About The Chelsea Pensioner

While we’re excited about The Chelsea Pensioner choosing to forgo retirement in order to keep Fulham Road fuelled with their signature flatbread pizzas in the years to come, we’re even more excited about indulging in this Chelsea free house’s evil genius invention, The Sharey Mary. Yes, the DIY Bloody Mary has come to London, and it goes down a treat when built and shared with friends, especially come those gloomy Sundays.

More about The Chelsea Pensioner, London

The gentlefolk at Simmons, with bars dotted across King’s Cross and Camden, bring the good people of Chelsea yet another chapter in free house history, the eminently affordable and fun Chelsea Pensioner, along Fulham Road. This new London pub promises to revolutionise the tired concept of after work drinks in west London, offering prices that are actually half-decent that will enable some hobnobbing with colleagues and compatriots, scarlet-jacketed and tricorn-hatted or not. The drinks selection is enviable, with taps counting Meantime, Camden Brewery, Aspall’s Cider, Sharp’s Doom Bar, Guinness and our favourite usual suspect Europeans among their number.

The bottled range deepens The Chelsea Pensioner’s ruddy glow, as does the punchy international wine list, not to mention the craft cocktails whipped up according to recipes from the Simmons group’s central London mixology experts. A major draw to this Chelsea pub, besides the genuinely well-priced drink (a rarity in this rather plush area), is undoubtedly the food: famous flatbread pizzas, Sunday roasts, pies, fries, and bar fodder. This is all best enjoyed in the other little secret that The Chelsea Pensioner keeps down Fulham Road: the beer garden, which also hosts movie screenings from time to time. Don’t quit your day job, but do book some elbow space at The Chelsea Pensioner and enjoy a taste of the golden years.

Nice restaurant. Very quiet, not too crowded. Good prices, friendly staff. I'd probably avoid it if there was a Chelsea home match as it's proximity to stadium would mean it would be quite crowded.

Lovely, accommodating staff, great atmosphere, love the decor. Loved the karaoke room! The drinks were good and cheap too. Perfect place for a fun, inexpensive night out.

Good place to see some football or rugby games. Noisy but it’s usually like that in pubs! You can play snooker 🎱 with your friends as well.
