Bread & Wine opened in 2003 as a new home for our bakery and a more informal manner of dining than the first St. John Restaurant in Smithfield. Breakfast and lunch are served seven days a week and supper from Monday to Saturday. The menu, celebrating indigenous, seasonal ingredients changes as the day rolls on and diners can either order a three course meal or share a number of dishes from the courses on offer. As well as selling goods to take home from our bakery, wines by the bottle or the case can be bought from our lists to take home with some delivery available. Bread & Wine has been voted Best British Restaurant by the Evening Standard and named as best value restaurant by The Observer Food Monthly.

Beautiful breakfasts and always something interesting on the lunch menu. Nice atmosphere, not pretentious, just great British food.more
Mmm.. we do have some issues with the food here.
Yes, you will eat some "strange" things. Well, I lived in Asia for a long time, I ate spiders, grasshoppers, boar's ears, dog testicles, therefore a pig head or a pigeon are not that strange for me, I cooked both of them in my house..
I went on a monday night. Went with a friend, the Maître de salle asked for a reservation and then allowed us...more
The food presented at St John was wonderful. As Alex's review points out, it's the place to come to dine on unusual eats and cuts (although we were lacking an actual hogs head). Our table was adorned with the likes of a whole crab (ready to be cracked), foie gras, a whole fish ready to be filleted and de-boned, cuttle fish in its ink, duck ham, black pudding, and a final course of desserts...more
What a pleasant night we had at St Johns last night! I'd heard good things from my wife about it being a real foodie destination and upon arrival we were greeted by an enthusiastic waitress who had an incredible knowledge of all the dishes on offer!
What St Johns serves is basically gourmet British dishes served in a tapas style where all the dishes are brought out when ready and are perfect...more
Probably the fanciest food I've ever eaten. And really affordable.
Mussels were the best I had in my life.
Foie grass and madeleines were also amazing.
This was for lunch, I'll try to have breakfast once.more
