Proper Pubs – Matthew Steeples selects three of South West London’s best pubs: The Duchess in Battersea, SW8, The Grenadier in Belgravia, SW1X and The Cross Keys in Chelsea, SW3.With works by the sniper-turned-snapper John Stoddart gracing the walls and around 40 gins to choose from, this lovingly restored Victorian ale house is now a destination drinking spot. Opposite the soon to be completed Battersea Power Station construction site, patrons can also dine on pie, mash and liquor and fish and chips.

Hidden behind The Lanesborough and The Berkeley Hotel and known only to locals and those told by the concierges of such establishments, this former officers’ mess has played host to King George IV, the Duke of Cambridge and Madonna. It is a favourite of the Campaign for Real Ale and is allegedly haunted by the ghost of a subaltern beaten to death for cheating at cards.

 

The Cross Keys, 1 Lawrence Street, Chelsea, SW3 5NB

Proper Pubs – Matthew Steeples selects three of South West London’s best pubs: The Duchess in Battersea, SW8, The Grenadier in Belgravia, SW1X and The Cross Keys in Chelsea, SW3.In spite of an attempt by a ruthless property developer to turn it into a mega mansion, The Cross Keys has now been rejuvenated and turned into a destination for both drinking and dining. Aside from cask ales, an all day Sunday roast is definitely one of the best on offer in London and the Scotch eggs are a definite must.

  1. I used to like going to The Grenadier with my late husband but the cobbles in the mews are a little much for me now. I suppose I could go by taxi.
