A true haven for meat lovers, this meat restaurant is a real London institution! People flock here for their no-nonsense nose-to-tail food, often evolving around offal and lesser known cuts of meat. Vegetarians beware, this is a proper meat temple!
I visited the kitchen at St John’s in my pies episode, and got to watch the chef at work.
They also have an amazing bakery under the train arches near Maltby street market, where you can find the best custard doughnuts in town. I wrote about that here.
