Located just off the King’s Road in Chelsea (next to Phat Phuc Noodle Bar), Stanley's Chelsea - the first opening for restaurateur Hugh Stanley (who used to run the nearby Sydney Arms) - boasts a large outdoor terrace which has a garden feel to both the décor and the menu. Enter through a floral archway flanked by olive trees and tiered shrub planting into the flagstone courtyard area.
The courtyard comes complete with olive trees, tinkling fountains, a reclaimed timber bar and flower-festooned parasols with upholstered booths separated by wooden and glass screens, whilst the indoors has an orangery-style feel with timber shelving, planters with mid-century style chairs. MasterChef: The Professionals finalist Olivia Burt - late of Claridge’s - is the head chef overseeing a small-plates menu which focuses on British seasonal produce. A perfect spot for dining, drinking, relaxing or entertaining friend.
