|Not as cheap as it used to be. Sam Smiths pub with its own unique brands that take a little getting used to.|

|I was disappointed to see no handles here as well.|
That said, the pints of OBB I had were reasonably OK and the atmosphere fairly convivial.

|I love Sam Smiths pubs and I rarely find they disappoint. The Fitzroy is clearly the exception that proves the rule. For newbys to an SS pub you can expect really competitive prices and, in London especially, great locations. This has both but it's after this that things go badly awry. Disappointingly there is no cask ale on offer here and the service is the worst I've experienced. Faced with a queue I was informed that the barman 'wasn't serving just at the moment' and his colleague demanded I go to the other side tof the bar to be served (presumably so he didn't have to move more than a foot). The condition of the place was a disgrace (all four urinals out of action for instance). The highlight was the grafiti'd notice in the Gents. Under the ubiquitous sign saying the 'These toilets are checked regularly' some wag had written 'wot each millenium'! Sums it up really.|

|I can't quite put my finger on what makes this pub so popular. There are plenty of other Samuel Smith's pubs around and it is certainly not the most fancy one, but nevertheless, it's always heaving and the atmosphere is always buzzing. It used to be great when there were tables and parasols outside but unfortunately these have now been removed.|
The beer is cheap, the staff are sometimes a little hard, but they are always efficient and you know exactly what you're getting. Being bang on Charlotte St it's also very conveniently located for after work drinkers and students alike. Don't sit downstairs, the extractor fan from the gents blows straight into the seating area!!
