    Reliable, consistent, reasonably priced - St John's is one of the best kept secrets in London. Come hungry!

    The pickled whelks were my highlight in this evening of great food, wine, service and atmosphere at the restaurant behind the pub.

    Excellent food, lovely place but sometimes I find the staff a little offish and it takes over 40 mins per course to arrive.. Still worth a visit

    Breaded pollock and chips is delicious, so is the pheasant - avoid the breaded halloumi as it's just huge chunks of cheese with no sauce!

    Try the rump steak: cooked as asked, comes with two different kinds of mustard, horseradish, roast tomato and chips. Very generous portion, too.

    The scallops here are brilliantly tasty. Don't bother with the snails though. The portion is too small to leave any kind of an impression.

    Food crap. Turn up at 6pm and you get a mutton pasty if you are lucky. Go elsewhere

    Less conventional menu, worth to try: Dorset snails, pigs head, ox tongue. Don't expect quantity though.
