    The pub is very nice but you have to try the restaurant at the back - the wine list is great, the service is exceptional and the food is sensational! A real gem in gastro pub loaded North London.

    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

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

    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!

    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.

    Great food, one of THE best food pubs around here if not in fact the best, and there is loads of competition. Check it out.

    Excellent pub/tavern, great selection of ales, lagers and ciders on tap, and great if somewhat pricey food to boot! Read more

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

    Great food, somewhat busy at times, and can fill up with families, but a pleasant, high end gastropub.

    Try the Oysters - They taste absolutely delicious. Add salt, pepper, lemon & shallots/red wine vinegar dressing!

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

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