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.

My veal was bland and the boiled veg it came with even blander, at £26 for three slices it really didn't do it for...more
A simple restaurant that provides classic flavors that's executed properly. Items will change with the season, so go with what's in season and fresh.
If you have a chance to buy some bread take some home with you.
I had the following:
1) Ox Heart, Picked Walnut & Watercress: the heart was a little tough but delivered a good flavor while the watercress was refreshing and cleansing.
