2. Battersea Brewery

Arches Lane, Circus West Village

Battersea Brewery is a micro-brewery that serves a variety of local and international craft beers. The beer is pumped directly from their brewery, so it can’t get any fresher! They also offer wine, and delicious homemade toasted sandwiches.

Battersea Brewery is located under the arches in Circus West Village, which is a short walk from the river path, and a stone’s throw from the Power Station. There is a beer garden at the front, which is the perfect spot for drinks in the summer.
