A Jack the Ripper-era, warehouse-style, sepia-toned interior works well in the context of the Longroom’s location next to Smithfield Market. Traditional salt beef – moist and flaky – served on
sourdough from Gail’s bakeries is the mainstay of a short menu that also features soups, doorstep sarnies and toastie-sized Welsh rarebit laced with craft beer (steeply priced at £6.50, regardless
of additional pickles). Wines by the glass include a serviceable house Sangiovese at £4, and the same outlay secures a pint of London Fields lager from a list that also touts Meantime Yakima Red
and Aspall’s Harry Sparrow cider. Service is sweet, but explaining a virgin Mary to a Spanish-speaking bartender can verge on a Fawlty Towers farce. Expect plenty of takers during the week,
although Sunday lunch in this very long room can be a lonely place.
The Longroom is a newish pub centrally located in Farringdon, right near St John’s and up the road from Smithfield market. We first came to The Longroom on a Sunday in early February after a painstakingly long three hour wait to visit the Rain Room at the nearby Barbican Centre.

The Longroom can simply be described as a brewpub, recently opening at 18-20 St John Street in Farrington it boasts a beer selection which is regularly updated and has a 'long tail' of bottlings that runs into the dozens. Whilst a selection of kegs (served by the pint but also by 1/2's and 1/3rd's) of Anchor Liberty Ale and other cult craft beers will draw you into the warm, vibrant surrounds, it's the bar menu that'll keep you from wandering off (St John and a branch of Burger and Lobster are but a short stumble away). 18-20 St John Street, EC1M 4AY. @thelongroompub...
