Builder's Arms Description

Book a table at Builder's Arms

The Chelsea residents just cannot stop talking about the Builders Arms. You won’t have to look in a pub guide to find out this is one of the best pubs in Chelsea... just ask the neighbours! Voted Morning Advertiser Pub Industry's Awards - 12th best Pub in the UK 2004. It’s the locals who always vote for the others – just to keep the Builders to themselves!

Unwind after work or preferably after a busy day of shopping in Kings Road with some of the finest food in a London pub, or just a glass of beer of champagne on the sofa to re-boot your batteries.

The Builders can be found full of local

residents most nights of the week, arriving early for a gossip before they sit down to eat.

Recently redecorated and now has a more lively, stylish décor with banquettes, unusual artwork and the most colourful bookcases. The Chelsea 30-somethings can’t believe their luck. It’s the perfect local!

“The Builder's Arms defined what a modern, but still in a way traditional pub should look like. OK, you may think it's everywhere now: mixed chairs tossed about, a sofa here and there, and a bookshelf strewn with stash and the odd book. But this pub was one of the first! Food used to be very good, and it's still above average. Had a steak there some days ago, and it was good enough - but it should be at 16 quid + fries at another 2.5... Service rather slow, unfortunately. Even with the pub only half-full you could end up waiting for 20 minutes to order food. A bit of advice: buy a drink from the bar as you get in, find a table and relax with your drink while waiting for service. After all, that's what pubs are about anyway, isn't it?”

“This place can be fun but a word of warning for 'normal' people ; your tolerance of braying rich kids will be tested and it's run by a bunch of preening lay-abouts so service is often slow and frustrating. Anyhow - the reason for this review is to ensure that no-one ever orders the food there. I had a piece of belly pork that (when it finally arrived 1 hr after it was ordered) with hindsight I think had been only half cooked under a grill. Stupidly (drunkenly) I ate it. 4 days in bed feeling as sick as I have ever felt in my life ensued. Also, the prices of the food in my case added insult to injury. Buy the expensive drinks, perve over the lazy rich tarts and marvel at what invisible force keeps those polo-shirt collars turned up if that's your bag but NEVER, EVER eat the food. Rant over.”
