A friend recently told me that St. John Bread & Wine did the best bacon sandwich he had ever had. Now that I have tried it, I can confirm he is correct. It's also probably the most expensive bacon sandwich I've ever had at £6.90, but it's worth every penny. The bread is a soft sourdough, the bacon is thick and plentiful, and it's topped with home made tomato ketchup.

Old school country style British food with duck, quail, lamb, pork and sweetbreads on the menu.
Some dishes, notably the quail, were really good, others (ox heart) interesting, others, like the rabbit, a bit bland.

Nice, helpful waiter, warm ambiance and hands down the best Madeleines I've ever had.more

One of the pioneers of "Nose to Tail" dining, St. John Bread & Wine celebrates all things naturally edible.
The menu is exciting and ever-changing. And, if it can be foraged, found, or caught, you will see it pop on St. John's menu with style.
This restaurant has other iterations of itself scattered throughout London and all are set-up in a casual, laid-back fashion.
Great for both lunch...more
