St John Bar & Restaurant Description

St John Bar & Restaurant is featured in these Guides:

Fergus Henderson and Trevor Gulliver opened St. John in October 1994.

The former smokehouse, situated around the corner from London's Smithfield Market had fallen in to serious disrepair since ham and bacon smoking ceased in 1967.

The Georgian building had been part townhouse, part smokehouse (this part having been built later over the townhouse gardens) and following it's abandonment had been used variously and in no particular order as squats, a greenhouse for harvesting bean sprouts, a Chinese beer store and the occasional rave.

The upper floors of the building, now the administration,

managerial and directors offices had been the headquarters of Marxism Today during the late 1960's.

If you visit St. John you'll find the building pretty much as it was found, architecturally speaking.

They've painted the walls white, installed a bar and a bakery in two of the chimneys and a kitchen, dining room and private room in the former packing rooms and topped the bar with 20 foot high skylights.

St. John serves lunch Monday to Friday from midday to 3.00 pm and supper Monday to Saturday from 6.00 pm to 11.00 pm.

The bar at St John is open from 11.00 am to 11.00 pm every weekday and from 6.00 pm to 11.00 pm on Saturdays.
