Hunting for breakfast and found St John’s open - I’ve had dinner here. Deviled kidneys were a big draw for me - who cooks them at home? They were very lovely. Not too spicy; soft and juicy. Not enough toast though! Good coffee. Nice service.

Standing myself a pre-Christmas treat, I had an early evening dinner here. My starter of crispy pig's cheek salad was delicious, but the stand-out was the main of Tamworth faggots with swede - absolutely out of this world! I rounded things off with the Eccles...More

The reservation policy puzzled me a little. There did not seem a lot of choice of times, yet while we were there plenty of walk ins were accepted. The food was good - perhaps not as a adventurous as I remember (its a few years...More

It was my second time there. I live the food and the classic recipes. Everything is delicious and the ingredients are of the best quality. I had the rice pudding for dessert and it wasn’t the best choice as it is a heavy dessert after...More

A hip place with big windows and lots of light, this amazing restaurant is as good as ever. Quality of product, freshness, surprise...quite an achivement for a restaurant that has been a long time favourite.

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

Well, it is London... you can and should come as you are, really. But, make an effort. As you would when dining out. This place is casual though, not super-posh. And it is in East London, meaning, you probably wouldn't look... More
