Chelsea's pubs have suffered significant decline over the last few years, with scores shutting up or ratcheting themselves more and more upmarket. If you're in SW1 and want a pub the way pubs used to be, then the Rose & Crown is the one for you. Tatty on the outside, the interior hasn't changed much since probably the 1980s. A huge bar dominates proceedings, and although the old lunch counter is now filled with bottles of wine, rather than cling wrapped sarnies, not much else is representative of the noughties. A couple of ales are on offer and Thai food if you're peckish, while a pool table fills a good deal of the space. The last remaining older geezers who still live in the area prop up the counter, bantering with the landlady but otherwise there's a mix of wealthier student types and after work drinkers; we're pretty sure a few chauffeurs come here for a soft drink while waiting for their fares to finish shopping, too.

I found this pub quite by accident whilst visiting London for the first time. The patrons were friendly, and interesting to chat with. ( I met British military veterans, a Japanese artist, an Australian Buddhist and massage therapist, an Irish storyteller and poet, and an English karate sensei. ) This warm and relaxed pub would be termed a "neighborhood bar" here in the States. The food was terrific, and the landlady stocks a nice selection of spirits. This little pub is a real gem.
