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.

Roganic in Marylebone is a ‘let me take a moment to explain the menu’ kind of place featuring foraged ingredients. That said, it’s really very good.
Lyle’s is a grown-up but not stuffy British restaurant in Shoreditch. Come for lunch when you can order a la carte.
Lorne is a modern British restaurant that’s the single best reason for visiting in Victoria. The wines are great, and the smoked eel dish is great.
