The SurpriseWith sofas, fireplaces, and very quirky art, The Surprise is just that, a little haven in the heart of Chelsea. The wine list is chosen by John Clevely, Master of Wine, and is like the pub, small but perfectly formed. Our menu serving up "small plates" means there's no need to choose just one great British dish, but you can have many, Rupert's best is 4.

With real ales on tap, and tankards for every house in the street, just call out your house number and we'll fill it for you.
