Cadogan Arms, Chelsea
Now owned by the people behind The Gun and The White Swan (amongst others), The Cadogan Arms has been upgraded and relaunched as a gastropub and seems to have been given a bit of a posh hunter's bar - think racks of antlers, large fireplaces and oak panelling. Real ales on the bar, with regular guest beers and a wine list running from reasonable to very expensive. It's okay, if a bit pricey for a pint (best part of £4 for a pint of beer!) and we can't say it's going to be a place we head for every time we're in the area. But hey, you get what you pay for and they do a reasonable job all round.

I really like The Cadogan Arms. It's a lovely revamped pub that maintains its old features. It has dark and wooden features throughout the downstairs, and a big fireplace, and then has a fantastic pool room upstairs if you're feeling competitive. They have a great drinks menu, and lovely staff too. Very nice.

I agree with general assessment that this place has lost its soul. I'd add that despite being a supposedly upmarket place, the service is abominable. The bartenders are generally scarce and smarmy. I think this leaves the Potter as the only decent pub on the Kings Road.
