About The Bolingbroke

The Bolingbroke pub and restaurant is steeped in the history of London. Situated on the corner of Battersea’s Honeywell and Northcote Roads, this traditional British gastropub takes its name from the brilliant politician and reckless rake, Henry St John, 1st Viscount Bolingbroke. The Bolingbroke offers the best of British cuisine, beer and wine, with a daring streak that makes for an exciting night out or a lazy weekend spent pontificating at the bar, in the dining room, or watching the world go by from a table outside.

More about The Bolingbroke, London

This Battersea corner pub offers a refined, traditional British restaurant dining and drinking experience. A family-friendly pub, there’s a great kids menu and plenty of toys and activities (cupcake decorating, anyone?) to keep the whippersnappers happy while their elders enjoy a glass or two of from The Bolingbroke’s remarkable wine list. Mum and dad can also enjoy great British cuisine either from the bar food selection, or from the a la carte menu in the separate and beautifully appointed dining room, which is also available for private hire. The food is British but atypical. This London gastropub’s menu uses ingredients sourced from The Bolingbroke’s very own country farmstead – free-range pork, chicken and beef. Superlative seafood is sourced direct from boats off England’s southern coast. All this means that the dishes coming out of The Bolingbroke’s Northcote Road kitchen are as fresh and seasonal as possible.

Winning accolades left, right and centre (Harden’s London Restaurants list is just one of many to ladle praise upon The Bolingbroke), Battersea has been put firmly on the map as one of London’s top destinations for those on the lookout for the best of the city’s gastropubs and British restaurants. Whether you choose to sit outside on the open-air terrace on a summer’s evening, right on Honeywell and Northcote roads, to prop yourself up by the bar, or back by the open fire in the dining room with up to 36 seated or 50 standing friends and family, The Bolingbroke offers a relaxed environment with excellent service, great food, and fine drink.

We had a lovely lunch at the Bolingbroke pub. The halloumi salad was delicious and very fresh. We shared the banofee pie and brownie for dessert both of which were yummy. They gave us plenty of space for our babies any high chairs. Overall a great experience.

Excellent food, great atmosphere. It’s lovely to have such a great, pet-friendly place just around the corner. Can get very noisy in the evening, but it all adds to the fun!

Favourite place to go for a gorgeous meal with great wine list, beautiful ambiance and very attentive helpful staff. We got 3 plates to start - the croquettes were mouth watering!! I had the pheasant for a main, highly recommend.
