Visited on a monday afternoon. Nice old interior, nice patio in the back. Just a couple of beers available: 3 or 4 independent and 3 youngs or something like that. Was a bit quiet at the time, but that could be because it was monday early afternoon. Ok place for a quick stop on the way to clerkenwell.

Famous gilded pub on the edge of Bloomsbury, lots of glass, mirrors being one of the few remaining pubs to retain their snob screens. There is a theatrical theme in here, there is probably a decent chance of bumping into the odd luvvie. The beers are brewed in Bedford now from the Wells/Youngs range.

Not only a great Youngís pub but a perfect example of a genuine, traditional British pub with snugs, opaque glass and snob screens. Clean, tidy and well kept. No music. Friendly and attentive service. Serves decent pub food; I was very satisfied with my chicken and bacon salad. We enjoyed a Youngís Winter Warmer in perfect condition. Apart from Youngís beers on cask and bottles, Lamb also offers a few guest ales, usually from London breweries (visited 26.11.2012).

Visited in September 2012. Long ago this used to be one of my favourite Youngs pubs, and one that I would often recommend to visitors to London as the Youngs pub to visit. It was always comfortable and down to earth, decked with distinguished fixtures and fittings (snob screens and all that) but not too opulent or pretentious. Returning for the first time in a few years, I found it less appealing than I used to. The crowd (and it was crowded) seemed more twenty-something poseurish than it used to be. Three customers being served at the same time as me all ordered with the increasingly in vogue "can I get ...". Perhaps after work time on a Friday wasnít the best time to visit. I guess itís still as good a place as any for Youngs beers in central London but itís no longer a stand out. Two guest beers alongside the Youngs but they were exactly the same two as at the Youngs pub I visited just before so I presume guests come from a limited range across the chain. [3/7/7/6/12=58]
Revisited on Thursday 4 October 2012 at about 4pm. Much more as I remembered the place and comfortable on this occasion. Plenty of seating room. A few regulars sitting around reading or whatever. Yeah, a pleasant little sojourn

Pay a visit for wonderful pub architecture. Itís been well preserved, paintings, leather couches and snob screens included. A Youngs pub so donít expect anything else.

A rather pleasant pub, which was quiet when we went (29/12). Good pint of Youngs in here, although there is little else to choose from! The pub is a dark wood/greem leather affair, with lots of old theatre stuff everwhere, presumably related to the small theatre above. Would efinitely go again if in this part of London.

Beautiful place with a great wood and glass bar like I have never seen before, lovely green leather and wood benches. Beers were in good condition, the usual Wells and Young stuff on cask. Young crowd wasnít very interested in beer.

A very stylish place with dark wood and glass. Has a nice hazy feel to it, but somehow I was left feeling a little bit empty and cold. The atmosphere just wasnít that easy-going and comfy. At the time the selection wasnít that impressive. Clients gave odd looks at us and it seemed like we were out of place. Service was decent, and didnít leave that big of an impression. A nice place, but somehow I didnít find it to be my own. Maybe I should come at an other time when there are less people there.

Nice place, classy and lots of old fashioned charm in a non-pretentious way. Has an antique polyphon by the door that theyíll play ( and like a dumbass I forgot to request) for a donation to a charity. Has real ales, and macros plus some cider. Lots of dark wood and some very nice cut glass panels on swivels built into the bar. Friendly bar staff. íCept they didnít know the dif ítwixt cottage and shepardís pie when I asked. I said if thereís a diff and itís lamb or beef, iíLL Take the lamb. So they sent me beef. eh. In any case, food was dece and beer was more dece. Ambiances was A1- a. Iíd return.
