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.

I had dinner at St. John Bread & Wine in Spitalfields and it was very lovely. The restaurant has a very classy and elegant feel. The service was a little bit slow but polite and nice non the less - nothing to rave about, but good. I don't eat meat at the moment so I ordered the Mackerel.

I had been dying to go here after the couple that started this business produced some recipes for Bon Appetit (many of which I've made around holidays).

The restaurant itself is incredibly simple. Wooden tables, wooden chairs, simple glasses and dishware. The food speaks for itself.
