Resting on the banks of the River Thames, The Nine Elms Tavern is a sleek, modern pub that marries delicious drinks and dishes with stunning views of the city. With a distinctive, rustic character running throughout, the venue has quickly become a favourite spot for South London's working crowds.

The venue itself is beautifully decorated. The plain wooden and industrial-esque walls clashes perfectly with the detailed, colourful furniture and presents a vibrant venue to its visitors that seems consumed in an endless tussle between the bank-sides industrial heritage and London's modern face. Be sure to check out the dazzling waterside terrace, boasting amazing views down the Thames.

As with every modern pub, an exquisite menu of delicious dishes and well-crafted drinks is a must. From traditional pub grub, including condiment-filled burgers, succulent steaks and ale-battered fish and chips, to flavoursome craft beers and ales, guests can expect to leave this Battersea-based pub thoroughly well fed.

Great tavern, lovely design. Food was great too. Coffee could be better. Staff helped with a dietary requirement which is nice but the main person who served us, (brunette, bearded) who I think is perhaps the manager, was unfriendly and my friend and I found him rude. My friend and I have worked in hospitality before so we understand the stresses of the job but despite this we did not appreciate the way we were spoken to. Visited The Nine Elms Tavern on 2017-10-03

We were part of a large group for a work outing and it was perfect. Beautiful sunny evening, great beers and pizzas and it was lovely to be on the water. Would definitely recommend :) Visited The Nine Elms Tavern on 2017-07-05

Food average, drinks pricey, good river terrace, fast service Visited The Nine Elms Tavern on 2017-06-22

We are regulars as my partner lives in the same building. Service is normally good and we love the place but when eating Sunday lunch it took over an hour for Sunday roasts to arrive after ordering. Good however food was good and staff were lovely and suitably apologetic. But the wait was much longer than we'd normally expect bearing in mind the restaurant was pretty empty. We will however be back and hope this was just a one off. Visited The Nine Elms Tavern on 2017-06-18

Guinness was good and so was the food. Family lunch so nice to have Sunday roast beef cooked for 3 different orders medium, medium rare and rare. Not many guests when we came so if they can do that when full it will be a regular for us. Visited The Nine Elms Tavern on 2017-03-05

Whilst I don’t normally leave reviews, I wanted to make an exception here as a warning for future guests after we dined as a group of 7 on New Year’s Eve. Our entire experience with Nine Elms Tavern - from the initial telephone reservation, through to paying the bill - was made unnecessarily stressful and unpleasant by the rude, and frankly incompetent, staff that were on shift on NYE. The warning bells were already sounding after the Manager had (twice) got the time of our reservation wrong during the booking process. Upon arrival, we waited over 15 mins to order a first round of drinks; a consistent delay that didn’t improve throughout the rest of the night. When the drinks (lagers for the boys) did make it over to us, they were all flat, and we promptly pointed this out to the waiter. After some persuasion, he agreed to replace them, and when he returned we were surprised to see he had only filled them to the level where they had been drunk from previously (1 sip from each pint). Whilst not a major issue, he seemed to be making an unnecessary point to us and it left a 'bad taste in the mouth'. With regards to food, the nachos starter was passable and the pizzas - for which they pride themselves on their website - were dry and tasteless. We also ordered 6 portions of the cheesecake for dessert, all of which were still frozen through the middle. When we pointed this out to the staff, they were confrontational and unwilling to replace/take this off the bill. The night ended with them threatening to call the police, after we had insisted the dessert was taken off the bill, and requested a discount for the terrible service. In summary, I fully appreciate that New Year’s Eve is a busy night and this should be taken into account when eating out - we were perfectly aware of this, and more than happy to give the staff some leeway. However, the quality of the food when coupled with the rude and confrontational service means we will not be returning to eat, or drink, here again! Visited The Nine Elms Tavern on 2016-12-31
