Kings Head & Eight Bells

Picture source: Michael Bannerman

The Kings Head & Eight Bells was situated at 50 Cheyne Walk, and used to be a hangout of the Rolling Stones.
Closed in 2002 it re-opened as a French restaurant called ‘La Chaumiere’. It still operates today as a French restaurant but is now called ‘Cheyne Walk Brasserie’.

Al Heyes Early 1970s I frequented this wonderful hostelry when a friend of mine, Barrie Staniford, was a "local" there as was Tom Baker (Dr Who - loved extremely large Gins & Tonic!!) Harry Fowler (The Army Game) and Ted Whitehead (Writer & Playwright)..
Steven Ward 1988/1989 My sister & her husband were landlords. I visited a few times as a 17/18 yr old and the place was always buzzing & some serious celeb spotting - Bryan Ferry, Simon Le Bon, Rowan Atkinson, Dustin Hoffman! A bit different from the Made in Chelsea crowd that now inhabit the brasserie there
