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.

*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?
