It was a relief to actually see a pub after walking a fair bit down the King's Road, passing a multitude of designer outlets. The pub was busy on our Thursday eve visit, with a good few of the drinkers sitting outside, along the side street entrance. This is a one room pub, which was traditional in style, with the main feature being the front bay windows. The pub was well staffed behind the bar and in spite of the pub being busy, the staff took their time serving you and treating you as an individual and not a number, which I liked. Five handpumps with three ales on our visit, London Glory, Abbott and Sambrooke's Pumphouse Pale. We went for the latter, which was in excellent condition and cost a whopping £5.10, unfortunately it was my round.

Not a huge amount to add to the reviews below, The Chelsea Potter is clearly of its area and the focus is very much on food.
Three handpumps had on Youngs Gold, Pride and Doom Bar which was clear, clean and crisp.
A mixed clientele with all ages represented amongst locals and tourists alike but the atmosphere is pleasant and it's friendly enough.
I certainly wouldn't make a special effort to visit but it makes a decent enough pit stop for a well kept pint.

This is an iconic pub from the “Swinging 60s” era, well known to pop stars and footballers, and is dedicated to one William de Morgan, who founded the Chelsea Arts Pottery in the 19th Century. But now it's nothing more than a typical Central London pubco place, catering to tourists and the like enjoying the dubious pleasures of the King’s Road. It’s still a Punch Taverns pub, but now re-branded as part of their Taylor Walker estate. The all-pervading smell of fried food hits you as you enter, and furnishings are the usual mix of tall tables/stools/ledges and normal tables and chairs.
The ales on were Sharp’s Doom Bar, London Pride, and Woodforde Wherry. The pub serves a useful purpose of course, but to be honest it’s not really worth bothering with if you’re only after a quiet and comfortable pint.
