This is very much a “Chelsea” pub, with bare-boarded floors (at least in the main bar area at the front of the pub), scrubbed solid wood tables, and pastel shades featuring my favourite duck egg green. The bar counter is ahead of you on the right as you enter, with more seating to the left of the bar counter stretching a fair way to the rear. Wall decor is modern artistic in style, including a large print of the iconic Rolling Stones “tongue”. But I didn’t see any tall tables/stools, nor any fruit or games machines, which are a couple of very welcome plus points.
There is no possibility that somewhere like this, and in this area, would be anything other than expensive. As a Young’s pub the ale choice was severely limited. Young’s Bitter is £3.60 a pint; the other ale on is Bombardier, and I thought I heard another customer being asked for £3.90 for a pint of it, but surely I must have been mistaken. Probably need a hearing aid. Menus are single sheet affairs attached to clipboards on the tables. Sandwiches were £7.25, and main courses in the £10 to £14 range.
I certainly wouldn’t make this a destination pub, but I reckon that it’s better than anything along the Kings Rd, and is OK for a pint or two as long as you can stomach the prices.

Decent enough pub tucked away on the side streets but worth a short detour to check out. Comforting real fire on a wet and windy night and friendly staff.
There's a large front bar with large chunky wooden tables, and a smaller, cosier rear area more geared up for eating. There's board games and books on the shelves for you to use, and a number of pictures adorning the wall, most of them for sale presumably by local artists/photographers. Small TV above the door but this wasn't intrusive.
I agree with some of the other comments about the prices, we paid £6.20 for a pint and a half.
Beers were just Bombadier and Young's bitter. Ciders were Addlestones and Strongbow.

Nice enough place. Usual Youngs ales on sale, though the price is a bit high, but then this is Chelsea. Friendly staff.
