Square Meal Review of The Phene ?

Known to all as the ‘Feeney’, this Chelsea boozer was once famous as George Best’s local – although the place has changed a great deal since the footie firebrand drank here back in the day. Inside, it now sports a high-ceilinged saloon bar lit by Droog chandeliers, with sentimental artefacts and a library of antique books – perfect for the Made in Chelsea set, who can be founding knocking back house mojitos and shooters before hitting Boujis. During the day, the conservatory-style dining room and luxuriant heated garden are a draw for lunching ladies and others who feed on plates of pumpkin, artichoke and goats’ cheese tart, tempura cod or slow-cooked shoulder of lamb with parsnip purée and port jus washed down with bottles from the Euro-accented wine list. Alternatively, a stripped-back ‘deli’ dispenses all-day sharing platters, sandwiches, cheeses and charcuterie.

  1. The other day we ended in The Phene, a lovely venue in Chelsea with multiple spaces, including a pub style bar, a nice conservatory dinning room, a private dinner first floor space, and finally an amazing beer garden. We got the salt and Schezuan pepper squid for starter, really nice good heat. Also the gazpacho, texture was a bit odd but good flavours...

    THIS LITTLE PIGGY LOVES FOOD! :: THE PHENE

    I am not ashamed to admit I am a big Made in Chelsea fan...in fact I have never missed an episode!! It is such car crash tv, I cannot stop watching it. Plus it is literally the opposite to reality tv.... completely scripted & 99.9% of them don't even live in Chelsea!! However according to a recent episode Lucy Watson's dad has bought The Phene in Chelsea so I dragged my fiancé for lunch there this week to see what it was all about.For once the sun was shining (ish) & we were very happy to see the pub has a lovely garden / terrace & it wasn't jam packed. There were a couple of yummy mummies & businessmen & then a couple who I am sure were Made in Chelsea fans too! We sat down & the waiter was very prompt in offering us drinks & menus. My fiancé was over the moon - they did his favourite French drink Ricard, a lovely rose from Provence & a charcuterie platter! We obviously ordered all the above as well as squid and two cheeseburgers with fries (no wonder I struggle with my weight)! The menu had a good selection - sharing platters, sandwiches & then smarter choices like rack of lamb and wild sea bass.Thankfully we weren't in any kind of rush as from then on the service wasn't the quickest. We enjoyed our drinks & people watching (I had spied Hugo Taylor having a "business meeting") so that kept us amused.  The squid then arrived & in true me fashion I demolished it before even thinking of taking a photo - it was delicious, not greasy, a good dip & flavoursome. We then waited another 15 minutes for our charcuterie platter - it was worth the wait though - delicious salami & chorizo.While chowing down on this, our burgers arrived without the requested cheese so these were sent back. A burger without cheese is a no go in my book!!They arrived back 5 minutes later & were delicious & the fries were great - however still lacking in a bit of cheese!! The only other complaint was they would only cook the burgers medium or well done - apparently due to rules from the council. Very strange that other Chelsea & Kensington restaurants don't have this problem....To round the meal off we decided to have a cocktail - I went for a porn star martini which even came with a shot of champagne - how very Made in Chelsea! I would definitely come back here again, a perfect spot on a summer's day & I expect with those kind of cocktails, it would be fun at night too!www.thephene.comThe Phene9 Phene StreetLondonSW3 5NY020 7352 9898
