Rustic yet chic, stylish and full of charm, The Hunter’s Moon is Chelsea’s latest local and the only place to be seen in South West London. The newly opened pub and dining room – named after the orange glowing full moon that appears in the night sky between October and November each year – offers an atmospheric and buzzing setting on the ever-fashionable Fulham Road.
Open seven days a week, The Hunter’s Moon, founded by Oliver Marlowe and Hubert Beatson-Hird, offers a daily-changing menu of modern European dishes alongside an extensive and comprehensive drinks list. Whether you’re brunching, lunching, dining with friends or just having an after-work drink, The Hunter’s Moon has it all.
DRINKING & DINING
In the kitchen, Chef Director Oliver Marlowe has created an exciting menu showcasing classic British favourites alongside more innovative choices, using the best seasonal ingredients. Expect the likes of smoked haddock fishcakes with warm tartare sauce, poached egg, samphire and chive; beef wellington with cocotte potatoes, crispy trompettes and Madeira sauce; and blackberry and custard pavlova with pink praline crunch. A blackboard will champion a range of meat cuts and daily specials, whilst those looking for a more casual bite can choose from a bar menu of snacks and sharing plates. Think hearty scotch eggs and sausage rolls, alongside courgette and ricotta croquettes and steak tartare.
Come weekends, indulge in a Saturday brunch with dishes including huevos rancheros with grilled flatbreads; and eggs benedict with Gochujang hollandaise and crispy pork belly. As a quirky addition to your weekend, The Hunter’s Moon will offer its signature Bloody Susan to share. This DIY Bloody Mary is served on a lazy Susan in the centre of the table, providing a choice of Clamato or tomato juice alongside a selection of garnishes to style it your way, from traditional choices including celery and horseradish, alongside changing special extras from crispy bacon to Mersea oysters.
A classic Sunday roast will feature a choice of prime cuts, from treacle cured sirloin of Stokes Marsh Farm beef, to butter roast cornfed chicken with bread sauce, each accompanied by perfectly crisp roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, spinach and gravy. Sides are made to share with delicious choices including smoked bacon and cabbage; roasted artichokes and endive with aged balsamic; and three cheese baked cauliflower with autumn truffle.
On the drinks menu guests will find an extensive wine list, offering a selection from a wide number of regions and with a vintage to suit every taste. Craft beers and ales will feature alongside international brands and top shelf spirits, with classic cocktails available on request.
A charming fusion of traditional and modern British style, The Hunter’s Moon features bespoke hand-made furniture and artisan textiles and materials, alongside unique reclaimed antiques and vintage finds. The bar has a dark, warm and sophisticated colour palette, offset by deep accents and complemented by textures, striking patterns and prints. Soft layered lighting and eclectic artwork adorning the walls further enhance the atmosphere, providing an inviting space for guests to relax. Dogs are welcome and well catered for too, with water bowls available on request and maybe even a treat or two.
A large skylight floods the restaurant space with natural daylight, whilst plentiful plants and foliage add an alfresco vibe, bringing the outside in. Alongside style, comfort is key with a choice of seating options including horseshoe shaped booths, fitted banquettes and dining chairs with hand-made cushions. The fireplace, AGA, vintage dresser and wine bottle storage feature further lend to the rustic lux design.
