London's best 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 Peterson’s Brewery all help to make this what some might call ‘a proper pub’.
Our pick of London pubs with open fires
Having initially squeezed this out of the top ten, on second thoughts let’s 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.
With its prime location in Clerkenwellit’s little wonder the after work crowd spills out onto the pavements after 5pm. The beer is from St. Peter’s Brewery in Suffolk and there’s a delectable, meat-heavy menu with produce from local farmers.
