A quick one in here. Not much has changed downstairs and it's fairly small, so popped back upsatirs like I did 13(!) years prior. The room has been done over a little, either that or my memory is playing tricks. Still no OBB! I've become more enamoured with Sam's pubs over the years and whilst this isn't exactly first divsion, I still enjoyed my 30 minutes drinking one of the fruit beers.

October 2006
Sam Smiths outlet just off Carnaby Street, named after the chap who demonstrated that Cholera was a water-borne disease; the pump he used was located just outside the entrance. The downstairs bar is partitioned into three small areas by very low part-glazed screens. The upstairs bar is one main room, with the classic SS etched glass and wood panelling décor. Usual Sam Smiths range – except no OBB so no real ale. Clientele tend to be quite young. The inside also tends to get bloody cold outside of summer. I find it hard to have much of an opinion about this place really…meh. Visit once to have a quick look round. Rated 5

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about John Snow

Interesting Sam Smiths pub, with two of the three ground floor rooms divided by a part-glazed screen with a VERY low door. The other space is a snug, but there is a somewhat grander room upstairs (now mostly used for those dining). However, there is still no OBB on handpump which meant that it was the India Ale (£2.55, half) instead on this flying revisit. Certainly worth a visit, but could be so much better if they just had their real ale on.
