King's Head & Eight Bells, Chelsea
our final review
posted by jack on 9/11/2001
The name derives from the place once being two separate pubs, and there's still a split personality about it now. The interior is old style wood, with some etched glass and a dining room at the back - but at the front there's a circular pool table and a 4 foot high version of Connect 4. Throw in it's odd mix of punters (usually refined Chelsea folk and up-for-it lager boys) and it's mix of beers (not much on tap but a good choice of bottled Belgian beers) and you have a very changeable pub. We've had some good nights out here - and some really bad ones. See what you think.

Exit Sloane Square tube and head down the King's Head. After about 10 mins walk, turn left down Oakley Street and carry on toward Albert bridge. Just before the bridge, turn right along Cheyne walk. The pub will be on your right.
