La Poule au Pot – a venerable French Restaurant

One of London’s most venerable restaurants, La Poule au Pot has hardly changed in 50 years. The atmosphere is still very Gallic – more so even than the cuisine – and very romantic. Minimalism has yet to manifest its bleak presence inside. Outside, Chelsea has seen the bohemians depart and the billionaires arrive, a depressing change reflected inevitably a bit in the prices. At lunch time, however, the fixed price menu is still good value. The pleasant house wine comes in huge unmarked bottles and the waiter makes a very rough guess as to how much you have drunk. La Poule au Pot is now open all day and in summery weather you can sit outside in Mozart Square (not its postal address NB)and watch the world roll by. At night it is a lot more expensive but even more romantic.

La Poule au Pot has been offering (fairly) French cuisine in a very Gallic atmosphere for over 50 years. During that time the area around it – Chelsea – has changed hugely, but thankfully La Poule au Pot has not. It is still on Mozart Square, at the junction of Pimlico Road and Ebury Street, in London SW1.
