I tend to think Sams do a much better job with these historic pubs than the likes of Nicholsons and Greene King, if you can get over your phobia of their beer. a lively boozer with many areas but the old fella waiting on the dining room was a bit miserable. at £3.60 easily the most expensive pint of OBB i’ve had but still a snip for central London.

This Sam Smith house is rightfully famous and does have a very interesting and old interior.The side entrance leads onto a corridor with ,to the right a very charming square room with a blazing fire and is described above the door as a place where gentlemen will be served.The bar here also opens to the corridor and is picked out in wood with inlaid glass.Opposite is the Chop Room with lights off ,although the fire was glowing and I assume this is a restaurant.The food offering looks pub grub with mains £11-13.50 and cheaper light bite options,which seemed reasonably priced given it's tourist attractions.
Along the corridor there is a small side snug with small serving bar,while next is the Cheshire Room at a lower level with a wooden vaulted ceiling but much less charm than the rest of the building.It also smelt damp,but there is a lot of room here and a long serving bar.
There is a tricky climb up to the first floor with two further rooms ,both well panelled and containing large tables which can easily seat 8,while the next flight of stairs was roped off but was described as the Johnson Room.
Only Old Brewery Bitter and a selection of Sam Smith kegged beers and cider,it's worth buying a half of OBB (£1.80,dull but not offensive) and looking carefully around,there is a lot of history here..However the lack of interesting beer will always be a negative and sadly points have been deducted as a result.

The entrance is tucked away down an alleyway. Sam Smith's pub so you know what your getting beer wise and as you would expect an atmospheric old style interior that is spread over 4 levels with a number of different rooms and bars. Stairs to the toilet a bit dodgy if your tall.
