Duchess Belle101 Battersea Park Road
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Now part of a small pub chain that also includes the Griffin Belle in nearby Vauxhall, this Victorian street-corner local was refurbished again in 2018 after a chequered history. There is piped music, plastic foliage and flowers abounding, and an array of TV screens showing sport. The views of Sir Giles Gilbert Scott's iconic Battersea Power Station are set to be unrivalled once redevelopment work there is complete, and the pub stands to benefit from its proximity to the the luxury flats being built on the site. There is an upstairs function room, and an attractive walled, decked garden. Beers are generally from the Heineken and Marston's stables.
