This week's featured article is Princess Louise, WC1V 7EP, a Sam Smith's pub in Holborn.

It has an interesting interior, including panelling that creates multiple separate compartments around the bar for extra privacy (and extra difficulty of getting in at peak times). Apparently the gents' toilets are quite a dramatic sight too, though I haven't seen them due to not being allowed in there.


Recent additions to RGL include Mai Sushi, a small Japanese restaurant near the British Library, and the Bun House, a locals' pub on Peckham High Street.

Reported closures are Hog In The Pound just off Oxford Street (probably being turned into shops), Bermondsey Kitchen (turned into José Pizarro's new restaurant, Pizarro), and the Brook in Hammersmith (been taken over by the people behind the Bree Louise, will be reopening this autumn as the Duchess of Cambridge).
