A classic even if its use as a pub is limited to only the last two or three decades. Convivial, the snug that sits opposite and looms over the bar is the place to get but all the pub's quarters are lovely. The St. Peter's beers are generally excellent too and it's a place full of atmosphere. The only quibble would be over how busy it gets but in summer, head indoors as people tend to spill out on to the pavement, leaving room inside.

Not as old as it appears and much of the interior only dates back to the 1990s. Pleasant enough though and the St Peters beers are O.K. I particularly liked the mild but the best wasn't to my taste. Normal London prices c.£4 a pint. Apparently can get very packed and the bar area is small, as is the pub. I went on a Monday afternoon so it wasn't too busy. Worth going to if in the area.

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.
