Having fought past a group of American tourists negotiating for a dining table, I found myself in a rather gutted and stripped pub with various bare brickwork and some ridiculous wallpaper on the ceiling. The gloomy colour scheme gives a sort of wine bar effect. I didn't have the enthusiasm to visit the upstairs bar/dining room but suspect it is not much different. The only saving grace is the beer, which seemed to be in very good order. ESB, London Pride and Hophead were on draught, plus a cider.

Now open after a short closure for a gratuitously dreadful refurbishment. It has been opened out, all the exposed wood either removed or boxed in and all surfaces painted a faecal pastel colour. One wall is inexplicably covered with Hollywood cinema bills. Big tables and huge sofas dominate. It will doubtless appeal to the local Made In Chelsea clientele but all traditional pub ambience has been removed. It used to be a division ahead of the four or five identikit Taylor Walker branches around here. It's now on the step below them.

Points reduced from 7 to 5.

This is one of the older pubs in the area with various historical associations including Conan Doyle and as a famous watering hole for American service personnel during the war. It was recently acquired by Fullers from Punch Taverns and what an improvement it is. In Punch days their wasn't much to choose between this and their other two establishments further up the road but the Hereford is now way ahead. Very traditional in layout, exposed brickwork and beams, though not entirely genuine and the eating area kept separate from the main part of the pub. Usual Fullers range in good condition, but it's probably best to visit during the day in high tourist season as it gets pretty busy when they all get back from their sightseeing.

This is a Fuller’s pub, with Pride, ESB, Brithop and Gale’s Spring Sprinter on, and with a guest ale of Oakham’s JHB. I went for the latter, which was in fine fettle, but was outrageously and bizarrely overpriced at £4.14 a pint. There is an area to the right where all tables are laid for diners; I don’t know if the bar menu is available in there, but it was available where I sat in the main bar, and included pub grub staples like fish & chips or sausage & mash for £10.50 and £10.95 respectively.

This is more like a traditional pub than the other Chelsea and Kensington pubs I had visited during the day. It doesn’t have the high ceilings of a classic Victorian pub, but it does have plenty of dark wood, including some solid looking wooden posts and beams. The dining area has an attractive brick built fireplace, and the bar counter is surrounded by a black and white tiled splash area. All furnishings are normal tables and chairs so they’ve passed my personal comfort criterion.

I quite liked this pub, apart from the overpriced beer.
