This is a really great place. It's got loads of separate areas you can tuck yourself away in. Drinks are great value and service is efficient. Definitely worth a stop off.

It is one of the most beautiful English pubs I have ever seen, I like its Victorian style and the bar has a very particular arrangement, isolated between the booths. The beers are truly scrumptious, I would stand out the organic ones to my taste....More

Our visit to The Princess Louise was a real step back in time. The intimate venue feel is created by wood and glass partitions which make around 8 or 9 smaller rooms surrounding the bar area. Helpful service and the usual range of Sam Smith's...More

Stumbled upon this pub while touring London . It is amazing . Once you walk you smell a burning fire and see etched glass with wood panels . Each side has its own entrance and you have to walk through multiple doors and tiny rooms...More

lived around the corner from here for 18 months and continue to come back whenever I am in London, amazing beer and decor and always friendly staff, always pop in for a pint and end up spending the rest of the afternoon in there.

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
