This is reasonably local to me and the food is passable for overpriced pub grub in Chelsea. The problem is that the service is so bad that it spoils the experience. The place is chronically understaffed and the attending staff are under trained. Expect to...More

We visited The Phoenix as a group of 13 for our Christmas get together. We were so impressed with the service, especially given the size of the group! Iliana was our main server on the night and she did a wonderful job - she was...More

If you want to eat good food and then chill for a while, this is the place. We took full advantage of the whole place. We started at the restaurant in the back, then drank Pimms on side terrace, which is on a dead end...More

We went to the Phoenix recently and really enjoyed the atmosphere. Staff friendly though the poor barman was rather rushed of his feet for a while before he got help. We then decided to stay on for dinner and the burger and sausages were excellent...More

We rrecently had an extended lunch at the Phoenix. It's in a quiet street away from the general hubbub. Meals and staff were excellent, and the pub has a friendly, comfortable ambience. A great spot to catch up with friends if you're in the area.

Stopped at The Phoenix for a Sunday lunch for two and was very impressed. Welcoming, stylish and one of the best pub lunches I've had in ages - lemony turbot with asparagus - really delicious, served by cheery professional staff - good one!

In the Geronimo Inns stable, which is an arm of Young & Co Brewery (which was bought up by Charles Wells). As such the house beers are pretty average, but it does stock a few more interesting guests. We liked the furnishings and ambience. Prices...More

Food here is not consistent. Far too hit and miss guess they don't have a regular chef. Good location and when the food does arrive some is very good such as bangers and mash. Seafood is good also but not regular. Pity as a cracking...More

Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's
upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops,
eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at
its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely
unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this
showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price
tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down
pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal
