SquareMeal Review of The Magic Garden

Essentially a divan-strewn, candlelit, Ibiza chill-out room, Battersea’s Magic Garden is the place to drink vanilla vodka-laced ‘magic nightjar’ cocktails or gin, jasmine and lychee ‘tea clippers’ served in old teapots to share. Wines from £16 (for house Malbec) turn Glastonbury glampers into happy campers, as does a 2am licence at weekends – especially when the diverse music policy embraces everything from live jazz, blues, bluegrass and rockabilly to Balkan electro swing. The kitchen deals in affordable comfort food along the lines of hot-smoked salmon with boiled egg and new potatoes, confit duck, cottage pie, line-caught hake and chips, wild mushroom risotto and sticky toffee pud – but also check out the cracking weekday lunch offers (£7/10 for one/two courses). Barbecues and buffets (minimum 20 people) make this a popular party venue too.
