Fitzroy Tavern, Fitzrovia

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!!

The Crown and Sugarloaf, Bride's Lane

The Crown and Sugarloaf is a small cosy pub tucked away down a side street just off Fleet Street. It's one of the smaller Samuel Smith pubs, but still has the traditional look and feel that a lot of the SS pubs have. Due to its size, they don't serve food, but the bar staff are always very friendly, and with an open fire, it is great during the winter. It's also quite a quiet place, so perfect if you just want a pint and a bit of a chat.

The Anchor Tap, Tower Bridge

This is a great pub tucked away down towards the river just south over Tower Bridge. It used to belong to the The Anchor Brewhouse which is the amazing brewery building that can be seen on the riverside.

It has a nice outdoor seating area, multiple different rooms inside, including a pool room and a games room with draughts/chess boards and dart board. It has a nice lounge area upstairs and a couple of seating areas on the ground floor too. The bar staff seemed very friendly and it had a nice atmosphere in general. Being a Sam Smith's pub the beers a pretty reasonably priced as well.

Worth a detour for a couple of pints. I'll definitely be going back next time I'm over that neck of the woods.
