He has stores worldwide from Miami to Moscow, but now interior designer Timothy Oulton has returned back to the UK to open his first pub.
The Chelsea Pig is a bit of an SW3 landmark, having been around since the 1890s. Now for the 2020s it's getting a new lease of life. Obviously, design is to the fore with a moonstone bar, vintage furniture from Timothy's own collection and lots of leather.
The food will be classic British pub food, for example:
Terrine of Rabbit with grain mustard, heritage carrots and sourdough crisps
Stargazy pie with langoustine and a puff pastry crown
Hereford Dry-Aged Rib-Eye with treacle marinade and café de Paris hollandaise
Drinks are in the capable hands of General Manager Michele Ridolfi, who used to be at Scarfes Bar. As this is Chelsea, it's a pretty safe bet there'll be plenty of Champagne on ice here too.
