SquareMeal Review of
Pear Tree Café
Annabel Partridge (formerly of Petersham Nurseries) and Will Burrett (ex-Spring) have teamed up on this café in the heart of Battersea Park, right next to the boating lake. Offering up seasonal and carefully sourced dishes, the café serves breakfast and all-day lunch, as well as brunch on the weekends. Breakfast options include smashed avocado with wood sorrel, pickled cucumbers, feta, chilli, spring onion and za’atar herbs. At lunchtime, five daily changing specials (meat, fish, vegetarian, salad and soup) might include grilled onglet steak with borlotti beans, chard and salsa verde, or chickpea pancake with grilled aubergine, mint and labneh. Family-orientated Pear Tree welcomes dogs, but don’t worry about finding a seat – the restaurant has 100 covers, while there’s space for another 350 outside.
