Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Tea Clipper

Quite an attractive place, with a traditional (but not overpowering) wood-panelled interior. Two of three handpumps in operation on this visit: Marstons EPA and One in the Wood from the Lamb microbrewery. Has the makings of a nice pub, but never seems to have quite the right atmosphere.

OK sort of place but nothing special. The staff were indifferent and treated everyone with the same contempt they apply to all passing trade. The Doom Bar was pretty good but we didn't bother staying to sample the cuisine which seems very overpriced. Average.

Situated in a Knightsbridge side street not too far from Harrods is The Tea Clipper, a single bar street corner pub. The pleasant interior features bare boards and much wood panelling, with many shipping photos and prints. We learn that the pub was established in 1863, although it doesn't have that "olde pub" feel to it.

Perhaps not surprisingly, there's a rather upmarket ambience and prices for both food and drink are predictably high. There's no feeling that this is in any way a community local, but one that has set out its stall to pick up passing trade from Harrods shoppers and museum visitors.

On my recent visit, beers on were Ringwood Best, Marston's EPA and Pedigree. The Ringwood Best - £ 3.30p - was in good form.

This is a reasonable enough establishment, but it's not really a drinkers pub, and there's better alternatives not too far away.
