+1 for the Princess Louise in Holborn. I always head there when I'm in London. I have a right good laugh at punters trying to order a pint of Carling.

worked for SS for a few years.
no music license. no tv. own brand everything. very tight ship.

the man himself is an odd ball.. you would think he was just another farmer when he walks in. and had a habit of firing bar-staff for the smallest of things.

if i turned up to work with a can of coke the running joke was that i better finish it because if be gone if Sam walked in and saw it in his premises.

I was astounded, haven't paid those sort of price for decades - more used to 4 quid a pint down here in the midlands and 6 quid plus in London. Is this the norm in Sam Smiths pubs?
Historically Sam Smiths has always been pretty cheap.
I went to college in York in the late seventies and it was always the cheapest beer on offer then. Probably because it didn’t have to travel far from Tadcaster where it is brewed.
I haven’t seen any for sale outside Yorkshire for years. Shame, cos the Old Brewery Bitter is a fine pint
