The Horse and Groom, Great Portland Street

Another fine addition to the list of Sam Smith's pubs that I've had the pleasure of drinking in. Again, a nice building with old school elegant decor and very cheap but good quality beers. Old Brewery Bitter at £3.10 a pint in an area where the going rate for a pint is creeping north of £5 is not to be sniffed at.

The Jolly Sailors Inn, Whitby

Nice Sam Smith's pub that isn't perhaps as picturesque as some of their other pubs, but has a homely charm of its own. Beer was as ever lovely and prices even cheaper than in London where Sam Smith's are always amazing value.

The Laurel Inn, Robin Hood's Bay

Lovely traditional pub that is worth braving the steep roads of Robin Hood's Bay for as long as you can keep your footing. The main bar is a gorgeous cramped affair decorated with bric-a-brac that will serve you a world class pint of Adnam's Ghost Ship (or at least it did when I visited!) in a convivial atmosphere enhanced by a nice real fire (which to be fair was overkill on a balmy October day when I called in). The other smaller bar is sparsely decorated but has comfortable seating carved directly out of logs and was mercifully a few degrees cooler. The only downside was of all things the gents toilets, which are outside the pub and consisted of a cramped and grotty room with a single urinal and a barely functioning sink. This is however a minor gripe. An excellent place to stop off for a few jars.
