The Rose

Picture source: T C


The Rose was situated at 86 Fulham Road. This pub closed in 1996 and is now used as a bar/restaurant which was reputedly where Kate Middleton had her hen night.

A beautifully furnished Victorian terraced pub on the main road. It had a magnificent Edwardian Bass mirror overlooking the front bar which I saw being demolished, my eyes not believing what I was seeing, the day after the pub closed. Used to serve the best pint of London Pride in Chelsea. Was re-opened as a bar called Cactus Blue, which amazingly is still there, proving the fact that there's no accounting for taste.

No longer the Cactus Blue, however still a bar/restaurant.

I worked as a barman there in the summer of 1989 for Barry Cannon. I was an American student on a work visa. Beautiful pub, and I agree, we served the best pint of London Pride (and ESB) in town. Was a live-in pub with a fringe theater. Excellent experience, although I often had “the piss taken out of me” by the regulars.

Now reopened as The Hunters Moon.
