The Districts Pubs of Chelsea & Brompton

††††††††††† Walking down Kingís Road from Sloane Square station to Oakley Road is very nice but it has always left me with the suspicion that people here shop all the time.SW3 also takes in Brompton near Harrods.I donít have to explain Harrods do I?

Entry written prior to Feb. 2003: This is quite a walk from the station but well worth the walk down Kings Road.Left on Oakley and right on Cheyne Row and youíre in one of Londonís best.It has a good size bar and plenty of table space.Diners can eat in the rear.They have a very good selection of real ales including many Belgian bottles.This pub was established in 1580.Itís such a nice local that they still have quiz night.

Sloane Square Station

††††††††††† Two bar pub with separate entrances. The corner door opens to a small saloon bar whereas the side door opens to a lounge bar. Judging from what I saw I think this was a gay bar but well received by everyone on Sunday afternoon, Jan 2003.
