After work drinks
You can’t beat a Samuel Smith’s pub for cheap drinks, so the fact that there are more than 30 of them in London alone is a very good thing. We’ve chosen this one for its super-central location by Piccadilly Circus, the old school décor and the pool table. Note that they only sell Sam Smith’s beer and you won’t find big brands like Coca-Cola here, so go if you want to stick it to the corporations.

Sometimes you don’t want your night to be about fancy beers, on-trend menus or in-pub entertainment, you just want somewhere that you can find a seat. In Soho this isn’t the easiest proposition but Glasshouse Stores is the type of pub that excels when you’re only looking to meet that kind of simple criteria.

Serving Samuel Smith beers, you already know it is going to be cheap. A round of four pints will end up somewhere near the £10 mark, which is pretty much unheard of in any other pub in Soho (unless it’s another Sam Smith venue). Spacious and traditional in the way that pubs by this brewery always are, there is nothing to dislike about the interior here. Golden wood, plenty of glass and plenty of room. Head upstairs or go down below to the basement. The pub might come off dark and dim by day but at night it prefers cosy and warm. As you can gather from this seating-led review, you’ll also find plenty of table room dotted around the different levels.

The food is as standard in Samuel Smith pubs as the likes of Taddy Ale and Alpine Lager are on draught. So expect plates of sausage, fish and pie that all come with chips. Solid stuff. Glasshouse Stores is a local in the heart of Soho. What more is there to say? It is noteworthy for the fact that it is accessible and no frills, which as previously stated, is sometimes all you want.

This was one of the most pleasant surprises I think I had found in my brief yet packed visit to London. I was looking for a place to drink after watching the a theater production (a delightful two man comedy act about the spirit of adventure) and stumbled into this quaint yet atmospheric pub. There was a lovely young barmaid who was pleasent to talk to. Then I started talking to what seemed one of the Locals where upon I was challenged to a game of darts. Following a rowdy 3 games we continued with a game was lost of me, but it had the makings of pool with balls and cue sticks although the table had no pocket holes and bits of wood on the table. But it was delightful none the less. I perfect way to spend an evening after an early show. Should I come back to London I would love to go here again.

I have been to this pub several times in the last few years, mainly with works parties, which have always been good, pleasant staff and a great atmosphere..... however this all changed last night by the severely rude barman that was running it last night.

Two from our party were drinking soda water (one was driving and one was a little unwell) but that didn't stop the barman for making rude remarks about it. I'm not sure what we had done to warrant such a reaction from him but every-time he walked past us he told us to shut up, stop swearing (?!) and to buy a proper drink, which mystified us as the rest of our party WERE drinking 'proper' drinks! Sorry, but I do not expect to be abused for the choice of drink I buy.

We were constantly stared down aggressively by the barman's friends when ever we came to the bar or left to go to the toilet.

Eventually we had enough and decide to leave... and we were met by 'good, you are finally going, take you soda water with you' and more unintelligible verbal abuse by the barman and his 'friends'.

This is totally unacceptable especially as we had gone there for a quiet drink and a meeting. My friends and myself will certainly not be back and I will not book our Christmas parties with them in future.
I will also be contacting the brewery about it.

No laughing, talking, "swearing" or drinking. Even if you find yourself dying of thirst, avoid at all costs!
