Started my mini crawl of some of the remaining traditional pubs around Sloane Square station here and found it still to be functioning as an unpretentious corner local. Although built into a 1930’s housing block its attractive enough from the outside with planted up window boxes and plenty of external bench seating along the two sides. Internally the L shaped bar area has no real interesting features but is pleasant enough being half panelled with a purple and green décor and the black and white film star photographs remain from the previous reviews. The public bar feel to one end still remains with its pool table dominating and jukebox and flat screen tele for the sport.
Same two beers of Bombardier and Spitfire on the two pumps and the Spitfire was decent enough. A few people in for my lunchtime visit including a couple of Chelsea Pensioners as they get discounts here, and although clearly not a destination pub I also would have no issue to utilise again when back in this area.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Rose & Crown

A surprisingly down to earth sort of pub, given the area, with sport on the TVs and a pool table. Not that large inside, but plenty of benches along both frontages. The bar staff were efficient enough too. Two handpumps - Bombardier and Spitfire (decent enough, and rather cheaper than I was expecting at £3.15).

There were two handpumps on the bar – one had a Spitfire clip reversed, and the other was dispensing Bombardier. The Bombardier was at the reasonably average price of £3.10 a pint, and tasted fine. This is an oddly shaped “L” shaped pub, presumably as a result of having two or more rooms knocked into one, with the bar (unusually with no gantry) opposite the point of the L. It’s reasonably comfortable inside – carpeted throughout, with a couple of banquettes at the back, and the remainder of the furnishings being normal tables and chairs. As you enter through the door in Lower Sloane St you see on the right the glass fronted cabinet at the end of the bar that would have been the food servery in a previous incarnation, but now is home to bottles of wine and soft drinks. There was a TV on showing a sports channel; a pool table; and a juke box. Some dark wood panelling looks to be the result of inter-war pub refitting, and some walls above the dado rail level are painted magenta. This doesn’t sound too good, but nonetheless looks quite attractive and is a good background to some black and white photographs of Hollywood greats such as Cary Grant, Burt Lancaster and Katherine Hepburn.
This struck me as a straightforward honest, unpretentious pub, of the sort that I would not have expected to find quite so near to Sloane Square. I would be very happy to drop in for another pint.

No real ale, but a drinkers type of pub in an area of posh shops & houses. Has outside seating area.
