This was one of the pubs strongly recommended that I visit while in London by wl0307 and RichLightweight. Its only recently that a couple of the St. Peter's beer have become available over here, so it was awesome to go to a pub that served all of their brews! Bitter, wheat, grape fruit, stout the list seemed endless and I gave it my best shot. What's not in tap is available in bottle. The bartender was very friendly and took the time to explain and answer any questions about the beers. The taps are on the wall and stick out of old wooden keg tops, but it is real ale that they're pouring. I was a little suspicious of the grape fruit since I'm not a huge fan of the fruit, but it definitely grew on my as I drank. I think it would probably be quite refreshing on a hot day. However, since it was cold and rainy when I was there, I moved on to other beers. I stopped in during the afternoon, which was fortunate since its a fairly small place and I would assume it gets quite crowded after work. I didn't have anything to eat, but the bartender was eating something that looked and smelled pretty damn good. I would definitely frequent this place if I lived there.

Visited on 5th March with a friend for the first time in 18 months. The beer seems to have improved, even upon the high standards I experienced last time. Mild was exquisite, very dry yet malty, whilst Organic Best Bitter was superb.
Weekdays after 9 are good - we found a seat after 5 mins or so.
This remains a very good pub to include on any Clerkenwell crawl, but not as the final one, due to a strict, hurried closing routine which includes opening the main door fully which allowed the chill of an early March evening into what had been quite a warm pub.
Do visit, beerwise this establisment is fully deserving of its Camra Good Beer Guide (GBG) status, and the prices - £2.60-2.80 are now in the "very reasonable" bracket for this part of London

This is perhaps the loveliest pub i have had the pleasure of drinking in...
the number one aspect is the atmosphere... Jerusalem Tavern is tiny ... three or four people can sit at the bar which is wedged in to this tiny townhouse... a few tables are scattered in the front and a few in the back... this cramped feel is good... it makes you feel like you are doing something different than the masses who are also cramped, but cramped in a mega pub... part of me feels like i just got back from sailing on the high sees plundering innocent merchants and i've staggered back into this dark seedy hangout... the other part of me is saying politely, "Bartender, I'd like another Suffolk Cyder please" while realizing that i've found the perfect oasis to the hub bub of busy London...
the beer is good and fresh, courtesy of St Peter's Brewery... the selection is lacking in other breweries.. but thats ok when there is such a good range of brews St Peters...
the joy for me and my fiancee though was the Suffolk Cyder... its excellent and i'm dieing to get some sent to me back in the states...
