Hot Cross Bun Doughnuts

Bread Ahead, Pavilion Road’s much-loved bakery, has launched a limited edition Hot Cross Bun Doughnut and this is one you dough-n’t want to miss!

About Time Magazine has described it as the ‘ultimate Easter treat’ and one of the finest mash-ups for Easter and we cannot wait to try it. Their famous doughnut recipe is laced with raisins, candied peel and a hot cross bun mixed spice and is filled with a smooth vanilla custard to take the traditional hot cross bun that one step further.

They will be available from 3 – 15 April and once they’ve gone, they’ve gone!

Pubs in Chelsea

Chelsea is filled with some of the most handsome pubs. Whether you want a relaxing gastropub, somewhere with an evening buzz or a place for a lingering weekend session, we have compiled only a handful of suggestions to cater for your needs.

The Cross Keys

1 Lawrence Street, SW3 5nB

With it’s celebrated history and famous patrons, The Cross Keys is the oldest and one of the  most popular pubs in Chelsea. Built in 1708, it has a long list of iconic visitors who have frequently passed through its doors, including artists Turner and Whistler, writer Agatha Christie and musicians, Bob Marley and The Rolling Stones. The best afternoons are spent in front of the roaring fire on the plush leather sofas, made all the better with plates of their home-made sausage rolls and scotch eggs.

The Chelsea Potter

119 King’s Road, SW3 4PL

The Chelsea Potter was built in 1842 as the ‘Commercial Tavern’, however its name changed in 1958 after William de Morgan, the founder of the Chelsea Arts Pottery. Its positioning on the King’s Road and long standing history made it a favourite of the likes of Jimi Hendrix and its popularity still remains today. The outdoor seating sees drinkers spilling out onto the buzzy road and gives its reputation as one of the best spots for people watching.

The Surprise

6 Christchurch Street, SW3 4AJ

Just around the corner from Tite Street, where Whistler and Oscar Wilde once entertained, this pub is one of the best surprises in Chelsea. The gastropub has a bold menu filled with quintessentially British dishes created with the freshest ingredients and a fantastic wine list to match. It’s extremely popular with the residents on Christchurch Street; each house has its own tankard to fill with ale.

The Phene

9 Phene Street, SW3 5NY

With a heritage stretching back to 1853, this really is a Chelsea institution. It’s famed for its piece-de-resistance; The Phene Garden, a green oasis and the perfect spot for a drink in the sunshine. It also offers some very sophisticated pub-grub, and since its 2017 renovation, now provides even more delicious food in a relaxed and luxurious setting with a  fantastic range of options for vegans, vegetarians and coeliacs.

The Sydney Arms

70 Sydney Street, SW3 6NJ

This lively local pub has earned its reputation as one of London’s leading racing pubs. Be sure to find a high profile face in the business who will be gripped to a race on one of the pub’s many screens, or having a catch-up with other racing enthusiasts. This is a prime spot for cheering on your favourite sporting star or relaxing at the bar with friends with a plate of their award winning Newmarket sausages.

Hopefully there will be somewhere to take your fancy which will soon become your ‘local’!
