2 good reasons to come to the Jerusalem - number one to soak up the atmosphere of this crumbling old pub which dates back to around 1720 secondly to rate St Peters beers that you wouldnít ordinarily see in the supermarkets.
This place, less than 5 minutes walk from Farringdon tube, is pretty small and you can seat around 40 people and maybe fit another 15 or so in standing in around the bar and by the stairs to the toilet. Get here after 5/5.15pm on most evenings and you will struggle to grab a seat.
Service was attentive and prompt on my most recent visit (29th Oct í12).

A pleasant boozer with friendly, colourful locals hanging around at the bar. I event met a ticker there. The taps are restricted to St Peters but I didnít mind as I havenít tried any of these. The beers are average though. The bar chick was really friendly and I had a great time chillin out at the bar. Worth a look I reckon.

A lovely tiny pub with all the currently available St. Peterís on offer, including 5 from the cask and frankly, they seem much better than from the bottle. A very popular join with 3 times more people standing outside than those having a seat inside. Rather slow service, but simply overwhelmed and not having enough room to have more staff. A nice building, well orchestrated operation.

Like no other pub in London. The interior is very plain, all exposed, unpainted wood. Slightly cramped with a small bar, this is not a place for big crowds. Thankfully there are some nice wooden benches outside. The range tends to include the general St. Peters offerings, but on occasion they will have a less generic beer. Prices are good. Definitely worth visiting.

Good old fashioned pub near Farringdon Underground Station. Mostly St Peters beers, the staff were absolute gems in helping us select, full marks for the young lady on last night. Good comfortable bench seats with a great bench table, the pub was less busy than the others we visited in the area. Another decent pub that shuts at weekends, so infrequent visits, but we would go back.

The old style sawdust on the floor pub (no sawdust though.) Itís well worn. Definitely a local. Friendly service. Lots of locals drop by to use the loo. About five St. Peters were on. Near St. Johnís Gate which is worth a look (Knights of St. John - priory nearby)

Small, rather cramped feeling though nice atmosphere. Lots of Saint Peters on tap and in the bottle, which is fun. Decent place where I would like to return with a group and try all the bottles.

I visited twice in the last couple of days. This bar is very unassuming from the outside, you could almost mistake it for a cafe. It is fairly small inside, with a quirky rustic-style interior. They have the full St Peters selection of brews on offer. The beer was in good condition. You can take away min-kegs and gift boxes with beer and glasses. We didnít have food, but what we saw looked great. A very pleasant place to spend the afternoon. An essential stop in a London pub crawl.

Furnished and decorated in idiosyncratic style. Lots of bare wood, rickety chairs and a sort of mediaeval vibe. Small and cosy. Owned by St Peters Brewery and the only place in London where you can rely on getting their beers on cask (even if they are served through a fake barrel type set up), plus all the bottles. Which ones they have on tap varies, but its usually four or five. Go mid afternoon. Once the office workers appear, cosy swiftly becomes claustrophobic and youíll most likely find yourself standing in the road. The two tables outside donít really qualify as a patio. Despite the listing here, I think its closed on Saturday.

Visited a couple of times. Cosy pub, with a nice relaxing atmosphere. Few beers on tap and a bottle selection as well, mainly St Peters beer. Friendly service minded staff. For sure worth a visit if in the area..
