Food Review: A Hidden Treasure In St John’s Wood

The Clifton


After almost walking straight past The Clifton on a quiet residential street in St John’s Wood, this newly renovated contemporary pub had us oohing and aahing at the finely stocked bar, chic open dining room, vintage sofas by a picturesque fireplace (which we now want in our home), and beautifully light conservatory where we snagged our table.

The brunch menu is full of your favourites to suit meat lovers and vegetarians. The fluffy waffle with smoked streaky bacon, fried duck eggs and maple syrup with an extra side of sausage was a sumptuous mix of sweet and savoury, and the huge portion really set us up for the day. The fresh avocado and poached eggs on toast had a light chilli kick and perfectly runny yolk. Now we’ve found it, we’ll be back in a heartbeat; get in quick before the masses discover it.

The Clifton, 96 Clifton Hill, NW8 0JT.
