What's The Best Pub In Chelsea?

What's The Best Pub In Chelsea?


Our monthly pub poll heads west.

Every month, we ask readers to vote for their favourite pubs in a particular part of town, then we follow up with a pub crawl round the winning venues. The results are enshrined in our ever-growing Best Pubs In London microsite.

We've yet to venture out to Chelsea. Among London's richest areas, SW3 isn't always associated with great pubs, but there are a few. Where are they, and which ones are the best? We need you to tell us your favourite pubs in the area.

Here’s how to play:

  1. Let us know (in the comments below, on Facebook, or by tweeting #BestChelseaPub) your favourite pubs in the area.
  2. We’ll tally up the votes on Wednesday lunchtime and publish the results.
  3. We’ll then arrange a pub crawl around the most popular choices. You’re welcome to join us.
  4. You can nominate anywhere that might generally be considered Chelsea. We’re not going to define a boundary — just use common sense.
  5. By ‘pubs’, we’re using a shorthand — you can also vote for bars with some kind of pubbish character.
  6. You can nominate more than one place. All nominations count as one vote, whether you rank them or not. Likes on Facebook and retweets of someone else’s vote are also counted as new votes.
  7. Venues should be open to the public with no pre-booking, entry fee or membership required.

So, where shall we go?

I quite like the Chelsea Potter. It's not to everyone's tastes, though.

Natalie Louise Gale

The Cadogan Arms on The Kings Road! Amazing food & great service.

Laura Tea

Love The Chelsea Potter Jimi Hendrix used to drink there so i'm in good company. Shame Henry J Beans has gone drank there since a teenager although an American chain had the most beautiful beer garden. Hopefully in time it will be another boozer and not flats.


The Admiral Codrington easily the best

Dave McDougall

Angelsea Arms.


The Fox & Hounds at Graham Terrace and Passmore Street, right on the Belgravia/Chelsea border. Lovely traditional and very small pub, with an interesting mix of regulars. You must love (large) dogs. The landlady has three very big Alsatians who have the run of the place.

Bermondsey James

The Pig's Ear - the only pub in London to sell the beer brewed by my uncle (Uley Brewery, Gloucestershire)!

The sydney arms
