††††††††††† This is a nicely appointed pub with a sporty look to it.† That is if you like Cricket.† The pub sports a few game machines, but this looks like a fine place for ladies and gents.
Blenheim Chelsea [76 C5]
Bunch of Grapes (formerly Chef & Brewer) Brompton [144 D7]
††††††††††† This is a fine pub indeed.† Well built and well staffed it is an attraction in itself.† It lays half way between the museums and Harrods and should be on your hot list of places to go. A trap door from behind the bar leads to the basement for the staff.

Green Man Pub Knightsbridge/Brompton [144 E6]

The Green Man is everything you would expect in a quaint English pub.† Rich wood paneling, several hand pumps with some of Briton's best ales.† Unfortunately you need a king's salary to buy a beer.†

††††††††††† 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.
Trafalgar Chelsea [76 E5] Formerly The Lord Nelson
200 Kingís Road SW3 at
This is a well known pub as it is a very large and accommodating place. It is very active, even during the day. Quite the place to be for a game.
Nice looking corner pub.
