This Samuel Smith pub is one of the most beautiful pubs in London. Their beers were all excellent. Located not far from Covent Garden. I love it. Good prices.
All in all I must say that i do not understand the earlier raters. Yes, this pub has limited beers, but itís a pub owned by the brewery.

If you like Victorian pub architecture & interiors, Princess Louise is pure pub-porn. The Whole pub is a monument to the 19th-century high-Victorian craftsmanship. Even the gentsí toilets is a Victorian pleasure. For further reading I recommend the book "Londonís best pubs" by Peter Haydon. And the beers? Lovely! Samuel Smith Extra Stout was awesome.

A truly magnificent pub that is clearly unchanged from the giddy heights of the pub day. Ornate, complex and beautiful. For once forget about the beer and step in to this pub from a time gone past.And if you are needing some Sam Smiths ticks... double win. Just exquisite!

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.

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 :-)..

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.

This is a gem of a boozer, from a Victoriana and architecture point of view. The place is just beautiful, and I would defitely go back in here for a pint and avail myself of one of the booths to sit in. Sam Smith, so no real selection, although you can get their full range of handpulled and bottled beers here, and a knockdown price of £2.25....and this was, until recently, extortionate for this pint! OBB is a decent pint, a great session ale, and a real example of good honest Yorkshire beer. Recommend heartily.

If youíre interested in pub interiors design and etc. This is a MUST extremely grand and ornate interior. Very cosy place with separate booths which apparently served to keep the different classes of people drinking in the pub separate. Selection is not amazing since itís a sam smiths pub, but they are very good value for money! Must visit pub!

Classic Victorian pub with all the requisite features, tiled floors and etched glass in abundance. The extra stout at £3.40 a pint, was exceptional value in an expensive city like London, although there was only one person serving behind the bar. Very good, but marked down slightly for lack of staff.
