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.

Impressive Samuel Smiths pub on High Holborn. Really beautiful place with several meters up to the ceiling, a long bar and several small booths along the walls. One cask ale, Old Brewery Bitter, and a decent selection of Sam Smiths bottled beers (cold as ice). Efficient staff, but Iím not sure they had much of a clue to what they were serving. Nice place though, worht a visit for a couple of ratings.

Beautiful Samuel Smith pub, previously known as Hennekyís. Vast 1920s íTudorí interior takes visitors by surprise. Itís a bit like drinking in the nave of a parish church. Needs to be crowded to have a real atmosphere, but I quite like it on saturday afternoons when itís quiet. Service is patchy but generally OK - the beer likewise. A better Samuel Smith pint is to be found up the hill at the Princess Louise.

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.

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.
