    Massive, really old and ornate Sam Smith's pub. Lots of wood, tremendous atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

    Huge place and very nice as well. Perfect for a beer after work. Go early because gets packed at 18.00ish. Comfortable seats & craft beer.

    Lovely old pub, beautiful architecture. Can get very warm, but the air conditioning is great when it kicks in. Cask ale is decent and cheap. Cider is lovely but expensive.

    Beautiful historic building, but the staff is not particularly friendly. It's always packed, and it's hard to find a place to sit (check the bar downstairs!)

    Huge old barn of a place. Probably very old, but the Victorian mock-gothic is fantastic. Sam Smith's....so can be great, can be dodgy

    Medievals the word. Grab a private 'confession' booth for those plotting a revolution.

    The triangular fireplace here is great when the weather is cold (the flue goes down instead of up) and the snugs are great for a chat.

    Great Smiths to visit just after lunch time. It's like having a medieval banquet hall to yourself.

    The decor and interior is breahtaking. Full of conservative city types as you'd expect. The drinks here are reasonably priced too, which is surprising if you consider the clientele & surrounding area.

    Great pub with great beer selection but never eat here! Had the fish and chips and it was hands down the worst I've ever had. And I'm not fussy!

    There's been a pub here since 1430 and the current half timbered pub is Grade II listed with cute booths like confessionals! Fantastic Sam Smiths beers, decent pubgrub menus. Check out the cellar bar

    Sam smiths pub (nice and cheap). Great atmosphere, horrid underground dungeon/medieval/canteen-like restaurant. Quiet on weekends, busy at 6 with city folk.
