This wins the prize for most interesting chef proprietor and food! If you don't like offal, you might be put off, but in these times of waste not want not, and for people that do enjoy crunching their way through every imaginable part of an animal, a visit to London would be crowned by a meal here. Set in what was once a smokehouse / townhouse, in beautiful and historic Clerkenwell, the menu will definitely keep you talking long after you've hung up your napkin. St John's has often been credited with rethinking British food, it's part comfort food, part new / strange taste experience, rolled into a very successful package. Peruse for example, sausages and snails, chitterlings and dandelion greens, mutton and turnips, roast suckling pig, or pigeon and trotter pie. Before you judge, sample the kitchen's skill, and your tastes may just change for good. Other diners' already have. TUBE: Farringdon
