SquareMeal Review of Nine Elms Tavern

The brand new Nine Elms Tavern is set to become the local pub for the wealthy inhabitants of the area’s recently built skyscrapers. Its environs are a mixed blessing – a grim urban motorway out front balanced by a sprawling outdoor terrace directly overlooking the Thames. Here, lurid lime-green sofas and gaily painted tin-tub chairs will be in demand whenever the mercury soars. Sip chilled Picpoul de Pinet (£22.40 on a modest wine list), various spritzes or a pint of owners Young’s best brews. Indoors, the bar and dining room’s design-by-committee interior is ‘modern and exciting’ in the same way that the clone developments it serves are ‘characterful and inspiring’. Order small plates (mac & cheese, stout rarebit, buttermilk chicken bites with chilli jam), stone-baked sourdough pizzas (from £9), or pub grub such as shepherd’s pie and greens; burgers; bangers; and ale-battered cod with all the trimmings (£13.50).
