Harden's survey result
If this Battersea venue were not owned by Gordon Ramsay, we would probably not trouble to write an entry. Not that this ‘neighbourhood bar, garden, and restaurant’ is too bad to burn: it just inspires little feedback, all of it humdrum: e.g. “good everyday food, chips are special, lounge is very relaxing for a drink”.
Gordon Ramsay’s Battersea venture pitches itself as a family-friendly (‘kids eat free’) neighbourhood local, and attracts large groups for celebratory meals. It scored some hits this year (“we had 15 folks faultlessly looked after”) but those reporting misses were more vocal: “totally overpriced…”, “all the atmosphere of a rail station waiting room…”, “…if this is the best Gordon Ramsay can do with his spin-offs, not sure how he is keeping in business!”
Gordon Ramsay’s Battersea venue wins some praise for “decent food and cocktails”, but its ratings have suffered as a result of an apparent identity crisis: “It doesn’t know if it’s a restaurant or a pub, which made it feel like it was neither…”; “Bring back the white tablecloths! It’s much less special than when it first opened. What went wrong?”
Gordon Ramsay’s “relaxed and friendly” two-year-old in Battersea pleases diners with its “great simple food”, and a move to “less formal dining” has been well received. “The menu looks quite limited but the food was really enjoyable”.
