The good pub guide review
In a quiet street midway between Chelsea Embankment and the Kings Road, this gently civilised, bright Chelsea pub is popular with a lively crowd of customers for both the up-to-date food and good choice of drinks. The central counter has bar areas to each side with simple furnishings: distressed panelled walls, some exposed brickwork, a couple of open fires, framed tobacco postcards and display cases of butterflies, tankards on a rack, mirrors, industrial-style ceiling lights, and a mix of cushioned wooden dining chairs and wheelbacks around scrubbed tables on bare boards and stools against the counter. Friendly staff serve ales from Brakspears, Sambrooks, Trumans and Youngs on handpump, eight wines by the glass and 18 whiskies; background music. At the back, the airy conservatory-style dining room has button-back wall seating and similar chairs and tables.
