All public house, restaurants, bars etc closed for the forseeable future on 20th March 2020, but this is a history site. But how about the landlords give their tenants a break, no business, then please charge them no rent.
Chelsea Pub history index
It was first licensed in 1858 as the Riley Arms, and in 1877 had the address 411 Kings Road, and still by 1921; this was at the corner of Riley Street, hence the name. It was rebuilt in 1952 as part of a general regeneration of the area, not on exactly the same site I suspect, and from that time at least it has had the address 433 Kings Road. In 1986 the pub's name was abbreviated to Riley's. ***
