As of November 2018, The Chelsfield community pub is under IMMINENT THREAT OF DEMOLITION - to be replaced by 10 luxury flats, a large retail unit and a token bar facility. A campaign against this proposed development has been started by local residents. For more information, and to help support the campaign, please see these links:
Note that the closing date for comments to the council is 14th November.
Large pub conveniently situated for both Chelsfield main line rail station and the local R1 bus route. The pub was sympathetically renovated in the early 2010's and is now a comfortable pub to enjoy a pint, with the Georgian-style windows admitting plenty of light. There is a particularly good selection of old photographs of the neighbourhood.
There are large rooms at each end of the main bar, one is now used as a restaurant whilst the other is a function room with a dartboard. Dogs are welcomed provided they are kept well clear of the restaurant area.
The range of real ales was substantially increased in 2017 with one of the three guest beers usually being non-mainstream. There is a happy hour on Mondays from 4.30 - 6.30pm when the price of real ales is reduced by £1 for all customers. The discount for CAMRA members doesn't apply in that period but can be used at all other times.
