About this room

Our hidden garden is a slice of heaven in our busy city. We recently installed a huge wall fountain feature and ambient lighting. A great place to chill and grab a bite to eat, or a perfect area to have an intimate conversation away from your event. Partially covered so that you've always got somewhere dry to sit.
Smoking, pets and relaxation allowed.

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!
