Foursquare Tips

  • The physician John Snow investigated a cholera epidemic in Soho in 1854 and made the breakthrough that cholera was water-borne. By turning off the public water pump here he saved many lives.
  • It's a Sam Smiths pub . . . nuff said.
  • winter is coming
  • Perhaps the pub with the most important historical connection in London. If you don't know John Snow's story, look it up now.
  • One of the most affordable and personable pubs in Soho.
  • Non-heterosexuals are not welcome at this establishment.
  • You know nothin' John Snow. Great pub. It's a Sam Smith's, so cheap booze. Recommend the alpine lager for just over 2
  • Taddy Lager is nice and pretty cheap for London (3.24 a pint). Lots of young people. Good pub.
  • On 14 April 2011 The Guardian reported that a gay couple were ordered to leave after kissing. The management of the pub accused them of being obscene and rudely ordered them out. Shameful staff...
  • best place to get cheap wheat beer! (or any other sam smith's pub lol).
  • Really love the mini-door, definitely worth seeing
  • You know nothing John Snow.
  • My wife and I stopped here on our first date!
  • I'm here for the beer
  • Good old Samuel Smiths. Assuring a northerner can have a pint in Lindon at close to northern prices.
  • Nice pub, love the Samuel Smith Pale Ale.
  • Love the tiny door inside the bar!
  • Named after the doctor who helped identify the source of a cholera outbreak in Soho, England, in 1854.
  • cherry beer! get it!
  • 2.06 for a pint of not-half-bad-bitter. That's almost 5 pints for a 10.00. This is THE place to start a night out.
