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

Whole Venue

at The Chelsea Pensioner

Fulham Broadway Station

The Full space consists of the main bar and pool table area, a small side room on the same level, 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 space 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 £20 per head based on a booking for 150 people.

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.

    Great venue. Hired the karaoke room for my 40th and the venue and staff made it a birthday to remember. Our bar lady Faye was so accommodating and put up with our terrible singing throughout the night. The room never felt overcrowded and was perfect for my party of 30 people. I would highly recommend this place.

    1.The service was amazing. If there was a problem, they tried their best to resolve it which was impressive to me.
    2. I would definitely use their services again. It was a welcoming venue
    3. Staff were friendly
    4. It’s a decent spot

    1. The karaoke was difficult to set up on our own and didn’t work towards the end (when we really wanted it).
    2. No storage place for our extra things, so we took up seating space.
    3. I didn’t like the way the security guard handled a situation that we were wrong in (I hold my hands up to that). He automatically thought we would lie and so he came in aggressive, like he had spoken to us before regarding that situation to which he didn’t.

    What a great team. Damian couldn’t have made the process of planning the party easier. Then on the day, the bar staff were fantastic. Friendly and helpful, several guests made a point of telling me how lovely they had been.
    The space is great, enjoyed the pool table, darts, and courtyard garden. Then after a few refreshments the queue for the karaoke began to form.... Great night, thanks to all the team.

    We hired the venue for a sports end of season party and don’t think we could have picked a better place! It’s was a perfect fit with around 150-200 of us without being too crowded!

    Damian helped cater for all our needs and made the whole process completely stress free. He even ordered in our favourite liquor especially and did great deals on the night!

    The staff were awesome and made the night super fun! The karaoke room was a huge success and all in all a grand night was had!

    We used our own playlist and had albums of photos up on the screens around the pub which were great personal touches!

    We would have loved the karaoke room to be open all night!

    This place is amazing. Nikki went above and beyond to make our event perfect and it worked out fantastically. She even made us tailored signs for the doors! We all loved the venue, they had everything you could need (screen, microphone, wifi), and all at the right price. Plus, the staff immediately feels like a friend you've known since you were kid. 10/10 will return, hold more events here, and recommend to others.
