Tucked away on a discreet residential street in Chelsea, The Cross Keys is a stone’s throw from Chelsea Embankment and makes it the perfect regular haunt for guests looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the King’s Road.

This Chelsea institution, open since 1708, combines capital-cool with country warmth to allow guests to enjoy laid-back luxury that brings the British countryside the heart of the city.

Come for thoughtful British dishes, fine wines, real cask ales & classic cocktails, friendly & knowledgeable service.




Our food is creative, well-considered and thoroughly British with the menu changing daily. Whatever the time of year, please do ask us for advice on what has been locally, responsibly and seasonably sourced.
