Bumpkin Chelsea

This Sydney Street spot is the fourth branch from Bumpkin - a chain that kicked things off with a venue in Notting Hill. It's all about classic British cooking here, with an emphasis on locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients - so expect regularly changing menus that keep the culinary focus on Old Blighty. 

Dishes range from full English breakfasts and Sunday brunches to slow-cooked pork bellies served with poached Granny Smith apples, dressed Cornish crab with English caviar and toast, and line-caught sea bass with a caper and anchovy nut butter and samphire. The butcher's meat board - a popular choice - features cured meats from West Dorset. 

The wine list offers further homage to Britain, with Chapel Down, Hush Heath, Bolney and Nyetimber just some of the home-county wineries showcasing their wares. Bumpkin brew their own ale, too.

Bumpkin Chelsea has a beautiful garden that overlooks the Chelsea Gardener. It has a retractable roof and heaters, so it can be used all-year round. There's also a private room on the top floor that can be booked for meetings or parties. The menu features seasonal, local meat and produce, including their amazing burgers, cod & chips, steak, pork belly, salads and their award-winning sticky toffee pudding, not to mention a full bar with a large selection of English wines.

A very good friend of mine had his wedding reception here and it was fantastic. Once I strip away the emotional aspect of the day I am still impressed by this venue. It feels small enough to be intimate but as there is an inside space and an outdoor covered garden space there was enough space to mingle without feeling trapped. The outdoor space is probably the best feature of the venue as it offers a lovely quiet space moments from the kings road. The staff were friendly and the food was nice. The only potential hazard was the loos were downstairs down a minute staircase which took much skill navigating after a few bubbles whilst in heels!

Love going to Bumpkin Chelsea for their fab mac 'n' cheese and lovely garden. Great location to grab a meal and drinks after shopping on the King's Road.

Absolutely loved it. I booked the garden for a large group for my Birthday and each and everyone of us commented on how good it was. The garden is such a great addition, but the food and drink was the real winner. The staff there clearly know what they are doing and service was friendly, attentive but not over-bearing. I look forward to the next visit.


Came here for lunch on a whim recently, having been the Kensignton branch, we were expecting good things, and they definitely delivered!

We sat in the outside area, which was well heated. I had the seabass, which was cooked perfectly- amazing!
Service was friendly and prompt and the food was not only tasty but great value for your money.

I will be going again and trying out this place for dinner!


I have been to all the Bumpkins before and was never a fan. When the one on Sydney Street opened with a garden near my house I reluctantly gave it a go. It was a birthday dinner for 30+ people I organized, which is always a hassle in London. My experience here exceeded all my expectations. Thanks to their amazing manager, Karolina, we had one of funnest dinners. We were not required to choose a fixed menu, she accommodated all our desires and the food was great! Have been back many times since and am always warmly welcomed by all the staff!
