It's truly one of my faves. It's a really impressive space - and sufficiently cavernous that even when it's busy it's not THAT crazy. Ok, fine, it can get packed, but the high ceilings make it better? I dunno.

Good beer menu, but I mean...don't go doing some crazy like asking for a negroni (I did this. Do as I say, not as I did).

From the second I stepped into this pub I got a strange feeling of deja vu and nostalgia. Maybe I was a 20th century English pub-patron in a past life. I'll take it.

I really enjoyed the dim lighting and the large space this unexpected pub provides. This Sam Smith pub is fabulously priced, despite being essentially right in the middle of the Chancery Lane, financial services area. Though...more
