Northcote Road in Battersea – a culinary paradise

As any South West London resident will know, the area is home to a real wealth and range of inimitable eating experiences.

The streets of Clapham, Battersea and Wandsworth are lined with restaurants, delicatessens, cafes and farmers markets, and the energy and sense of community that surrounds streets bustling with such establishments brings plenty of inspiration.


Max Green, our Associate Director and Sales Manager at our Battersea office, knows the Northcote Road area well and heartily recommends it as the perfect weekend destination for those with a fondness for gastronomy.

“Northcote Road is a food lover’s dream.  There is no shortage of places to pick up your weekly stocks. We have two terrific butchers, a quality fishmonger and a very handy cheese shop. To name just a few local food hotspots:


The Breadstall – Always good for an early morning coffee and croissant. And when lunch time comes, there is a huge choice of sandwiches, pizzas, soups and or stews to choose from.


La Cuisinière – A strange choice for someone who isn’t blessed with remarkable culinary skill, but wandering through the incredibly well stocked shelves looking for an exciting gadget is something I can often be found doing.


The Northcote Road Market – This brilliant market sells everything from fruit to wedding photography. It’s well worth a visit if you are at a loss for what to do on a Saturday morning!”
