Old and New – Sloanes

New series contrasting the ‘old’ and the ‘new’ begins with Sloane Rangers

 

Back in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Lady Diana Spencer used to drink at The Admiral Codrington whilst Sloanes named Perdita and Peregrine downed gin like it was water in The Australian in Milner Street.

 

Loud braces and yellow cords sold like hot cakes and Peter York was king of all he surveyed. Now, in a new era, this socially elite set of characters have had to evolve and though the majority of Kensington and Chelsea is now colonised by wealthy foreigners, Sloane Rangers are still be found braying in Kings Road, SW3.

  1. Oh dear, now in my mid-forties now I am too young to have been a true Sloane Ranger but I tick all the boxes. Last time I went to 151 I was asked if I was collecting my children.

    If I was a New Sloane that would probably send me to therapy, but instead, pass the gin.

  2. Wasn’t there another pub, near the Admiral Codrington, frequented by Sloanes. The Austrailian Arms, I don’t hear much about it these days. Is it now a gastro-pub?

    • The Australian is an interior design shop now. The Shuckborough is a Baker & Spice cafe and The Moore Arms has been turned into three houses. One is owned by the fraudster Sheel Khemka’s mother, Dame Asha Khemka.
