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.
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.
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.
Very good looking traditional English pub. Some very cool seating throughout. If you like St Peter’s beers then this is the place for you. Selection is mainly St Peter’s beers with some real ciders on tap. Cool set up. Came here because I heard the food was top notch. Had the pork and apple sauce sandwich. Was solid but nothing amazing. Good value though and always willing to give you some tasters for nothing
A nice lil pub in london. Its nice since its "craft beer" in england. The place is packed out when folks get out of work.... but if you can land the top seat... there is a place with 3 seats above all else to watch everyone... its very intertaining. Not all beers come from Real Ale cask... some from bottles this is the bad side.
A very compact pub with tables squeezed in every nook and cranny. I prefer to visit mid afternoon as by the evening it is usually rammed! Only does beers from St Peters brewery, who are usually good. Bit of a London Institution.
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..
Nice atmosphere and THE place in London to try some St. Peters beer. I was looking forward to try the "To Cream Stout" cask conditioned. A good beer, but I have to face it; I am really not a big fan of St. Peters beers... (Visited February 15th 2013)

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, it’s got a woody, spare, no bullshit vibe to it that’s as basic and charming as many of the St. Peter’s 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.
