About 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.

A friend and I headed over here to fill a cream doughnut craving -- and ended up with a cheese and bread sampler and about 6 donuts between the two of us.

The cheese board had bleu, brie, Lancashire, and one other squidgy one (to use slang I've picked up recently) -- and came with an interesting cheddar-based sesame cracker and two slices of crusty raisin bread.

We also had doughnuts...more

I'm not sure what happened here, especially knowing how good the other St John restaurant is.

We arrived and were quickly seated but that's the last we saw of our waiter until I flagged him down and asked for him to take our order about half and hour later. He didn't talk us through the specials on the board and only when I enquired did eh point the board out. No one seemed to be in charge...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..

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
