Samuel Smiths Best English Pubs – London’s Secret Hidden Gems
Traditional Pubs In The Heart Of The Capital But Without The London Prices
There is a group of pubs in London that are a hidden gem. This group is owned by a brewery company called the Samuel Smith old brewery. Based in the north this company, better known as Sam Smiths, has pubs in other parts of the country and a good proportion of the . pubs are in the capital
The Samuel Smith old brewery is a secretive company. They don’t advertise their pubs, so you won’t find out about them that way. They don’t have a website listing them that can be stumbled across. They don’t advertise at their pubs. So they are not the easiest pubs to discover, but why are they a gem?
The answer is simple; they are a selection of pubs that symbolize the qualities of a good English pub but with the extra quality of providing great beers that are also cheap! With an average price for a pint of beer in the capital commonly costing between £3 and £4 or more, the Samuel Smiths pubs are significantly cheaper with pints costing between £2 and £3.. I guess the reason they can sell at prices this low is that they only sell their own products. And their beers aren’t second rate imitations, they are decent brews! All their beers are made from only natural ingredients with no artificial additives, making them suitable for anyone who prefers a traditionally crafted brew. In addition to this, most of their beers are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Here are a three of my favorite Sam Smiths pubs that you might enjoy as well.
The John Snow. Named after a British physician who identified that a cholera outbreak in Soho originated from a local water pump. This pub is situated in the heart of Soho, just around the corner from the hustle and bustle of Carnaby St .
The Chandos. I like this pub as it’s handy for Charing Cross Station and Covent Garden . It’s also a great place for a more leisurely drink as the upstairs has sofas and a comfy lounging quality. It can get really busy around evening rush hour, especially at the end of the working week, as workers enjoy a few drinks before the commute home.
The Fitzroy Tavern. This pub gets very popular with local workers, spilling out onto streets in the warmer months. It’s location on Charlotte St is not far from the maddening crowds of Oxford St, ideal for some respite from the shopping. There are plenty of really good restaurants nearby, so if pub grub isn’t fancied, there are plenty of other options to choose from before or after drinking here.
So if you enjoy drinking in traditional pubs, or are a to the capital and want to experience a quintessential British pub, or if you are a vegetarian or vegan or someone who prefer not to have artificial or chemical additives to your beer, Sam Smiths pubs are a good recommendation! visitor, traveler or tourist
