Lonely Planet review for St John
This London classic is wonderfully simple – its light bar and cafe area giving way to a surprisingly small dining room where ‘nose to tail eating’ is served up courtesy of celebrity chef Fergus Henderson. This was one of the places that launched Londoners on the quest to rediscover their culinary past, and it’s a place for anyone who wants an off-piste eating experience. Don’t miss the signature roast bone-marrow salad with parsley and follow it with one of the tasty daily specials – middlewhite, chard and mustard, for example, or pigeon, peas and bacon. The traditional British puddings are similarly superb.
