St John - Smithfield

26 St John Street, London, London, EC1M 4AY
An excellent restaurant, serving now rarely found traditional British dishes, prepared to a very high standard. It's located in a converted Smithfield smokehouse - the entrance leading into an informal bar and bakery; with the whitewashed dining room, with its paper-clothed tables - to the rear.

The menu changes a little each day, but expect to find the likes of 'Snails, Sausages and Horseradish'; 'Pig's Cheek and Butter Bean Broth'; 'Lamb Broth'; 'Crisp Pig's Ear and Dandelion Salad' or 'Mussels with Leeks and Celeriac' among the starters.

Maybe 'Lambs' Tongues, Turnips and Mustard'; 'Hare Saddle & Lentils'; 'Kedgeree'; 'Ox Tongue with Lentils' or 'Fillet of Brill with Tartare Sauce' to follow.

Desserts might include ' Syllabub with Shortbread Fingers'; Eccles Cake and Lancashire Cheese' and 'Ginger Loaf or Bread Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce' - but like all the menu, everything is seasonal.

Friendly and knowledgeable service.
