Pub name Name Address Description
Asparagus 1-13 Falcon Road Battersea SW11 2PL Opened in July 1998 in shop units under offices. Turquoise exterior paintwork and various shades of green and blue inside with stained glass. Typical open-plan, split level layout. Named after local 19th century asparagus crop which was sold in ‘Battersea Bundles’. Alcohol sales start at 9am.
Battersea Brewery Tap Room 12-14 Arches Lane Battersea SW11 8AB Opened in November 2018 as the tap to the adjacent Battersea Brewery, both housed in railway arches alongside the Power Station development. Exposed brickwork, bare floors and comfortable seating attract a vibrant, young crowd. Although the brewery mainly produces keg beers, two cask-conditioned ales are available, one always a Battersea beer, usually Admiral Best Bitter, a dark amber classic English bitter at 4.2%, and often including a guest beer from Oakham, Siren, Burning Sky or London Fields. Bar snacks include chicken wings and toasted sandwiches. TV sport (terrestrial) for major events. Within easy reach of the Battersea Power Station Northern Line Underground station.
Beehive 197 St Johns Hill Battersea SW11 1TH The Beehive has recently received a new lease on life with a spruce up from new landlords Lee and Keris De Villiers, who are Licensee of the year finalists and also BII ambassadors. The pub has maintained it traditional ‘proper pub’ status while its new look makes it feel fresh and inviting. The pub is at the heart of the community with a great local following and sponsoring numerous sports teams in a bid to support grassroot sports. The updated televisions play all the sport you can think of and with a great little beer Garden and sun trap in the front -what more could you want. Their beers and drink section is top notch with some great offers on Wine and Prosecco daily. Dogs are made to feel more that welcome with complimentary homemade dog biscuits and their very own menu. Ale is kept in great condition and remains a staple of a great British pub such as this.
Bolingbroke 174 Northcote Rd. Battersea SW11 6RE A family-friendly corner ‘Pub & Dining Room’ opened in August 2008 in previous ‘Niksons Bar & Restaurant’ premises. No TV. Covered smoking area on pavement patio. Side bar available for functions. Revives name of pub in Cobham Close demolished for housing earlier in 2008.
Candlemaker 136 Battersea High Street Battersea SW11 3JR After eight months’ closure, this pub was reopened on 1 November 2012 by new owners InnBrighton, now the Laine Pub Company. A complete internal makeover incorporates the old kitchen as trade space and a lot of work has gone into the garden, with smoking shelters back and front. The new upstairs kitchen was once a meeting/function room and the top floor is the manager’s domestic accommodation. Cask beer was discontinued in 2021 owing to lack of demand but returned in March 2023. The pub was suddenly taken over in September from Laine’s by Smok’d, who run the Britannia, SE1 and the Greyhound in Kingston. Like them, a ‘modern British barbecue restaurant’ it was initially described to a CAMRA visitor as free of tie, with a commitment to cask beer and the promise of local favourites, but now finds its ambitions frustrated by contractual supply restrictions severely limiting its choice of cask ales.
Crown 102 Lavender Hill Battersea SW11 5RD At least one changing London microbrewery beer is now again available in this Enterprise pub leased to Pub Love, formerly known as Best Place Inns and with a hostel upstairs. A landmark, listed Victorian pub with high ceiling, island bar and front terrace. Popular for football, especially with Chelsea supporters. Juke box and occasional music events. Real ciders from handpump and boxes, burger kitchen and decent choice of bottled ‘craft’ beers.
Duke of Battersea 74-76 Battersea Bridge Road Battersea SW11 3AG This ‘public house & dining rooms’ successfully avoids the identikit feel of many gastropubs, with red, green and cream décor complemented by modern art posters. Friendly, approachable and enthusiastic staff and a youthful clientele make for a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. Cask ale is served in ‘jugs’ and an exciting range of keg and bottled beers and ciders is a bonus. You can usually get a taste of something before you buy, and draught beer is also available in ‘thirds’, to help sampling. TV sports are silent but the staff are happy to put the volume on if most people want it (especially for the rugby). Formerly Draft House Westbridge, Matilda, Blue Mango, Pig on the Bridge, a restaurant and previously Bridge, originally Prodigals Return. Renamed by BrewDog in April 2021. Occasionally the one cask beer now available may be an alternative to the usual Sambrook’s choice; an Adnams/Deya collaboration, Boat Trip, was on offer in August 2023.
Duke of Cambridge 228 Battersea Bridge Road Battersea SW11 3AA Now an upmarket gastropub serving a predominantly well heeled clientele. A mix of high stools and lived-in sofas surrounds the original island bar with heritage-green painted bar-back.
Eagle Ale House 104 Chatham Road Battersea SW11 6HG Winner of many CAMRA awards, this charming, cosy local is just off the busy Northcote Road. With leather sofas, old bottles and books the Eagle is a bastion for micro-brewery cask and key-keg beers from near and far. One handpump is kept for ciders and bottle coolers now feature continental classics including several Lambics. The garden benefits from a large heated shelter. Several TV screens come to life for major sporting events (mainly rugby). Occasional live music.

Since then, the real ale choice has diminished but up to six will usually be available A busy M&B Nicholson’s pub, now with a stronger emphasis on food but with many and diverse real ales available. The Victorian splendours of this local, Grade II-listed landmark feature in CAMRA’s National Inventory of pub interiors of outstanding historic interest. The island bar counter is one of the longest in the country.
Four Thieves 51 Lavender Gardens Battersea SW11 1DJ Cavernous, back-street brewpub reopened in 2014 by the Laine Pub Company after major refurbishment and installation of a brewery. The pub is made up of a main bar, split over two levels, the Boat House, which hosts much of the entertainment, and a ‘gin yard’ (complete with a lavender roof). Above is a games room. Previously Battersea Mess & Music Hall under Antic, before that Walkabout, Rise, Bar Risa, Cornet and originally Cornet of Horse. Also formerly Jongleurs comedy venue. The pub ceased brewing late in 2019 and the brewing equipment has now been removed.

Fox & Hounds 66-68 Latchmere Road Battersea SW11 2JU This smart, street-corner pub sits well among the Victorian streets down from Lavender Hill.

Junction 36 St Johns Hill Battersea SW11 1SA A 1920’s replacement of an earlier building with mock tudor timber and plaster exterior is a lively pub just up the hill from Clapham Junction, reopened in November 2013 after refurbishment, with the name changed from the Windsor Castle. Sadly the previously separate bars have been knocked into one leaving a long bar, nevertheless it is a smarter pub with greater emphasis on food and a wider beer range. As the pub is adjacent to Clapham Junction the large garden bar is known as Platform 18.
Latchmere 503 Battersea Park Road Battersea SW11 3BW Reopened in May 2014 after lease taken over by Renaissance Pubs (now Three Cheers Pub Co) in March 2014 and extensively refurbished.
