Chucs St Johns Wood.
Saturday 24 July. So, its 3pm on a Saturday and the restaurant is half empty both outside and inside but I am denied a table as ‘it is too busy to accept walk ins’ (I am not a walk in but a person!). The fact that all the empty tables were occupied by invisible people might have something to do with the fact that I was alone, female and non-white. I found a lovely restaurant with delicious food and where the staff were civilized, courteous and WELCOMING. I walked past at 4pm and only one table was occupied outside and it was half empty inside. There are lots of lovely restaurants in St Johns Wood so I suggest people bypass this pretentious new comer.

Notes just opened. I know them from their other locations in the West end and City for their excellent coffee and decent wines.
In St Johns Wood, we don't have anywhere like this for all day brunch. I had the mashed avocado and beetroot hummus.
The others had same and the English breakfast option. Excellent coffees of course. We will be dining here regularly!

St John's Wood High Street is a gem hidden away near Regent's Park. Surrounding area is of great interest too. Close to major bus routes and tube stations.

My wife and I stayed in St. John's Wood in January due to finding a recommended B&B there. Could not tell from the map how far out of the center part of London it was but it could not be a better location unless you want to be "in the middle of things". Safe, quiet and friendly area with easy access to and from all areas of London from the St. John's Wood tube station. Several pubs plus good, mid range restaurants are available in St. John's Wood.

St. John's Wood is a little village just 10 minutes from central London on the tube. It's green, family friendly with a great little village feel to it! There is a little high street with luxury shops and great restaurants. Regent's Park and Primrose Hill are a stone's throw away, both of which are lovely to wonder through in all seasons. A number of celebrties live in St. John's Wood, including Sir. Paul McCartney's house which is quite famous. Buses and tube access are both very good to central London or North. Swiss Cottage and Baker street are 5 minutes on the bus, where more shops, cinemas, restaurants are also omnipresent. It's a different view of London, but really enjoyable to visit and walk around admiring big houses and mansions. Hampstead higher North is also worth visiting, a lovely little village up on a hill, just next to Hampstead Heath. North London, amazing place!

PROS
* Quiet exclusive upper class neighborhood
* Location of Abbey Road Studios and the zebra crossing

CONS
* Private residential area

“I VISITED THIS PLACE”…
… To once shin walk on the zebra crossing at Abbey Road Studios (see my recent reviews of all of that). I walked to and from the St. John’s Wood tube station. It was quiet.

WAS IT WORTH THE COST?
It was free to walk there

WOULD “I VISIT THIS PLACE” AGAIN?
Sure, but not only or primarily to be at Abbey Road for a third time, but to visit St. John’s Wood Synagogue.

ADVICE
* Go if you want to see a nice upper class neighborhood
* Go through the neighborhood to get to Abbey Road Studios

A beautiful area for a walk if you're growing weary of the frenzy of London. The high street has wonderful shops and there are several excellent restaurants to stop for a glass of wine or a meal. Regent's Park is nearby, as is Little Venice.

St. John's Wood is a beautiful neighborhood in London. For the most part it is quiet, green, and lovely. I'll bet it is very expensive to live there, but it is a very peaceful place. And of course, Abbey Road Studios and Paul McCartney's house are popular attractions for Beatles fans.

With the high street recently being blessed with The Good Life Eatery and The Ivy Cafe, and the soon to open Sourtine restaurant, St Johns Wood is finally heading back to the wonderful area it was a few years back.
Panzers amazing Deli & restaurant and the newly opened fantastic GATE restaurant providing even more reason to live in this area! Sadly Richioux restaurant closed a couple of years back, but an up market bagel joint is due to take its place.

The Duke of York is one of the best pubs ever, and also has the best steaks we have ever tasted.

We need a couple of more nice cake/coffee shops, and maybe a nice wine bar/pub.
Apart from that, the location is perfect. Every time we travel and come back to St Johns Wood we are reassured that this is one of the nicest areas of London, if not the world.

Wide streets, occasional coffee bars amongst a wide variety of residential blocks of apartments of all architectural styles. Wonderful to walk around and enjoy the area
