|Ah, The Chandos - one of my favourite 'watering holes' of all in London! I can't help but visit whenever I'm near Traf/Square. Which isn't often enough..! DO pop upstairs though, to the 'Opera Room' its worth a look. Downstairs is massive and impersonal, but upstairs is smaller, with a Gentlemans Club feel about it...only, ladies are in fact allowed! Leather sofas, and window bench seats give it charm & character. Sam Smith may save you a bob or two, the students certainly appreciate that. I did see a 'scholar' reading what looked like an encyclopedia upstairs here once...so you may encounter more learned drinkers here..! On the other hand, you may bump into me....! 'cos i luvvit 'ere|

|Regardless of what anyone says, this is a decent pub and ideal for a cheap pint to escape the crowds at Trafalgar Square. I've been here when it's packed and there's always a good mix of punters, although the upstairs bar can resemble a sixth form common room at times. I suggest you head to Chandos to start your night out, get a couple of cheap pints under your belt and then head off elsewhere in search of more interesting ales and some crumpet.|

|If I'm around Trafalgar Square and fancy a pint, I generally end up in The Chandos! It's a Samuel Smith pub, so the beers are well priced and it has a traditional pub feel to it. Lots of dark wood, a cosy seating areas etc. Upstairs there is a large lounge area with some very colourful stained glass windows. |
A mate of mine recently showed me an iPhone app called "Smith Finder" http://bit.ly/TxB5ki that features this pub and a load of other interesting old pubs. Our "couple of pints" ended up turning into a bit of an impromptue pub crawl!
