Our new venue is

The Carpenters Arms 12 Seymour Place W1H 2DD

This new venue is for Middlesex League home matches only  – people are welcome to come along and spectate but downstairs the pub is generally quite busy so there is no real scope for social chess


The main benefit of joining the club is participation in league and tournament games.

Home matches are played from 6.45pm or 7.00pm on Mondays and Wednesdays upstairs at The Exmouth Arms pub, 1 Starcross Street, London NW1 2HR (tel. 0171 387 5440) - off Cobourg Street, a few minutes walk from Euston, Euston Square and Warren Street tube stations.

We have several teams in different league divisions, and usually book Monday and Wednesday evenings in the league season, which runs from September to May.  Spectators are welcome.This season we have teams in divisions 1,2,4, and 5 of the London League and divisions 1, 2, and 3 (promoted from 4 last season) of the Middlesex League. We have entered a second team in the single division Hammersmith League to provide more games for our weaker members. We shall be entering one team in the Major (U175), Intermediate (U150) and Minor (U125) sections of the BCF National Club knock-out competition. In addition to this, we have a team in the second division of the 4 Nations Chess League and we play international friendly matches 4 or 5 times as year.

The games are in the upstairs room of the pub, which provides sufficient peace and quiet.Subscriptions are 45 (pounds sterling) this year, which will get you regular match play, a club card to use at the Wargrave Arms and the social side of the club too. We're one of the friendliest clubs in London: however if you don't like the "pub atmosphere," another club might be better (there are at least 30 clubs in London).

Join us: Annual subscriptions run from September. £35, discounted if you join after December.
