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

Meh. Crowded as can be so the old-world charm kind of gets cancelled out. Not a huge selection but some unique ales. It's definitely a unique place but it's just kind of awkwardly shaped for how many people go there. Still, one of the most atmospheric pubs in London and you can drink in the adjacent alleyway and out front if you need some space. Not my fav but I would come back if I'm in the area. more

I just love this pub. Full of character, old and thankfully unmodernised. They have a great beer selection and importantly very reasonable prices. Despite the crowds I always get served quickly since the staff are attentive and keep the place humming along nicely. A favourite in the Clerkenwell area. more

An extremely cool little pub which makes you feel like you're drinking in the 1700s in a secret place no one knows about.

Unfortunately we were in a rush to get somewhere the evening we stopped in so we only had time for one pint, but the selection alone should give it 5 stars. more

Ohhh it's so small in here it makes me feel like I'm on the Northern Line during rush hour. The choices of brewed beers and ales may be good, but I just can't face coming in here after work. People spill into the street and road outside, which may be nice in the summer but not when it's so cold outside!

I have never seen it empty, though that would be nice. This place is tiny and super old.... more
