Located just off Chelsea's famous King's Road is The Phoenix, a warm and welcoming pub with a few quirky and colourful touches to its character. It's an all-day hangout with plenty of cosy corners and an outdoor terrace for the summertime, with a fresh menu featuring ethically-sourced produce and a strong beer game that showcases British cask ales and continental classics at the same time.

Geronimo Inns' first and foremost venture, The Chelsea Ram remains a great little haunt to those in the know. Mixing up nursery room décor and pub styling to create a cosy and welcoming atmosphere, bright striped wallpaper jostles for space with vibrant prints and squishy soft furnishings. Quirky rather than busy, the interiors are interspersed with bright, white walls, big windows and spacious loitering room.
