See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
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.
