Good beer, good service, very atmospheric and historic pub with a decent buzz in an area of London where being up yourself never goes out of fashion. It's busy but you can't criticise any business for being popular.

An early 18th century building with original features, this atmospheric place is a favourite location with film and television crews, and it's easy to see why. As other reviewers say, it is quite small and crowds routinely spill out on to the pavement at busy times. However, time it right, and you will find it pleasantly quiet, tucked away in a side street near Farringdon Station. The St Peter's beer range is extensive and well-kept. In my experience, the food has been quite limited, but then it is not a pub I would go to specifically to eat – this is primarily a drinkers' place, a role it performs extremely well.

A return to the Jerusalem after some time, but it's still just as comfy and atmospheric as ever. The cream stout was nice and satisfying.

The only criticism is that it’s a little on the small side! The St Peter’s beers are a mixed bag but that’s the sort of selection that a brewery should have. You can’t expect to like them all but if you like any at all this is the place to drink them. I was very fortunate on my visit; they had their Christmas Ale available. Excellent and, despite the 7% ABV it was not excessively priced. A gem.

Great pub which serves as the tap for St. Peter's brewery. Never had any problem with the staff, in fact all have been happy to answer questions about the beer and offer tastings before buying.

Food is reasonably pricey at £5 for a burgers, but this kind of "pop-up-burger-shop-in-a-pub-thing" are everywhere nowadays and you a fiver is par for the course. I had one and it was pretty good.

My only gripe is where the bar is placed. The Queue blocks the walkway and you end up having to knock people to get by. Maybe a reconfiguration of the space would open up the pub a bit?
