The Jerusalem Tavern is best for...

Traditional Pubs
Not half as old as it looks, The Jerusalem Tavern is a relatively modern take on the traditional pub. However, it does such a good job at appropriating all the best things from authentic boozers that everybody loves it. Everybody! Rickety wood and glass partitions, radio silence, hearty food and ales from the Petersonís Brewery all help to make this what some might call Ďa proper pubí.

Pubs with open fires
Having initially squeezed this out of the top ten, on second thoughts letís just include the beautiful Jerusalem Tavern after all. The rickety, wooden pub revels in the warmth of its open fire. We could settle down here in front of the flames and work through the large array of beers for a whole weekend.

Bestowed with plaudits and awards and the owner of one of the best all wooden interiors in London, the Jerusalem Tavern is a bit of a classic.

The building dates back to the 18th century but only took shape as a pub much later, and much of the originality remains. The shop front was apparently added later then the interior but its varnished brown blends well with the dyed green of the wood inside. Long tables fill the entrance room and thereís a small collection in the bar area topped by a sweet mezzanine for two at the top of its own miniature staircase overlooking the pub.

The crowd is all architects and lawyers and if you want the chance to see it without them then avoid the after-work rush at all costs when people are forced onto the pavement outside.

The beers come from St. Peterís Brewery in Sussex, so you wonít find recognisable brands, instead an upmarket Samuel Smith affair. Best Bitter, Honey Porter, Golden Ale and Cream Stout are delivered on draught from decorative barrels and there are more by the bottle. Itís an ale drinkers dream with the staff knowledgeable about the breweryís produce.

Food is modern European and youíll need to book to guarantee a table. Expect pan-fried duck, gourmet sausages and fresh local meats.

Well run and definitely worth making the trip.
