Northcote Road & Battersea Rise Restaurants

Northcote Road/Battersea Rise SW11 Restaurants

There are plenty of good restaurants (and bars) if you fancy a trip across the common to Battersea Rise and Northcote Road. If you’re new to the area, the 37 bus goes from Clapham Common tube station to Battersea Rise.

FRENCH

FIXED restaurant
74 Northcote Road, Battersea SW11 6QL, T:020 3026 5996.
The menu at this friendly, relaxed French restaurant on Northcote Road features each course at ‘FIXED’ and reasonable prices. The lunch menu is great value and there is a children’s menu plus ‘Family Sundays’, where kids eat free. Brunch is served at weekends. A welcome addition to this bustling area of Battersea

Cote
35-37 Battersea Rise, London, SW11 1HG, T: 020 7223 4277
Ok, so it’s a chain but we have never had a bad meal at Cote and the staff are always efficient and friendly. Reasonably priced too.

Sinabro
28 Battersea Rise, SW11 1EE, 020 3302 3120
French food with a twist and beautifully presented. Recommended by Totally Clapham followers.

Soif
27 Battersea Rise, London SW11 1HG, 020 7223 1112
Expect the unexpected here. An eclectic menu which changes daily, fabulous cooking, excellent reviews.

INDIAN
Akash
70 Northcote road Battersea, SW11 6QL, T: 020 7228 6434
The Akash has been here long before Northcote Road became fashionable and so it deserves support for that reason alone! The curries tend to be the richer type although prices are reasonable for the area.

Indian Moment
47, Northcote Road, London SW11 1NJ T: 20 7223 6575
Excellent, stylish Indian restaurant which uses natural, fresh ingredients. One of our favourites. It isn’t the cheapest Indian restaurant  around but we’ve never had a bad meal here. Busy at weekends. Take-away available.

INDOCHINESE/KOREAN

Banana Tree (IndoChinese)
75-79, Battersea Rise, London, SW11 1HN, T: 020 7228 2828
They do a good value lunch here and it’s usually buzzing in the evenings. Long tables and benches make for sociable dining!

Hana Korean (Korean)
60 Battersea Rise, London SW11 1EG, T: 020 7228 2496
Family-run, cosy restaurant serving tradition Korean food. Good atmosphere, good food but not cheap.

INTERNATIONAL

Breakfast Club
5-9 Battersea Rise, SW11 5HG
You can have breakfast at more or less any time at the Breakfast Club. It’s a popular place, particularly at weekends when there’s often a queue outside. It’s a busy, lively place and a welcome addition to the buzz of Battersea Rise.

Bill’s
54 Northcote Road, SW11 1PA T: 020 7585 0654
A new addition to the bustle of restaurants on Northcote Road, Bill’s is already proving to be very popular. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the focus is on fresh, quality ingredients and includes everything from burgers and steaks to salads and comfort food such as fish and chips and fish pie. Service is efficient and friendly; special diets such as gluten free are catered for too. Our only negative is the venue itself – a somewhat dark, long room, although the design team has made the best of it and there are a few tables outside at the front for warmer days.

Gourmet Burger Kitchen (American)
44 Northcote Road, London SW11, T: 020 7228 3309
Award winning burger chain. Good quality burgers.

Nando’s (Portuguese)
1a Northcote Road, London SW11 1NG
Fresh chicken and peri-peri sauce make this a fun chain restaurant to take the whole family

ITALIAN
Buona Sera (Italian)
22 Northcote Road, London SW11 1NX, T: 020 7228 9925
A decent ‘casual’, buzzy Italian restaurant in Battersea – not too fancy, great service and classic Italian food. Their pizzas are huge and delicious! Very busy at weekends.

Numero Uno (Italian)
139 Northcote Road, London SW11 6PX, T: 020 7978 5837
Bustling, popular restaurant with a very long menu! Traditional Italian dishes, outdoor seating on warmer days.

Osteria Antica Bologna
23 Northcote Road, London SW11 1NG, T: 020 7978 4771
One of the stalwarts of Northcote Road – Osteria Antica has been here for over 20 years. It has a rustic vibe and the focus is on seasonal cooking – organic where possible – and the opportunity to experience many Italian dishes not usually found in your average Italian restaurant in London. It’s one of those little gems that doesn’t show off but continues to offer good food and service year after year.

Pizza

Buona Sera (Italian) – see above

Franco Manca
76 Northcote Road, London SW11 6QL, T: 020 7924 3110
Who would have thought there would be room for another pizza place around here but when it comes to Franco Manca there’s always room. Sourdough pizzas – nothing else – and they are superb! Great value too. Expect to queue at weekends.

Pizza Metro (Pizza)
64 Battersea Rise, SW11 1EQ, T: 020 7228 3812
Pizza Metro boasts the longest pizzas in London and boy are they good! Not surprisingly, it gets incredibly busy so make sure you book. Delivery service too.

MODERN BRITISH/EUROPEAN

Scoffers Kitchen
6 Battersea Rise, London SW11 1ED, T: 020 7978 5542
Scoffers has been around for years and a popular haunt for locals looking for a casual, reasonably priced meal.

SPANISH

Rosita & the Sherry Bar
124 Northcote Road, London SW11 6QU, T: 020 7998 9093
We like this buzzy Spanish restaurant which features an interesting tapas menu and is even more popular since their sister restaurant on Northcote Road closed. It has a few outside tables at the front of the restaurant.

THAI & VIETNAMESE

Pho (Vietnamese)
50-52 Battersea Rise, SW11 1EG T: 020 3058 1756
Part of a small family-run chain, this relatively new addition to Battersea Rise makes Vietnamese food more mainstream. The focus is very much on sharing and we’ve heard good reports. Interesting decor too, if a little dark (let’s call it atmospheric!).

The Thai Garden (Thai)
58, Battersea Rise, London, SW11 1EG, T: 020 7738 0380
A long-standing restaurant, not quite as high standards as the early days – in our opinion – but still reasonable.
