St. John Bakery is running a three week pop up in Old Street tube station
Fergus Henderson and Trevor Gulliver’s iconic British restaurant St John is running a three-week pop up bakery in Old Street tube station this month.

The group is working in partnership with Appear Here, operator of the station’s numerous spaces, to serve pastries, breads and doughnuts from 7am until 7pm.

Commuters will be able to buy loaves of the sourdough served in St John’s three restaurants, as well as the famous doughnuts available at its south London bakery.

St John was opened by Henderson and Gulliver in Smithfield in 1994, and has played a big role in redefining British cuisine with its nose-to-tail approach to cooking.

The original Smithfield restaurant won a Michelin star in 2009, which it has retained ever since, for traditional dishes such as pressed pig’s ear & chicory, pickled tripe, radishes and watercress; and smoked cod's roe on toast .

In 2003 the Henderson and Gulliver opened St John Bread and Wine in Shoreditch, which served small plates and glasses of wine to customers collecting loaves. The group’s bakery operation has since outgrown the site, and has moved to Bermondsey.

In recognition of Henderson’s contribution to the culinary world and introduction of the nose-to-tail cooking approach, he was given The Diners Club Lifetime Achievement Award as part of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards.

The brand now operates three restaurants, a bakery, a winery and a wine company.
