Dining tables at The Oak SW11 restaurant and bar in Battersea

About The Oak SW11

With a total capacity of up to 120 seated, the casual dining and drinking space is made up of a ground floor dining room and counter bar that will accommodate walk ins, along with a more relaxed lounge area perfect for breakfast and long brunches. The space also offers itself as a comfortable work hub for freelancers and creatives, with all-day dining options available for those hoping to grab a light bite.

Design is overseen by founder Jasper Gorst, who has hand-selected every fixture and fitting, showcasing local designers whilst paying homage to The Oak’s heritage with hints to design features from sister restaurants. Individually laid dark and light oak herringbone table tops are set amongst deep emerald green banquette seating; white stools sit at the long white marble bar with characterful 3-D tiles, beneath bronzed pendant lighting. Sleek white oak flooring leads the way to the mezzanine level overlooking the entire restaurant, which will open to the dock in the summer.

Centre piece marble table

Perfect for group bookings and family lunches, the central piece is a statement marble table, accommodating bookings up to 14, and is set to the backdrop of a mosaic of mirrors, underneath a living wall of seasonal herbs and greenery growing all year round. Towards the rear is a mezzanine level dining room, where reservations will be available, along with large party bookings.
