Neighborhood Eats, by the V&A and Natural History Museum (Chelsea)

Here are a few Chelsea places we've done score tallying for both travelling families on Luxe Hunts as well as for group hen hunts and prize giving ceremonies for corporate clients like Random House and Superdrug.

Honest Burgers:

Mon- Sun 09:30- 13:00
Lunch and Dinner: Mon- Sat 11:30- 23:00; Sun 11:30- 22:00

Popular with kids, Honest Burgers is just a short walk from either the NHM or the V&A. It has a cute, urban feel, and is better for small groups since the space isn’t that large. If you’re coming with a larger group, they would prefer that you call ahead two weeks in advance. Best availability is 3-6 on weekends. Honest Burgers offers mostly indoor seating but does have a few outdoor tables. Extremely friendly staff, eager to help and very attentive. Honest has both beef and chicken burgers, rosemary fries and delicious cocktails (preferred that drinks are ordered with food as the space is so small). Not extremely kid-friendly.  

Menu available online  
Prices From: 7- 13 pounds
