Another five independent restaurants are coming to Battersea Power Station this summer when the development’s first phase – Circus Village West – opens its doors to the public.

The new additions include Mother, an Italian pizza restaurant from Copenhagen; Wright Brothers, a seafood restaurant; Dodd’s Gin, an award winning organic gin bar; Ben’s Canteen, and Duckroad which specialising in seasonal, simple cooking. The new independent traders will complement the names already announced that cover everything from a baker, general store and hair and beauty salon. (See full list below)

The long derelict site is now on course to become a new destination for London’s foodies. Once it opens this summer Circus West Village will be accessed via the Thames riverside, through a newly opened route under Grosvenor Railway Bridge called Grosvenor Arch.

Rob Tincknell, CEO of Battersea Power Station Development Company, said, “Creating a new cultural and food quarter for London as part of the £9 billion redevelopment of Battersea is an exciting challenge. We are striving to deliver the best mix of independent, authentic and fun British and international operators - an extension of the existing local community, a place for people to visit, be entertained, try something new, work and live. I am delighted to welcome all of these businesses to Battersea Power Station and I cannot wait to try out the first restaurants and cafes here this summer.”

Ravi Govindia, leader of Wandsworth Council and co-chair of the Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership, said, “It’s exciting to see more new restaurants coming to Battersea and the Battersea Power Station team have done a tremendous job of attracting independent traders you won’t find on the high street. These new arrivals, when they open this summer, will bring a whole new dimension to the local area and another new wave of jobs.

“The Nine Elms riverside is now being transformed from an industrial no-go area to a new centre for food, arts, culture and business. It will be a unique and valuable addition to London’s South Bank and is already one the greatest sources of new jobs and homes in the entire country.”

In addition to the new restaurants, the area is set to be brought alive by the introduction of cafes, pop-up shops and affordable work spaces.

A new riverbus passenger pier will open at Battersea Power Station from autumn 2017, supplementing the existing bus and rail links.
