St John just opened a pop-up bakery at Old Street tube station

Tom Howells

Whoah now: for the next three weeks, awesome bakery (and offshoot of meaty nose-to-tail pioneer St JohnSt John Bread & Wine will be popping up at Old Street tube station. The bread-centric stall will be selling SJ’s super sourdough, outstanding doughnuts (the custard version is a stone-cold classic) and other pastry-based titbits from 7am-7pm daily until March 2.

Fergus Henderson and Trevor Gulliver’s clattery Farringdon space is perhaps the definitive British restaurant (in London or otherwise) and its bakery offshoots (Bread & Wine in Spitalfields and a dedicated unit on Bermondsey’s Druid Street) have done for bread and doughnuts what their original joint did for offal and gutsy seasonal cookery. In short: stop reading, get to Old Street, get stuffed. 

Nuts for ’nuts? Here are some more awesome doughnuts for you.
