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.

Incredible service, tasty, generous portions, great value. Great wine selection
If you love great service, a simple setting and sensational, yet simple food this is the place for you!
Perfect as always. Many visits over the years 1st time back since lockdown began and whilst keeping everyone safe and following guidelines a splendid lunch was had. Glorious food, wide and varied wine list to suit all tastes and budgets, friendly but respectful service. Faultless.
Would highly recommend
Great experience. Solid produce, incredible wine and drink selection, in a unique setting
St John had been on the list for such a long time and it fully lived up to expectations! Amazing food and service!
Lovely lunch, great restaurant.
We will be coming back !
Everything was perfect!
A fantastic experience. Both food and service were beyond our expectations and we would certainly visit again.
Outstanding as ever, excellent flavour in all the dishes we chosen, can’t wait to go back.
No pig on the menu a lot of fish I know it’s summer but for me it was a weird menu. Had tripe but for me it’s an institution for specific reasons it’s mot a dish restaurant
We came with high expectations and wanting to splash out on something exceptional. I can honestly say that it was underwhelming, the food was average, lacking in presentation but also flavour. We left feeling quite ripped off and deceived by the name and reputation. If you want to go for a special dining experience then your money is better spent elsewhere.
Great quality delicious food in a beautiful space. Staff were knowledgeable friendly and efficient.
Stunning. Big expectations and they were completely met if not exceeded
Been going to St. John for over 20 years and the atmosphere, food and service are always amazing.
Delicious and such a down to earth but memorable experience.
Fantastic food, great friendly staff and a clear commitment to being unpretentious while still providing a fantastic dining experience.
It’s never less than sublime when dining at St.John.
It’s just the perfect place to go for a special occasion.
I adore here and have loved coming back to revisit what is now one of my top 5 London restaurants.
classic , refined excellence.
Decent portions served by pleasant engaging staff.... cleanliness superb ...
An offal lovers paradise .....
Fabulous for any occasion...
Can't wait to return ...
Good food, helpful staff, reasonably priced wine but to be honest not a great ambience.
Great atmosphere & service. Food is that golden mix of souls food and fine dining. My favourite place to eat and drink in London.
The food was delicious as always. I love the Welsh rarebit every time. Devilled kidneys on toast were a real highlight!
Wedding anniversary gift from kids
Been many years since I was last at St John. It was a joy to be back. Delicious food, great service and ambiance
Incredible food. Service was first class.
Chose St. John for a date. Both of us loved the food and the quirky ex warehouse atmosphere
Outstanding food, great wine and amazing service ! We'll be back soon.
Had quite high expectation and booked it for my birthday. Bone marrow was good as expected but the daily special tripe and cold middle white were mediocre. Looking back on the great reviews I can only hope everyone had an off day after the Euro finals.
Slow service, very average food which was overpriced for the cost. Incredibly fatty lamb, overcooked vegetables.
Food was uncomplicated but incredibly well prepared and tasted great.
I'll be back...
Wonderful as ever to be back at St John. Eel and Tongue specials were excellent.
Must say, one of the greatest dining experiences of my life. Food was incredible, staff was helpful and knowledgable, and the ambiance percentile fit the food
Outstanding! The food was just fantastic and the service 10/10. Probably the best restaurant in London, highly recommended for foodies.
Remarkable meal. Somehow the food is like nothing I’ve ever tasted, and at the same time, it felt like it related to me. It was as if it was the food I ate as a child or something. Like something I had forgotten.
Amazing food and entertainment. All the staff was really nice and helpful.
Another great meal at St John! highly recommended
Blown away. Outstanding food, delicious wines and superb service. Can't wait to visit again
Wonderful food, drink and service. Couldn't have asked for more.
We had a brilliant lunch at St John. Each dish was so special. Service was great and the dining rooms are understated and beautiful. Can’t wait to return for a dinner.
Amazing as always - a real foodie’s paradise. Never had a bad meal here.
