St John Bread and Wine takes the food at the legendary St John restaurant in Farringdon, and transfers it into an informal canteen-style dining room close to Spitalfields Market. The British food here is, as ever, excellent. The menu changes all the time, but literally everything is good, whether you’re a fan of nose-to-tail cooking or not. Don’t miss the freshly baked madeleines for afters, and you can grab their fantastic donuts to take away as well. It’s a good place for a casual small group dinner, or for long overdue catch ups, and they also serve what is arguably the best bacon sarnie in all of London.
