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
  • Great Sam Smith's pub with quirky areas inside. Has nothing to do with Game of Thrones but I'm sure they've gained some patronage because of it. Named after the doctor who discovered Cholera...
  • 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.
  • 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.
