Fergus Henderson and Trevor Gulliver opened St. John in October 1994. The former smokehouse, situated around the corner from London's Smithfields Market had fallen into serious disrepair since ham and bacon smoking ceased in 1976.If you visit St John you'll find the building pretty much as it was found. The walls have been painted white, they have installed a bar and a bakery in two of the chimneys and a kitchen, dining rooms and topped the bar with 20-foot high skylights.
