user reviews of Chelsea Bar (@ The World's End), Chelsea

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

No wonder. It took at least 15 mins to get our first drink. It seemed much longer.
Feel sorry for the chef because the food is wonderful for the price but the service is appalling.
Music too loud downstairs.
There was a lovely English manager here when we came before and we came back because the food was good and he was charming. He has been replaced by an older grumpy Asian bloke who was useless - the few staff left appear to also detest him. We gave it a 2nd chance because of the niceness of the staff and quality of the food. The atmosphere was awful.
We will not be back

First class food and service in the 1st floor restaurant.
I had been a bit dubious when I was told the old Worlds End had been suggested but it is excellent and dramtically improved on it's predecessors.
We had Pork Belly, Sea Bass, a very nice tender Rump Steak, Crab Risotto and Lamb Sweetbreads. All cooked impeccably.
Service was efficient, friendly, knowledgable and charming.
Prices on food are amazingly cheap for Chelsea - well done all, keep it up - wine list a little limted but sensibly priced.
Later on in the lounge bar there was an excellent DJ with chilled out tunes and lovely cocktails. It is part of the company that owns Lab bar in Soho, so no surprise there.
This bit of the Kings Road needs somewhere decent.

This place is amazing! i remember the bad old days of the world's end, but these guys have really turned it around. the bar is unrecognisable and the bistro on the top floor is just beautiful. we went to eat, and were seriously shocked at the quality of the food. i don't think there's anywhere else like this on the king's road. the charcuterie platter includes old-school classics like pork rillettes, alongside fried zampone, a home-made pate (everything, our waitress explained to us, is made from scratch - even the mayo). we shared a charcuterie to start and then cracked on with a rump steak with dauphinoise potatoes (which made a welcome change from chips), and a crab risotto that at 15 quid seemed pricey for a plate of rice - not a bit of it. this was premium risotto, better than i've had in most italian restaurants, with cornish crab piled on top of it. the cocktails were bang on-target, the staff professional and helpful, the atmosphere is great. we're locals, so we'll definitely be back, but i'd make a trek for this place across... well across the river at any rate. real class on the king's road.

Think I posted this in the wrong place earlier...I should add that it is now called the CHELSEA BAR & is no longer the World's End (Thank Goodness).

Very Classy. What a delightful transformation -beautiful chandeliers adorn this modern, stylish bar.
Lovely cocktails, a glass of champagne or two and beers for the boys. The night we went there was a good DJ playing chillout music and a very nice atmosphere. A very dishy barman made us very welcome. There is table service and downstairs has private rooms too - with karaoke.
It is somewhere my friends and I instinctively felt comfortable and is undoubtedly female friendly.
We have been back once since our initial visit and love it.
A great improvement. I will be back regularly.
