POWDERKEG, Battersea’s favourite neighbourhood bar is a short stroll from Clapham Junction station. They relaunched in autumn 2017 with a fresh look and new owners – the team behind southwest London’s award Winning Brickwood Cafés, WC Wine & Charcuterie and Joe Public Pizza. POWDERKEG specialises in delicious cocktails, British craft beers and an ever-changing wine list. In the kitchen, executive chef Ben Mulock, formerly of the Opera Tavern, oversees an evolving menu of modern, seasonal British food with a Spanish and Italian twist. It includes grazing dishes and sharing plates, plus plenty of chargrilled, dry-aged and smoked meat and fish. With a 2am licence on Fridays and Saturdays, it’s also a great local spot to book for drinks parties. Weekends we offer a very local brunch with all your modern favorites as well as a cracking Sunday Roast which you can enjoy with our regular Sunday sessions live music.

Service and staff were amazing, could not fault them at all. We had booked in for dinner, food was great, but atmosphere is more like a bar so not great if you want a quiet catch up, but saying that we still had a lovely evening.

Food was great loved the small unique menu and the amount of gin on offer. Unfortunately service was slow and the food was overpriced.

That being said we did have a great evening for friends catching up.

One great barman. One moody one.
Pretty dead but was a Monday.
Food came far to quick and tasted deep fried. Suggests it’s not all made to order.
Far from terrible and the (dark haired) waiter was sharp and welcoming plus food was ok.
6/10. Probs 7 on any other night but the Monday.
Would go again so couldn’t be that bad!

This was the second time I went to this restaurant, the first time was for an early dinner, I really liked but this time I didn't. The table they got us was way to small, we were 3 guys seated on a 2 people table, it was really noisy, not a good experience. I reckon that this restaurant is good if you go earlier or for brunch, do not do for later dinners, this if you don't like to scream, and be in a tinny table.

We've been to Powder Kg before and enjoyed a great night with restaurant meal. This is now tapas food and whilst food was ok means more expense and less satisfying in our view if you want a full meal not nibbles. Staff were lovely however and its a lovely setting - now more of a bar than a restaurant.

Food was tasty but there wasn't a lot of it. We went for brunch and ordered a couple of extra things to make up for the small main.
The brunch menu is also a small one so there aren't enough options to choose from.

I booked for myself and wife on our 10 year Wedding Anniversary and we requested seating in conservatory which was an awesome choice to enjoy the amazing food. The bar area was very lively and would be fantastic on a men's or women's group night. Staff couldn't do enough to please and we will definitely be back.

Wow! Who knew this gem was only 5 mins from Clapham Junction. Amazing design, great staff and food better then the standard local fair. Cocktails in the bar followed by dinner in the conservatory was just right. Noticed an intimate little private dinning room as well for next time.
