Nice authentic looking ale house that's a modern interpretation, even if the building itself is ancient.

Good beer Guide 2020 entry and here's the rub - easily the worst pint of a 6 pub crawl.

Its the only London outlet for St Peter's brewery. I'm assuming this was a one off, but I won't be rushing back.

Quaint small pub with a Dickensian feel to it though apparently it is all repro. The St.Peter's best is the most popular brew here apparently - which is quite surprising given that most tourists want something chilled. As mentioned previously, when it's busy outside the interior tends to be pretty quiet. Fairly handy for Farringdon station.

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.
