Happy hour

Always love coming to the Henry Root for a post work cocktail or three! Drinks in Chelsea can be expensive so this is a favourite of ours when we want 2 for 1 cocktails. The martinis are particularly good!

Great service on a quiet Sunday afternoon. Ken the barman was fab but the surly manageress seemed to do nothing except bark orders at everyone and very inattentive! Definitely recommend the place but she needs to do some work.

We had a very bad experience in there. We had the Crab Avocado Toast as starter. It was Avocado mainly and barely saw crab on it. We didn't like it and left half of the portion on the plate. When the staff collected the dishes, she didn't care if we didn't like the food and took the plates away without... More

The three of us had a lovely Sunday lunch here. The ingredients were the freshest of the other four restaurants at which we ate in Chelsea this week. In fact the Sunday Roast menu looked so good we will probably eat there again tonight. Nice friendly service and ample servings.

Well.......can't review the food or the service as on entering and being asked if we want a table for 4..........my friends and I had a little discussion and instantly the guy changed his mind and said there was a private function on. Basically he clearly didn't think we were good enough for the establishment, how very rude.....maybe next time we... More

I have been in this restaurant over 50 times, as it is my local just around the corner. So I never thought of writing a review. The restaurant, however, deserves a review, as it has always been a very warm, friendly place with very good food. Yes, there might be occasions when your wine does not arrive immediately to your...

We popped into The Henry Root after visiting the Little Black Gallery which is next-door-but-one. It was quite early for lunch, and we ended up having a late breakfast, along with a couple of beers and glasses of prosecco. There's a lovely relaxed atmosphere inside, with staff clearly recognising and knowing regular customers, and we were immediately given a warm... More

We dropped in here early on a Saturday evening after watching Chelsea. We took advantage of happy hour and had a couple of cocktails which were good and two for one. We had a good meal of grouse for me and venison for my wife, both cooked well and tasty, washed down with a good bottle of wine. The service... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
