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.
