My local. Great fun, very friendly, always a good beer on. It gets cramped and busy after work, so come during the day if you’re on holiday in London and want a few quiet pints. Food is good too.
All the beers apart from one keg lager (Bitburger) and one bottled lager (Hirter Pils) are from St Peter’s by the way - but they do carry the full range in bottles, with up to five from the cask. I’m scoring this highly for selection as there isn’t another pub in the world that does so.
The comment below about the beers possibly being filtered is completely wrong by the way - real ale is served in this pub. They don’t use handpumps, they use a type of pump common in Scotland but rare in England. It’s called a Shakespeare system. Suffice to say, the beer is NOT served under gas pressure.

My favorite pub by far. Serves Tyrells and St. Peter’s from on draught, cask and bottle. It can’t get much better than that. Quite a nice space with friendly people and not many tourists, but it sure does get busy.
One of my favourite spots in London. The St Peters beers are always interesting - if not brilliant. Excellent atmosphere - always seems to be busy - great for small groups. Can also recommend the burgers - superb!
Wow! Really nice. This is one of the most beautiful places in London for me. Really ancient and characteristic. Really impressive the wolf watching you when you drink the beer! :D I’ll come back for sure the next time in London.
Very simple furniture, but cozy. Focus is on the most important: St. Peter’s beers. 12 taps and lots of bottled beers. Fruit Beer with grapefruit is highly recommended. Ca. 35 seats. Lunch is served 12-15. One of our favourites in London.
Love this place. Tucked away near Farringdon station is a real gem. Old-fashioned without being twee, popular without pushing out the locals, good value without being cheap. Can’t compete with some of the new craft beer pubs in terms of selection, but makes up for it by just being what it is.

One of the most enjoyable places to have a pint in the world. Yes, everything is faux ancient in here... but it still looks and feels f’ing cool. Get one of the St. Peter’s beers on cask, a bag of peanuts, and sit for a while with good company.
One of my very favourite pubs in the Farringdon area. Great selection of St Peter’s beers (usually 12-15 or so available between cask and bottle, including seasonal brews). Nice olde world feel although it does fill up very quickly in the evenings and it’s unfortunate that it’s not twice the size! Nice to stand outside in the summer though. Food when available has been great, no frills but very reasonably priced (think a burger on a paper plate). I love this place.
A splendid little pub with ales you won’t fiend anywhere else. Friendly staff, and office workers rub shoulders with beer pilgrims. Impressive selection of cask ales, and the rest of the range is bottled to drink on the premises or to take away.
