I actually think this is quite an under rated place. Decent beer and food. While not up to the standards of the pubs in Kinerton Street still worth a visit.

Very likeable smallish backstreet pub with character, well kept beer and decent service. Will return.

Rude barman practically threw my drink at me. Guinness was foul. Never coming back here!!

The Tea Clipper is a pleasant wood pannelled single room and despite the inevitable overflow from the nearby shopping streets it managed to retain a reasonable atmosphere on my midafternoon visit. It is located at the bottom end of the very pleasant Montpelier Sq ( I seem to remember a second pub at the rear right hand of the square years ago but that seems to have gone)

Ales were Marston EPA, Ringwood Best and, my choice, Hobgoblin which turned out to be rather good.

A word of warning - the toilets are not signposted properly and are in fact up the staircase on the front wall opposite the bar

If you are out and about in Knightsbridge the Tea Clipper along with the Paxtons Head are about the best options

Situated in a Knightsbridge side street not too far from Harrods is The Tea Clipper, a single bar street corner pub. The pleasant interior features bare boards and much wood panelling, with many shipping photos and prints. We learn that the pub was established in 1863, although it doesn't have that "olde pub" feel to it.

Perhaps not surprisingly, there's a rather upmarket ambience and prices for both food and drink are predictably high. There's no feeling that this is in any way a community local, but one that has set out its stall to pick up passing trade from Harrods shoppers and museum visitors.

On my recent visit, beers on were Ringwood Best, Marstons EPA and Pedigree. The Ringwood Best - 3.30p - was in good form.

This is a reasonable enough establishment, but it's not really a drinkers pub, and there's better alternatives not too far away.
