ADDRESS
3 Viaduct Gardens Road, Battersea, Embassy Gardens, London SW11 7AY

Nearby

Darby's Robin Gill, who judges the Irish version of Masterchef and who owns and runs The Dairy and the Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurant Sorella in Clapham, is behind Darby's restaurant in Embassy Gardens towers. The most striking feature of the tower is the swimming pool passage suspended 35 metres up. Dishes on offer at Darby's on the ground floor can be ordered by residents and visitors using the Sky Pool ten floors up. Drinks brewed on site, including homemade stout and vermouth, are served from a poolside bar operated by Gill and his team. Back on firm ground, the kitchen has an open fire to prepare ethically sourced ingredients for the menu of Irish-influenced dishes. "Darby's is named after my father", Gill told the Evening Standard, "He spent a lot of time in the States and his era was 40s and 50s and for me it's... what he would have loved."
