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.
Excellent as always though I think the servers were a bit puzzled by my friends Northern sense of humor!
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.
I have been eating at St Johns restaurants since the late 90s ( and drinking ) . I have alway loved everything about St Johns and the food is always great .
My recent visit was no exception although i didnt recognise any of the staff ...which is a first for me.
The only criticismt i have is the closing Rope Walk ...which was so so special ..why did you do that ?
Anyway dont ever change what you do and as a Spanish friend of mine said recently " St Johns is a very necessary restaurant " ...and i agree !
Love john ebden
Great modern vibe. Excellent food using essential ingredients to bring out maximum flavor, on par with St John Restaurant. Lunch time, pleasantly quiet and a good value. Service and staff disengaged and couldn't care less.
Level dishes unequal to the price. Medium Wines. Very expensive.
Generally really impressive. Everything tasted great.
Great food. Excellent service. A place to visit for a special occasion.
Nous étions déjà venus 2 fois dans votre restaurant avec de belles découvertes culinaires
Si les entrées étaient correctes mais sans surprise...il en va autrement des plats
le porc n'était pas cuit et et le plat était froid...Nous avons du le renvoyer !
et la plie et sa sauce tartare ...très cher pour une simple plie et une délicieuse sauce tartare
Nous avions recommandé votre restaurant à de nombreux amis mais cette fois nous sommes très déçu
Equipe en salle souriante et efficace
Great wine and good food as usual, but the menu was unusually bland this weekend. No game!
We really enjoyed our experience at St. John Bread and Wine. Some exceptional dishes include the sourdough that came in the beginning, the smoked mackerel, and the ox tail. Other dishes were delicious but a tad too salty, but overall we really enjoyed our meal. The service was also excellent.
Waitress was rude. Food was okay but the main dish was cold.
Great food if you like nose to tail eating. Expensive but worth it for the quality. Lamb tongue FTW
Always really good food and service , in a relaxed but vibrant atmosphere. The changing menu means there is always something new, but the favorites remain.
Amazing food. Conservative seating plan
I would recommend for the food as it is so unlike any other London restaurant the plates were very well executed but the service was below average and very disappointing for the price you pay and the reputation- although staff were polite and friendly, we were waiting a long time for the main and completely forgotten about afterwards. We ended up waiting more than 40 minutes or so to pay before anyone had come over. Not really service I would expect when you’re paying £100 or so for 2 people.
Delicious food and wine. It was an empty day in the restaurant so the vibe was subdued but actually perfect for us to have a proper conversation without shouting!
Great food great time
Third time at this one - fantastic food as ever. Always impressed by the variation on the menu. It was fairly quiet for lunch and we weren’t rushed at all. We ended up getting about three small dishes, a whole crab and a grilled mackerel between four which was a good amount for us.
Overall a really disappointing experience unfortunately. I had wanted to dine at St. John’s for some time and finally found an excuse to visit. No tables left at main restaurant so settled for Bread and Wine. Wish I hadn’t! The starters were of good quality (devilled kidneys!!) but the mains were a massive let down. We initially received the wrong order and had to wait an additional 20 minutes. The duck had only been seared skin side so was completely raw. The goat was 3/4 fat and overpowered by aioli that had turned to mush in the gravy. Nearly shattered my teeth on a prune stone left in the dish. Service overall was slow and disengaging. On the plus, good quality and varied wine selection. I believe St. John’s has a Michelin star but based on our experience I don’t think it’s worthy considering the quality of other great restaurants in London with one.
Unique take on farm-to-table British food -- rigorous in concept yet wonderful to eat. Solicitous service, beautiful room.
Excellent food, wine and a great atmosphere. Really pleased with our evening
Really great place near Spitafelds! Highly recommend especially to those visiting nearby.
I love this place. It's a local gem, very good food that can be shared and a great wine bar. It's not exactly intimate with a large room and lots of tables, but I find it refreshing, modern, cool and friendly and the Eccles Cakes are to die for.
Amazing dining experience. We had a ball! Your staff were absolutely fantastic at making us feel at home and at ease. Thank you
Server Philip was great
We were with family for Xmas, 4 adults and three young adults. The restaurant exceeded all expectations. The Pheasant and Trotter Pie, Roasted Marrow Bone and Marrowwhite were all fantastic! We will be back!
great food, friendly and easy ospitality, british atmsphere. def a nice place to eat or drink a glass of wine. bread is delicious.
Really delicious, inventive food presented beautifully. The flavors were unique and rich. Incredible wine list. A can’t miss!
Had a lovely time at St. John Bread and Wine - a bit of a bucket list place for me - made more special by how everything lived up to my expectations - thanks!
Excellent service over a very long lunch for 4. Sharing dishes worked well, although the portion sizes vary a lot, so we should have ordered 2 of some. Everyone's favourite dish was the smoked cods roe. Hard to pick a runner up, but perhaps a tie between the Ox tail and ducks hearts.
Atmosphere was very lively and buzzing.
Been coming here for over 10 years, whenever I come to London I always drop by. Great variety of special and seasonal food with flavour. nothing pretentious. A real foody place.
The food was phenomenal and our waiter wa soutstanding. We ate everything he recommended and it was sublime. Thank you for a delicious night!
I went with a friend for dinner. We had a mixture of the main dishes (we have big appetites). The trotter and sausage casserole and mackerel were good. Nice ambience and good service.
The food served was great. We had the herring which was really fresh, served with mash potatoes - the mash was to die for.
Of course for dessert, we had the madeleines. Amazing!
amazing seasonal food with a great wine list. an very kind stuff
Simple ingredients inventive delicious food
Been coming to St John Smithfield and Spitalfield for years and still our favourite restaurant!!
It was a lovely evening, all my guests really enjoyed the meal and the Madeira was delicious with dessert.
Excellent service and food as always! Thanks team!
The food was exquisite.
I look forward to coming back again soon!
