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.

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.

Visited at about 3pm on a Friday, so it was already full of businessmen. Found myself a little booth in this old dark traditional pub. It was busy and the bar was a tad understaffed, but they were knowledgeable. Cheap, like most Sam Smiths pubs, Iíd visit again.

Huge, dark old cavern of a place at the back, with a lighter room at the front. Lots of dark wooden panelling and old memorabilia giving it an old look. CAMRA guide says itís a historic pub, and I believe them.
Itís a Sam Smith house, and has the full Sam Smith range in bottles, plus some on tap.
The food was very good. Crowd seems to be mostly city types working nearby.
