The team behind the Shed and Rabbit restaurants in London has announced plans to open Nutbourne, an all-day brasserie and grill, in Ransome's Dock, Battersea this year.
Launched by brothers Richard, Oliver and Gregory Gladwin, the 130-cover restaurant will serve breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner using British ingredients. Theo Harris, who has been part of the Shed and Rabbit team for many years, will take on the role of general manager.
Nutbourne takes its name from the Gladwins' family farm in West Sussex. Nutbourne will be supplied with produce from the farm, alongside seasonal produce from local suppliers and ingredients foraged in the wild.
Chef Oliver has created a classic menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner including: a full English of sausages, sweet cured bacon and black pudding, made from Nutbourne livestock and served with homemade sourdough brioche for breakfast, a ‘salads, grains and pulses' section available for lunch offering healthy dishes such as the omega salad made with mackerel, dulse, roasted squash, sage, red onion jam, sprouting seeds and taramasalata dressing.
Main courses will be cooked on the restaurant's open grill. The dishes, which will regularly change, include: monkfish cheeks with fig and rosemary, coriander seeds and chutney and veal sweet bread with mustard jus and pork chop with fennel and marjoram salsa.
Classic desserts will be on offer such as royal trifle cheesecake, chocolate mousse with hazelnut sherbert, and the Gladwins' own magnum vienetta parfait.
More than 150 wines will be on offer, alongside seasonal cocktails make from British-produced spirits.
The interior of the restaurant will be based on the Lost Gardens of Heligan, an estate in Cornwall discovered 25 years ago.
Richard and Oliver said: "With Nutbourne we wanted to create a community restaurant for Battersea locals. We both live in and love this area and we hope that we've created a space that caters to all the tastes of people from here and the surrounding areas. We look forward to welcoming guests to our secret garden soon!"
