About the Pub

A delightful Surprise this pub indeed is, hidden away, as it is, in the backstreets of Chelsea, though its name originates from that of the ship that bore Napoleon's body back to France in 1820.

Reopened post-Covid and now leased to Jack Greenall, a scion of the Greenall Whitley brewing family. The pub features a bar and 28-cover restaurant area plus a private dining room. The general manager had previously been at the Harwood Arms in Fulham and the chef comes from the Rabbit in Chelsea.

Four ales at date of survey, including a Ringwood house-branded ale.
