We always go here New yamm
Lovely food made from beautiful, local products. Great wine, friendly staff. Perfect last lunch to end 2019.
Always look forward to drive over from Canterbury even if it is just for the very best BACON SANDWICH 👌
Such a great place. True attention to the customers and the food. Love it!
Love everything about St John’s. It’s my favourite place in London to eat.
As always a wonderful experience. My favourite restaurant St. John and St. John bread and wine
Main attraction is the unusual menu which includes offal, game and other traditional british dishes. The menu is changed everyday based upon the fresh produce that was available. I looked at the menu when it was published that morning but by the time we arrived for lunch both of the dishes on the menu that i wanted to try had run out.and there was only one special on the board. The food was well cooked and presented and was very tasty. It was not particularly busy but service was slow and needed to be initiated by the customer.
deviled duck hearts were amazing and the eccles cake and cheese a perfectly executed standard
Every dish we ate was perfect. Couldn’t fault a thing.
Food is always the standout however the service lacked slightly which is a shame given the quality and price expectation of St John. Although a gin and tonic was ordered at the beginning on the meal, it never arrived, yet was part of the end bill. Overall an enjoyable dining experience despite this.
I've been coming here for years and I bought an American colleague for dinner the other night. The food was great as always and the service, attentive, friendly and kind. It's a solid, honest place with excellent food.
Busier then usual for a Sunday late lunch, excellent as always!!!
A lively place with a lot of charm, the original "Nose to Tail Eating" ethos of the Ferguson empire seems to have been diluted a little these days, but that's probably because many people just won't eat that kind of food. They don't know what they're missing! Nevertheless, there's just about enough on the menu for the devotees of offal, strong flavours, interesting ingredients and things you just have to pick up and eat with your fingers. Diners not in the mood for all that will also find dishes that won't threaten their serenity too much. For London it's not outrageously expensive.
We really enjoyed it!
We will be back for sure, when again in London ...
By 8pm all the daily specials were gone. The meal was just ok the individual items were not a cohesive mix. Wine was great but I was surprised the food was not. Worth trying for yourself
I love St John. I always bring my friends who are visiting London here, to get a taste of upmarket, local food with a modern twist. I love the ever changing seasonal menu, the head-to-toe ethos and the friendly service. It's comfortable and unpretentious, but high quality. Highly recommend.
Devilled kidneys for breakfast! Delicious
It was memorable & is definitely go again
Lovely, homely food, with the menu suiting the weather perfectly. Amazing service from our waitress, perfect balance of interaction and just leaving us to it. Left rolling out of the restaurant I was so full. Would come back!
Not much flavour on the food. Service average. Price high for overall experience.
Overall, disappointing. Most of what we had was fine, but far from amazing. One dish, Whipped cod was too salty. Service was friendly and efficient.
best meal of the year so far, and my companion and I will be returning shortly.
We had higher expectations. The Food was very good but nothing outstanding. The service was especially terrible in the beginning and became better as the night continued.
Excellent as always. This place is always 'interesting' as it allows you to experiment and give your palate some new choices. Don't be misled into thinking it's just meat and offal based as we had a delicious veggy alternative, so something for everyone. Just one slight complaint, it took ages for our main course to arrive although I think this might have been a miscommunication......but with a bit more communication (both ways) this could have been eliminated. Overall most enjoyable!
Everything was just very good and the madeleines were out of this world. Great friendly service.
We had a very nice evening at St Johns bread and wine. Perfect service, good food and a very good wine menu. Only problem was the seating which was close to the door, every time someone came in it was drafty and cold.
