Externally and Internally the pub remains very much as it was, down to three St Peters beers but more craft keg options.

And now it has gone. St Peter's have walked and apparently it's going to become sort of gin and cocktail bar. BRILLIANT.

April 2015
Numerous revisits always find five St Peters on stillage (or is it top pressure…?), that often include a seasonal or special. Quality always good. Last visit, some Chilli and Garlic pitta chips plus my half came in at £2.80, not bad for EC1. Good service from the bar and there’s now free WiFi. Upped my mark to 9 as I always enjoy it here. Rated 9

November 2011
Such a fantastic range (both bottled and stillaged) of St Peters ales that it's difficult to know where to start or end. Darks, Milds, Bitters, Fruit...it's all here. The charming but cramped dark green painted wood and tiled interior isn't as ‘olde worlde’ as it's made out to be – apparently it was erected during Britpop and it’s showing its age a bit, some basic maintenance is needed in places where paint has been scraped off the walls and tables are creaking. Service is usually friendly and efficient and prices are sensible. Food is available - there were quail scotch eggs for £1.30 a go during my last visit. It gets ludicrously packed on Thursday and Friday evenings just after work and most drinkers spill out into the street. I've yet to have any beer that doesn't pass muster in my half-a-dozen or so visits. Well-worth a stop for some unusual beer on a weekday afternoon (it doesn't open on weekends). An excellent choice, even if the cramped interior leaves a bit to be desired. Rated 8
