The Bolingbroke Pub & Dining Room is named in honour of Henry St. John, 1st Viscount Bolingbroke, the brilliant politician and reckless rake, who spent the early and final years of his life in Battersea. Whilst Henry was renowned for his hard drinking, innumerable affairs and wild escapades, this Northcote Road public house is a rather more refined local. The kitchen works with some of the best small producers the British Isles has to offer. The chicken and pork is free-range, the fish is sustainably sourced from English day boats on the South coast and the beef is aged in-house. This is complemented by a good range of cask ales and lagers and a comprehensive wine list that offers great wines at very reasonable prices. From the welcoming bar through to the relaxed dining room, elegance reigns supreme and the emphasis is on high quality British food and traditional pub values.
