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.
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 an excellent lunch with delicious burgers, wine and puddings and a great children’s menu and very friendly staff. We’ll definitely be going back!
Great gastropub food in a lovely setting. We sat in the dining room and everything including the service and the choice of food was excellent. We will definitely return.
