“value for money”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

The beers here are extremely good and most of them organic and made from the purest ingredients! Not very fond of drinking lots of chemicals that you find in other beers! You have to try them if you are looking for quality!

“Good pub”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Good beer and an amazing pub. We were lucky that it was quiet so we could see the interior easily including a fireplace in the middle of the room where the smoke goes downwards - cunning, Still works apparently.

Beer (Sam's and only Sam's) was in very good nick.

“What Americans think UK pubs look like”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

Founded in 1430 it may well be, but nothing really remains of this very ancient heritage. The charm of the place is in the archaic frontage, the long corridor to the main bar, and the gloomy little kiosks where lawyers met their clients (or prostitutes met theirs, according to whom you ask!). The pub is owned by Sam Smiths, so the beer is both affordable and good. The food is mediocre, I would say, although one doesn't really go here for food: it's not a gastropub. The decor is added to with vast vats (barrels, casks) and accessories such as a probably Georgian stove. The staff have, in my experience, always been rather brusque...and not in a charming way. However this is a minor issue. In terms of Smiths pubs, though, it's not the best in London by a long shot.
