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.

Even though the decor is faux medieval done during the Victorian age, itís a real treat. Situated in an extremely busy section of London, the Cittie of Yorke offers a welcome respite from the crowds. As with all Sam Smith pubs that Iíve visited, the food was good and satisfying...definitely a cut above all other tied pub groups in England. That their bitter is consistently less expensive than the bitter at other pubs is a plus, but I canít but be disappointed that the other beers in Sam Smithís range, that are exported to the US, are never available in their London pubs...no Imperial Stout, Oatmeal Stout, Taddy Porter, or Old Brewery Pale Ale...all superior to their bitter on tap.

Not really a fan as Sam Smiths goes. Downstairs food bit feels like a pub, not a school canteen. Most Smithes have a far nicer ambience. Selection is Smithsí standard, which is nice, but available all over London in nicer settings.

Itís a Sam Smithís house, so itís OBB or nothing. Like drinking in an old hunting lodge. Probably.

Pubís main attraction is architectural, but the Sam Smiths beers are well kept as well which is a bonus. I have never eaten in this pub therefore left the food rating blank. We were served quickly on a busy Friday night on my January visit with a friend, and we enjoyed the atmosphere. Loads of "snugs" and discreet intimate corners to drink in. Well worth a visit for the experience.

Beautifully quaint pub, with an underground chimney thing. I enjoyed the draught stout here - a good central location.

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.

Very beautiful. I had a lot of new ratings, but once you have done Samuel Smiths there is nothing new to return for.

A Sam Smithís pub is better, IMO, than the other biggies. Plus, this is the lowest amount Iíve paid for a pint since a visit to Newcastle in 1999. Sure, itís full of douchebags that work in the high rises (er, like me....), but the beer is tasty and inexpensive.

Fascinating Sam Smiths pub in Central London. Wonderful downstairs area. Beer is almost free by London standards. Great atmosphere, it’s very easy to spend all day here.
