27th Jul 2007 - yes - it does feel olde worldy - but for me it seems too perfect and a fake - which of course it is. The novelty of low ceilings, cramped nooks, crowds and no room means that for me it isnt a place to stay and relax for long. Maybe out of hours it is better - I always get a bit claustrophobic and faux antiquity just doesnt do it for me.

19th Apr 2007 - This pub is a little gem. It's pretty small, so it can get rather crowded during busy times, but it has loads of charm and character. I really liked the honest, authentic old English pub feel here. I was also delighted to find a selection of St Peter's ales on draught. Lubbly jubbly!

Expect dusty floorboards and rustic little nooks and crannies.

22nd Aug 2005 - Quite a small pub that could make better use of the space they have available. There are lots of fruit beers served direct from the keg, if that's your thing then it's well worth a visit. The food menu has recently been upgraded from only baguettes to a full on range of food. Can get very busy. Recommended.

12th Nov 2004 - I quite like this quaint, little pub - when you go inside you almost feel like you've gone back in time.. were it not for the millions of besuited Clernkenwell office workers rammed into every corner. Still, nice place and worth a visit, just try avoiding peak hours !

21st Oct 2004 - Very cosy olde worlde place with good choice of beer (real ale etc if you like that sort of thing). Food has improved over the past year with a wider range of lunchtime snacks. Gets very busy at lunchtime and around 5ish due to it's teeny size so get there early.

14th Sep 2004 - I like this pub. It serves some excellent and interesting real ales and the old traditional building is a great place to drink them. Only issue is with how busy it gets at certain times of the day. Well worth a visit!

13th Sep 2004 - The Jerusalem suffers from its own success. It is a great little pub outside normal office drinking hours, but can be a night mare when its crowded. It's nice and traditional inside with plenty of wood, but it is a little pokey.

Beer selection is neary all real ale from the St Peter's Brewery, although you can get Bitberger which is nice (although not too cheap). The choice of beers changes with the season.

Facilities are pretty poor, but there's just no room for anything. Food looks ok and the portions are certainly big enough, if you can get a table.

A great place to go for a pint when everyone else is at work, expect to fight your way to the bar at other times.
