Hello guys, 

I'm looking for a place to play chess in London near notting hill if anyone knows a place, a pub, to meet some chess players.

Thanks,

Lucas

The Hammersmith chess club is near Notting Hill. http://hammerchess.co.uk/

I've never been, so I've no idea what it's like, but I happened to be looking at it last night as I was thinking of trying to join.

I'm a Londoner.

I go to the Chess Cafe in the BFI restaurant near Tottenham Court Road, but that's really for women although men are welcome.

The really big place is a pub in Battersea, south-west London. Maybe googling chess and Battersea will find it.

There really isn't anywhere in central London so far as I know.

In London they were in pubs until the owners realised the players took up a lot of space but didn't drink very much.

Hammersmith Chess Club is definitely the best bet in West London - really sociable club, loads of events going on:
