The Builders Arms is a decent enough looking back street pub.
Once inside there is single L shaped room with the bar to the front left,the room is bare boarded,the seating settees and normal tables and chairs,the rear left area is down one step,this area is carpeted and has bench seating and chairs,tables in this area were laid out for diners.
There were three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of London Beer Factory Chelsea Blonde,which was a decent drink,the other beers were Sambrooks Lavender Hill and Doom Bar.
The background music playing was crap in my opinion.
This seemed a decent enough pub to have a couple of drinks in.

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

Attractive, traditional-looking pub, somewhat hidden away in a Chelsea back street. Partly opened out inside to leave a 'U'-shaped bar with one part awkwardly down a single step. Fully made over, with all sorts different furniture and arty decor. Small patio seating area out front. Three handpumps on the counter, with a fairly dull selection of Doom Bar, Bombardier and Flowers IPA (£3.65, and served in a jug). NB - Table service if you are not careful; and, given the genteel surroundings, a wholly unnecessary doorman.

Pride, Cornish Coaster and Adnam's Bitter on. This place is all sofas and luxury, but with a few tables and chairs outside mainly for the smokers. Not much like the sort of pub I grew up with; par for the course in this area I suppose. But it seems like a popular place, so there is obviously room for this type of pub in the capital.
