The perfect location for Prince Harry’s next ‘Colonials and Natives’ party? This new bar and restaurant in Battersea goes all out with the imperial theme, sporting pith helmets as decorations, top-hatted staff and an atmospheric Victorian conservatory-style dining room. But the Modern British food is cooked with panache, and the drinks list is pretty special – there’s a vast, noteworthy beer list of real ales and craft brews, wines from both former colonies and dominions and France (listed as ‘Friends’ and ‘Foes’). Many of the inventive cocktails make use of intriguing-sounding own-made cordials, syrups and infused spirits.
