Nutbourne | The Gladwin Brothers’ Battersea Eatery

There are three things we love in this world.

1) Food

2) Drink

3) Things that come in threes.

Luckily, Nutbourne, a rustic idyll by the Battersea docks, has all of the above in spades.

That’s because it’s the third venture from the Gladwin brothers (of which there are also, coincidentally, three), following on from The Shed in Notting Hill and Chelsea’s Rabbit, and it features a menu of the kind of inventive, seasonal British dishes we’ve come to expect from the trio.

The restaurant is an homage to the eponymous farm and vineyard where the boys spent their childhood years, with profusions of greenery and embroidered vegetables overhanging farmhouse tables. The dishes themselves are prepared using produce from the farm itself, and even the wine menu features a considerable spread of Nutbourne’s own offerings.


Early in the day, you’ll find luxuriant takes on brunch classics, including guinea fowl eggs, bacon in brioche buns, and sweet corn fritters with chorizo; but the menu really takes off with lunch and dinner, where you’ll find starters like tempura battered whelks and langoustines with sea purslane. Or, of course, there’s always the grouse, which arrives on a hot salt rock and is cooked at your table before your very eyes.

And to wash all this down, you’ll be choosing between fresh geranium smoothies and the – arguably, equally healthy-sounding – cocktails, like the mulberry-steeped vodka and lemonade, served in a glass wellington boot.

Which, mysteriously, taste even better when you’ve had three.


NOTE: Nutbourne is now open Tuesday – Saturday 8am-11pm and Sunday 8am-3pm. Bookings can be made by calling 0207 351 0555, or emailing [email protected]
