Nestled in the heart of London's historic Clerkenwell and with the architecturally resplendent City University in perfect view from it's Voluptuous windows;  The Peasant has always been at the fore-front of the gastro revolution. "Some Say" it was the second ever gastro pub in the UK. With a stunning upstairs restaurant filled with natural light , the owners collection of circus memorabilia and art proudly displayed the Victorian horseshoe bar downstairs which features an original mosiac floor throughout.

 There are two different menus: a la carte for the dining room and a little lighter for the bar.  We also have one of the best beer selections in London available including beers from some of the finest Major and Micro brewers including: Crouch Vale, Four Pure, Camden Town, Brooklyn, Beaverton, Hammerton, Hackney, Bath Ales, Hawkes and our very own Sponsor: 'Meantime Brewery'.

  The Peasant has won numerous awards in it's majestic history including: Regional winner for 'London Best Gastro Pub' at The Great British Pub awards, Regional Winner for London Archant awards: 'Best Gastro Pub', Tattler Magazine Restaurant award winner. We are also regularly featured in the best Wedding venue magazines/blogs and websites and voted in the top one hundred wedding venues in the UK by Conde Nast Brides Magazine and always tipped highly on Trip advisor. 

Go on and grab a Black Cab and in all likelihood the driver will know his way to this grand bastion of gastro pub-ness. Brothers Gregory and Patrick have owned the Peasant for over seventeen years although on a daily basis the pub is now managed by the supremo Nick Rouse who, after several years of personal pub ownership decided to bring his expertise to this glorious leviathan whilst the Brothers take care of sister pub: The Londesborough of Stoke Newington. So if you are looking for the perfect Sunday Roast, Wedding venue, Dinner date-post or pre Sadlers Wells, or just a cozy pint with a home made pie by the fire and a quiet moment to reflect on life in hectic London drop an email, book a table online or just as easy pop in.
