(boy - London has a lot of these!)

Two diners - three courses plus drinks each - and only one whole mis-step in the lot.

However, their straightforward food, which is outlined in chalk on the blackboard, is definitely...more

I'm not normally in this neck of the woods but know the stretch of A1 pretty well as I have to crawl along it regularly in an attempt to get to the M1.

But St John's Tavern IS here and it's lovely (if you like gastropubs with menus written on...more
