136 Battersea High Street
Battersea High Street receives a welcome new addition in the shape of a beautifully refurbished pub, The Candlemaker.
Formerly The Greyhound, the pub takes its inspiration from the candle factory that operated for over a hundred years in nearby York Road. An additional nod to the pub’s sixties heyday as a thriving market tavern is represented by the colourful pop-art and psychedelic imagery adorning the walls.
The radical refit also extends to the garden with “outdoor rooms” both front and rear, colourfully lit and containing cosy heated pods.
Landlord Simon Duddington is confident The Candlemaker will re-energise the southern end of Battersea High Street. “It’s just what the area needs,” he says. “A place to eat, drink and socialise that is original, independent and that understands its roots and is proud of them. We aim to help make this beautiful, cobbled part of Battersea High Street a destination now and in the future.”
