A gorgeous little gem of a Sam Smith's pub just off Carnaby Street in geographic terms but seemingly from another world entirely. For those who don't know the drill with Sam Smith's pubs you really need only know three things and they are as true of this pub as any; 1) They don't serve anything other than their own brands from beers and spirits through to soft drinks, 2) They tend to be in lovely buildings and decorated in a strictly old school style and 3) They are normally cheaper than the other pubs in the vicinity.
This has a particularly lovely rear room which resembles a classic European "brown pub" with extensive dark wood pannelling, a fireplace and lamp lighting and is an ideal refuge from the hurly-burly of the west end. The drinks were as ever excellent and reasonably priced. Service was good, but I would qualify that only by saying that it was very quiet when I visited and there was only one person manning the bar, so hard to judge how it would fair when it's busier.
All in all a good find and well worth visiting for a drink if you're passing that way.

Good little pub. The wooden exterior continues throughout, making the atmosphere nice and dark, the way it should be in an old London pub. Usual selection of Sam Smiths available so if that's your thing, give this place a try.

Had a quick one in here before heading to the Blues Bar across the street ,standard Samuel Smith's boozer - you either like them or you don't.

Firminafirm - The toilets have been in that state since 2003 when I first drank in here.

Probably my favorite of Sam Smith's Soho pubs, despite the lack of cask Old Brewery Bitter. I've had some excellent nights in here, although I haven't been in for a while. That is something I should try and remedy.

I still like this pub. However, on a recent visit just before Xmas the toilets were absolutely disgusting. Overflowing with grafiti everywhere. Gave an impression of not giving a toss about the pub.
