Just in case anyone was thinking of going here over the summer:
St. John will close from the end of June for a much needed programme of refurbishment and maintenance.
After fifteen years fairly intensive labour, our kitchen, bar, dining room and back of house areas need a little attention and a few upgrades and so over a six week period from June 27th, Smithfield will close following supper service on June 26th until Monday 18th August 2008.
St. John Bread and Wine will remain open for the duration of the works and our reservations desk will continue to operate as normal over the summer, as will online reservations for Spitalfields and for bookings following Smithfield’s re-opening.
We’re sincerely sorry for any inconvenience the summer closedown causes but are confident that visitors and diners to St. John will enjoy the improvements we make to the building which will lose none of the character of the past fifteen years.
If you have any concerns or questions relating to the summer closure at St. John, please contact us using the comments form only, you can find this at the bottom of the home page on the Smithfield website.
We’re greatly excited about the works to St. John and even more so about welcoming our friends and guests back in August.
Thank you and we wish you all a very fine summer indeed.
