There's more to this Chiswick coffee house than initially meets the eye. Sure, there's a focus on high-quality coffees made from Workshop Coffee and Drop Coffee, but head downstairs and you'll find it's not just about the bean.
Chief's subterranean lounge plays host to classic pinball machines from the '80s and '90s - those in the know might recognise Cactus Canyon, Monster Bash, Medieval Madness or Cirqus Voltaire. And if you don't know your plunger from your playfield? They offer lessons, too.
Coffee remains a focus, though. Workshop and Drop provide the beans but they make their own cold-brews and iced-coffees with an in-house Kalita Wave Dripper. Their sweet treats do some very brisk business, too, including three crodoughs from the Rinkoff bakery that are ordered in each day and cakes from Sweet Butterfly.

Great view from the front window whilst drinking the best coffee in Chiswick or London. Pinball a total gas, great for kola and you gas it keeps the brain active. Love it.

Absolutely love Chief. I've been crazy about coffee for a while but thanks to Chief I'm now pretty excited by pinball too :)
Chief Coffee is everything you want from a coffee shop upstairs...friendly staff, good coffee and food...however it's the pinball room downstairs that sets it apart from anywhere else - so much fun to be had! Pinball is a fantastic hobby so any location that offers it (and unfortunately not many do) is well worth a visit!
Who needs the coffee when you can get so wired on the pinball? Grand Champion of Cirqus Voltaire, moi?
Great coffee, service, location and top quality pinball machines, seriously recommend checking it out.
