St. John in Clerkenwell is the quintessential British restaurant in London and has been awarded a Michelin star for its achievement to put British food and rare cuts back onto the culinary map. Several chefs who have cooked at St. John’s have done very well for themselves, spreading the love for British cuisine throughout the country. Tom Pemberton, former head chef at St John’s, is one of them and has cooked at Hereford Road since its opening in 2007. He has followed the St John’s principle: weird and sometimes not all that appetising sounding (at least to the foreign ear) British dishes, unusual and often cheap cuts and a whole lot of offal.
