1 Evershed Walk, 119 Acton Lane
Street corner pub dating from 1871, which retains a local drinking character despite the addition of a well-regarded gastropub area into part of the original garden – still one of the best pub gardens in West London. The ever-present Timothy Taylors Landlord is joined by St Austell Tribute. The pub exterior regularly appeared in a 1980s sitcom, and familiar faces from current TV can often now be seen. From 'Acton's Pubs and Inns (1989) : "At the Acton Green end of Acton Lane, the lane takes a sharp right turn and then a left turn round an old field boundary. On the corner of this last turn stands the Swan. Acton Lane is an ancient way and there was a cluster of cottages here in early days. The pub is however first recorded in 1871 when the publican was James Brown who owned the house when it passed to the Phoenix Brewery, Latimer Road. The area around that part of Acton Lane was built up rapidly during that period. The pub passed to the Law Guarantee Trust and in 1909 to Charringtons. It survived the rebuilding in the area, was renovated and added to ; although the original house can still be seen. It still retains its original garden and some of the trees." It is rumoured that the pub survived demolition in the 1970s as part of the building of the Beaconsfield Road Council Estate next door because the then Leader of the Council was a regular there.

47 Shirley Road
The Cricketers was taken over in July 2017 by new leaseholders, who have done a great job in revamping the pub, deep cleaning everything, putting in new flooring and some new furniture and installing six new handpumps. They are starting with three hand pumped beers to revive custom which had dropped away almost completely. This is still a traditional community pub where all are welcome. Real fires will contribute towards the comfortable, lived-in atmosphere in the winter. Live music will be reinstated when custom demands. There are four TVs in the main bar showing different sports; televised sport has always been a great attraction particularly when Crystal Palace matches are televised. Darts is also played competitively in the pub.

136 Battersea High Street
After eight months' closure, this pub was reopened on 1 November 2012 by new owners InnBrighton, now the Laine Pub Company. A complete internal makeover incorporates the old kitchen as trade space and a lot of work has gone into the garden, with smoking shelters back and front. The new upstairs kitchen was once a meeting/function room and the top floor is the manager’s domestic accommodation. Cask beer was discontinued in 2021 owing to lack of demand but returned in March 2023. The pub was suddenly taken over in September from Laine's by Smok'd, who run the Britannia, SE1 and the Greyhound in Kingston. Like them, a 'modern British barbecue restaurant' it was initially described to a CAMRA visitor as free of tie, with a commitment to cask beer and the promise of local favourites, but now finds its ambitions frustrated by contractual supply restrictions severely limiting its choice of cask ales.

This 'public house & dining rooms' successfully avoids the identikit feel of many gastropubs, with red, green and cream décor complemented by modern art posters.

TV sports are silent but the staff are happy to put the volume on if most people want it (especially for the rugby). Formerly Draft House Westbridge, Matilda, Blue Mango, Pig on the Bridge, a restaurant and previously Bridge, originally Prodigals Return. Renamed by BrewDog in April 2021.

Hall & Woodhouse had recently wanted to sell the Woodman and vacated and closed it in August 2023. However, a petition at https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/save-the-woodman-battersea gathered many signatures - this was the only pub left in Battersea High Street after the Castle had been demolished and the Quecumbar (Original Woodman) closed - and the pub reopened on 26 October, initially without the food provision, attractively refurbished.

Bayswater is a corruption of Bayard's Watering, the chief spring of the district situated near Queensway and from which in 1439 a conduit was built to supply the City of London with water. Now the eponymous pub is an air-conditioned haven from the bustle of Queensway. Faux Victorian interior, with dark wall coverings sporting framed photographs of local Edwardian street scenes and the area's well-known former residents, contrasts with the 60s block in which this pub occupies the corner. Plenty of tables on a mixture of carpeted and painted wooden floors and a menu of pub-grub food attract in tourists and other passing trade as well as the regulars. Note that the licence does not allow sale of alcohol before 10am Monday to Saturday or noon on Sunday.

47 Hereford Road
Following a period as Pomona's, this site reopened in March 2022 with its original name, the Princess Royal. The present incarnation, as part of the small Cubitt House chain of London pubs, is very much food, wine and cocktail focussed, but with a range of keg beers and three real ales. The refurbishment during the prior closure included some restoration of original features, including the exposure of the pub name mosaic in the entrance porch. The premises are now expensively furnished and offer elegant and comfortable facilities inside and outside for drinkers and diners alike. Upholstered stools flank the solid wooden horse-shoe bar with original tiles and polished timber flooring, red arm chairs fill the window and variously-sized tables are close by, affording ample space for drinkers inside or outside the pleasant front terrace. Bar or table service is provided by charming and helpful uniformed staff.
The most memorable feature of the pub is the adjoining large outdoor dining area with some 120-plus covers. Huge trees stand among the tables and flower beds surround the periphery. Tables and chairs are cast iron with dark green woodwork and other decorative materials, all of the highest quality. This must be one of the most attractive dining rooms in London and indeed the whole pub has been described in The Times as "one of the most magnificent, sprawling, elegant and beautiful pubs imaginable". Food service starts with breakfast and there is an interesting Mediterranean-inspired menu for lunch and in the evening. Wines in a high-end list are surprisingly not arranged by country of origin, but by style. Bar snacks include such favourites as fried pizzas with truffle and nduja on fennel biscuits.
Note that alcohol may not be sold before 10am Monday to Saturday or noon on Sundays.

Re-opened on 22nd September 2023 under a new name "Erin's" as an AK Whelan pub after a £750,000 makeover. Named after the owner's daughter, the theme is that of a modern Irish pub with mirrors, bric-a-bric and a dark blue, maroon and gold colour scheme to create what is described as "an opulent effect" along with a striking mural and hanging garden from the ceiling. In the evening, the subdued lighting gives a more intimate atmosphere.
The central island bar has an illuminated glass shelf overhead, with several partitioned areas leading off. There is a mixture of seating and tables, with softer seating in some areas along with a raised section at the rear for music events and other entertainment.

A friendly traditional local popular with a mixed clientele of all ages for its homely convivial atmosphere and welcoming to visitors. Situated in a quiet street in a conservation area off the main road, this retains the look and feel of a country pub. Built in 1840 as an ale house, this would once have been surrounded by countryside. The front room is small with half-height matchboard panelling, old fixed bench seating and a drinking shelf along with leaded glass in the windows and a stove. The door to the right was once used for off-sales. The bar itself has tongue and groove panelling with a plain and well-worn counter. An opening leads to a larger back room, also with panelling, in an L-shaped configuration created in the 1970s. Toilets are outside across the courtyard.
A small paved courtyard is at the rear with several table sets and benches, plus a modern retractable canopy which is employed in inclement weather. The outbuilding at the end is used to store the beer and is believed to have once been stables. A small area out front has further benches plus seats to one side.
The cask ales are from Harvey's and Timothy Taylor with a couple of guests.

Locals had started a petition against this change, attracting more than 1,000 signatures in the first day, then passing 2,000 soon afterwards. Formerly part of the Fielder & Co brewery buildings, this small, traditional local has a few historic framed photos of the local area in the bar and a well in the courtyard at the rear. There are hanging baskets of flowers outside the pub.

- Grosvenor Arms
17 Sidney Road
A modern craft beer bar with 25 taps including Affinity cask beer brewed on the premises, and two ciders. Opened on 22 March 2019, leased from Golfrate by Tom, the licensee at the Priory Arms a mile northwards. Fresh pizza served daily til 10pm. Formerly the Grosvenor for a few years, this mid-Victorian two bar corner pub had an impressive 1898 function room at the rear staging live music four or five times a week. It was a thriving community local sustained by an energetic and enthusiastic leaseholder whose efforts secured the long awaited reinstatement of real ale in 2009. Closed on 31 July 2014 and boarded up with a view to residential conversion above, it was granted Asset of Community Value status by Lambeth Council in August 2015 after a successful campaign by local residents, the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) and local councillors. Golfrate had taken over from Punch in 2013 but Hamna Wakaf emerged as the owner fighting the ACV, which remained applicable to the ground floor and cellar only following a First-tier Tribunal hearing in May 2016. Residential conversion above and around was finally allowed by the Planning Inspectorate shamefully overruling Lambeth Councillors' refusal of successive planning applications.

At present, the real ale selection is limited to just one, usually from the Bexley Brewery.

On Mondays there is a 2 for the price of one offer for pizza. The pub itself is rather larger and more spacious than one would guess from the exterior.

This Greene King-owned pub is sited in a quiet road on the borders of Bromley North and Sundridge Park. ‘Prince Frederick’ is unique as a British pub name and commemorates the eldest son of George II. Although the prince died in 1751 the present building is of the Victorian era. It was revamped in the 1930s to provide two bars at the front, but the partition between the bars has been removed and the front bar is now one open plan area. At one time there must have been an off-sales compartment between the two parts, as indicated by the double doorway at the front of the building. There is also a back bar, distinct in its 1930s design, with a glazed advertising pane.

6 Chatterton Road
This new venue opened its doors for the first time on October 10th, 2022, in premises which were previously occupied by a computer repair and sales shop. It described itself thus: A cafe by day, a microbar by night. Pop in for locally roasted coffee and cake or a cask ale or local gin. The name is taken from a pub which existed in the road in the 19th century, the exact location of which is not known.
The new cafe/bar certainly offers a welcome new addition to the Chatterton Village area, especially for cask ale drinkers.
The venue is rather larger than the limited frontage would indicate, and there is plenty of seating on high benches and chairs. The décor is bold and modern with wooden flooring throughout. It includes a large David Bowie mural. Cask ales are served from a cold room at the rear, with various keg offerings including lager and cider also available.
Alcoholic drinks are served from 12 noon onwards.

moc.sbupebmoctub@notgnirdoclarimda(020) 7581 0005
17 Mossop Street
Known locally as "the Cod", popular with tourists and recommended in the Sloane Ranger Handbook. High ceilinged wood-panelled bar with the old cocktail bar now turned into a restaurant. Licensed in 1830 as a beer house and rebuilt in the 1860s because of railway tunnelling between South Kensington and Sloane Square. Named after the naval officer who captained the 98 gun ‘Orion’ at the Battle of Trafalgar and later, as Vice-Admiral of the Blue, led the fleet which defeated the Turks at Navarino in 1827. Listed in the Estrella Damm top 100 gastropub awards 2022. The ale range given here may be out of date and now be Butcombe Brewery, further updates welcome.
- Builders Arms
ku.oc.aeslehcsmrasredliubeht@ofni(020) 7349 9040
13 Britten Street
Built to serve the needs of masons and workmen employed in the construction of St. Luke's church opposite, erected 1820-24, it later served as the tap for Matthews & Cannings Anchor Brewery which stood next door. The brewery was taken over by Whitbread in 1899 with brewing continuing until 1907. Now it is a modernised, trendy but friendly venue with separate areas: the Nook, the Dining Room and the Bar. Sofas and comfortable seating and some quirky decor such as gold pineapple wall lights. Three real ales and an extensive food menu. This venue is now part of the small Cubitt House chain.
- Butcher's Tap & Grill
25-27 Tryon Street
Closed for seven years, this 3,600sq ft, two-storey 1840-build pub site finally reopened in December 2023, the second to open under the Tom Kerridge Butcher’s Tap & Grill concept. This is his third London site and follows Kerridge's Bar & Grill at the Corinthia hotel in Whitehall, and Kerridge's Fish & Chips at Harrods' dining hall.
Following very substantial refurb work, the ground-floor pub features a focal hardwood bar, chestnut leather booth seating and a bespoke timber staircase. The restaurant area is downstairs with an open plan kitchen equipped with meat-ageing fridges.
The menu at Butcher's Tap & Grill Chelsea offers a selection of British-centric butcher-cuts, burgers, hot dogs and small bites, such as grass-fed beef rom HG Walter and Dovecote Farm and Longland Farm duck. The pub is open for lunch and dinner and serves a Sunday roast; as well as takeaway services. Kids eat free Monday - Thursday 3-5pm.
Kerridge has said: "We very much want to be a local's local, somewhere to pop in, have a pint, watch some sport have a bite and relax. We will also be dog friendly so well behaved four legged friends are very welcome too!"
There are three ale handpumps serving fairly low-ABV session beers at date of this entry. Further updates welcome.
- Cadogan Arms
nodnol.smranagodaceht@sgnikoob(020) 3148 2630
298 Kings Road
After extensive refurbishment, this pub finally reopened in July 2021 by a joint venture between JKS Partners and Dominic Jacobs, the man behind The Running Horse pub in Mayfair. The pub "will showcase exclusive beers, cask and craft ales alongside an extensive wine list and contemporary cocktails". Food includes Sunday roasts. Four cask ale handpumps feature three rotating semi-regulars and a guest ale. On keg there is Guinness and a cider plus another dozen or so lagers and other beers.
Dating back to the 17th century when it was the Rose and Crown and built shortly after the King’s Road became a public thoroughfare, the name was changed to the Cadogan in 1838 when it was rebuilt. The pub retains some interesting architectural features: note the red pilaster surrounds with Corinthian capitals. Sister pub to the George in Fitzrovia.
- Chelsea Arts Club
moc.bulcstraaeslehc@noitpecer(020) 7376 3311
143-145 Old Church Street
Founded in 1891 at the instigation of the artist Whistler, as a rival to the older Arts Club. The club when formed was intentionally bohemian in character and remains true to its roots. There is no dress code. It promotes social intercourse amongst its members and helps promote their artistic work. The Chelsea Arts Club ball was a famous fixture at the Albert Hall in the first half of the twentieth century, eventually banned due to riotous behaviour; footage of some of the balls may be seen on old British Pathe newsreels. Nowadays the Club serves as a host for various events including of course visual arts exhibitions as well as musical performances including live jazz, and literary talks. The clubhouse is normally white but may be painted for special events, see example in this entry; it includes a dining room, bar, snooker room and some bedrooms. The rooms are lined with art by members past and present. Club membership is between three and four thousand drawn mainly from the creative and artistic worlds; there is a waiting list for new members. If you are lucky enough to be invited in, food is stated to be moderately priced. Confirmed by a member as offering real ale.
- Chelsea Pensioners' Club
Royal Hospital Road
There are three large, comfortable rooms and a "clubby" atmosphere. Regimental plaques and military paintings adorn the walls and there is even a proper pub sign! Although parts of the Royal Hospital (in which the Club stands) are open to the public - and a visit to this Wren-designed complex is recommended - the Club is open only to Chelsea Pensioners and their guests; CPs get discounted prices. Note the unusual (unique?) double-slotted pillar box at the London Gate.
- Chelsea Potter
ku.oc.gnikeneerg@3717(020) 7352 9479
119 Kings Road
Built as a beer house in 1843 and enlarged in the 1890s, this pub was called the Commercial Tavern until 1956 when it was renamed after William de Morgan, founder of the nearby Chelsea Pottery. Note the attractive canted bay window and the glazing bar divided windows along the Radnor Walk frontage, adorned with hanging baskets, where the outside tables are available. Inside, now a comfortable one bar pub, its high ceiling supported on slender scroll-topped columns, is furnished with a mixture of high and low tables, chairs and stools. A bare boarded floor, plenty of carved wood and a variety of mirrors add to the atmosphere. A pub-grub menu is offered. Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones are reputed to have once been customers; now it attracts a passing trade as well as the local regulars. Two regular ales from the GK stable are normally on offer, with a third handpump often used for cider.
- Chelsea Ram
ku.oc.sgnuoy@maraeslehc(020) 7351 4008
32 Burnaby Street
Built in 1887 as the Ashburnham Arms by the Royal Chelsea Brewery on a provisional licence which, unfortunately for the brewery, was not confirmed by the Middlesex licensing justices. The premises remained vacant until 1892 when it was occupied by the St John's Ashburnham Institute. It eventually became licensed in 1984 when it was bought by Young’s; it is located near the former Lots Road Power Station and Auction Rooms. Refurbished by Young's with a light and spacious gastro-pub ambience, it has not lost its original community atmosphere. The pub is split into a main bar area and a large dining room to the rear; there are distinctive arched windows with the Ram symbol etched in the glass. The staff show commitment to beer quality plus an emphasis on good food availability, including daily specials.
- Coopers Arms
ku.oc.sgnuoy@smrasrepooc(020) 7376 3120
87 Flood Street
The original Coopers Arms, licensed in 1831 as a beer house, was demolished in 1874 and rebuilt forty feet south of its original position to allow for the extension of Redsdale Street into Queen Street (as Flood Street was then called). The fine decorative frontage of London Brick and, above ground-floor level, the attractive architrave window surrounds with moulded cornice hoods and pediments, are all noteworthy. Today, this popular pub, half-way between the King's Road and the Embankment, is one of just two in Chelsea tied to Young’s. The spacious 'L'-shaped area around the bar is furnished with comfortable chairs and tables. Six handpumps presently dispense a choice of two or three real ales; the range may expand, further updates welcome. An interesting menu offers good food at reasonable prices for the area. The only Master Cooper left in the country is now Alastair Simms at the White Rose Cooperage, but the tradition will carry on as, in 2016, Kean Hiscock signed his indentures as an apprentice cooper for this ancient trade.
- Cross Keys
moc.sbupebmoctub@syekssorc(020) 7351 0686
1 Lawrence Street
Following one of the hardest-fought battles in London to save a pub from developers and with, at one point, squatters in the pub, a long lease on the ground floor and basement of the building was granted by Parsons Green Land to the the DM Group, who, following an extensive refit, as most original fittings were destroyed, reopened the pub in 2015. Today's Cross Keys is primarily a gastropub, but, as well as the tables laid for diners at the rear, there is plenty of space at the front of the pub for drinkers. The decor is dominated by bare brick walls, some half-height panelled and others decorated with stripped pre-used wooden doors and large wooden shutters (said to be from a Portuguese asylum!). The back wall is cleverly mirrored to reflect light from the skylight above. As well as bar stools at a plain oak bar, there is a mixture of types of dining tables and chairs. As well as a full menu at meal times, bar snacks, including Scotch eggs, sausage rolls and Welsh rarebit, are available all day. Prices reflect the location. The ale range given here may have changed to Butcombe Brewery, further updates welcome.
(020) 7352 9505
153 Dovehouse Street
Small, corner local off the Fulham Road, close to the Royal Marsden Hospital, described as the last traditional locals' boozer left in Chelsea. Poker night on Mondays! Darts knockout every Tuesday, a gallon of beer for the winner! Up to three real ales in normal times but as at end of 2021 only one was reported. Serves Thai food and pub classics including weekend roasts.
- Fox & Pheasant
moc.tnasaehpdnaxofeht@seiriuqne(020) 7352 2943
1 Billing Road
Under new ownership (so saved from possible redevelopment) and sensitively refurbished and extended during a fifteen month closure, the Fox & Pheasant re-opened in lmid-2018, welcoming back drinkers and diners to a quintessentially British and charmingly vibrant country pub on the Chelsea-Fulham border.
The two original bars were restored to their original appearance; an olive tree-filled conservatory (with a retractable roof for summer) was added at the rear; and, on the second floor, a secluded, wood-panelled private dining room that seats up to 22 was created. Once inside, you could be excused for thinking that you were in a rural setting instead of just a few yards from the busy Fulham Road and close to Chelsea football ground! You enter a small lobby with an off-sales hatch to the servery and doors to the former public bar, to the left, and the larger saloon bar on the right. The interior is a typical modest pub-fitting from between the wars, now quite rare, albeit more comfortably furnished for the twenty-first century. Owner James Blunt has been quoted as saying "The pub is my favourite place in the world. It brings strangers together in a world where politicans want to separate us..."
The pub offers three real ales which change from time to time; a small range of keg and bottled beers and ciders; and a well-selected wine list and the inevitable cocktails. Whilst the pub still firmly caters for drinkers, for those who wish to eat the pub’s dining experience claims to champion British produce and to be founded on seasonal, sustainable and locally sourced ingredients, all under the care of a Gordon Ramsay-trained head chef. Whilst the kitchen has a break in the late afternoon (except on Sundays), bar snacks are available all day and include classics such as scotch eggs and sausage rolls, alongside more original dishes like buttermilk fried rabbit or sticky pork tacos.
Note that the pub is in a gated private road which contrives with the double-yellow lines on the adjacent public highway to make parking nearby very difficult. If you choose to get here via West Brompton station, there is an interesting "rural route" south through the Victorian cemetery (which closes an hour or so before dusk).
- Hollywood Arms
ku.oc.sgnuoy@smradoowylloh(020) 7349 7840
45 Hollywood Road
Up-market side street local built in 1865 (1856 notice on pub’s front is wrong) probably by the Godwins according to Pevsner, although the local council gives the builders as Corbett & McClymont. Grade II listed building. Now an elegant, airy modern style pub following "refurbishment"; but at least the refurb left some etched and cut glass at the front of the pub. At the back of the pub, the tabloid press has reported a "secret entrance" used by VIPs! Fresh & seasonal food is prepared in-house daily and includes Sunday roasts. For events see pub website. As at the last feedback it was reported that only one ale was on offer. Further updates welcome.
- Hunter's Moon
86 Fulham Road
Following various ups and downs (see the Historic Interest section) this site reopened in late 2019 as Hunter's Moon, the debut site of the Lunar Pub Company. The interiors are rustic-chic, featuring oak and vintage tile flooring, textured walls and ceilings, leather seating, pendant lighting and antique mirrors. There is a dining room at the back seating 48 and a small pub at the front seating 25. Pub grub at the front includes scotch eggs, sausage rolls and courgette and ricotta croquettes plus oysters and charcuterie. The dining room offers a modern European menu changing daily, and the venue is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner including Saturday brunch and Sunday roasts. The restaurant has attracted good reviews since opening and its prices reflect the local area. Two real ales are reported to be on offer including, very unusually for London, Butty Bach from Wye Valley Brewery.
- Kings Arms
ku.oc.sgnuoy@smrasgnik(020) 7351 5643
190 Fulham Road
Striking combination of old and new. Built in 1861 by Bayswater builder Edwin Curtis; not a listed building but it has remarkable interior tilework and typical Geronimo "shabby-chic" decor. Up to three real ales in normal times.
- Lots Road
ku.oc.aeslehcdaorstol@olleh(020) 7352 6645
114 Lots Road
Part of the small London-based Market Taverns chain, this is a modern gastro-pub with a food menu including pub favourites and Sunday roasts. Takeways are also available. At least two real ales are normally on. Very convenient for the Chelsea Harbour complex and marina, and the northside Thames Path.
moc.enehpeht@ofni(020) 7352 9898
9 Phene Street
The Phene (pronounced 'Feeny') is located in a leafy Chelsea backwater, roughly halfway between Kings Road and the Chelsea Embankment. Built in 1853 (along with the rest of the street) by Dr John Samuel Phene, a wealthy and eccentric landowner - he is credited with initiating the idea of planting trees in city streets - the pub is considered architecturally unusual by being attached to a "terrace" of just one house on Phene Street. Today it is a high-end gastropub decorated in minimalist light grey, a clubhouse-style venue housing a traditional saloon bar with bright red banquettes and a stripped wooden floor, a conservatory restaurant at the back and a lounge on the first-floor. The extensive heated terrace to the side is complete with comfortable sofas, outdoor fireplaces and quirky hanging basket chairs. All as seen in the BAFTA award-winning, structured-reality television series "Made in Chelsea". Expect to pay Chelsea prices. Apart from the champagnes, wines and cocktails, the drink offerings include two handpumps for real ale, a number of taps dispensing craft/keg mostly local beers and a good range of local London-brewery bottled beers. The food menu is very tempting indeed, despite being at prices to be expected of the locale. It is reported that this venue does not accept cash.
ku.oc.sgnuoy@xineohp(020) 7730 9182
23 Smith Street
Apart from some patched-up twentieth-century exterior brick work, this appears to be the original tavern that was built and licensed in 1794/5, making this the oldest surviving pub in Chelsea. Now more of a gastropub than an old-fashioned boozer but pleasant all the same, deep in the heart of Chelsea, with three cask beers and a friendly atmosphere. Very handy for the Royal Hospital (and its Chelsea Pensioners) and the National Army Museum.

6 Camera Place
Rebuilt in 1974 as the Red Anchor on the site of the Odell Arms (1856-1971) and renamed in 1989, a vestige of the Victorian era remains in the salvaged Victorian lamp over the door of this pub in the back streets between the Fulham Road and the Embankment. Now part of the small London-based Market Taverns chain, it has become a comfortable one bar pub with a friendly feel. Three handpumps offer a choice of up to three real ales, often including some from London breweries. Sporting themed prints and memorabilia adorn the walls. Keep an eye on the pub website for offers.
ku.oc.aeslehc-esirpruseht@ofni(020) 3837 4600
6 Christchurch Terrace
A delightful Surprise this pub indeed is, hidden away, as it is, in the backstreets of Chelsea, though its name originates from that of the ship that bore Napoleon's body back to France in 1820. Reopened post-Covid and now leased to Jack Greenall, a scion of the Greenall Whitley brewing family. The pub features a bar and 28-cover restaurant area plus a private dining room, the Hamilton. Both lunch and dinner can be taken in the bar area or the restaurant. The general manager had previously been at the Harwood Arms in Fulham and the chef comes from the Rabbit in Chelsea. The interior design has been described by The Times as "like I imagine the boot room at Chatsworth to be, or Jacob Rees-Mogg’s fifth-best reception room"! Four ales at date of survey, including a Ringwood house-branded ale. Prices reflect the area.
- Sydney Arms
(020) 7352 7924
70 Sydney Street
An independently-owned corner pub just off the Kings Road near Chelsea Town Hall and the lovely St Luke's church, one of the earliest Gothic Revival churches in London. The venue promotes itself as "London's racing pub" and there is live sporting action on 5 screens. As at late 2022 it was reported that this venue is card/contactless only.
- Admiral Codrington moc.sbupebmoctub@notgnirdoclarimda(020) 7581 0005 17 Mossop Street Chelsea SW3 2LY
There has been a building on this site since the 14th century when a farmhouse was constructed, and the pub website has much information about its history. Today it is a cosy pub restaurant with several different rooms with low ceilings and an Inglenook fireplace. It is very convenient for Junction 4 of the M25, and parking is available. The menu varies to include seasonal specialities.
Unfortunately, in July 2022, the R7 bus route which used to pass close to the pub was re-routed and no longer does so. So there is no convenient access by public transport any more. The alternatives are a walk of about 1200 metres from the centre of Chelsfield or a longer walk of about 1700 metres from Knockholt station, which is in zone 6. For those interested in walking please consult the Pub Walks section of the Bromley CAMRA website and refer to routes 26 and 27. The link is below.
1 Windsor Drive
Large pub conveniently situated for both Chelsfield main line rail station and the local R1 bus route. Having survived threatened demolition in the late 2010s, the pub has now been extensively (and expensively) renovated during the Covid lockdown, and is now back to its best. Cask ale remains well-represented with the two regular beers being augmented by a guest, usually from a small local brewery, and plans for a fourth handpump to be put into operation
The refurbishment has seen wholesale changes. All carpeting has been removed, replaced by floor tiling around the bar and oak flooring elsewhere. The interior seating now includes benches and some high tables. As before, the Georgian style windows admit plenty of light. There is a selection of old photographs of the neighbourhood on the walls.
Outside the area in front of the pub now includes much improved seating. There is a patio area to the rear, where the garden is currently being brought back to life.
There are large rooms at each end of the main bar, one is now used as a restaurant whilst the other can potentially be used for functions. Dogs are welcome in the pub provided they are kept well clear of the restaurant area.
- Chelsfield Lakes Golf Centre
This modern Golf Centre bar is open to everyone - there is no necessity to play a round of golf. For details of the golf facilities please use the website linked on this page.
The bar is very spacious and comfortable with seats and tables throughout, and there is also plenty of seating outside. The centre is on high ground and the huge ceiling to floor windows offer views over the course and the countryside beyond.
The nearest railway station is Knockholt - however the footpath from the station - although a pleasant walk in fine weather - can be muddy in rainy periods. From Chelsfield station the walk is on pavements throughout.
- Five Bells
Situated in an unspoilt 17th century village, this welcoming pub was the local CAMRA 2010 pub of the year. Small local breweries often feature amongst the guest beers, which in summer sometimes includes a cask on gravity in the public bar. Beer festivals are held at Easter and in October
The R7 bus service from Chislehurst via Bickley, Petts Wood and Orpington now runs half-hourly for most of the day. The pub is located very close to junction 4 of the M25 - but just far enough away to avoid any motorway noise, allowing it to retain its rural feel.
The large garden includes a play area for children.

Following the Covid closure, the pub reopened under its old name - The Bickley Arms. This large pub - which is operated by Young's following their takeover of Redcomb pubs - is close to Chislehurst caves, and benefits from a substantial garden and function rooms. A restaurant area - smaller than before - has been retained, but casual drinkers are welcomed. New survey pending.

The Bull's Head was originally a coaching inn with rooms for travellers and was a small hotel when bought by Young's in 1931. It was hit by bombs in 1945 but was quickly reopened.
Today it remains a hotel with 15 guest rooms, but also boasts 3 bars (all open to the public) - each with their own atmosphere and character. The main bar area is family friendly and shows all the major sporting events. The Lounge Bar is like taking a step back in time to the days of the old fashioned traditional snug bar, with wing back chairs, roaring fire and quirky ornaments.
There is a sizeable garden to the rear with wooden benches.

4 Royal Parade
The Cockpit is Chislehurst's first micropub, and opened its doors for the first time in late December 2020, unfortunately with the Covid crisis in full swing. It was able to begin operating more normally the following summer as lockdown eased. A choice of real ales from small breweries from all over the country is available. Bar snacks are available.
The premises - which are deceptively spacious given the limited frontage - are shared with a florist but even so there is more seating than normal in a micropub, with further benches outside at the front of the pub.
The pub is named after the ancient Cockpit which is situated a few minutes walk away on Chislehurst Common (see picture).

The subsequent alterations and extensions include a conservatory built in the 1980's. Although the pub has a focus on food, casual drinkers are also welcome.

- Tigers Head
ku.oc.gnikeneerg@9426(020) 8467 3070
Nowadays, the Tigers Head is more an upmarket restaurant than a pub - however casual drinkers are more than welcome to enjoy the pub and the beer garden which enjoys views over Chislehurst Common and the village church. There was an inn on the site as far back as the 15th century, but the current building is far more recent.

The downstairs has now become a restaurant with locally-sourced seafood a speciality. The upstairs at street level is the bar, with a good selection of six rotating real ales and a cider; the ales include an own-label Argy Bargy and it is intended to change beers on a regular basis and also support craft breweries. Beers are served in old style pint pots which adds to the enjoyment! The Ale Manager is knowledgable and helpful, and can suggest good pairings of ales and food. Service and staff friendliness have received good reviews. Function room and WCs are on the uppermost level and there is a nice garden at the back of the pub, with outside tables on the river side.

Called the George until 1823, when it was renamed to avoid confusion with the George IV in Chiswick High Road. One of the brewery’s oldest tied houses, having been bought in 1701, along with two cottages, for £70. Dick Turpin is said to have drunk here before his ride to York. This Grade II-listed pub just off the Hogarth roundabout, with its flyover on the A4, parades its rich local history within the Old Chiswick area on a board on the front.

- Old Pack Horse
ku.oc.srelluf@esrohkcapdlo(020) 8994 2872
434 Chiswick High Road
There has been a pub on this site for a long time, and "Ye Pack Hors in Turnam Greene" was mentioned on a trader's token of 1669 used in lieu of money. It was called the Lower Packhorse until 1812 (cf. Packhorse & Talbot a few hundred yards east). This is now a Grade II-listed corner pub last rebuilt around 1910 by the great pub architect Nowell Parr. Refurbished recently, it has a beautiful frontage often featured in local photographs, and a view across Turnham Green. With ornate woodwork and glasswork including some stained glass panels, it is one of London’s Real Heritage Pubs. Five drinking areas include a snug, and a Thai restaurant towards the back which can also provide takeaway. Note the tiny inglenook snug bar with its leather banquettes. An illuminated bar sign refers to the long-gone Chiswick Empire, and walls display theatre memorabilia and Victorian bottles. The current manager hopes to expand to a fifth ale pump, and as well as the draught beers there is an increasingly adventurous range of keg beers. Bottled beers go up to a Belgian Chimay at 9% ABV! On Friday nights (late opening) there is a DJ from 9pm.
- Packhorse & Talbot
ku.oc.gnikeneerg@4227(020) 8994 0360
145 Chiswick High Road
Large, plush, well-lit and comfortable lounge bar refurbished in 2002. The rear patio beer garden makes it good for warm weather drinking. Named the Upper Packhorse until 1812; the present premises were rebuilt by Watneys in 1935. Note the unusual hollow pub sign. The name is believed to derive from the talbot, one of only two dogs used in heraldry (along with the the greyhound) as a companion to and guardian of the packhorse driver. Following a demolition notice posted by the landlord in summer 2014 Hounslow Council has now designated the surrounding area as the Chiswick High Road conservation area.

2 Bath Road
A pub that dates back to 1880 and was built as part of the Bedford Park estate, the first London garden suburb. It was welcomed in 1880 by the local journal, the Bedford Park Gazette, which expressed the hope that it would stop the sale of alcoholic liquors through other channels to the estate workmen building the new houses. The pub is Grade II*-listed and has now been registered with Hounslow Council as an Asset of Community Value, Hounslow ACV 001 and renewed 014. Notable interior features include tiling by William de Morgan and Walter Crane, and Arts & Crafts mirrors and pictures. The swing sign is based on the original painted by TM Rooke in 1880 and, amazingly, during refurbishment in 2016, the long-lost original sign was found again; it is hoped it can be conserved in due course. There are four distinct drinking areas (two bars, a dining area and a 'snug'), and ten hand pumps serve a cider (usually Westons Old Rosie) and regularly changing guest ales, sourced both nationally and locally. (If it is a hot spell the number of ciders may temporarily increase.) There is also a good range of unusual bottled beers, and keg craft beers such as Beavertown and Camden. Two-pint takeaway cartons are available. A comprehensive selection of board games are available. Evening live music on Sat. and a Wed. quiz are usually in the dining area. There is an article on chiswickw4.com about the relaunch of the upstairs theatre later in 2022.

The pub is renowned for live entertainment, with comedy, live music on Fridays and jazz on Sunday afternoons. There is also a quiz on Wednesday nights. The walls are adorned with photos of comedians, and there is plenty of comfortable seating to study them from. There is an extensive menu.

An oasis in an area that has become something of a pub graveyard as the loss of local waterside industry killed off passing trade.

A plaque commemorating Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee is on the front of the building.

43 The Broadway
Three room ex Ind Coope pub each one divided by a fireplace. Following a 2014 refurbishment the front bar has been removed. Still much wood and many large mirrors in evidence, there is now some bare brickwork and wood painted white with fake blotches. The white ceilings help give a brighter look. Lots of comfortable sofas and tables from low to high. The garden patio runs beside the pub and is partially covered and heated. Built in the early 1800's, it is locally listed as it "displays a very unusual design. Also its compact scale and eclectic detailing represent a novelty within the townscape of The Broadway."

13 St Marys Road
Known as Stage Six (Ealing Studios originally having five stages), the Red Lion was the watering hole of the good and the great of the British film industry during the Ealing Comedy era. The BBC followed with Z Cars, Porridge and Colditz along with many other classics. The pub’s interior is testament to this long association with photographs on several walls. More recently stars and production staff from Downton Abbey, Burke & Hare and BBC’s Let’s Dance for Sport Relief have been spotted on the premises. The original pub which preceded the current Victorian building provided discreet refreshment for the vicar of St Mary’s whose church was just along the road. The walled garden is ideal for larger parties in the summer and heated with braziers during the winter. The pub is now operated by the same management as the Andover Arms in Hammersmith.

Hidden by St Marys Church, this pub is much larger than it appears thanks to a conservatory extension, a covered smoking solution and a large garden. Recently redecorated with Penny Black wallpaper, there is still much wood panelling all over the pub. The main menu is all freshly prepared and has a Mediterranean feel with a variety of stone oven pizzas as well as daily changing specials. Photos from Old Ealing and notable locals adorn the walls and the windows contain stained glass. Films shown every Sunday from 8pm.

17 Hogarth Place
Friendly corner establishment, off the busy Earls Court Road, decorated in a modern style. Mainly floored in wood, with tiling around the bar area, the place is furnished with comfortable seating: high stools and tables, dining sets and some settees with low tables. A real fire is often lit in winter and the air conditioning switched on on those hotter summer days. Circa 17th century, this pub is the oldest surviving licensed premises in the area. Rebuilt in 1937, the building is stated by the local authority to contribute to the village atmosphere and to make a significant contribution to the character and appearance of the conservation area. It was bought by Fuller's from Faucet Inns in late April 2015 Of note are the unusual "postage-stamp" pub swing-signs, based on coinage designs of George V by Bertram Mackennel. Unlike the coins and stamps, the signs show His Majesty facing in both directions! The 1972 film, "The Adventures of Barry McKenzie" used the pub and the neighbouring "Kangaroo Valley" as locations. The kitchen remains open for dinner until late evening and Wednesdays are "Craft Beer and Wings Nights". Three Fuller's cask ales are joined by a guest, often from another local brewery.

Unspoilt basic backstreet boozer with very friendly mixed clientele, listed on CAMRA London Regional Inventory. Separate public bar, lounge, and small room containing a dartboard. Well worth seeking out, away from the horde of trendy cocktail/foody bars now swamping Earlsfield. Name reverted to Country House following demise of Jack Beard's but always known as the Fog, supposedly because homeward-bound rail commuters said they had been delayed by the atmospheric condition rather than being detained in this friendly establishment. Pleasantly refurbished in August 2017. It has two regular cask beers, and up to three other cask beers usually from local breweries. Food is not served, but customers are permitted to bring in their own food.

Built by Cannon Brewery in 1899, architects Shoebridge and Rising. Until 2016 when West Ham United Football Club’s stadium, the Boleyn Ground, closed. The pub was the centre of the universe on match days. Reopened in June 2021 after a spectacular £1.5 million restoration by Remarkable Pubs with the aim of making the interior look like it was when it first opened. New hand-crafted wooden screens have been created, complete with acid-etched and brilliant cut glass, replicating one of the original wood and glass panels in the old saloon bar. This means the original seven bar layout has been restored. The highlight is the massive coloured glass skylight that spans what once would have been a billiards room, but is now an open kitchen, servery and dining area. In September 2023 the pub was operating a "Beer Card" system whereby you get a beer card stamped when you buy a beer. When the card is full (9 stamps) you qualify for a free beer. This is open to all customers.

42 Christchurch Road
A traditional and very popular 18th century pub on the edge of the Royal Richmond park in what is known locally as Sheen Village. This picturesque, white-washed gastropub has a historic heritage. The ancient plough hanging outside the entrance is a relic of the time when the inn itself was a collection of farmers’ cottages, circa 1530. The ambiance is enhanced by Oak flooring, wall panels, polished oak bar and ideal lighting. An interesting feature is a little side room called 'The Snug' that is just big enough for four people around a table. The menu is gourmet pub grub. The pub is surrounded by a white fenced paved beer garden area with plenty of seating.
Fullers acquired the freehold on 27th Sept 2011.

It is claimed to be over 250 years old, and was two cottages with parts that were once police stables, becoming a pub in 1836. The building itself largely dates from that time. It is divided into two wood floored bar areas, while to the rear is a split level area used more for dining. There is a mixture of high and low, soft and wood seating. Regular quizzes and poker nights.

August 2023 - name changed to Brook Gate - from the Islington Tribune, "Sam Newson, publican since 2022, said: “Being called the Arsenal Tavern, whilst it’s nostalgic, doesn’t bring customers in – it alienates the majority of people. It gets its new name from the nearby waterway where fishermen once caught trout." For the full article go to
Closed suddenly in July 2019 but has now reopened. A recent visit (Nov 2021) shows that real ale has been reintroduced. At the bottom of the hill - needless to say, very busy on match days.

Card payment only here, cash not accepted.

73 Bovill Road
This is a friendly and unpretentious, cornersite backstreet pub, popular with the local community. The pub sign is a fairly plain affair that just says “The Nap”. Inside it’s carpeted throughout, with banquettes, metal framed tables and small stools providing the main furnishings, but of course with the obligatory tall stools at the bar. Rather unusually, there’s a bit of matchboard half-height wooden screening in the middle of the room that serves to screen off some of the seating from the main bar area. There are TVs; a dartboard near the corner door; a small garden at the back and a few benches outside at the front, plus free wi-fi advertised. Refurbished and reopened under new management in July 2022.

Re-opened after a refurbishment in October 2015, the first of the new Hippo Inns chain of managed pubs, a joint venture between Ei (formerly Enterprise Inns) and Rupert Clevely (founder of Geronimo Inns). The renaming from the Hob to the Signal harks back to its original name of the Railway Signal Hotel. A large, light and airy Victorian pub using mainly pastel shades of decoration, sitting on a high pavement opposite Forest Hill railway station, offering real ale, craft keg beers and an extensive wine list. Inside it is on three wooden floored levels with an L-shaped bar counter on the ground floor which is equipped with 3 handpumps. Upstairs is Georgi's Bar Rotisserie & Grill. Clearly a food orientated venue. To the right hand side is a paved and partly covered outside patio.

16 Seagrave Road
One of London's Real Heritage pubs and a classic pub to see what its owners, Trumans, were up to in the 1930s. The fittings are a surprisingly complete array from their inter-war refit including a black-and-white tiled spittoon. The counter-fronts have doors, a feature of many London pubs in times past, to allow servicing of the beer engines. The outside fabric of the pub is a 1950s rebuild following heavy WW2 bomb damage. The pub now promotes itself as an authentic London boozer; it is a pleasant enough one bar establishment, with wooden flooring and separate eating area offering a good selection of food and wines. One of the few London pubs with a walled courtyard garden which has now been considerably extended with a largish patio area as a result of the 'Lillie Square' development.

Originally a multi-room pub, but now knocked through with just the corner doors in use.

First licensed in 1830 and rebuilt in 1892, this venue had been thought permanently closed as a pub in January 2016 when it was sold by Greene King, with a stated restrictive clause that it not be run as a pub again. However it has now magically re-emerged as Brook House, a mix of restaurant, pub, and bar. It's run by Mark Dyer and Eamonn Manson, a duo who have already achieved success with three other local pubs. The venue is mainly laid out for diners but casual drinkers can obtain a drink at the bar and some space is available for them. The house ale is from Belhaven. There is an all-day food menu as well as specific lunch and dinner menus, and on Sundays there are roast options.

The pub is to the south of Parson's Green, and across from the famous White Horse on the north side. Refurbished in 2015, it's a modernist open bar, hardwood floors, a mixture of comfortable 'fire-side' chairs (sadly just a 'coal-effect' gas fire), and large and small tables, high and lower. The usual Young's Ordinary and Special plus some local London craft beers and a good bottled range. There is some interesting tilework from the Fulham Pottery on the walls.

135-137 Stephendale Road
This part of West London has few transport links and is a funny mix of gasworks, newly redeveloped office blocks and terraced houses in quiet streets. The Fulham Arms gastro pub, then, is a bit of a trek to get to but worth the effort. The pub aims for an upmarket clientele, and it is perfectly possible to have a drink without needing to eat. Three ales from the Butcombe range may be expected.
The extensive food offering includes Saturday brunch, Sunday roasts, lunchtime sandwiches, and a kids' menu. The pub menus states "We care immensely about the quality, provenance and seasonality of the produce we buy, and work closely with our suppliers who share the same mindset. Walter Rose Butchers, Kingfisher of Brixham and Hobbs House Bakery to name a few, all strive to be fully sustainable, with complete traceability."
Note that the operator runs the Butcombe Loyalty Club, giving subscribers a range of benefits including 25% off food on Wednesdays and 20% off accommodation at all Butcombe Pubs and Inns across the country.

A spacious, light and airy, wood-panelled, 'L'-shaped bar, with a mixture of carpeted and highly-polished wooden floors and a variety of seating areas. Popular with local football supporters (Chelsea in case you need to know), it is otherwise tranquil by day and buzzing in the evenings. The value-for-money all-day food menu includes breakfast, childrens' menu, and meal & drink deals, see pub website for offers. There are a number of sports TVs including one in the garden. There are four handpumps, currently serving one or two cask ales; prices are reported very reasonable for the area.
- Harwood Arms
moc.smradoowrah@sgnikoob(020) 7386 1847
The inn sign depicts the coat of arms of the Earl of Harwood, the original freeholder. Built in 1866 as a beer house. Now the pub is at the very highest end of the gastropub spectrum, with excellent food and a very superior wine selection. Consistently high up in the Estrella Damm national Top 50 Gastropubs awards and also listed in the ED National Restaurant Awards. At time of writing it is the only Michelin-starred pub in the capital.
The pub specialises in British food with an emphasis on game, and encourages sustainability by trying to use as much wild food as possible plus fruit and veg from its rooftop garden. The chef/owner has his own herd of sika deer; and the venison scotch egg and Sunday venison roast feature prominently on the menu.
Quiz night is on Tuesday. Because of its food reputation, unsurprisingly most or all of the seating in the evening is laid out for diners and much of it at lunchtime. If you come during busy periods just wanting a drink, be prepared for vertical drinking! And if you do want to eat here, particularly for Sunday lunch, you may have to be prepared to book many weeks in advance.

This is the second Micropub in Havering and East London.

24 Upper Ham Road, Richmond
This pub/restaurant has had a very tasteful refurbishment both inside and out by the new tenant. The large paved garden area (now restored) has plenty of seating and a water feature.
History - This inn was created upon the site of a farm labourers cottage near Poulter’s Gate in the hamlet of Ham with Hatch, built for Sarah Burnham, a widow, in 1746. The ‘Hand and Flower’ name appeared in the 1861 Census and it seems the property was elevated to the status of an Inn sometime between 1851 and 1861. It has undergone alteration in recent years, but sections of some of the inner walls may still suggest the original structure of the little old two-story dwelling. The Gothic-style upper lancet windows facing the Garden on the North side also lend a certain touch of antiquity to the building. New swinging Pub Sign installed Nov 2023.

345 Petersham Road
A traditional picturesque pub located in a prominent position from the main road and at the corner of Ham Green. Established in 1756, the New Inn, as the name implies, replaced a previous pub called the White Hart, built in 1642. Behind the Georgian frontage lies a comfortable and relaxing pub, arranged around a central bar, decorated in a traditional style. Outside wooden seating and tables are provided at the front overlooking the Green. There is also a large paved walled courtyard garden at the rear.

57 Aldensley Road
This 1853 backstreet local is situated in the centre of the (estate agents') "Brackenbury Village", adding to its rural feel. Acquired by Fuller's from Watney's in 1991, the pub has undergone limited changes since, including combining the bars into one room, opening up the kitchen and extending into the former yard at the rear.
Entering through the middle door, the attractive wood-panelled bar counter, furnished with bar stools and a gantry, complete with snob screens, and an elaborate back bar are directly in front of you, whilst the main seating, with an eclectic assortment of dining tables and chairs, extends on the left to the rear, with piano and fireplace (with a real fire in cold weather) as well as to the right past the open-plan kitchen.
A frequent entry in the Good Beer Guide, this is a popular local with a devoted regular clientele supplemented by visitors drawn to the pub by its reputation for well-kept real ale and good food. Note that the pub is closed on Mondays and until 5pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

35 Wingate Road
Corner local in Brackenbury Village dating from 1866 and which headed upmarket after a 1996 refurbishment. It is still a local but now more food-led with a restaurant/eating area at rear of bar. Four handpumps of which at least two should be on at any one time, see pub website for real ales of the week. Head chef Philip Harrison won the Fuller's 2016 Great Sausage Roll Off with a pheasant, black pudding puree and turnip salad creation!
- Black Lion
nodnol.noilkcalb@olleh(020) 8748 2639
2 South Black Lion Lane
Grade II listed 16th-century inn very close to the river and visible from it, attracting tourists on their riverside walks. The large beer garden can seat 200, is home to a 400-year-old chestnut tree and hosts Sunday lunchtime barbecues. But the skittle alley which used to be at the back of the pub has now sadly disappeared to become a function area.
This is now a food-led venue, with pub classics and a range of pizzas for mains. There are 3 real ale pumps with normally at least two ales on.
A painting of the late A P Herbert, local resident, MP and polymath, presides over "his" corner table. Note that the beer prices here reflect the upmarket nature of the area.

This riverside pub close to rowing clubs and Hammersmith Bridge was first licensed in the mid-19th century and should not be confused with an earlier tavern of the same name although the present pub website claims a site licence from 1722! Gustav Holst, when music master of nearby St Paul's School, is reputed to have composed his Hammersmith Suite on the premises. Quiz night Wednesday. Four real ales normally available.
- Blue Boat
ku.oc.srelluf@taobeulb(020) 3092 2090
Distillery Wharf, Parr's Way
An impressive new Fuller's pub opened in March 2015 on the riverside, at the back of a new St. George's housing development at Fulham Reach, and off the top end of Fulham Palace Road quite close to Hammersmith Broadway.
There is a large terrace area for views across the river. Inside there is an open-plan kitchen, with dining areas and ample drinking space around a very long zinc bar. Numerous downlighters from a high concrete ceiling illuminate black and oak wood finishes, white tiles, nautical artefacts, lit display cabinets and a mix of large and small, high and low tables. The food offering includes a varied main menu plus sandwiches, Sunday roasts, and kids' dishes. This pub is very popular, so if you want to eat here then either book a table or get here early!
In 2016 the pub was runner-up in the Fuller's Griffin Trophy Best London pub category.
- Brook Green Hotel
ku.oc.sgnuoy@neergkoorb(020) 7603 2516
170 Shepherds Bush Road
On this site stood the Barley Mow until 1886, when the pub was rebuilt and renamed the Brook Green, just two years prior to its purchase by Young's. The word “Hotel” was appended when the letting rooms were added. The bar is spacious, high-ceilinged and airy, with big windows looking across Brook Green and down Shepherds Bush Road from the imposing corner site. Its decor and furnishing are a comfortable blend of Victoriana and modernity. At one end is a grand fireplace (complete with a log fire in the season) sporting a mirrored overmantle; at the other some stripped brickwork. In between is a long bar counter with an attractive mirrored mahogany back bar. Furniture consists of leather-style banquettes and upholstered chairs and stools at both high and low tables, together with some leather settees. Breakfast available from 7am on weekdays and 8am at weekends and food service, with enticing menu items at reasonable prices, continues throughout the day. But note that the licence here does not permit alcohol sale to the public until 10am. There is a separate basement cocktail bar, Smith's, offering only bottle beers, and 17 ensuite hotel rooms on the floors above.

First opened as a public house in 1871, owned by the Thomas Salt and Co Brewery. Now a cosy gastropub with secluded courtyard garden; the pub has attracted very good independent reviews for its food, e.g. serial entries in the Good Food Guide. Locals would be forgiven for keeping very quiet about this hidden gem, although the emphasis here is not on real ale; the excellent menus change daily. One ale was reported at our last update; further news welcome.
ku.oc.liamtoh@bupsrollecnahceht(020) 8748 2600
25 Crisp Road
In a building dating from the 1850s, this was a friendly & unpretentious locals' pub, which made it perhaps stand out from the more upmarket establishments in Hammersmith. The bar is located round three sides of a square and the decor is largely dark wood and black banquette seating. The pub is opposite the Riverside Studios site, and its walls feature black and white photos of British film and TV stars from the fifties to the nineties, a heaven for nostalgia fans. Two real ales and a range of lager pumps. Post-pandemic, the pub has been pretty much transformed under its new owner. Carl McCluskey took over the pub from his grandmother in 2020 and launched a pizza range, initially as a pandemic-era takeaway. His "Crisp Pizza W6" offering has received rave reviews and international attention, with queues of customers sometimes snaking back to the Apollo. It's walk-in only for seats, no reservations. Pizzas available Thursday evenings and Friday to Sunday from 1pm to 9pm.
ku.oc.6weertbarceht@ofni(020) 7385 3929
Large food-led riverside pub hidden away in the back streets and close to Fulham FC; rebuilt in 1898 by Sich’s Lamb Brewery of Chiswick. There is a split-level bar with a high-vaulted ceiling and some plush furniture including leather banquettes; with restaurant at rear. A very large decked patio/garden area overlooks the Thames and affords a view of the annual Varsity Boat Race; weeping willows and parasols provide sunshade. Good real ales. Occasional events such as Meet the Brewer, see venue website & social media; pub quiz is Tuesday.
- Craft Beer Co.
moc.ocreebtfarceht@htimsremmah(020) 8748 7033
17-18 Broadway Shopping Centre
Following a period of closure this site was taken over by the Craft Beer Co and reopened in 2019, having had a major refurbishment to create a “modern pub with old-school pub values and real hospitality at its core”.
The pub takes the form of a moderate-sized room, 'L'-shaped around the bar counter, and seems more spacious than previously, thanks to a contraction of the servery space and perhaps to the geometric patterning of the floor tiles. There is a good-sized terrace outside.
Usually available is three real ales on handpump, plus, as you would expect from the name, a good range of craft beer offerings: up to 20 keg lines and 50+ bottles & cans, including some rarities at appropriate prices.
Its location, close to the Apollo music venue and at the south end of the shopping arcade sandwiched between Hammersmith's bus and the District and Piccadilly Line stations, gives a good passing footfall throughout the day, but the pub can be especially busy before concerts across the road.
- Cross Keys
moc.liamg@6wsyekssorceht(020) 8563 7032
57 Black Lion Lane
Very much a traditional pub in the exclusive St Peter's Square area of Hammersmith, the Cross Keys attracts a mixed clientèle. Long owned by Fuller's, its handpumps used to serve exclusively London Pride, but now a Dark Star Pale Ale, or possibly a guest ale, is usually also offered. From the narrow frontage, with its attractive garden, two doors lead into the single room, wood panelled, with its anaglypta papered ceiling supported on slender iron columns. To the left, a rare sight in today's London pubs, is a dart board. Beyond the bar, the room opens out and leads to the two rear gardens separated by "The Barn", which can be reserved for functions. A short, but attractive, menu offers up-market pub-grub at modest prices for the area; it includes Sunday roasts. The kitchen may stay open late on the popular Thursday Quiz Night and the pub's website has occasional offers.
- Dartmouth Castle
moc.liamg@6weltsachtuomtradeht(020) 8748 3614
26 Glenthorne Road
1867 corner pub with a comfortable lounge bar which has an exceptional Victorian bar-back. The interior is noted by CAMRA as being of some regional importance; note the dumb waiter, still in working order. The side patio is covered over in the winter. The food offering includes a Mediterranean-inspired main menu. The pub is close to the Hammersmith tube stations and may become crowded in early evenings.
ku.oc.srelluf@srellitsid(020) 8747 6167
64 Fulham Palace Road
This is a corner Fuller's pub, close to the new 'Fulham Reach' property development, with a curved frontage and named after Haigs Gin Distillery, which stood nearby; perhaps oddly named since it was originally a beer house and could not sell wine or spirits. It still retains some original glasswork from the 1906 rebuild by Royal Brewery of Brentford. Large patio/terrace area attractively furnished & with its own BBQ & bar area. Large can & bottled beer range plus numerous craft beers on draught, two real ales and three ciders some of which CAMRA defines as real; following a mini-refurb in mid-2018, a feature of the bar is two 880-pint tanks of Frontier lager. Changing weekly menu and semi-open kitchen. Comedy, live music, quiz, open mic and band nights. Winner of the Outstanding Achievement category in Fuller's 2015 pub of the year contest, The Griffin Trophy.
ku.oc.srelluf@evod(020) 8748 9474
19 Upper Mall
One of London's Real Heritage Pubs, the main bar area is on a raised level with a tiny public bar at the front, the smallest area for any London bar at around 33 square feet. However, research suggests that this bar is not very ancient and was installed some time after 1911 by the then licensee who mistakenly thought his pub layout contravened the Licensing Consolidation Act of 1910 and hurriedly created the tiny snug.
The likes of Dylan Thomas, Ernest Hemingway and Alec Guinness have enjoyed a pint or two of excellent beer here; fortunately for them they were all drinking after 7th January 1928 when the bars were waist-high in water. Now, we hope, the Thames Barrier will stop another inundation! The rear conservatory has a fruit bearing vine and leads to a terrace overlooking the Thames. Well worth a visit but often crowded in summer. If you are lucky you can climb up the spiral stairs to the tiny mezzanine terrace which has two or three tables.
Classic food with a twist is served every day; meals can take a little time to arrive at busy times but are worth the wait.
Note that the pub no longer takes cash for payments.
ku.oc.htimsremmahssehcudeht@ofni(020) 8748 9128
320 Goldhawk Road
Large, airy corner pub, rebuilt 1928 and now providing two distinct areas with a small decked beer garden to one side. Now owned by Ei and a tenancy within their True Pub operation.
The ale range is normally two or more of Doom Bar, HSB, and London Pride. The food range includes pub classics, vegan dishes and Sunday roasts.
Registered by Hammersmith & Fulham Council on 7th March 2017 as an Asset of Community Value, expired 7th March 2022.

48 Fulham Palace Road
Reverted to its original name as part of a 2004 refurbishment after a spell as a Finnegan's Wake Irish theme pub. A large single bar with large screen TV; it can be very busy and noisy in the evening. Close to Hammersmith Apollo (formerly Odeon).
- Duke of Hammersmith
moc.godwerb@htimsremmahfoekud(020) 7042 5109
238 Shepherds Bush Road
Following the acquisition by BrewDog of the small Draft House chain of London pubs, this one has been renamed the Duke of Hammersmith: external signage still includes the original name, the Laurie Arms, and the "Beer Here" sign put up by the previous owners.
The interior, complete with original ten-foot stained-glass windows, is a celebration, using original gig posters and photos, of the Hammersmith Palais which used to flank the pub on three sides until it was demolished in 2013. The various spaces are defined by exposed brick walls and Victorian pitch pine cladding and the furnishings include ochre-yellow upholstered steel-framed benches with fluted backs lining those walls and a variety of hard chairs. All in all a charmingly quirky environment.
The wide range of keg craft beer (up to 20 taps), cocktails and up-market pub-grub offerings, including vegan dishes, are as expected for BrewDog. There are three handpumps on the bar and at date of this entry one is in use, with staff claiming that the ale range will expand in due course.
There is a tiny smoking area on the left at the back of the pub plus a bigger separate non-smoking patio area to the right. Pavement seats at the front extend to the south.
Further updates welcome.
- Grove Tavern
ku.nrevatevorgeht@ofni(020) 8748 2966
83 Hammersmith Grove
Renamed at the end of 2022, this is a gastropub but described on its website as "taken back to being a traditional London pub serving good quality food and drink". There is a bar-snacks menu as well as the main dining menu. The first-floor bar is available for bookings. Comedy nights (entrance fee). Normally three real ales plus a good range of bottled beers. At busy dining times drinkers-only may be encouraged to sit outside. Additional outdoor seating has been provided by the conversion of a kerbside parking bay.
- Hammersmith Ram

Originally the Great Angel, then the Angel from 1786, this pub was next renamed the Builders Arms (a name transferred from a closed pub on Hammersmith Bridge Road) following its acquisition by Young's from Fuller's in 1966. The present pub name dates from 1996. Last refurbed in autumn 2022, there are now six handpumps (though offering perhaps just four different real ales) and a new menu is on offer including the "Ham Ram Breakfast" and Sunday roasts. There is a small enclosed beer garden to the side, providing an outdoor haven away from the traffic.
- Hop Poles
email@example.com(020) 8748 1411
17-19 King Street
The present Grade II listed building, with its striking granite-faced frontage on Hammersmith's high street, featuring bow windows at the entrances, dates from 1857. Records of earlier public houses on the site go back to 1798 and names included the Manchester Arms and later the Three Hop Poles. The cavernous interior, once divided into many rooms, retains some of its original features: remnants of partitioning, slender scroll-topped columns supporting the ornately decorated high ceiling and some glasswork and mirrors can all be seen. An island bar, with an attractive back-bar, serves all areas of the ground floor. Contrary to the old signs in the windows, this is no longer a free house. The four handpumps generally offer Sharp's Doom Bar and a changing ale. A Lilley's cider may occupy another handpump. The menu focusses on pizza, tapas, burgers and sharing plates: see the pub's website for special offers. TV screens show freeview broadcasts, occasionally including sports events. Thursday is Quiz Night starting at 7pm.

157 Hammersmith Road
Opened in 1988 as part of a slightly earlier office block. A smartly refurbished lounge bar with a large, circular, art deco mirror, which was salvaged from a cinema, in the centre of the ceiling. The food trade is very strong at lunchtimes and there is a separate restaurant at the rear serving English and Thai food. The original pub on the site, the Red Cow, was pulled down in 1981 having been popular with those involved in 1960s motor racing. It was also a music venue, having played host to the Jam.
- London Corinthian Sailing & Sons of the Thames Rowing Clubs

60 Upper Mall
The two clubs, the London Corithian Sailing Club (lcsc.org.uk) and the Sons of the Thames Rowing Club (sonsrowing.com) share the impressive Grade II listed Linden House. The LCSC was established in 1894 and managed to co-purchase the freehold of the building in 1999. The long-term aim of the clubs is for Linden House to become West London's premier water sports venue. The bar, on the first floor, facing the river and comfortably furnished, serves two real ales from Fuller's as well as various keg beers. Superb home-cooked food is offered. The opening hours given above vary seasonally and according to tide and sailing conditions: the LCSC website gives details. The various rooms at Linden House, from the large Ballroom to the intimate Commodore's Room may be hired for events, with or without catering: see the Linden House website.

107 Hammersmith Bridge Road
Reopened on August 18th 2023 after a short period of closure for refurbishment following a change of management. The refurb retained the interior layout of the pub together with its pool tables and (increasingly unusual in West London) dart board.
Adjacent to Hammersmith Bridge's northern anchors, this redbrick-faced establishment now has a smartly furnished interior with tiled floors and wood-panelled walls (tongue and grooved throughout). Divided into three parts with semi-secluded seating areas and two smaller rooms, one devoted to one of the two pool tables, at the rear.
Two real ales are usually available, together with keg beers, wines and spirits, including an impressive range of cocktails. Food offerings are limited to pizzas and pies, the latter optionally accompanied by a variety of extras including the traditional gravy, mash and mushy peas!

This is a pleasant riverside pub with good views up and down the Thames, renovated in early 2018. A veranda and railed-in patio area are at the front. Inside, there is a large lounge bar with modern decor and a separate side restaurant; the first-floor patio gives a good view of the Boat Race. A children's play area is handily close by. Normally two ales are available but this may dwindle to one at busy times; further updates welcome.
- Pear Tree
moc.mahlufeertraepeht@gnikoobaekam(020) 7381 1787
14 Margravine Road
Dating to the 1800s and tucked away in the back streets of Hammersmith behind Charing Cross hospital, the Pear Tree is one of the oldest buildings in the area. The interior maintains the traditional cosy feel we associate with family-run pubs, with comfortable furniture, real fires and a huge back garden. Originally the Pear Tree Inn, the pub again offers accommodation in five bedrooms, one of them with en-suite facilities. The food is of a superior but homely quality: the bargain Sunday roast is very popular and can run out early. A bar snack menu is offered as well as the main meals. Note restricted weekday opening hours.

120-124 King Street
On the site of an inn established in 1419 and, more recently, a Rolls Royce showroom, the present light and airy Wetherspoon pub on Hammersmith's main shopping street dates from 2002. It has a mixture of stone and carpeted floors and a long metal-topped bar with ten handpumps, more than half of them devoted to an ever-changing range of guest ales, generally including a choice of light and dark brews. Look out for the well-advertised beer festivals. Several tables can be found on the pavement in front of the pub and rather more on the verandah to the side, at some of which smoking is permitted. The usual Wetherspoon menu offers breakfast from 8am, but service of alcoholic drinks begins at 9am. The upper floors are occupied by a Holiday Inn Express.
- Prince of Wales Townhouse
ku.oc.esuohnwot-selawfoecnirp@olleh(020) 8563 1713
73 Dalling Road
Following an extensive refurbishment of its interior and garden, the pub reopened in 2020 with a new name, incorporating its likely original one, the Prince of Wales, becoming 'his' Townhouse. Presently there are connections with the well-regarded Big Smoke Brewery, with its small chain of pubs in London and South-east England, with the Laine Brewery, continuing from its earlier role, and with Punch. (Both Laine and Punch are ultimately owned by US bank Fortress Investment Group).
The L-shaped bar, along much of the inside wall of the large single room, is equipped with ten handpumps, usually offering a range of up to five cask ales and five ciders, plus twenty keg beer lines. Decor is light and airy, whilst seating consists of a mixture of upholstered banquettes and wooden chairs.
Outside, the garden has been enhanced with a number of open-sided huts for four, some comfortable wooden tables and chairs with sunshades and a few of the Big Smoke signature biergarten-style long trestle tables with benches. In winter the area may be protected from the elements with a canvas roof and provided with heaters.
An extensive menu includes pub-grub favourites, sharing platters and more up-market dishes. Normally, breakfast is served from 9am but, under the terms of the licence, alcohol may not be served until 10am and the pub has indicated that alcohol service starts at 11am. There is no food service between 3pm and 5pm.
The Big Smoke chain has a buy 9 pints, get the 10th free loyalty scheme. and various other food and drink offers may be seen on the venue website, including happy-hour cocktails.

13 Brook Green
The pub dates from at least 1722 and there is a charming picture of its interior in 1839 from Faulkner's History of Hammersmith. Now it is a large but cosy establishment on the famous Brook Green, which was called the Maidenhead until rebuilt in 1812. Upmarket and much larger than the frontage suggests, with several drinking and eating areas stretching back to the rear beer garden, which is worth a visit in itself - note the proper trees. Formerly patronised by Sir Henry Irving and William Morris. Note the pub sign, a nod to the original image used on the world's first postage stamps in 1840.

Riverside pub dating from 1849 with a smart lounge bar and a dining area at the rear. Rowing sculls are suspended from the ceiling and there is a first-floor balcony bar for functions. Bench seats at the front give a good view of the river. Famous for being in the opening title sequence of the TV series Minder.
moc.liamg@6wnoitatulaseht(020) 8748 3668
154 King Street
First licensed in 1727, when it was a coaching inn, the present Fuller's pub, designed by A P Killick and grade II listed, dates from 1910. The pub's frontage is a rare complete survival in London of the use of lustrous faience tiling. Double entrance doors, with stained glass panels in Art Nouveau style and brass plates, lead to an interior substantially altered over the years but still retaining many of its original features. There is a fine fireplace with a mirrored mantelpiece and a large ceiling lantern. A modern conservatory at the rear leads to a substantial enclosed patio. A previous landlord won many Fuller's awards for his garden, so much the so that the late Queen Mother, as Patron of the London Garden Society, visited the pub in 1989 to inspect the floral display, the customary photograph of her pulling a pint behind the bar capturing the occasion. Today's decorative style has resulted in attractive stripped pine floor boards, half-height wood panelling over-painted green and grey and the upper parts of the walls decorated with old educational posters. A mixture of tables and comfortable chairs and plenty of open space in front of the bar contrive to encourage both diners and drinkers. Fuller's core London Pride and ESB are supplemented by at least one, but sometimes two, other real ales from the Fuller's range or elsewhere. The food offering is Thai.

Now in gastropub style with plenty of wooden tables, chairs and floor plus a raised open kitchen area behind the bar servery. At date of making this entry the pub is recruiting to expand the kitchen hours. Further updates welcome.

Claimed to be on the site of the first coaching stop west after leaving the City and now handily placed between the two Hammersmith Underground stations and close to the bus station, the Swan, built in 1901 by the architect Frederick Miller in Jacobean style, is Grade II listed. Note the fine tessellated gables depicting the eponymous fowl. Inside, wood predominates in the bustling 'L'-shaped main room. Beyond the counter, with its fine back-bar, is more seating in the spacious corridor and alcove which formed the original hotel entrance. An ornate double staircase leads to a first-floor restaurant with its own bar and the pub's toilets. A good range of real ales is on offer downstairs, including some darker and some paler brews. The usual Nicholson's menu offers traditional fare at reasonable prices throughout the pub; the venue also offers a food collection or home delivery service.
- Thatched House
moc.bupesuohdehctaht@ofni(020) 8741 6282
115 Dalling Road
Having reverted to the name longest associated with it, the Thatched House offers a successful combination of traditional pub room at the front, glass-roofed light and airy dining/function room in the middle and partly covered walled garden to the rear. The site in road fork ensures that the pub is a lot bigger inside than it appears to be from the street!
A former Ram Pubco house, Young's London Original ("Ordinary") remains the staple real ale, with the three other handpumps (often reducing to two in summer) dispensing an interesting choice of changing ales, often from London breweries. The kitchen offers modern interpretations of classic pub food along with more up-to-date and interesting dishes. The pub's website details the midweek special offers.
- William Morris
ku.oc.noopsrehtewdj@661p(020) 8741 7175
Swan Island, 2-4 King Street
The pub is named after the Arts & Crafts designer and social reformer who lived by the river nearby in the late nineteenth century. It's a large pub built in former shop premises and on a wartime bomb site. When first opened in 1997, it was branded as a Lloyds No 1 Bar with signature loud music and video screens. Subsequently it was changed to become a standard Wetherspoon and just one screen remains, now devoted to news.
Being close to both of Hammersmith's underground stations, just across the square from its Lyric Theatre and not far from the Apollo music venue, the pub can be quite busy, but, being spacious, never seems too full.
The interior is 'L'-shaped, with entrances on King Street and on the pedestrianised Lyric Square, where there is a good sized terrace (half of which is available for smokers), and features two raised seating areas with the bar in between. Walls are decorated, in typical Wetherspoon style, with illustrations of local history.
Up to seven changing ales are chosen according to the demand of the pub's many regulars and usually include at least one dark beer and often several from local breweries. The standard Wetherspoon food offerings are available until 11pm each evening.
Note that under the terms of the premises licence, although open earlier for breakfast, alcoholic drinks may not be sold until 9am.

14 Flask Walk
One of north London's best known pubs, rebuilt in 1874 and bought by Young's in 1904. A veritable Hampstead institution, originally the Lower Flask, which, after its acquisition by Young's, underwent a sympathetic refurbishment, albeit one that was somewhat controversial with locals. The old public bar, with its separate entrance, darts board and TV screen, is very much as it was and, incidentally, this is the only part of the pub open from 11.00, the lounge opens at noon. As you enter the lounge, your eyes are immediately drawn to the fine tinted sepia photographs which adorn a full-height timber-and-glass screen separating this room from the public bar. This small, intimate area then leads into a larger back bar. Finally you are led into a conservatory, very much for eating. A CAMRA London Heritage Pub listed for its historic interior. Tuesday quiz nights. Third of a pint taster paddles available and are good value. Various board games including dominoes. Children permitted until 20.00.

Roomy gastro-pub, offering starters, salads, pizzas, pastas, mains and desserts, along with extensive wine list. Very popular with young professionals, it seems. interior still retains some nice features, such as fireplaces, but mainly dominated by track lighting, soft music, upholstered banquettes, wooden tables and chairs, along with recent extension to dining area (which sacrificed garden space in a less than aesthetic manner).
The still-large garden was allegedly the site of 17th century games of Pell-Mell (a Dutch ball game which gave its name to Pall Mall), though the pub is first recorded in 1820. There is the Hampstead Room below, which can be rented for private use.
Its unique feature lies in the basement, a full size "old English" or "London" skittle alley, one of only two in the capital (also prone to flooding from time to time, as the pub sits above a tributary of the River Fleet). More of a dining than a drinking destination. Listed as an Asset of Community Value in Sept 2016.

250 Haverstock Hill
There has been a pub here since 1666, when this was the main road out of London, the present building dating from the 1920's built as a hotel featuring modern gas lamps for lighting. The large lamps outside may well have been for such purpose. Originally the George, it had a spell as the Great Tree from 1700 until later in the 18th century. Used to be a Rat & Parrot (S&N Retail) for a few years until 2004. The exterior is quite impressive in "Brewer's Tudor" style with leaded windows in the upper story. There is a large single, open plan L-shaped bar which has undergone recent refurbishment to brighten the place up and create a very comfortable environment. Using plenty of light wood, soft colours, lighting and gas coal-effect fires, there's a stripped wooden bar with stools around it and a mix of sofas and standard tables. The floor is alternatively tiled or wooden and the back area seems to be reserved for eating in the evenings. There is a small patio to the rear, largely given over to smokers. Hot and cold meals are available daily. All NHS staff get a 10% discount.

77 Hampstead High Street
This old coaching inn with a large central bar has been a stalwart of the gay scene for many years which has earned it the local nick-name of the Pink Willie. The entertainment is geared to the target audience and there is seating in a very pleasant back garden and outside on the street by a crepe stall (separately operated so don't bring crepes into the pub).
Essentially one room wrapped around a central bar but remnants of former room dividers help break the place up into several discrete areas. The closing hours Fri to Sun are described as "late bar".Listed as an ACV Nov 2015 following an application by the Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum.
Rock Group Whiskey Mick on Mondays, Piano Bar Sing-a-Long session on Thursdays and Cover Version Trio Bad Dog Bites on Fridays. Occasional live music some Saturdays. The pub also hosts bi-monthly charity fundraising events which are very well supported by customers and local businesses alike.
The walls are dedicated to the people of Hampstead with over 100 portraits throughout the pub walls with maximalist effect.

June 2022 - Handpumps still in place, Doom Bar clip turned round.
Closed briefly in early 2018 when taken over by Ei Group's Craft Union Pub Co division. Now reopened with new monochrome fascias but otherwise mostly unchanged. The previous refit was only carried out in October 2013. Tables outside in front for use in nice weather. The locale of Gospel Oak, where it is situated, refers back to a tree under which parishioners gathered to hear an annual gospel reading - a continuation of a pre-Christian practice. Gospel oaks also acted as boundary markers with clergy giving Bible readings as part of the traditional annual ceremony of the Beating of the Bounds. There used to be an eel/shellfish stall in front of this pub - long gone now, alas.

The building dates back to about 1585, though possibly not originally a pub, it is soaked in history, housed in a charming grade II listed, white weatherboard clad exterior. The pub's interior is divided into separate rooms with areas featuring wooden beams and low ceilings, lending the place a cosy atmosphere. There is a large garden out back alongside the car park. The inn is mentioned in Dickens' 'Pickwick Papers' and Bram Stoker's 'Dracula', Keats is said to have written 'Ode to a Nightingale' in the garden. But references to the highwayman Dick Turpin being born here are false since he was born in Essex. Good selection of imported beers and close to the Heath and Kenwood House. It can get very busy at the weekends so don't be surprised with a long queue just to get a drink on a busy, sunny, Sunday afternoon. Drinkers may be relegated to the heated garden if tables inside are booked for food.
Alcohol is served from 10am.
Bus: 210 plus the rare/elusive 603 (only 4 times a day Mon - Fri).

Aug 2022 - the freehold was sold by The Hampstead Wells & Campden Trust to Simon Bridbury Developments Ltd. This saw the end of the 300 year history of property ownership in the area for the charity. Beth Coventry (landlord since 2003) was quoted in the Camden New Journal, "I've got 4 years left on my lease and it should basically automatiucally renew". We shall see.
Possibly the most gastro of all gastro-pubs in NW3, some 80% of the custom is diners which could be explained by the hearty portions. Food served daily. Not easy to find as bears a passing resemblance to one of the many fine houses you find around here. The interior has been furnished and finished in a modern style, black tiles adorn the walls and there is a lounge area at the back with a TV. In May 2018 guests were from Truman's. Underground: Hampstead. Registered as an Asset of Community Value in June 2016. Overground: Hampstead Heath.

Located in the main High Street and next door to the Hampton Hill Theatre, the layout has not changed significantly from previous incarnations of this establishment although it’s been considerably improved with this latest major refurbishment as the Beech House in December 2018. Inside is larger than the outside frontage would suggest. There is comfortable seating in the bar area. The large 'dining room' is served from an open plan kitchen/serving counter along a side wall. The décor is modern in style including the ubiquitous (semi covered) plumbing and ventilation pipes along the ceiling. The well positioned lighting contributes to the pleasant ambiance though out. The Mediterranean inspired food menu is extensive and includes traditional Sunday lunches available from 12pm. The patio around the front entrance has a number of tables and chairs.

The pub reopened 5th May 2023 under its previous name. The pub and garden has been given a complete makeover by the new management who are the same owners of The Railway Teddington and The Greyhound in Kew Green. The inside is divided into three different spaces, the main bar area, lounge area and conservatory dining area. The garden has been split into three areas, the raised deck with high and low tables for drinking, dining and private functions. This astro-turfed dining area can accommodate a 50-seater restaurant to dine at your leisure and a newly laid grass area will complete the theme with deckchairs, a pop-up bar and a pergola swing to relax in the summertime to come. The kitchen provides breakfast, a set lunch, a la carte and children’s menus and is run by Greedies www.greediesworld.com
The pub is said to have been opened in 1830 (but there is some evidence it may have been earlier) and re-fronted and extended in 1925. It is now designated a Building of Townscape Merit. The pub is named after The Duke of Clarence who lived in Bushy House with his mistress, the celebrated actress Dora Jordan. He was later crowned King William IV in 1830.

Comfortable single bar Victorian pub with partitioned seating areas, owned by an inveterate collector – obvious from the decor.

New items appear all the time. The small garden has a gazebo for smokers and there is a garden room (available for hire) for cooler evenings. The real fire never goes out in winter.
