Brunch in Battersea Park, London

With British Summer Time in full swing, there’s nothing better than grabbing a bite to eat in the sunshine with your friends. I happily give you one of the newest outdoor hotspots in the heart of London’s Battersea Park.

After a refurb during the winter, Pear Tree Café has been brought to life by Annabel Partridge and Will Burrett who met while working at Petersham Nurseries (another Lady Leopard favourite!) I was intrigued one lunchtime and headed down to see what all the fuss was about.
