Jerusalem Tavern – Clerkenwell

I haven’t eaten here (yet!) but the Jerusalem Tavern deserves a mention in the Lardbutty index. I popped in here yesterday – about 6pm – while walking through Clerkenwell to Darbucka and it was packed, though it is a small venue.

It’s interestingly quaint – very battered and higgledy-piggledy – and the building dates from the 1720s, reputed to have been the site of an early city coffee shop. When you step through the heavy front door, it feels more like you’ve entered someone’s front room in an old house than a pub.

There’s a great range of real ales, brewed by St Peter’s Brewery, and an appealing menu. And, it’s a Time Out Critics Choice.
