Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Phene

Attractive - but very upmarket - gastro-pub, with even half the tables in the bar laid up for those eating in addition to the various dining rooms. Also has a side garden mostly under the cover of large umbrellas. With two handpumps on the counter, Wandle and Ghost Ship are normally available, but on this post-Christmas visit to latter had been replaced by a Chocolate & Orange seasonal stout from Essex Street Brewery (with which it has a connection; much more expensive at £5.90, but something different to try).

You can only speculate that this might once have been a backstreet boozer. However it is now a ridiculously posh place, inhabited by ridiculously posh people (think 'Made in Chelsea'), with a ridiculously posh 'garden' at the side. It does at least boast a couple of handpumps, serving Ghost Ship and Wandle with the latter in very good condition. Oh, did I mention it is ridiculously posh...?

From tonight's Evening Standard:

"The Chelsea pub where George Best was a regular for his favourite drink of white wine with ice is to be turned into a large family home.
The Phene is owned by property tycoon and Labour donor Robert Bourne. As the Phene Arms it was frequented by Best for 15 years until his death in 2005 following a liver transplant.
The Bourne family have decided to close the pub, blaming frequent complaints from residents about noise and traffic. If an application to convert it is approved it will become a house with the 60ft by 48ft cellar being turned into a swimming pool and sauna."
