Around eight pm and fancied a jug of good ale, but the bar was lined with drunks, clearly "regulars". A patronising attitude from whomever it was who was behind the bar made up my mind. Not my idea of fun listening to stale sexist and xenophobic jokes from a line of artists that regards it as their exclusive territory. Good... More

My brother lives in the area and took me in here for the first time on my latest visit. What an incredible and unique experience. The decor in this place is truly astounding and has to be seen to be believed. It’s like stepping back in time with the wood paneling, the seating and the dim lighting. There’s even sawdust... More

A really great little pub with no pretences of being anything grand, mind you they do keep a grand range of real ales, beers and premium continental lagers, what's more the regulars are a friendly bunch too, so as well as a good pint you can get some non-to-serious conversation as well!

Some of the unusual beers in there are really tasty. Besides the beer.....the things that makes this micro pub so special are the customers and the friendly bar staff. .

Have always enjoyed St Judes the owner does a good job with this Pub, worth a visit just to see the decor ect. Good real ale not pumped but straight from the barrel.

Lots of real ales, friendly staff and customers, reasonable prices, interesting decor that is pretty much the style of a 'London Tavern' but with the odd eccentricity - but it's the friendly feel and the beers that really matter in this unusual pub.

I'd heard about St Jude's and came across it last night. I popped in for a drink to check it out and stayed for 3 hours. Frank is a friendly/jovial chap and the customers in there very chatty and friendly - a relaxing place to spend a couple of hours. Will certainly go back in the near future
