About this room

At The Pensioner we do at least 40 big private hires every year so if there is something we know how to do...hmmm well this is it!

Don't believe us? Here it goes...We make enquiries simple. As in really simple. How you ask? We agree on minimum spend which is £3000 ( £2000 if you are a returning client that we know ). Don't forget that if your group is 100 strong you'll probably spend around £5000 with drinks and food combined therefore our agreement is purely on shake hands basis. YES we don't do any contracts, store your credit cards, keep them "safe" and so on.
Send us an email with an enquiry, we will invite you down at your convenience to see the place, have a quick chat and for us to see how can we help you. Once you decide to proceed you'll be invoiced for £300 deposit which is yours to spend on the night of the booking anyway. Correct! £300 that is yours. No hire fees and similar nonsense.

Food? We'll listen to you and suggest all food options after our initial conversation. We have some amazing and very well priced food packages for your group.

Arcades and Pool: All yours to use. Amazing pinballs and arcades from 90's. I mean why would you want to have a private hire in "pub" only when you can have amazing night out with your friends playing Ninja Turtles, Mortal Combat and 2000 more games. Pool table is yours to use as well.

Karaoke room: 16,000 songs and plenty of fun. Yours to use on a full private hire.

Music: We can arrange our Dj or amazing band alternatively you can bring your own.

Sounds good?
Gets even better. On top of everything we won't charge you security, door girl, cloak room and everything else. All on us!

There is a reason why we do so many private hires at The Pensioner and that is because we don't complicate. Give it a try. At the end of the day it will cost you nothing :)))

Get in touch now and let us make you help organise an amazing party.

About The Chelsea Pensioner

Situated 5 minutes from Fulham Broadway station and on the doorstep of Stamford Bridge stadium, The Chelsea Pensioner is a quirky bar built in a historic building dating back to 1862. Our air-conditioned venue consists of one large bar area, a secret garden area with seating, a karaoke room and a private darts and sports room equipped with a screen for viewing live sports, as well as fantastic acoustics for music events.

We boast a huge variety of cocktails and ales on draught and icy cold taps! We are also so proud of our kitchen; very rarely does a plate come back with a crumb of leftovers and we receive compliments on our food every day.

We are Chelsea Football Club's number one fan venue and have punters pouring out onto the streets on match days. Check out our twitter videos to see us in action! We show live sports on an 150 inch and 2 X 65 inch TVs and offer fantastic match day drinks prices. We are proud to have such a strong relationship with our regulars and often host Chelsea Legends evenings with guest footballer appearances.

We boast the longest happy hour in Chelsea from 5pm until 9pm Tuesday to Friday and the best private hire deals in the area, having catered for events ranging from Christenings to charity fundraisers, engagement celebrations to singles' nights. We offer full or part hire of the venue. Check out our website for other events taking place throughout the week.

Our cosy karaoke room has a private bar and personal bartender for a real VIP experience, plus a catalogue of more than 16000 songs for you to choose from if you're feeling brave!

Retro arcades are our new addition to this venue and we have over 2000 games to play including Ninja Turtles, Mortal Combat and many more classics.

It may sound too good to be true - you'll have to visit us to find out!
