Category: Samuel Smith's

A chain of brewery-owned pubs serving solely own-brand drinks, including spirits, and even down to juices, cola, and other soft drinks. The cider compares favourably to Strongbow, and makes a nice change. Real ale lovers often complain bitterly if asked to go to a Sam Smith's pub. A few of their bottled beers seem to be acceptable, though. DrHyde thinks that the beer is at least tolerable, and the cheap prices make up for it not being great.

Prices in Sam Smith's pubs have historically been a lot lower than other pubs, but as of mid-2023 Boak & Bailey point out that this is no longer really the case.

According to Wikipedia, all Sam Smith's beers are vegan except Old Brewery Bitter and Yorkshire Stingo.

Decor tends towards the old-fashioned, with plenty of wood. Sam Smith's are particularly notable for retaining authentic (and some less so) period Victorian fittings in their pubs.
