“Some people dare tread the space between Clapham Junction and Battersea, and some people barely know it’s there, but if there’s any reason to extend a short stroll up to St John’s Hill, it’s for this eclectic eatery. Here’s how we got on when we got up close and cocktail-personal with Powder Keg Diplomacy.
Clearly proud of their paraphernalia and not lacking in theme, the interior tact of Powder Keg Diplomacy isn’t hard to miss. Split between main bar area out the front and greenhouse-led dining out back, PKD is a bygone babe of British proportions. Brimming with colonial cool and Victorian temptations, the vintage trinkets, flitting of ferns and classic dining tables bring about not only a true, but a very cool air of history. More than just a resurrection restaurant, Powder Keg Diplomacy honours British tradition and plays with theming all the same; a space that became the dangling carrot to my donkey as soon as we walked through the door”
