Modern "Chelsea-type" public house. I have been in plenty of times, but thatís mostly because I work nearby. They have 3 cask ales on which thankfully usually includes some Harviestoun. The Atlantic I had last time was rather quaffable. They have a dining room at the back and the food is rather good. An added bonus are the pool tables upstairs, which is a rarity in Chelsea. Not bad.

The Cadoganís a very posh pub located on Kings Road. The ambiance is fine, like many other slightly upscale pubs in West London. The tap list isnít all that interesting - 3 beers on cask plus another 6 or so macro choices on keg. The cask options included a rebadged beer from Twickenham as well as stuff from Caledonian and Adnams. The bottle list actually offers some decent stuff - Oakham Citra, a stout from Pin Up, and beers from Bristol Beer Factory were available. Be sure to check bottling dates, a bottle of Citra I ordered was well past its best before date. Luckily, the staff are well trained, and they were happy to change it. Overall, this isnít a place I would journey to, but thereís worse choices along the Kings Road.
