Everything you’ll eat here will be near-perfect, unfussy celebrations of good food, with emphasis on the underused and the overlooked. Interesting wines are available by the glass at uncynical prices…

We dotted a few of the classics amongst our order, including roasted bone marrow and Eccles cake with Lancashire cheese. Perfect. Whilst eating them, there was not a dish in the world that I would rather have had…

My ox heart is quite interesting. Who, pre St John, offered heart, other than butchers in the dog food section? The slightly rubbery meat is so thin it could be kebab and is surprisingly light…

St John’s signature dish is still roast bone marrow and parsley salad (£6.60), still terrific. (…) It’s a much clearer hit than you ever get from the bits of marrow in osso bucco — just the perfection of flavoursome unctuosity…

I have eaten some of my favourite meals at St John, including a whole suckling pig between 15 of us. (…) That’s the thing about truly great restaurants. They give you memories. And that’s what St John does for me…
