I visited at the start of after works drinks. As I approached, I...more

I'm starting to get really confused about what is genuinely really old and what is hipster, you tend to find that hipster pubs install old furniture to increase their authenticity. I can 100% confirm that the Jerusalem Tavern is genuinely really old. Here's the ways you can tell; firstly they have original tiles on the wall that no matter how hip or quirky you were you couldn't replicate....more
