Duke of Argyll – Sam Smiths Round 23
It has been a while since my last visit to a Sam Smiths pub… the Quest had stalled, but on Saturday afternoon I got the Quest back on track by visiting the Duke of Argyll located on Brewer Street in Soho. I had at last reached pub number 23… hopefully before the year is out I will have visited all Sam Smiths pubs in London – well that is the plan!
The Duke of Argyll is a traditional English Boozer, not the most characterful Sam Smiths pub I have been in, but never-the-less I liked the place: smallish, charmingly English, clean, old pictures, friendly bar tender, good ale, a good pub for a relaxing ale or three!
When I first arrived the pub was empty… apart from 3 people outside enjoying their lagers outside al fresco style. I ordered up a pint of Stout, which cost the princely sum of £3.40 – I can’t, and wont complain about that, it tasted delicious. I grabbed myself a seat beside the window and watched the tourists, wackjobs and Soho characters drifting past outside! By the time I left an hour later the pub had started to get a wee bit busier, there were about 20 people.
The Duke of Argyll in my opinion is a good, honest pub for a relaxing Saturday afternoon ale. Located only 2 minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of Shaftesbury Avenue it is the perfect pub from which to escape for a breather if you are in the area, and in need of some liquid refreshment… I will be back!
