About this space

A full venue hire gives you full and exclusive use of the whole of The Chelsea Pensioner and is ideal for a birthday or engagement party, a wedding or graduation reception, or any special event you're wanting to celebrate with a large group of friends and family. It can be yours for as little as £10-15 per head pre-agreed minimum spend.

The full venue consists of our main bar and pool table area, with a small side room on the same level, and with a karaoke room (now with 80,000+ songs) with private bar & the courtyard/garden downstairs. You will have full and exclusive use of the whole venue to do pretty much what you want.

We agree on minimum spend which is £3000 (£2000 if you are a returning client that we know ), which equates to as little as £10-15 per head based on a booking for 200 people, up to £20-30 per head if there's only 100.

You have the choice when booking, of pre-ordering food and/or drink packages from menus provided, OR, ordering both from the regular bar and food menus on the day.

With a full venue booking, we will also provide the doormen and a cloakroom facility.

A £300 deposit will be taken at the time of booking. This will be given back as yours to spend, on the date of the function, as a bar tab that can be used towards food and/or drinks. The only other deposit taken is 50% of any pre-ordered food or drink packages. The balance of these is payable in full at the time of the event.

Ordinarily, we don't do full private hires for groups under 100 people unless you place pre-orders for food and/or drink to the value of £1500 (with the 50% deposit paid at the time of booking). Also, the remaining £1500 up to the minimum spend requirement, will be guaranteed against a pre-approval on a credit card.

Please see our private hire reviews on Google, Tag Venue, Trip Advisor, Facebook and if you're unsure of anything, drop us an enquiry and we're positive we'll be able to help you sort a function to remember.

About The Chelsea Pensioner

The Chelsea Pensioner Pub, located on Fulham Road, in Kensington & Chelsea, dates from the mid 19th century. It was originally known as The Black Bull and has had a couple of other identities before becoming "The Pensioner" in 2014. The current landlords have been running the pub since 2015.

Because of the proximity, being only 200m from Stamford Bridge, there's always been a strong association with Chelsea FC and that has been successfully re-established in recent years. There is no better place to go on a Chelsea home match-day, than The Chelsea Pensioner, to get the buzzing pre-match football atmosphere. With our DJ playing all the favourite Chelsea tunes, from a few hours beforehand, right up to kick-off and then (for most weekend games), win, lose or draw, onwards into the evening after the game. A football day at The Chelsea Pensioner always a great start and/or finish to your day out at Stamford Bridge.

We are rightly known now as "The World's Number 1 Chelsea Fan Pub". But, there is a lot more to The Chelsea Pensioner than being just a football pub. We may be unashamedly blue, but on the many non-football days we have so much else to offer. We have lots of employers, some very large, nearby as well as lots of residents, neighbours, and friends. We are very much a community pub and, we have many events on throughout the year, including music, Karaoke, quizzes, even dating nights, comedy and cabaret. If nothing else, a great place to wind down with a pint or a cocktail after a long day or week in the office.

We have a great happy hour Tue - Thu from 5 till 9 pm and there is always either live sport on the TVs or great background music. We have a pool table in the main bar upstairs, a karaoke room holding up to 40 and with some 80,000 available songs in the basement, alongside our secret courtyard/garden. We have a great menu with food available all day and into the evening, including award-winning Pieminister pies & patties and huge SausageMan
