Bar of the month - The Old Bear

Located in Chelsea footballer heartland, a sliced clearance from the training ground, you might find a few of the players enjoying a quiet celebration drink here tonight after yesterday's first leg shutout in Barcelona.

The Old Bear has been transformed from a sticky-floored boozer into something of a sanctuary. Oak beams, wooden floors and open fires dominate the decor, but the real point of interest is a high-tech gadget behind the bar - The Enomatic Wine Serving System, which enables premium wines to be sold by the glass. Snack on pork crackling with apple and cider chutney while you drink, or alternatively head straight for the restaurant. Riverhill, Cobham, Surrey (01932 862 116)
