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 into 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 its 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 our 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.

We'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.

Our baking operations moved from Smithfield to Spitalfields in 2003 when we opened St. John Bread and Wine though we still sell our breads and other baked goods at St. John and at the occasional farmer's market and food festival, details of which can be found on our news page as they occur.

For more on our bakery, wine shop and restaurant in E1 click on the Spitalfields link in the menu bar.
