Neighbourhood Watch: Belgravia

Neighbourhood Watch: Belgravia

Our local guide to Belgravia, London gives you a snapshot of this largely residential district that covers the best of Chelsea, Kensington, Pimlico and Victoria. We take a look at the best things to see and do in Belgravia, specifically the streets around our iconic London pubs —The Alfred Tennyson, The Thomas Cubitt and The Orange—that call this neighbourhood home. As you’d expect, there are plenty of things to do in Belgravia that suit all tastes.

WHERE TO EAT IN BELGRAVIA

The Alfred Tennyson
Housed in a handsome Georgian townhouse, The Alfred Tennyson is tucked behind the bustling shopping streets of Knightsbridge and Sloane Street, but once you step inside, you could feel a million miles away. Open for lunch and dinner every day, as well as for a traditional Sunday Roast—not to be missed if you’re visiting the UK! Motcomb Street is like a secret, beautiful corner of Belgravia with a mixture of shops and restaurants to explore. With Ottolenghi and Pantechnicon next door, The Alfred Tennyson is just moments from all the glories of Hyde Park.

The Thomas Cubitt
A unique Georgian Pub located in the heart of Belgravia and just a short walk from Victoria Station and Sloane Square, on possibly one of the most perfect streets in London—well that’s what we think. With neighbours like Jo Loves, Moyses Stevens and Philip Treacey we’re in fairly special company. Come to The Thomas Cubitt for lunch and stay in this little corner of Belgravia for the day. It’s central London but a quiet corner, away from the hubbub but with some seriously lovely stores literally on the doorstep.

Peggy Porschen
There’s a lot of pink…..and most importantly, a lot of amazing cupcakes. It’s one of the most popular places to visit in Belgravia. You’ve most likely seen it already on Instagram or TikTok. It’s pretty tempting just to take a look. From intricately decorated cupcakes to exquisite layer cakes, each creation is a masterpiece that showcases the artistry and craftsmanship behind the brand.

The Orange
A proper neighbourhood hotel in a leafy corner of Belgravia. The Orange stands at the heart of Pimlico Road’s Design District with beautiful antique shops, textile shops and designers on the doorstep. Orange Square is the home to Pimlico Farmer’s Market every Saturday, it’s like a village in the heart of central London. We are perfectly located to get to wherever your plans take you but with a lovely variety of places to go or stroll past to get the complete London experience. We are only moments away from Sloane Square, The Kings Road and The Saatchi Gallery and just around the corner is Elizabeth Street—a beautiful street with an exceptional row of shops and stores including our sister pub, The Alfred Tennyson.

For the main bar area at The Orange, @georgie_pearman chose the colour ‘Clove’ created by interior designer Edward Bulmer. A spicy warm beige packed full of natural pigments to heat it up and really wrap the colour around the space.
This complex and grounding neutral perfectly complements the convivial atmosphere of the pub’s central space.

Visit @theorangepublichouse the next time you’re in Belgravia and step into the ambience of Clove #CubittHouse #LondonPubs
This month's #DishWithTish is a delicious Summer salad of roasted peach, pistachio, mint, dill, watercress and salted sheep’s cheese.

Inspired by the Eastern Mediterranean with contrasting flavours and textures. Roasting peaches this way intensifies their natural sweetness and flavour (it’s also good with ice-cream!)

Chef Director, @ben.tish says - ‘I like to layer this on a platter as opposed to a bowl for a visually beautiful presentation- a centrepiece even. Excellent with grilled pork or lamb'
