The Artisan of Clerkenwell


A little homely comfort in a hidden corner of Clerkenwell’s St John’s Square, The Artisan of Clerkenwell is a pub serving excellent, restaurant-quality food. With exposed ducting and other industrial elements, The Artisan has a loft-like feel made cosy and welcoming with smart lighting, comfortable vintage styled seating and carefully considered decorative elements. From the main bar to the intimate but relaxed dining area to the glorious terrace overlooking the square, The Artisan is full of personality and chilled out charm. The team here are serious about their food and drink, offering delectable boutique wines, hand-picked beers and award winning ales alongside a menu of locally inspired ‘tapas’ dishes made with creativity and care, featuring numerous heritage dishes and home-spun ingredients for that personal touch and proudly British flavour.
