Pub Lunch, Chelsea

Where did this chill in the air come from?

Can we turn the heating on yet?

Is there somewhere cosy for lunch nearby?*

*That’s one I can answer!

After a couple of early morning meetings in pretty pastel painted Chelsea, I found myself hankering for a proper pub lunch and maybe a fire to curl up next to.

Marching off in search of bangers and mash.

Pulling pinks into Autumn with a spot of snuggly layering.

Pink duffle coat

Blush fuzzy jumper*

*the softest thing I have ever owned.

Even softer than that backless one I mentioned, everything on that site is 50% off today as it happens (use HELLYEAH as the code.)

Pink Chanel bag // Dark skinny jeans

Pink loafers

So fluffy!

A quick hop over The Kings Road, a stroll along Cheyne Walk and we stumbled upon The Cross Keys.

A local institution and a great option for something cosy, simple and classically British.

Wood panelled walls, rustic tables and chairs and a huge tub of dog biscuits for the furrier punters.

Snug as a bug in a rug.

Start with Scotch eggs, dunked in mustard.

A classic for good reason!

Then another nursery favourite, gammon, egg and chips.

Complete with huge fluffy chips and a runny yolk to dunk them in.

Or, in my case, bangers and mash.

Is there anything more satisfying than taking care of a craving with just what you wanted?

If there’s room for pudding (the correct answer is “always”) give the blackberry soufflé a go.


Or go all out with the chocolate fondant with salted caramel ice cream.

Good, proper Autumn food.

And good fuel for a girl on the go, ready to whack out a few more meetings.

Warm and cosy on the inside and out.

Funny what good a pub lunch can do! How’s your local?

    Yes I need this jumper in my life! These food posts need to stop – I’m now craving bangers and mash (I’m a little hungover so could definitely eat a full dinner right now haha).

    I think something might be a little odd with the adverts; they seem to be overplaying/playing over the top of each other and flashing to the other in short bursts.

    Anyway, I’m looking forward to your next posts,


  • Oh I love this little pub – the food is good and it’s hard to find a kinda ‘country style’ pub in London but this one I always feel gives off the right kind of vibe.

    I am obsessing over your pink toggle coat! So so so cute!!

    Oh what a cosy little place – I love the wooden bar and the walls,I can only imagine how lovely it gets when it’s a bit dark and rainy outside! I’ll need to remember this place when I’m next craving comfort food (which is pretty often…). x

  • That pink coat is absolutely gorgeous! I never used to be a fan of pink but as I’ve gotten older I find myself drawn to the color.

    That bangers and mash looks incredible!

  • Your pink coat is too cute Rosie!

  • I always imagine pub lunches as something way out in the countryside after a good walk- not in Chelsea! But that does look amazing and you don’t have to go far to get it! Your food photography always makes me hungry! haha
