Fergus Henderson’s original home of “Nose to Tail Eating” opened in a former smokehouse around the corner from Smithfield Market in 1994.Celebrating the finest of indigenous British produce and making the most of what is seasonally best whilst applying straight forward cooking techniques, St. John is now celebrated as one of the 50 Best Restaurants in the World and in 2009 was awarded its first Michelin Star.Nose to tail eating means that, where appropriate, every part of the animal should be put to good use in the kitchen and so along with Roast Beef and Lemon Sole, diners will find Rolled Pig’s Spleen, Kidneys and Ox Heart, Liver and Chitterlings as well as the Roast Bone Marrow & Parsley Salad, something of a ‘signature’ dish.

Having spent years supplying London’s top restaurants through their separate wine businesses, Joe Haynes and Benedict Butterworth have joined forces with Tom Hurst, who has worked at Brawn, The Marksman, Levan, and most recently as Head Chef at Lasdun, to launch the trio’s first restaurant together.Located in a Grade II listed building on Cloth Fair, Cloth Restaurant is part of a historic row of buildings in the City of London that survived the Great Fire of 1666. Down this atmospheric alley opposite St Bartholomew church, Cloth is taking over a double fronted corner site that’s beneath the former home of poet John Betjeman and next door to the two oldest residential buildings in London. Inside, low ceilings, wood floorboards with antique wall lights and artwork create a cosy, intimate atmosphere, while marble tables, long dark wood banquettes, antique crockery and cutlery will create the feel of a classic bistro.

There is history here, the site having served as a wine cellar for over 150 years, most recently as Oddbin’s fine wine store.During the day the vaults serve as our office, warehouse and tasting room, as well as shop where the general public can buy our wines. At night it becomes a beautiful, atmospheric, candle-lit wine bar.In the bar we charge £14 corkage on the retail price, except between 12 and 4pm where no corkage is charged. Our list is ever changing, not only showing wines that we import ourselves but also wines that we have tasted and are passionate for, supplied from fellow importers.

    The food at Apulia is amazing - delicious and high quality. The acoustics are very poor though and hard to hear my friend - really needs something done to dampen the noise levels.

    I was delighted by this little jewel around by Smithfield market . Saw it reviewed by Grace Dent recently and discovered it was open on Monday so reserved for a meal with my son and his wife before they returned to HK post their wedding last week. It didn’t disappoint. Everything was great and we had a lovely final evening together Thank you

    I met with friends for early drink and dinner. It was relatively busy but not overly. There was live music from a female singer which was right next to us but at a nice volume so not stopping our conversation. We had a very nice rose and a few small plates, which were all delicious and we all felt was plenty for us. It's not a cheap evening (£55 a head) but worth it for somewhere a bit different with a good atmosphere and very nice food and wine it
