Beaufort House

Chelsea

Just past the Bluebird, the grand Beaufort House comprises a public bar at the front, of slightly continental appearance, and a back room where members may withdraw after midnight.

A large horseshoe bar counter is lined with stylish, turquoise-topped bar stools and surrounded by wooden, window-view tables; each is centrepieced by large menus detailing drinks, wines and food.

Cocktails, priced around £8, make ample use of Tanqueray gin, and Belvedere, Grey Goose and Ketel One vodkas; note, in particular, the Beaufort Garden of Tanqueray, fresh cucumber and home-made chamomile syrup.

The wine list runs to almost 100 labels; a humbler dozen by the glass include a sauvignon blanc Caliterra from Chile and a Stellenbosch Eikendal merlot. The food menu is just as smart as the rest of the surroundings.

I've been to the Private Members section for several dating events, and to be honest it's rather run down.  The wallpaper is peeling and damaged on the stairs, and the food, which I've had a couple of times, isn't great.  It's a good location if you want to book a room in Chelsea relatively cheaply, but unfortunately if you're seeking the prowess of a private member's club, you won't find it here.

One of the worst drinking experiences I've had in London. Zero atmosphere. The staff are rude in general trained to collect your glasses before your drinks are finished. Table service is provided in order to get you to pay extortionate service charges. The server bought us the wrong drinks and then came and argued with me when I didn't want to pay the charge. Full of knobs...
