  • On the face of it, let alone in a "budget eats" feature, 5.70 seems an awful lot to pay for a bacon butty. But the St John bacon butty is indisputably worth every one of those 570 pennies...
  • The bread is excellent and free. Get on it.
  • Bread is superb. Service is polite, relaxed yet informative. Not expensive considering price. Definitely recommend.
  • One of the best restaurants in London. Excels at traditional British food. Lovely wine selection all pairs very nicely with the dishes. I love the roasted marrow here.
  • The best bacon sarnie you'll ever eat.
  • The menu here is arranged in time-of-day order and beside 11am you'll find "Seed cake and a glass of Madeira" (6.80). This combination is a particular favourite of chef-proprietor Fergus Henderson.
  • Have Bacon sandwich for breakfast, best in London by a mile!
  • Foie gras toast! Delicious!
  • Excellent bread and bacon sandwich.
  • Typical english meals. Great variety of choices. Just be curious and taste it !
  • Custard filled doughnut tasted OK.the dough itself was great but I didn't like the texture of the filling
  • More casual and easier to get a reservation than the main location. Food is just as good though. Don't forget to order the blood cake.
  • Amazing crispy pork skin
  • "How good can a bacon sandwich really be?", I wondered, expecting to be somewhat underwhelmed. Incredibly good apparently
  • The foie gras on toast and the freshly baked Madelines are an absolute must!
  • menu changes but smoked and pickled things are always great. get the chocolate cake with caramel ice cream for dessert. i always get a loaf of their fabulous bread to take away.
  • if you are looking for some very good quality food, a cosy, intimate special atmosphere go to St John. everything is beautifully made- 'with love and care'-simple and exceptional at the same time
  • House red is great. All the food weas fab!
  • Had my 30th birthday dinner there with my girlfriend and it was great! Amazing food! Great staff! Overall chill place!
  • Get the bone marrow appetiser!! All of the mains are delicious because they use seasonal ingredients. Also don't skip dessert!! The nectarine and almond tart was the best I've ever had
