The Builder's Arms says
Following our fabulous refurbishment in September 2019, we have reopened and transformed into an elegant yet eccentric space whilst also maintaining the pub's original charm.

Working with the finest suppliers of seasonal and fresh food, we have a new menu serving delicious modern pub food featuring a mix of classic and inventive dishes, alongside a carefully curated drinks menu with an extensive wine list, rotating craft beers, cask ales and cocktails.

Our pub has three areas - The Conservatory for up to 16 for drinks and canapés, The Dining Room for a sit down affair up to 30 or The Snug, perfect for a meeting up to 16 - something for everyone!

We are the beating heart of Chelsea and are proud to be part of the Hippo Inns family.

Quite pricey (it is in Chelsea though), they don't serve food even bar snacks in the afternoon but a lovely open fire and comfy seats. Food is generally pretty good, but Christmas lunch was a bit average. Overall a good option for a drink in Chelsea.


I went on a sunny Sunday after-noon with some friends and got to sit outside. The wine list was impressive and tasty and they had live music inside for a more relaxed way of spending a Sunday after-noon. The venue inside it quite narrow and could possibly not fit that many people. But it is nice relaxed place to go a bit hidden from the main drag.

Absolutely amazing pub. Food like from good restaurant, not a pub (best rib eye I had for a long time). Super friendly, entertaining but also really helpfull staff (great wine recommendation for reasonable price). Great vibe, people around seems to enjoy their time as well, it was really homely. Only problem is that you can't have your drink out after 22, but I understand this is license. Overall- yes, we will be back

Went there last night with my friends and food wasn't too bad, atmosphere was nice until a mouse spoiled our evening. It was going all over the place and we mentioned it to the staff who couldn't care less especially the manager on duty who couldn't have been more impolite, rude and arrogant. I will definitely think twice before going there again!!!!
