We have stopped for drinks at Glasshouse Stores on several occasions now. The pub provides some rustic reassurance and gently transports you back to a bygone era. The interior has a charming and slightly fusty Victorian feel about it. As far as I am concerned,...More

Please do not lose your time going to this place. My friends and I had never seen an unacceptable treatment from staff. They sold us drinks and did not advise that they would be closing the place in 10 min. They approach us in a...More

Have visited this pub a number of times when out in Piccadilly / Soho area. The beer is very good, and for central London it’s mega cheap. It’s a odd shape with nocks and crannies so look carefully for a seat. Gets busy as it’s...More

We visited a number of pubs in the locality during one afternoon and this was by far the quietest. As it's a Samuel Smiths pub they only have their own brewed beers which are unknown to some. As we had a number of Guinness drinkers...More

The beer is bad and pricy (~5£), the staff is unfriendly (kicked out exactly at 11 pm), restrooms are messy and we even had a hair at a pint.

My husband and I came here as we saw it on Trip Advisor and we liked the name of it. A traditional London boozer. Friendly and knowledgeable staff who make recommendations. I had a bottle of Perry and my husband had a pint of 'Taddy'!!...More

We ducked in to this pub to get out of the rain and to get some lunch. Sometimes when your are not expecting it you get lucky. We went in and ordered drinks, I had a pint of Taddy, which I had not tried before....More

Probably the worst pub experience I've had, could have been completely avoided but the staff here are beyond rude - clearly hate their jobs and other human beings. All was well, we were halfway through our second drink, when the barman came around and started...More

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho
hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a
compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,
and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red
Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the
