Chandos..... one of 3,800...
Samuel Smiths pub - one of London's 3,800 beer haunts.
Location: 29 St Martin's Lane, WC2N 4ER
Description: This pub seems to feature in several Monopoly board pub crawls, due to being close to Trafalgar Square... and it will not let you down. Cheap Samuel Smith beer (very tasty) and food being served - the upstairs Opera Bar has sofas and coffee tables, and window seats that almost overlook the Square! PLUS...this pub is one of London's 3,800 pubs, 9% of Britain's public houses. There are 233 nightclubs in London or 15% of nightclubs across Britain. In Westminster alone, there are over 330 venues open after midnight.
