Summary

John Brinkley’s “stalwart of Chelsea nightlife” provides “a good service to the Eurotrash and ageing lotharios brigade”. “The food won’t set the world alight”, but it’s a “buzzy” venue, with a “great garden conservatory”.

Summary

A “good”, “well-priced” wine list and an “excellent atmosphere” are key to the enduring success of John Brinkley’s “neighbourhood stand-by” in a sidestreet near Chelsea & Westminster Hospital. Despite “pretty average cooking” and “pleasant if slow service”, it “serves its Chelsea fanbase well (mostly ageing roués on the pull, and with a strong leaning to Eurotrash!)”

Summary

“A lively spot, with an excellent wine list” – key selling points of John Brinkley’s Chelsea perennial, near the C&W hospital. “The food isn’t bad, but it’s unlikely to be the main attraction to the twenty-something, local bright-young-things that seem so attracted to the place”.

Summary

A very “Chelsea crowd” is a defining feature of this “lively” bar/restaurant (near the C&W Hospital), as is John Brinkley’s “excellent wine list”, which is notably reasonably priced. No great prizes for the “brasserie-type fare” however – “it can be terrible”.
