Pubs in the region

As Londoners, we cherish our local pubs. West Brompton has some great go-to spots. From smaller, more family run chains to larger pubs like WeatherSpoons, there is a pub for everyone in the area.

Pub name Name Address Description
Chelsea Ram 32 Burnaby Street Chelsea SW10 0PL 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.
Fox & Pheasant 1 Billing Road Chelsea SW10 9UJ 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.
Hollywood Arms 45 Hollywood Road Chelsea SW10 9HX 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.
Kings Arms 190 Fulham Road Chelsea SW10 9PN 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 114 Lots Road Chelsea SW10 0RJ 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.
Sporting Page 6 Camera Place Chelsea SW10 0BH 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.
