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.
Enjoy an intimate meal or lounge on one of our comfy chesterfields with a drink in hand. The kitchen offers a distinctive blend of British and Colonial-inspired food with a flexible menu of delicious, fresh and seasonal dishes (the squid starter and the pulled pork burger are must tries!). Meanwhile, the bar serves a fantastic selection of bespoke jam-based cocktails alongside wine, ice-cold draught and craft beer, organic fruit juices and coffee.
Upstairs is a recent, exciting refurbishment of the Loft Bar - an additional bar and events space. Combining style with flexibility, this large, open-plan space features a dedicated corner bar, comfortable sofas, larger sharing tables and distinct seating areas. The Loft can cater for everything from brunches and business lunches to larger bookings, one-off events and private party hire. During the daytime, it operates as a meeting space, fitted with necessary boardroom equipment and ideal for those businesses situated within the local area.
The perfect setting for a spot of al fresco dining, our garden is open from noon to 11pm, seven days a week, with ample seating to house drinkers and diners during the day, and heaters to keep the party crowd warm later on. The garden shuts at 11pm but things hot up inside at the weekend with DJs playing until 2am to a packed dance floor.
