Independent bar and restaurant group Darwin & Wallace has been confirmed as the sole pub operator to secure a site at Battersea Power Station's multi-million pound phase one development, Circus West.

The venue, named No29 will be the company's fifth site and will open in early 2017. It has been described as a modern interpretation of the local neighbourhood pub. The Circus West leisure development is to be located between the Power Station and Battersea Park, and will be home to a number of 'independent, authentic and artisan' shops and restaurants, according to developers.

Mel Marriott, Darwin & Wallace managing director said: 'We are all incredibly excited to be a part of Battersea Power Station's regeneration development and the growing community within it.

'Together with our team of artisans and carefully selected suppliers, we are looking forward to seeing our vision of a modern twenty first century pub, complete with unique design, food and drink paired with the spirit of Battersea come to life in No29.'

No29 will offer an all-day casual bar dining experience, with a focus on locally sourced food. The décor is to be inspired by the architecture of Battersea Power Station.

The group opened its first location, No 11 Pimlico Road in Belgravia in 2012, followed by No 32 The Old Town in Clapham in 2014. Other sites include No 1 Duke Street, which opened in Richmond in late 2015. Its latest venue is set to open in Chiswick this April. The company is backed by London hospitality investment group, The Imbiba Partnership.
