Landlord of my local ran a bar in Kensington as well as being a Chelsea fan. He suggests the following bars. The Sporting Page in Camera Place, Hollywood Arms in Hollywood Road, the Chelsea Tap on Farm Lane, the Scarsdale Arms off Marlowes Road Earls Court and the Famous 3 Kings in West Kensington on North End Road. Hope I've got this right as I wrote the info down during a rather long session , and hope it's useful info

Thanks for that.  Won't be getting there till about 6 so only time for a couple of pints in each.


I’ve just split up with my Irish girlfriend due to her broad accent and me getting a new car.

It all went wrong when she asked me to take her in the Yarris !!!

I know the area a little bit as I seem to work in London far more than I would like these days. Some of those you’ve mentioned are decent boozers but they are a good walk from the ground - probably around 20 - 30 mins on average.

I know a couple of Chelsea season ticket holders through work and they advise that there’s literally nowhere close to the ground where away fans can drink - at least en masse.

Based on their advice and a little personal experience of the surrounding area, my recommendation is Earl’s Court. Anyone coming in via the train / tube will have to change here to Fulham Broadway which is a stone’s throw from Stamford Bridge - it’s literally a two minute ride between the two stations and is probably the quickest way to get a beer even if you’re already at the ground (other than heading in and paying stadium prices for flat beer in a plastic cup).

There are three pubs literally right outside Earl’s Court tube station - the Courtfield, The Blackbird and the Prince of Teck, all of which are decent. I’m told they’re regular haunts for Premier League away fans so should be capable of handling the thirst of 5,000 travelling Mariners.

There’s also a few places to grab a bite to eat there if needed. Nothing fancy, but there’s a Maccies and a KFC or Nando’s / Byron Burger if you’ve got a bit more time on your hands.

Just my thoughts based on what I know of the area and what I’ve heard of matchday customs. Unless official word suggests otherwise, don’t expect to enjoy a beer anywhere close to the ground.

That's a big help, Poojah, thanks for the info.

Some reasonable htoels in Earls Court at non London prices too. Got mine for less than £50. After doing quite a bit of research on the place am happy it's decent as well for that price.


No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

Bargain Jock. Even with the parasite powder it’s still cheap 😁


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,

The cockroaches have their own en suite apparently.

I have never, ever encountered a price like that in London.  Fair play, and good luck!!

Have a few pints round Earl's Court, then get the district line down to Fulham Broadway.


All I needed was the love you gave

All I needed for another day

And all I ever knew

Had a room overlooking Piccadilly Circus once (about 17 years ago) for about £40-50.
