St John's TavernSlap bang in the middle of Junction Road sits the St John, one of the earliest, and best, gastropubs in North London. With its intimately lit, sumptuous main dining room and equally atmospheric bar, the St John is bohemian in the extreme and the perfect setting for a gastropub menu.

Flame grilled steak with béarnaise sauce, seasonal risottos, fish and chips regularly appear alongside more exotic and unfamiliar dishes.
The food at the St John is well thought out and originally structured, though the portions are a little on the small side for this reviewer. The wine list is equally comprehensive and impressive.

Clearly the St John has a great local reputation, the dining room is always busy and advance booking is a must (though you can always eat in the bar if there’s no space in the dining room). Definitely one of the best places to eat in Archway.
