Really interesting place. Very hard to describe but worth a visit. photos donít do it justice. Cubicles can be tricky if youíre in a big group. Of course you can sit upstairs but thereís no real atmosphere up there. Very cheap considering location. A round of 3 for just over a tenner. Good service. Only Sam Smith beers available but thatís fine by me.

If you are into mirrors, this is the place for you, if you like mirrors and cut glass, it is even better for you, if you like mirrors, cut glass and cheap beer, move in! What a wonderful pub this is, ornate, Victorian and intact, brilliant. The centre bar is also a wonder in its self, the wood carvings are just lovely. Sam Smiths beers, only OBB is cask mind, the rest bottled or keg. Like all Sams pubs, they only sell their own spirits, so no Bacardi or Gordons Gin in here, but I believe their own brands are fine. The ground floor has been revamped, the bar and mirrors are still there, but small snug boards have been erected to brake the room into little bite size chunks. Not sure I like them. The great old toilets (downstairs) havenít been altered thank goodness and the upstairs is now a posh lounge type design, mostly for food or a quiet pint.

Lovely Victorian-style pub that oozes atmosphere. Every surface in this place has some sort of intricate detail on it. They have a very limited selection of beers though - they only carry the Samuel Smiths brand, but those are good too. And usually cheaper than what they have in most other pubs. Donít go here for craft beers, but DO go here to see a fantastic pub whose equal youíll only find in very few places. And enjoy a beer while doing so.

Very nice interior. Victorian aged with everything authentic. Cubicles around the bar. Nice glass, ceiling, walls, even the toilets. Selection focused on Sam Smithís. The beer might not be too exciting, but it is solid. What really makes this pub worth a visit is the interior.

Gorgeous heritage pub, the usual Samís own offerings, moderately priced by London standards, extortionate compared to oop North.

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. (Visited 10 August 2014).

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.
Brugmansia  (463) Jylland, Denmark | August 24, 2014
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.
