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!

Absolutely beautiful interior right down to the ornate bogs. Only two quid for a pint of Sam Smiths. Snugs restored a couple years back. Have a butchers and a pint, then move along as there are better beer selections elsewhere.

This is the most beautiful pub I have ever been to! The toilets, the booths and the lounge couches on the first floor. Beautifully decorated! The beer selection is limited. The food is delicious and the bartenders and staff are really friendly!

Charming old pub serving Sam Smith ales on cask. While there may not be much interest in the beer itself, the pub is worth a look and I enjoyed poking around the ’cubby’ holes. A few regulars at the bar too.

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.

It’s a Sam Smiths - one real ale, Old Brewery Bitter, but that’s a good one. So what else? Victorian, Victorian, Victorian. Glass, Glass, Glass. Tile, Tile, Tile. Stained glass in the Gent’s. It’s close to Lincoln’s Inn, so you may have to tolerate lawyers, but at least the British lawyers are tolerable. Gammell rates the cuisine as outstanding. Interesting mix of people. Don’t miss this one!

I can only repeat the earlier comments. Visit this pub for the interior rather than its products. The Sam Smith’s beers are ok but it was a better pub under the previous owners.

Superb pub with wonderful interior including the gents toilets! A pub that I always try to pop into when in this area of London. Beer choice is very limited i.e. only the Sam Smiths OBB as a cask choice but great range of Sam Smiths beers in bottles. Pub was busy when I visited on Tues 3rd October and I must say it was looking a little bit unkempt particularly the gents toilets.

Go there to look at the architecture, have a pint, then move on to pubs with more interesting beers!
