The Artisan of Clerkenwell Pub


In the heart of Clerkenwell nestled in the corner of St John's Square London, sits a little bit of homely comfort.  Welcome to The Artisan, where we endeavour to help you escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We surround you in comfort so you can truly kick back and relax.... Our aim is to take the pressure off so you can enjoy a comfortable working lunch, the perfect lazy afternoon or a great night out with friends...


Mixing the retro with the classic in a modern surround, The Artisan gives an interesting new twist on the traditional British Pub.  We have an informal restaurant, a relaxed bar area & several chilled lounges, perfect for chilling with friends & colleagues.   If you are looking for a more private space, our mezzanine with its own bar is perfect.   We also have a lovely terrace overlooking the square which will be fabulous in those balmy English summer evenings.
