This was my second visit to the Jerusalem Tavern and for some reason I thought it would be really hard to find. It really isn’t – two streets away from Farringdon tube (or in my case a short walk from Clerkenwell Green cycle hire point) it’s very easy to find. It’s quite a strange pub – not much in the way of seating inside and the casks of St Peter’s beer brought in from Suffolk are dispensed through taps in the wall rather than the bar.
First pint of the St Peter’s mild was a bit flat, though pleasant enough to taste. I then moved onto a bottle of the Honey Porter which was very nice (and will be… the subject of another blog post). Alice, who had some along for a bit of a chat, started on a fruit bitter that wasn’t great, swapped to the cider and but was very disappointed not to have the Honey Porter!
It’s a nice summer pub – though I can imagine come winter when the rain sets in it would be hard work finding somewhere to stand and to get yourself to the bar…
I would have more photos of the inside, however having swapped lenses on my SLR and utterly failed to practice at home (or even take a single shot) I didn’t realise how hard it would be to use! There are more photos on flickr but mostly close ups of stuff.
