King's Road gastropub with a good-sized patio and a barbecue
This King's Road bar and restaurant proves a bit of a draw for Chelsea sorts - and for those from further afield, too. The open-plan garden is a great spot for summer drinking and dining (it's got its own bar, and a barbecue), while inside it's all chesterfield sofas, buffed wooden flooring, pop art and exposed brickwork.
The menu borrows from cuisines across the globe. Expect, then, dishes ranging from raw asian slaw with herbs, chilli and peanuts to shrimp and grits, lardo and scotch bonnets on toast, hanger steak with salsa verdi, and a salad of aubergine, chickpeas, preserved lemon and courgette.
Cocktails are prominent on the drinks list, with many of the signature mixes made with jam. So, a 'black moonshine' is made with Disaronno, Sailor Jerry's rum, cloudy apple juice and a spoon of blackcurrant jam, and a mojito with Bacardi Gold, fresh mint, lime and raspberry jam.
