Great ambiance - dark, low ceilings, original beams - the lot. Casks and taps are a good variety of Sam Smithís. A place beer lovers will appreciate while beergeeks may frown upon.

Amazing old pub in a very busy area. It reminds you of the good old days. Nothing much on beer, if you are looking for craft beer. Its mostly Sam Smith cask ales. If you are into the pub culture, then you must visit.

Central location. Nothing wrong with Sam Smithís beers, but they are not the draw here. Itís the sort of atmosphere you want to drink in - a proper old pub rather than a modern bar. I have to rate it down for selection etc, but itís been a personal favourite for some time.

All so can say is this place is all about its ambiance. I guess itís arguably Londonís oldest pub. Service was good while we were there, but they were real busy, I mean it was busy, just not max busy. Beer selection is limited as they are a Sam smith house. Food was Basic English pub fare. Was good, not great. Itís all about the character of the place good for a visit, but I wouldnít go here much, with better offerings in the area.

Surprisingly much space in a variety of different bars. Ended up in a somewhat younger part of the pub - a room with 25 seats. Ca. 10 beers on tap. Large selection of dishes incl. pies, sandwiches, salads, burger, ribs etc. On tap: ..Samuel Smith Taddy lager, Double four lager, Alpine lager, Pure brewed organic lager, Extra Stout, Old brewery bitter, Organic wheat beer, Dark Mild.

We went there on Monday around 7 p.m. Beautiful old-ish looking place where you go more for ambiance/history than for beer. Not much light (it add to the ambiance). Staff was quick to deliver beer, but not really friendly. Selection is only Samuel Smith, but thereís a decent variety of their beers on tap and in bottles. Thereís some food, but we didnít tried it. Prices are fair for London, but considering how cheap Samuel Smith beers are worldwide, it was a little expensive. A nice place to go with friends who arenít beer geeks. A must-visit once for the place itself and for the ambiance, but the selection isnít enough to keep you happy longer than for one or two visits.

If ever in London this is an absolutely GREAT pub to visit just for the building. Make sure you head to the basement floor amazing ambiance. Selection is purely sam smiths but very good value. You must visit this pub at least once!

Nice pub set on fleet street with the entry set aside. Dark wodden panaled inside with a tiny bar at first but covering several floors which expand out. Also a restaurant and pub grub was available though i did not have any but it looked pretty good and typically Sam smith priced which is unusual for London. Sam smith on tap and several different bottles available, too. Service was average non-smile London type with London prices for a pint. Overall a good pub though really worth the visit taking in the atmosphere and beer...
