Quinno _ left this review about The Chandos

First visit for over 10 years and the start of the Sam’s London Challenge. Before you go in under the lovely stained glass Opera Room canopy, have a look up to the apex to see the animated cooper bashing his barrel. I frequented the downstairs this time, though the upstairs appears largely unchanged when I nosed in. So the main drinking room on ground floor is a pleasing green, white and brown colour scheme with some pretty floral tiling and plenty of polished woodwork. There are a number of snugs/booths which make for a pleasant drinking environment and most (if not all) have a lattice stained glass window with a relief – ours had a chap with a large bag of malt. Off to the bar with its impressive gantry and there was a good chunk of the Sam’s range available; I started the day with a pint of Man in a Box AKA Alpine Lager. I enjoyed my stop here and will be in again sooner rather than later.

First visit on Sunday, was pleasantly surprised too. We did the upstairs bar (Opera Room) which has a nice relaxed vibe, just the kind of place for a long relaxed session. Size of the place means that the full Sam Smiths range is available which is a blessing. Interior is classic Sam Smiths; a blast from the past, like a lounge from the 1970’s. Two bars - one downstairs and another upstairs. Worth a stop and a good place to take five whilst pottering around the local landmarks. Rated 7

expected this to be a Greene King or something from the outside so was very pleased to find this. a budget valued traditional Sam Smiths pub just off Trafalgar Square? what a fine place to relax in central London. the usual ornate interior with cosy booths aplenty. Excellent.

A nice looking pub internally ,nothing over fancy in the single room apart from the wooden booths, the walls adorn many black and white pictures of the brewery and related stuff. of course only OBB is the solitary real ale choice in this Samuel Smiths pub, but my keg Extra Stout was rather good.A decent pub but you are more likely to find me around the corner in The Harp.
