Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
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.
