29 Ransomes Dock, 35-37 Parkgate Rd., Battersea
Located on a dock right near Battersea park, Nutbourne is a new venture by brothers Oliver and Richard Gladwin, who named the joint after their family farm and vineyard in Sussex. In fact, they're taking many cues from the vineyard, from the décor, to the farm-grown meat and vegetables, to the wine list. With bright, rustic interior and an impressively sustainable concept, they've brought a slice of the countryside to Battersea, in the form of an all-day restaurant that's open for everything from a quick bite, to a healthy lunch, to a more indulgent dinner from the grill.
Pear Tree Cafe
Battersea Park, Battersea
Few things are more idyllic than a London park café and when the food comes from two ex-Petersham Nurseries and Spring vets, you know you're in for a treat. At the newly revamped Battersea Park cafe, Will Burrett and Annabel Partridge have poured their hearts into the menu which spans the entire day and bursts with seasonality, something they undoubtedly learned working under Skye Gyngell. Plus, the café hosts private dinners-what sounds better than a private party overlooking the boating lake in Battersea Park?
