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 it’s 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 gents’ toilets is a Victorian pleasure. For further reading I recommend the book "London’s 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.

If you’re 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 it’s a sam smiths pub, but they are very good value for money! Must visit pub!

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.

Very ornate interior in this Sam Smiths pub near Holborn. Typical Sam Smiths range, prices were OK. Has more space upstairs. Worth a visit.

Outstanding recreated interior, with small booths. For someone like me who has only had the bottled export beers there was a lot of rating to do as well. A very nice visit

The best place to try Samuel Smith’s beers in the capital - the Old Brewery here is particularly good. Recently restored Interior is stunning - a superb example of High Victorian. As with all of Smith’s pubs the prices don’t hurt the wallet too much.

Near Holborn underground station. Different place with 5-6 booths around the bar. 6-8 Samuel Smith-beers. Lowest prices of all the pubs I visited!
