Sorry guys - I did mean the George & Vulture - i.e. the restaurant not the Horse & Groom (which I had recently been in and confused the name!)

If anybody is after Cask near the west end, The Blue Posts has it, as does Chandos, The Cock, Fitzroy and Lyceum.

Can't wait to visit this place, one of the only Sam Smiths in London that I haven't had the pleasure of visiting.

Does anybody know why they don't have draught beer?

As I keep boring people with my problem with beer prices I just hope he doesn't but them up every year as the uniqueness of the Brewery will disappear.

The uniqueness of the brewery, by that do you mean, treating his staff like trash in the street and paying a minimum wage to keep your thirst happily quenched. I'd rather pay a little bit more and see staff members treated with the decency and dignity they deserve.
I agree he a bit of a git towards his staff but I like his pub's and having been drinking in them for over 30 year's and yes the stout and best bitter happily quenches my thirst.
If you don't like SS then why are you posting on a SS forum.

Thinking about the changing management teams it makes me wonder if the idea is that by continually changing staff pay and conditions are kept to a minimum.  I don't know what the t&c's are but business leaders have been known to increase staff turnover to reduce incremental payments, bonus and pension costs.  I am convinced SS believe they can do this because the customers will continue to visit no matter what.

Bang on regards, customers will visit no matter what.
 I live next door to one of the pubs, the company are truly awful to deal with, Humphrey has treat friends of mine in very unethical ways, and I refuse to go into his establishments. There are many people who are happy to support his ways due to the cheap cost of his ale.
It really does make me laugh to see people sat at his bar saying "Humphrey Smith is an awful person, I'd never work for him, yes that's 3 Taddy lagers and a sovereign bitter please".
 May aswell just say here Humphrey, I'll give you 8.00 to carry on as you are doing.
