Food & Drink

Unexpectedly good pub food

Covering two stories in Chelsea, this fireplace'd pub's country-house ease is playfully disturbed by paintings of pirates, Frankenstein's monster in earrings, and dogs in full military uniform, with ale taps of Doombar, Sharps, and Windsor complementing Brit-tapas like Stinking Bishop Macaroni & Cheese and shepherd's pie w/ hogget shoulder (from extra-tender year-old lamb), plus cunning desserts like the fastidiously segregated Eton Tidy, because at that august academy, the mess is really more an emotional thing.
