The Princess Louise is stunning. Itís a traditional, unspoilt city pub with superb architecture, cubicles, etched glass and original tiling. Not to be missed, although beer-wise it serves mainly (only?) Sam Smithís.

This was a great stop during RBESG. A old english pub that has plenty to look at and decent beer to go with the decor. Definitely worth the stop.

Visited several times and WOUW what a place... The deco is amazing, it is difficult to stop looking on all the lovely detail, to order a beer. Being a Samuel Smith, the beer range are their beers, both on tap and bottle. They do traditionel pub menu but didnīt eat this time, but will be back another time. Friendly staff, not a beer geek place, but for sure a nice, cosy pub to visit, if you are in this area :-)..

An absolute stunning heritage bar, full of glass, till and old wood. Service was pretty goo, but prices are a bit on the high side. This is owned by Samual Smith, so only their beers are available. Well worth a peek.

A truly magnificent pub that is clearly unchanged from the giddy heights of the pub day. Ornate, complex and beautiful. For once forget about the beer and step in to this pub from a time gone past.And if you are needing some Sam Smiths ticks... double win. Just exquisite!

If youíre interested in pub interiors design and etc. This is a MUST extremely grand and ornate interior. Very cosy place with separate booths which apparently served to keep the different classes of people drinking in the pub separate. Selection is not amazing since itís a sam smiths pub, but they are very good value for money! Must visit pub!

Very ornate interior in this Sam Smiths pub near Holborn. Typical Sam Smiths range, prices were OK. Has more space upstairs. Worth a visit.

Maze of a pub. Ornate windows and multiple nooks keep alive the Victorian feel. Wish the beer was better than just OK.

A beautifully ornate Sam Smiths pub on High Holborn edging on Theatreland and the pub is pure theatre in itself. Gilded mirrors, etched windows, gold and red colour scheme, in the style of the old Gin Palaces with booths and screens. The gents are marble and have a preservation order on them. However, beyond the building itself, you are then left with the Sam Smithís range of beers, be very careful about ordering bottles as they are particularly expensive.

If you like Victorian pub architecture & interiors, Princess Louise is pure pub-porn. The Whole pub is a monument to the 19th-century high-Victorian craftsmanship. Even the gentsí toilets is a Victorian pleasure. For further reading I recommend the book "Londonís best pubs" by Peter Haydon. And the beers? Lovely! Samuel Smith Extra Stout was awesome.
