"VERY GOOD"

Lurking in deepest leafy Chiswick, the original Little Bird will have flown under many a discerning drinker’s radar, more’s the pity. Landing on SW11’s prime bar strip, owner Lorraine Angliss should win the brand more admirers with her follow-up lounge. As before, Robinson Crusoe beachcomber-chic that could easily veer towards tiki-tacky in less confident hands sets the World of Interiors-worthy tropical private island scene for stylish cocktails. Limber up with All That Jazz, a Bellini that calls for vodka, Aperol and orange bitters. Dip into well-judged classics - Aviation, Boulevardier (basically, a bourbon Negroni) and Clover Club. Surrender to sweet signatures  - Strawberry and Rose Gin Fizz or Caledonian cobbler, Wisp in the Heathers (whisky, Grand Marnier, cinnamon, heather honey and orange juice). Largely affordable wines are what to order with Thai fish cakes; tuna sashimi ponzu and lime; pork dim sum; prawn green curry with sweet potatoes and grilled naan bread, or seared beef salad with cucumber and peanuts - mainstays of a menu that looks to Asia for inspiration and also offers chickpea and vegetable korma with toasted coconut among four dishes for those on meat and fish-free diets. Follow with pineapple carpaccio, coconut sorbet and harissa syrup or passionfruit cheesecake at this pretty new perch aimed more at urban peacocks and exotic birds than your average hen.

Little Bird are onto a winner with their latest branch on Battersea Rise. Too many of the bars and pubs in this area are happy to forgo service and quality in favour of packing in as many thirsty after work drinkers and weekend revellers as they can. Often in sticky floored bars with dubious playlists. At Little Bird, they’ve struck the perfect balance between chilled out cocktail bar and indulgent dining with a menu made up of tempting small plates and nibbles. You’ll soon see why it’s easy for long lunches to slip into early evening drinks. The service is attentive yet unpretentious - the best kind, and yet another rare find in this neck of the woods. I just hope the pretty secret garden stays that way...
