The Pig's Ear is tucked away on a residential street in Chelsea, away from the hustle of the high street. It's a great find for a quiet pint or meal and I've enjoyed eating in both the pub as well as the upstairs dining room....More

Dear Andrea, It's always a pleasure to see you and many thanks for the kind words - have you had a chance to try our new lunch menu yet? It's a locals' favourite and two courses are £10... Look forward to next time, Jamie
