Oliver Brown's Three Favourite Chelsea Pubs

OB's favourite Chelsea pubs   With St George's Day falling on a weekend this year, what better excuse to round up our favourite spots for a traditional English pint? We're spoilt for choice here in Chelsea with a wealth of options for weekend drinking and dining, but here are our three favourite pubs.   THE SYDNEY ARMS, 70 Sydney Street, Chelsea. Known as London's racing pub, The Sydney Arms has a proud sporting heritage and is one of the last independently owned pubs in the Chelsea area. Here you'll find fine contemporary food (try the duck scotch eggs!) and of course top quality beers, ales and wines - all in an elegant, stylish environment.     THE PIG'S EAR, 35 Old Church Street, Chelsea. Head to The Pig's Ear (owned by Frank Lampard and his father) - a proper Chelsea gastropub perfectly located between King's Road and the River Thames. You'll find a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and delicious brasserie-style food in the upstairs oak-panelled dining room, with regularly-changing menus. Make sure you try one of their traditional cask ales.     THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON, 63 Eaton Terrace, Chelsea. The Duke of Wellington is a truly traditional London pub. During the summer months, grab a spot outdoors for relaxed eating and drinking in the sunshine, and in winter the roaring fire is perfect for warming up with a pint. And after a spot of lunch, why not pop into the Oliver Brown store? We're just a stone's throw away.   Here's to a summer of fine dining and proper pints. Cheers!
