An awesome building which is the best outlet for Samuel Smith I presume. Very cheap prices are to be expected, but the beer range wonít keep you excited enough to hang around for more than an hour. Still, not too far from the Wenlock and holding pretty much the complete Sam Smith beer range if youíre looking for those.

Another Sam Smiths pub. Beautiful pub though with wooden fitted interior. Wide hall style with charming booths along the side. Massive wooden vintage vats on display above the bar. Ten hand pumps available. It was busy at lunch time with locals chatting away about football and, er well football. Fun place.

Not a big selection of real ale. However, it seems to have been a "brewpub" once upon a time, and all the old casks and ceiling ironmongery are still there. Little cubbies to pair up in. Good place to stop.

A Sam Smiths pub, so you pretty much know what youíre getting in terms of the beer; although, I actually found a beer here on tap that I have never seen before and that only had ten rates (Yorkshire Bitter). What I really loved about this place was the interior. I donít know whether itís authentic or not, but the feel of the place is great. Not totally sure how to describe it, though I would say it reminded me somehow of the Harry Potter movies. As with all Sam pubs the draft beer is dirt cheap, so thatís nice. Bartender was pleasant. Absolutely worth a visit if youíre in the area.

Visited here on 29th October í12 for no other reason than weíd been in Craft Clerkenwell and I wanted to show an American friend a grade II listed pub. I certainly didnít come for the great Sam Smiths beers! Last time I visited (2004/5) you could still pick up a pint of cask bitter for around the £1.60 mark when the rest of London was typically £2.50/60.
Didnít really fancy the bland bitter so decided to split a bottle of something a little tastier and plumped for Oatmeal Stout from the fridge. Be Warned ... £5.50 !!! Should have checked, but was not expecting that price when you can buy better bottled beers imported from the US in London pubs for these kind of bucks so I donít see how SS can justify charging this for their own product in their own bar ! Live and learn I guess. Service was prompt and despite being here at 8pm on a Monday night all of the booths opposite the bar were taken. Good atmosphere filled with a mix of suits and tourists.

Stunning building. Sam Smiths beers, including Old Brewery Bitter on cask. Thatís probably enough to attract visitors to London (but bear in mind that the Princess Louise, an equally stunning Sam Smiths pub, is just down the road). As well as the Sam Smiths bottles, which probably wonít be new to visitors, thereís an opportunity for completists to try some of the pretty dire Sam Smiths keg beers (and cider), if thatís your thing.

Lovely environment for a few SS ticks. Beers I had (the better ones, cask) mostly served well. Staff alas unable to cope with the idea of wanting a bottled beer that wasnít chilled to 3C.

This is a place to take tourists if ever there is. It is a lovely pub. The dark walled room on the left as you walk in should be looked into, but not used, instead carry on into the main bar.
On the lefthand side is a long bar with huge barrels sat above, on the right are little booths with enough room for two people on each bench. There is a central radiator and brown tiles toilets. It is like stepping back in time.
The only cask beer is Sam Smithís Old Brewery Bitter which is a shame, but there are all the other Sam Smith beers and spirits to choose from too.
I love drinking in here and often use it as a meeting place when organising London days out with friends.

Only one real ale but has wide range of Sam Smithís bottles. Main selling point is the pub itself with its unspoilt interior and brewery paraphernalia. Service wasnít bad for central London. Would visit again.
