Gastro

This Battersea local is a pub for all seasons, an everyman pub, a pub which scans all socio-economic groups. It could well compete for the Pub Of The Year award. Sit at scrubbed pine tables next to an open fire and order anything from pheasant to fish and chips. The most costly main is £18.50 and the wines are from £16 to £49. A low-key, once gentrified, decor is comfortable nod unpretentious...this is most certainly not a gastro pub. Whether you arrive in suits or overalls, no-one looks out of place.
