Pub in an 18th century building
The Jerusalem Tavern has occupied a number of different sites across London since it was founded in 1140 but, these days, can be found operating in Clerkenwell.
While the building itself is aged and perfectly shabby in places with a roaring open fire, it offers modern fare from the PieMinster pies available at lunch, to the British ales available to take home in small kegs. All beer here hails from the St Peter’s brewery in Norfolk.
Cabinets filled with old taxidermy makes for conversation over a great selection of bar snacks. This pub is small but cosily formed. Often very busy, you’ll be lucky to find a seat but this just adds to the bustling atmosphere, overspilling into the street and side passage in the evening. A lively and lovely place to grab a drink after work.
