Ye Olde is an understatement
The pub is so old some of it is made of wood although I don’t know if this is superficial or not
A few people were sat outside but hardly anyone was inside although it was so dimly lit I couldn’t tell,I literally had to feel my way to the bar only to find out they had no Guinness and Amstel and peroni aren’t my choice of drink so I had a quick coke and headed off the North Star
Bar staff were pleasant enough and I’m sure tourists will enjoy entering such an Olde Worlde pub but that’ll be my last visit owing to the drinks selection

Most 'superficia'l pub in London - made to look like a Swiss cottage!

Wonderful unique pub, slightly old school and a bit worn in places. Obviously not for those who like their pubs superficially tarted up (see below). Old Brewery is always in good condition, even in the hot weather. And, the pub is to be praised for providing a refuge from fat shouty men draped in the flag of St George by not showing the World Cup football.

5/10 seems about right. Very mediocre, and Sam Smiths could do a lot more with this place, not one of there better pubs in London. But in an area that is a bit of a desert now for pubs it's OK.

Visited here one Sunday. For me, this is probably one of the most unique pubs in London. It's owned by Samuel Smith's so therefore it's a similar theme to their other pubs if you've ever visited one of them. It's right by Swiss Cottage Underground station and it's easily located from there using exit #3.

The interior is nicely furnished with comfy armchairs and sofas. There's no music so it's a good place to meet up with friends for a chat over a drink. I had a pint of Sovereign ale (£3.16) and pulled pork pie which tasty enough.

This pub is a nice refuge from the hustle and bustle of London outside. I do like Sam Smiths boozers as they retain many traditional features and their food and drink is good value as well. I do recommend a visit if ever you're nearby.
