If at some point you’re heading east to the Olympic Park and if you’re a fan of local Chelsea pubs such as The Kings Arms, The Builders Arms, The Chelsea Ram or nearby The Phoenix, then you may want to try The Calf, a pop-up pub at Westfield Stratford shopping centre.
The guys behind The Calf are Rupert and Jo Clevely who together run Geronimo Inns and who are also behind the Chelsea pubs mentioned above.
As you would expect from a Geronimo Inns pub, good food as well as a selection of wine and beers will be available – so if you’re looking for a home away from home, this could easily be a safe bet.
I’ve never been to Westfield Stratford before but I can imagine that if Westfield is anything to go by, then it is very large and you will need to know your way around. My first and only visit to Westfield made me realise that unless you have hours to wander, then it’s best to know where you’re heading. So, here’s a map to help you find The Calf!
The buzz around the Olympic Park next month is going to be immense, so if you are popping into The Calf for a drink, cheers!
