Cadogan Arms to relaunch with James Knappett as Culinary Director

This July will see the long-awaited reopening of London's Chelsea institution, The Cadogan Arms. The public house will be restored to its former glory with an ambitious renovation that pays homage to two centuries spent serving the local community.

Dominic Jacobs of The Running Horse Mayfair spearheads the project as Managing Director having raised capital from a number of private investors, including Jyotin, Karam and Sunaina Sethi, founders of JKS Restaurants.

Drawing from a wealth of experience in the pub and bar sector Jacobs and his team will create a food and drinks offering that celebrates the revival of community driven hospitality as locals look to their neighbourhoods for post-lockdown comfort.

James Knappett of two Michelin-star Kitchen Table in London’s Fitzrovia, will oversee the menu as Culinary Director drawing inspiration from his first-hand experience of growing up in pubs.

He will work alongside Executive Chef Alex Harper, whose time spent at both The Ledbury and The Harwood Arms is sure to cement the public house’s food offering as one of London’s most celebrated with best-in-class British produce.

Drinks at The Cadogan Arms will showcase exclusive beers, cask and craft ales alongside an extensive wine list and contemporary cocktails.

Jacobs commented, “Dating back to the 1700’s, The Cadogan Arms is one of Chelsea’s most enduring public houses’. The team are excited to once again be able to open the doors to the local community and deliver a gold standard public house experience that honours the rich history of the venue.”
