Very tasty food. Had the sea bream on a bed of Mac n cheese which seems random but worked really well. Pub is quite unassuming from the outside and the interior is quirky. We loved it and would definitely recommend

Five of us had a great Sunday lunch in the upstairs dining room - which was lovely and bright with windows on 2 sides [and the sun was out]. Only drawback was that when the restaurant was full, it was quite noisy. Well recommended.

The Pig's Ear - a traditional english pub with great environment and ambience. the food (fish and chips ) were simply delicious and the sharing platter with scotch eggs was finger licking . the mulled wine was not that great but great experience overall.

Disappointed with the average food, which was served cold. When we shared this with the manager, she was really defensive which made us feel quite uncomfortable. We're locals, but won't return again.

Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's
upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops,
eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at
its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely
unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this
showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price
tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down
pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal
