St. John Bread and Wine


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.

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

This review is solely based off breakfast and service. We visited as part of a walking tour and had the bacon breakfast sandwich. It was amazing. The bacon was crisp and thick, the bread was dense, chewy and perfectly salted and the house made ketchup made it even better. We also had an apricot filled donut which was really great too. We liked the outside and texture of the donut but we were...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

Across the road from the Spitafield Markets, the former bank building stills maintains its old school institutional charm with high ceilings and white walls which serves as a bakery and restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The Old Spot Bacon sandwich at £6.30 is what dreams are made of - lightly grilled, thick bread made on site, rashers of juicy old spot bacon and a side of...more
