Very pleasant visit on a warm (for London) late summer afternoon. This place is older than dirt for an American like me, but far from the oldest joint in the city. Still, itís got a woody, spare, no bullshit vibe to it thatís as basic and charming as many of the St. Peterís beers. Mid-afternoon, sparsely attended, so I was able to have a lengthy, expansive conversation with the excellent bartender. Solid offerings, well priced, consider this a priority on your way to Craft.

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).

One of the best pub for eating especially if you think about the quality / price ... The burger is simply amazing and huge ... 6 st peters poured directly from fake casks behind the bar ... Very nice place that used to be a coffee shop .. Central location near farringdon ... The guys of the staff are friendly enough and helpful .. Good place

Visited for the first and probably the last time on a damp Monday lunchtime in July 2008. Maybe the weather, day and time was all wrong, but this bar didnít ífloat my boatí at all.
Only two other customers on our arrival, two more couples arrived as I drank a warm pint of bitter.
The barman didnít want to talk or listen, even though the place was clearly not busy. He poured the beer OK, but wasnít interested in the pleasantries of the day.
Grubby fake walls, pretend aged wood and floors donít do it for me. I prefer the real thing. My wife even questioned why we had made the effort to find the place. She loves St Peters beers and we have visited the brewery and Old Hall many times, this place however didnít live up to its billing.

Molto accogliente líambiente e molto, molto cordiali i ragazzi al banco. In questo tipico pub londinese potrete assaggiare líintera gamma delle birre di St. Peters, ma davvero poco di altro. Non posso valutare il cibo ma ho potuto assaggiare uníottima ST. Peters Mild spillata dal Cask che rimarrŗ a lungo nella mia memoria.

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.

Small pub in historic farringdon. Not much of a big choice. Moslty St peters beers but they are all very fresh. If you want to enjoy a cask ale this is great little place.

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.

2010-08. Visited on a slow Wednesday afternoon last July, it had a bit of a Western saloon or schoolhouse feel to it with old wooden slat floors and rickety staircase and a mirror behind the bar. Beer selection is lots of St Peterís, in pretty good shape. Service was friendly. Lunch was marvelous: we tried a brie and roasted red pepper sandwich and a pork and apple sandwich. Might return for the food but it was a little out of the way in our travels. (5/9/9/9/9/14) 74%

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.
