Neighbourhood Watch: Belgravia

Our About Town Guides are to give you a snapshot of the local area and some neighbourhood highlights around our pubs. Here we take a look at Belgravia and specifically the streets around The Alfred Tennyson, The Thomas Cubitt and The Orange.

The Alfred Tennyson

Tucked behind the busy shopping streets of Knightsbridge and Sloane Street, but it could be a million miles away. Motcomb Street is like a secret, beautiful corner of Belgravia. With Ottolenghi and The Fine Cheese Co next door and moments from all the glories of Hyde Park.

Fine Cheese Co

With its very own courtyard restaurant this cheese shop is a cheese shop extraordinaire. It’s only standalone London store so worth a trip to pick up your favourite cheese or maybe stay a while and enjoy breakfast or lunch here too. It’s not just cheese! There’s an incredible selection of charcuterie and salads as well as some wonderful breakfast dishes. 

Pantechnicon

The extraordinary Pantechnicon and right next to The Alfred Tennyson. A Nordic and Japanese village in the heart of London. Food, drinks and shopping.

Ottolenghi

The famous deli. Their Belgravia outpost is largely a take-away. They sure know a thing or two about window displays and it’s almost impossible just to walk past. 

Rococo Chocolates

This is literally chocolate heaven. A beautiful shop on Motcomb Street packed to the rafters with chocolate. All in the most beautiful packaging too.

The Thomas Cubitt

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.

Moyses Stevens

Purveyors of beautiful bouquets of flowers. A wonderful florist with the most eye-catching displays. Who doesn’t love flowers?

Jo Loves

From Jo Malone, and her only store, selling some seriously wonderful smelling perfumes and more.

Instead of leafing through the catalogue you can actually visit the shop, right on our doorstep.

Philip Treacey

Milliner to the stars. Hat royalty. 

Peggy Porschen

Instagram heaven. There’s a lot of pink….. and a lot of amazing cakes. Pretty tempting just to take a look.

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.
