Duchess Belle101 Battersea Park Road
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Part of a small pub chain that also includes the Griffin Belle in nearby Vauxhall, this lively, Victorian street-corner local was refurbished in 2018 after a chequered history. There is plastic foliage and flowers abounding, red leather bench seating, and an array of TV screens showing sport. The view of Sir Giles Gilbert Scott's iconic Battersea Power Station is now partly obscured by the high-end flats built around the site. There is an upstairs function room with balcony, an outside drinking area at the front, and an attractive walled, decked garden to the rear. Open for breakfast from 7.30 am on weekdays (8.30 Saturday).
