The Most Romantic Restaurants On & Around Sloane Street

Hot tip, gentlemen: always make a reservation at somewhere truly romantic for Valentine’s Day. Always. Just in case.

The thing is, you don’t want to get caught out not having one. Whether you’ve been together for two decades or two weeks, the gesture alone will earn you major gold stars. Your special someone may not give two hoots about Valentine’s Day but if she does hint at a desire to mark the day, you look like a hero if you’re prepared.

At any time of year, Chelsea is one of London’s romantic neighbourhoods, and Sloane Street offers a selection of bars and restaurants with equally intimate vibes.

To help you out with your amorous intentions, we’ve selected the most romantic restaurants and bars on and around Sloane Street for Valentine’s Day. If Cupid was your concierge, this is where he’d make your reservations…
