|I would certainly have refused a short measure (Sam Smiths pubs are notorious for them)and would have walked out if he had still refused to top it up. Alternatively, as a friend of mine did, you could offer to pay less than the full price. That normally does the trick. |

|Not topping up a short measure is not acceptable and I would have made a real issue of it.|
However I would suggest it is totally unacceptable to simply plug your phone in for free juice, the barman was totally right. It is common good manners to ask first before helping yourself to free elkectricity.

|Nice interior of the pub to look at but the Scottish barman on this Friday afternoon gave me a short measure on my pint, refused to top up and then marched over and bit my head off when I plugged my phone into a power outlet.|
"If you want to plug things in, ask first. You don't pay the bills here."
SO rude. I love Sam Smith pubs but I'm never going back here again.

|2nd pub I visited the same evening as I went to the Green Man. |
A very nice corner pub and under the Samuel Smith's Banner and a cracking pub it is. large Open Bar downstairs with a Good Selection of Sam Smiths beers and their range of lagers on draught. Upstairs is another large open area and a circular bar.
All in all another very nice traditional pub tucked just off Oxford Street that is worth a visit.
