The invitation is to 'take a trip down memory lane' at this Battersea bar and restaurant. The name gives a clue as to how. Thankfully, though, the school theme here isn't laid on thick - a blackboard, bookshelf wallpaper, a couple of signs ('lab coats must be worn at all times') and toys from yesteryear is about as far as it goes.
We're not quite sure which school the kitchen attended but the food here is certainly more appetising than most secondary comps. Examples include meat platters, pulled pork in a brioche bun, steak frites, steamed fillet of cod with mixed peppers, lime zest and quinoa, and a braised rib of beef. The dessert list sounds a bit more like it - think apple crumble, sponge and custard, and sticky toffee pudding.
The drinks list features some good beers on draught, including Hacker Pschorr Gold, Brugse Zot, WB Mariana Trench and Schoolhouse's own pilsner. Cans from Beavertown are in the chiller. A short wine list takes in countries from across the globe, with an impressive number - all but four, in fact - available by the glass.
We serve brunch, lunch and dinner daily. The Schoolhouse has a laid-back vibe and free wi-fi making it the perfect space for everything from working throughout the day to catching up with friends for dinner and cocktails. Delicious meals are served up on canteen trays and you can treat yourself to science-inspired cocktails in a beaker glass. Receive an education on craft beer with our impressive range totalling more than 90, or sit back and savour our Mission coffee.
Don’t be naughty or the headmaster may have you writing out lines on the blackboard. Open seven days a week.

Came here for a friends 'boozy brunch' birthday outing. It was really fun, and if you drink quick you can get quite a lot into your 2 hour time slot. At £30 a head you really need to make the most of the drinks. Food alone would only really be about £10 so you need to have a few drinks to make it worthwhile. The food itself wasn't amazing. Had the pancakes which were a bit chewy and not overly flavorsome, but definitely enjoyable for a novelty afternoon.
Visited here last Saturday night. Great music, buzzing atmosphere and the food was great. I had the 'chicken stack' and truffle and parmesan fries - honestly one of the best burger and fries combo that I have had since I arrived in London! Would definitely go back.
