Best Places for Craft Beer in Chelsea

Jan 4, 2018

This famously upmarket borough is renowned for having some of the best boozers in the capital. With such a range of quality watering holes, it can be a hard task knowing where’s best for craft beer in Chelsea.

Handily, we’ve helped you out with some of our favourites for the best places to grab a craft beer in the borough.

Here’s a few of them:

The Cooper’s Arms

How many pubs can claim to have a moose head more famous than they are and a corner dedicated entirely to canine patrons?

The striking Cooper’s Arms is one such pub and their fame is backed up by an impressive menu of traditional gastropub style food and drinks.

Of course, you’re here for the craft beer and Cooper’s has a solid selection of local and international brews to choose from. Just be sure to give Ruby the Moose a swig to keep with tradition.

The Pig’s Ear Chelsea

Swing by The Pig’s Ear and you might find Prince William having a pint in the corner, this place is allegedly a local favourite.

Frank Lampard’s pub, this brasserie is famed for its locally sourced menu (venison with a redcurrant jus style of grub), but the craft beer selection is nothing to be sniffed at either.

There’s a range of British and international cask ales, as well as Frank’s own signature pale, made down the road at The London Beer Factory.

The Builders Arms

The Builders Arms is the flagship pub of Geronimo Inns and for good reason. Kitted out with quirky interiors and tucked away off the bustling Kings Road, this trendy pub is great for an after-work drink.

There’s a range of revolving guest ales, alongside a decent range of craft beers to work through.

Get away from the crowded centre and enjoy a relaxed pint or two in this Georgian townhouse.

The Waterside

A classic English pub with a modern twist. The Waterside is decked out in leather sofas and bare-wood floors, whilst offering sweeping views of the Thames from Chelsea Harbour.

Views and vintage furniture aren’t the only attractions on offer of course, and The Waterside offers a good range of craft beers to sip riverside.

If you get peckish, tuck into the British-Med infused menu, with some great tasting, albeit limited options.
