Self appointed “innovative new food emporium”, Bennett Oyster Bar & Brasserie, opened this week on Battersea Square. In addition to the bar and brasserie, there's a shop selling seafood, “traditional British fayre”, fine wine and Champagne, fresh flowers, organic fruit and veg and a variety of fresh baked goods.
There for the launch of this newbie venture, Londonist thought the dining space was equally elegant and convivial without pretension (think Paris brasserie charm with more than a healthy dash of proper London pub-iness). We very much enjoyed sampling Bennett's assortment of oysters, mini steak and kidney pies and an assortment of seafood dishes. Ruinart champers was a welcome quaff as well, and cocktails were nice enough (unconvinced by the not terribly Bloody Marys though). As for the store, it appeared lovely and well stocked to be sure, but we can't vouch on the quality and prices.
Happy to recommend to oyster lovers and their ilk, Bennett Oyster Bar & Brasserie is located at 4 - 9 Battersea Square, SW11 3RA. Expect to pay 12 to 15 quid for a meal. Find out more at www.bennettsbrasserie.com.
